Most homeowners don’t think too much about their garage doors, but they are actually one of the most useful and valuable parts of a home. When done right, a garage door can provide added utility to the space of the property, increase curb appeal and the value of the property, and contribute to the overall safety and security of your home. So if something isn’t quite right and you’re noticing noises when using your garage door, it might be time for a new one. Here are some signs that you need a new garage door this summer.
Unpleasant Noise and Breakdowns
A garage door that doesn’t work in the way it’s supposed to can become a safety liability, putting you and your family at risk. If you’re finding that the service calls are increasing in frequency, a new garage door might be the next logical solution and make more sense than continuing to call the repairman.
Out of Style
Did you know that garage doors take up at least 40% of the facade of the average home? That usually means that as the garage door goes, so goes the overall aesthetic of your property. If you have a garage door that is woefully out of style, replacing it with a new one can help restore curb appeal to your facade and increase the value of your property.
A new garage door can offer many safety and efficiency functions that the doors of yesteryear lack. They provide much better insulation than in the past and can be equipped with features designed to make them safer to use. In addition, they can be outfitted with security technology to complement your other home security systems and smart home technology to connect with your devices. These reasons may be enough to push you to have a modern new garage door installed.
Changing the Function of Your Garage
If you’re changing the way you use your garage, a new door may be the most important component of your remodeling plans. In fact, modern garage doors come not just in utilitarian designs but also stylish ones, with beautiful aesthetics and glass window features that may be suited to your project and your garage’s new purpose.
