Why You Should Consider a New Garage Door This Spring

Hello, warm weather and April showers! Spring has finally sprung, which means one of the busiest times of year has begun. While there’s bound to be a lot on your plate this spring season, we believe in the importance of preserving the place that protects you and your family– your home. Take time these next few months to consider what updates or maintenance your home might need. As for us, we’d like to take a moment to sing the praises of installing a new garage door.

Why Should You Upgrade?

Depending on how old your current door is, it might be time for a new one, regardless of whether there are any blatant issues. Anything on your home’s exterior will receive a beating over time from the elements, and making sure you keep up to date with replacements is key. When you choose Schaefer to install a new garage door, we use Clopay, a company whose doors are constructed of sturdy, reliable materials available in a variety of colors and finishes. You can rest assured your new door will be both visually appealing and functional.

It’s also great to give your garage door a bit of a makeover if you’ve recently completed another home improvement project such as new siding or roofing. The older color and style of your door might not match your new home exterior, or the vast differences in wear might be a little jolting.

What’s So Great About Garage Doors, Anyway?

Plenty, of course! First and foremost, a quality garage door serves as a safe, secure entrance to your home. Just like your front door, it’s a central aspect of both home security and comfort. Garage doors add another layer of safety between your home’s interior and anything you’d want to keep out– plus it protects any vehicles, tools, toys, and storage items you might keep inside the garage.

Features included in garage doors are also important to consider. How easily will it open when you’re pulling up after a long day, or your kids are coming through after school? You’ll want to make sure they open and close reliably with the click of a button so you don’t have to wait around every morning making sure the door is shut tight. If you don’t want a bunch of garage door openers floating around, consider adding a keypad for anyone entering on foot. A simple four digit code is easy for your kids to remember and much harder to misplace than a remote!

Last but not least, a brand-new garage door adds important curb appeal to your home. Like we said, spring is the season for new beginnings, and plenty of homeowners choose to put their houses up on the market around this time. Even if moving isn’t in your cards this year, maintaining the visual appeal of your home’s exterior is always a great investment. Who knows when it might come in handy? Plus, it feels pretty good to be confident about the place you call home.
