Replacing your garage door can be a significant undertaking. Researching styles, construction, installation, and more can be overwhelming. You shouldn’t let those hurdles intimidate you or keep you from completing a needed replacement. Do not wait until the door is falling apart to being researching replacement options. Here are some other reasons you should consider replacing your garage door.
Safety Features Outdated
Do the safety sensors on your garage door opener work properly? Does the emergency stop on the door itself hold properly during manual operation? Risks to your family’s lives and health due to outdated or malfunctioning safety features should not be tolerated. Malfunctioning safety eyes, exposed sharp edges, failing rollback protection, and similar risks should motivate you to look into replacement options.
New Function Needed
Are you remodeling your garage to turn it into a den, apartment, or other living space? If so, you should update it to fit the changes to your area. Different designs serve different functions and can offer benefits such as improved insulation, noise reduction, improved security, and more. Adding options such as windows can make the space feel more like a home and less like a converted garage. Take time to review your replacement options and select something designed to meet your functional needs.
Security at Risk
Does your garage door have deadbolts? Do you use them? Does an automatic lack fail on occasion? If your home and family’s security is at risk due to an outdated garage door, you should look into replacements or other solutions. New garage doors and openers offer improved locks, smart technology, and other features to help keep your home and family safer.
Design Needs to Be Updated
When you look at your home from the curb does your garage door add to its aesthetic? Garage doors can often stand out like a sore thumb from other home facade updates. In fact, your garage door can make up as much as 30% of your home’s curb-facing design. Updating your home’s look with a new design for your garage door can improve your curb appeal and add to your home’s value while improving functions. Numerous styles are available to fit your desired look.
