Garage doors are an important element in your home. They maintain the security of your property and protect your cars, tools and storage area and also provide a great aesthetic to your home.
Garage doors are built to last and while yours might have stuck with you through thick and thin – harsh winters and scorching summers, there comes a time when you’ll need to consider replacing them.
Garage doors, depending on their material, can sometimes warp in the heat or become damp in the cold, wet weather making them less secure. Fashions also change, meaning you may want to upgrade your garage door simply to keep up with the trends.
Garage doors conceal some of your most valuable items. You’ll store your car, bike, gardening equipment and tools in the garage. For a burglar, this can be an easy access point to get to your most valuable equipment without alerting anyone in the main house, especially if your garage is detached.
Upgrading your garage doors will help to deter burglars as they tend to select the path of least resistance to give them an easy escape. If your garage door is clearly new, and therefore, more secure, a burglar may think better of it and move on.
Upgrading your garage doors gives you the edge on your neighbours. Just like everything else, fashion changes with garage doors and it’s important to stay ahead of the game. An old garage door can make your whole property seem more dated.
Getting a new garage door allows you to change the material and update the design, making you the envy of the street.
Your garage door essentially takes up a whole wall. This is a lot of heat lost and outside noise gained if your garage door is old and not very insulated.
New garage doors are likely to provide more insulation protecting your home from cold drafts if you have an integrated garage and saving you money on heating. It could also keep out unwanted noises such as loud motorbikes or other traffic from outside.
If your garage is separate from your home, the improved insulation of a brand-new garage door will also help to protect anything in there, giving you a more reliable storage space. If the damp and cold air can’t enter the garage, then you’re less likely to find damp storage boxes or fabrics in there.
It’s something you rarely think about, but a garage door is one of the first things you see when pulling up to a property due to its size. If you intend to sell your house in the future, a new garage door can actually increase the value of your home due to the extra security and insulation and make it easier to sell, just because of the amazing appearance.
New garage doors also require less maintenance, saving you time, stress and extra cost in the future.
