Top Five Benefits of a New Garage Door

Garage doors are generally pretty durable and last the suggested lifetime.  There does, however, come a time when all things need replacing, even if taken care of properly. The following will explain how your home and your bank account will be happy with the possibility of investing in a new garage door.

  1. Appearance

    The list of options to choose from for your garage doors continues to grow. Whether it be colors, finishes, hardware, or other available features, your door can get as customized and unique as you want. Installing a new door that you designed can change the look of your house entirely. Want to check it out?

  2. Updated Safety

    By designing your own garage door, you can also be in control of the most up-to-date security features to make your door as secure and safe as possible.  As technology improves, so does the quality of garage door openers. The most modern and advanced opener is designed for the safest operation. Additionally, getting a new garage door also limits the amount of access to your home – limiting access to individuals whose intentions are anything but lawful from entering. Statistics show that almost three quarters of burglaries in the U.S. occur in residential areas. 9% of that are those who entered through the garage, making it the 4th most common area someone has entered a home. A common belief some people have is that if something is locked, no one can get in. There are many tricks, even with a locked system, that a criminal will use to enter a home. Outside of stolen property, one must also consider the effects of the climate they live in. A proper air-tight fit will keep your things in shape and avoid possible damage.

  3. Energy Efficiency

    It is possible that the older the door you have, the more money you are wasting on energy costs. An attached garage can raise up the energy bill pretty quickly, since it affects the heating and cooling of your home to some degree. The Thermacore Collection is a prime example of a garage door system that will be energy efficent. This collection has an air infiltration rating of up to 0.08 cfm, which means that seals provide superior resistance to the elements. 

  4. Personal Style

    There are tons of options to choose from whether you want traditional, modern, wooden, or a little bit of country. With so many different options, you have the freedom to create a garage door perfect for your home. To help you understand just how many options we offer, here are a few of our collections and a small amount of information to inspire you.
    • Envy Collection: This collection is an all-aluminum, full-view, frameless garage door. Tempered glass panels are mounted on top of an aluminum structure for a modern frameless look, while a weather barrier is created by seals between tongue-and groove sections.
    • Courtyard Collection: These doors are made of insulated steel construction and designed to look like the elegant wood designs of traditional carriage house doors. They have the classic look of wood, but the durability of steel.

  5. Lower Maintenance Time and Cost

    The older something gets, the more maintenance it often requires. A new garage door is still going to need yearly maintenance for continued optimum use, but there will be less, if anything at all, to fix with newer and higher-quality parts. Investing in a new door now will save you money in the long run instead of paying a lot of money for continued repair on an older door.

Getting a new garage door is helpful in many ways and can be flexible on which features are more important to you.
