Four reasons to update your garage door

When it comes to upgrading or renovating your property, the humble garage door is often overlooked, and there’s no reason it should be. Why put up with old, timeworn, and weatherbeaten garage doors, when you wouldn’t do it with any other aspect of your house?

Here are four reasons to get your garage doors updated today.

Increase the value of your home

A modern garage door, aside from lasting longer and needing less maintenance, gives your home an attractive look. Should you decide to sell your property, the sight of a pristine set of garage doors is very attractive to would-be buyers, and can drive up the sale price accordingly.

A better look for your home

Garage doors take up quite a bit of space – up to 40% of the front view of your house, in many cases – so it’s worth investing in garage doors that make a good first impression, since they’re literally the first thing people will see when they approach your home. There are so many options available for you to customise the look and overall effect of your garage door, whether you want it to stand out, or blend in with the rest of the property.

Energy efficiency

Older garage doors tend not to be insulated, and are notorious for letting heat escape from the garage. If your garage is attached to the house, it can have a significant impact on the overall energy efficiency of your home. Replacing an inefficient, old garage door with a modern, insulated one helps to prevent heat loss, and lead to a reduction in your monthly heating bills.

Greater home security

Often, the easiest way to gain access to a home is through the attached garage and, sadly, older garage doors are susceptible to break-ins. Modern garage doors are not only stronger, and more robust, but come complete with a range of security options, from keypad openers for secure entry to auto-raise remotes for your car.
