5 Reasons to Upgrade Your Garage Door

Is dealing with your aging eye-sore of a garage door becoming more and more of an issue? Frequent repairs, decreased curb appeal, and poor energy efficiency are just a few of the ways that an out-of-date garage door can be a burden on your home. 

So why not invest in a new garage door? From improved home value to decreased maintenance, garage door replacement has incredible benefits for your home. Read below for the top five reasons to invest in a new garage door.

Top 5 Reasons to Invest in a New Garage Door

1. Increased Home Value

Number one reason to invest in a new garage door? It increases the value of your home! Garage door replacement maintains a 90% or more return on investment, meaning you recoup a vast majority of your new garage door cost when you sell your home. Whether you want to sell within the next year or even in five years, a new garage door is a proven way to attract buyers to your property. 

2. Better Curb Appeal

Over years of use and exposure to the outside elements, the surface of your garage door becomes worn and faded, becoming a major sore spot on your curb appeal. But trading out that aging recessed panel garage door with a modern black garage door or custom wood garage door gives you an incredible curb appeal boost. With garage doors covering 30% or more of your home’s exterior, it is easy to see how a beautiful new garage door can transform the look of your home. 

3. Advanced Safety and Security

As the primary entrance to your home and the place where you store cars and valuable equipment, it is important that your garage stays secure. Outdated garage doors and openers simply don’t have the safety and security measures necessary to defend your home. That’s why many homeowners upgrade their garage door system with the latest garage door safety and security technology. Heavy-duty steel garage doors, automatic locks, and rolling entrance codes are just a few of the ways a new garage door defends your home.

4. Improved Energy Efficiency 

As the largest opening in your home, the garage can become a major source of heating and cooling loss without the proper preventative steps. That is why investing in an insulated garage door is a huge benefit to your home. With thick layers of polystyrene or polyurethane insulation, your garage door is better equipped to prevent heating and cooling loss, improving the energy efficiency of your home. This means reduced energy costs for you and a more comfortable home for your family. 

5. Reduced Maintenance 

Aging garage door systems require frequent maintenance and repairs to run reliably, especially toward the end of their lifespan. If you have to schedule multiple service appointments a year for your garage door, it may be time to invest in a new one. A new garage door comes with a new garage door system – meaning brand new, freshly tightened and lubricated parts. This means quiet, reliable garage door operation for years to come. 

Ready to Explore Options for Garage Door Replacement?

As you can see from the five reasons above, investing in a new garage door has significant benefits for the value, efficiency, and security of your home. If your garage door is reaching 20+ years of use or you are considering selling your home soon, garage door replacement may be the best next step for you.

  • Did an amazing job!!! Came out inspected my needs to make sure we got the right opener. Ordered it and came back and installed it perfectly. Having the new opener on my metal barn roll up door has made life easier and more convenient. Would definitely recommend and will use them again in the future.

  • I had a full garage door replacement completed at a rental property of mine. I obtained many different quotes from all over the metroplex. Ellis price was completive with most of the quotes I received but what made him stand out was ability to get the job done quickly. I called him on a Saturday and he answered and stated he could have it done Monday morning. He texted me at 8am that he began the job and by 10:30 am he was finished and even hauled the old door away. I highly recommend him and his company.
