You might be considering having a new garage door installed because the existing one isn’t functioning properly. Or maybe you’re having some remodeling done, and the old door needs to be updated. But did you know that having a new garage door installed will increase the overall value of your home?
A new garage door with up-to-date technology, such as sensors and a security garage door opener helps protect some of your most important investments: your home and your vehicles. With systems like LiftMaster, you can check on the status of your garage door at any time, from anywhere in the world, with an app on your phone. You also have complete remote control of your door. Who doesn’t want more security and control?
Depending on the home, the garage door takes up about thirty percent of that front wall of your house — the part people see from the curb. Occupying such a large percentage means it’s a big part of the overall curb appeal. The wow factor is important to prospective home buyers, and a new garage door helps contribute to that.
Opting for an insulated garage door is even better because of its energy efficiency. Especially in a large home, the cumulative cost of losing energy through the garage can add up.
Sometimes it’s easy to take safety for granted. After all, just because your old garage door is rickety and sticks occasionally doesn’t mean it’s unsafe, right? Not necessarily. The garage door opener uses a high-tension spring system which has a lifespan of about seven years. When it’s working correctly, it lifts a single door weighing about one hundred and forty pounds with no problem, but when it isn’t, that’s a lot of weight to be taking chances with. Naturally, having a safe, properly functioning garage door increases your home’s value.
