Five Facts About Your Garage Door

You likely use your garage door at least once a day. Opening and closing it often becomes second nature. However, you may be enlightened if you take a few minutes to think about how important your garage door is to your home.

Garage Doors Can Save Lives

With sensors and automatic stops in place, you don’t have to worry about your children being accidentally trapped under a garage door. Safety can go even further, however. With openers that utilize technology which allows you to monitor, manage, and control your garage door from your smartphone, you won’t have to worry about whether someone left the garage unlocked.

Garage Doors Protect from Storms

High winds can rip apart a dilapidated garage door. A new garage door can protect your home from incurring damage in bad weather. This means your belongings kept inside the garage will stay safe and dry.

Insulated Garage Doors Save Money

Yes, garage doors can be insulated! This sometimes comes as a shock to homeowners and we’re happy to surprise you with great news. If you have an attached garage without an insulated garage door, you could be cooling the outdoors this summer. An insulated garage door is truly an investment worth looking into. Check with your energy provider to see if you may be eligible for a tax break for installing an insulated garage door.

Garage Doors Can Increase Your Home’s Value

Curb appeal is important when buying a new home. A home with a manicured lawn and well-kept exterior shows potential buyers that the home has been well cared for and likely won’t cause any big problems down the line. On the other hand, that same home with a dingy, broken garage door isn’t likely to draw the same amount of interest. People will pay for peace of mind.

Express Your Personality with Your Garage Door

Housing developments are wonderful, but sometimes it’s hard for those houses to stand out. By choosing a more unique style of garage door for your home, you’re able to express some individuality. There are a number of garage doors to choose from, but you can also customize one to add extra flair to your home.
