Replacing your old garage door can change the entire appearance of your home and have many other abundant advantages. Here are the top five reasons to replace your old garage door.
1. Increase the Value of Your Home. According to the National Associations of Realtors, a new garage door is one of the best ways to improve your home with the confidence of receiving a solid return on your investment (ROI) when it’s time to sell.
2. Increase Curb Appeal. With many homes, the garage door(s) are a large percentage of the front of the home. This means your garage door is the first thing anyone sees. Removing your old door with a new ascetically pleasing door can change the entire look of your home. Take a moment to check out JV Garage Door’s Before and After Pinterest Board to see some great examples of how a new garage door can really increase curb appeal.
3. Reduce Energy Loss. Old garage doors lose a ton of heat. Not only do the old wooden or non-insulated doors have low R-Value but over time the door moves and leaves large gaps for air to travel through resulting in energy loss. With proper installation, a new insulated garage door can greatly reduce energy loss. You will be able to feel the difference.
4. Increase Security. Many homeowners leave their interior door that leads from the garage to the home unlocked assuming the exterior garage door will keep them safe and secure. This may not be the case if it is an old wooden door, which can easily be kicked in or drilled through, especially if the door is in poor condition. It is much more difficult to break through a steel door and when coupled with a new opener with advanced security features you can rest assured that you are much safer.
5. Increase Garage Use. A garage can be used as so much more than a place to park a vehicle. Many people use their garage space for storage, as a game room, a studio, or a workshop. By having a profession install a garage door with an R-Value above 12 you can provide a comfortable environment for whatever you want to use your garage for and keep anything you choose in your garage safe from the elements.
