Think it might be time to install a garage door? If your old garage door is outdated or no longer functioning correctly it’s time to think about getting a replacement installed. Home maintenance is important to all homeowners, and your garage door plays a key role in the functionality and security of your home.  Many customers now are making driveways more secure by blocking them off with a new roller door.

Here are five more reasons to install a garage door.

Install a Garage Door

Add Value to your Home

Believe it or not, a garage door can add some serious value to your home. A new, modern and most importantly, quiet garage door creates more appeal to potential buyers who may be interested in purchasing your home. An old and outdated garage door can become a bit of an eyesore, even if it’s still in working order. Updating and installing a new garage door will increase your curb appeal.

Creates greater security

Old garage doors tend to be attractive to potential intruders as they’re often easier to break into than modern garage doors. While they can’t offer you absolute protection from threats if you install a garage door with up to date security you’ll give your home and your family the best chance of avoiding a robbery.

Increase the utility of your home

The great thing about garages is that you can store all of your odds and ends that don’t have a place inside your home. Many homeowners like to set up a workshop inside their garage to complete messy DIY projects. If you install a garage door you can be sure that all your belongings will be kept safe and secure.

Lower your insurance premiums

You read that right, having a modern garage door with up to date security technology can influence how much you pay in home and contents insurance. Again, this is because modern garage doors are a lot more secure than old outdated garage doors. Less chance of a robbery means more money saved on insurance premiums. If that’s not a reason to install a garage door I don’t know what is!

Safety first

Last but certainly not least is safety. If you install a garage door you can help to minimise the risk of personal injury or injury to your family. Most modern garage doors come with a sensor that can detect when there is an object obstructing the door. The door will automatically reverse and stay open until the obstruction is removed. This can help to put your mind at ease, especially if you have children that like to play in the garage.
