Is it Time to Replace Your Garage Door?

Buying a new garage door is probably not the first item on your wish list. However, considering your garage door is most likely the largest entrance to your home, it is worth the investment. Once they begin to wear, an old garage door can detract from the beauty of your home, as well as become a safety and security problem. Here are a few signs that it is time to replace your garage door in 2015:

  • Operation issues. If you notice that your old garage door hesitates or makes excessive noise as it’s opening or closing, it may be time to replace your door and hardware. Over the years, the hardware and door can become dented, weak and rusted, making it difficult for the door to function. This puts extra stress on your opening system, reducing the life-span.
  • Energy costs. For homes with attached garages, a poorly insulated garage door can affect the energy costs for the whole home. Worn weather stripping and inferior insulation in the door can let in outside air, costing you plenty in energy bills.
  • Curb appeal. Your garage door is one of the first things people see when they come to your home. If the door is dented, has peeling paint or cracks, it can become an eyesore that detracts from the curb appeal of your home. A new garage door can make a big difference in the overall appearance of your home.

If your garage door is 15-20 years old, there is a good chance that it’s time to consider replacing it with a newer model. Talk to your local garage door service company about the many beautiful and efficient garage door models that are available.
