If your garage door is looking worn out, out of date and isn’t operating properly, it is time to consider a new garage door replacement. Beyond improving the way your home and garage look, there are many benefits to installing a new garage door. Overhead Door Company of Edmonton shares 5 reasons to replace your old garage door.
Increase your home’s value.
Garage doors have come a long way over the years! A modern garage door will require less maintenance, last longer and give your home a refreshed and attractive aesthetic appeal. If you should ever decide to sell your home, this enhanced curb appeal will be more attractive to potential buyers and will drive up your resale value.
Your home will look better.
In most homes with an attached garage, the garage door takes up to 40% of your home’s façade! It’s literally the first thing you and others see when approaching your home. Investing in a new garage door will improve the way your home looks, again boosting that curb appeal for potential buyers or for your own personal enjoyment.
With so many options for new garage doors available on the market today, you’ll be able to customize the look of your garage door so it blends perfectly with your home’s design and matches entry doors, windows, trim and other exterior features.
New garage doors are energy efficient.
Older garage doors are not typically insulated and will allow energy to escape from your garage. This can really bring down your home’s overall efficiency if you have an attached garage. All that warm air will escape out of your home into your garage and right out the door! Replacing that old inefficient garage door with a new, top-of-the-line insulated one will help prevent heat transfer and you’ll start saving on your monthly energy bills.

Improve home security.
In many cases the easiest way to access a home is through the garage. If your garage door opener is older, or you manually open your garage or forget to close it, you could be susceptible to potential break ins. Modern garage door openers come with a keypad for secure entry and an auto-raise remote for your car. Some technology will even allow you to control your garage door with your smart phone, tablet or computer, even when you are away from the home! Learn how to choose a garage door opener.
Reduce noise in and around your garage.
Older garage door openers are known to loudly grumble and grind. A modern garage door opener will use quieter technology like a rubber belt, which is quieter than the standard chain drive. Not only will it be quieter when you open and close your garage, you’ll notice that your new insulated garage door will keep outside noise out of the garage as well.
