When is the time for garage door replacement?

Your garage door is possibly the heaviest piece of machinery in your house. Daily use and weather elements cause gradual deterioration and downtime that can be usually taken care with regular inspection and fixes. Lubricating the moving parts, tightening hardware and timely replacement of damaged components go a long way in improving the life of your garage door.

However, a time comes when simple repairs and preventive maintenance won’t help. And repairs make sense only if you happen to have a relatively new garage door system. In addition, your garage door may be lacking latest features, thus compromising safety, security and convenience.

Tired of your garage door giving you a rough time every other day? Are you pouring a lot of dollars in fixes? Dents and discoloration marring the curb appeal? Bent, broken or rusted parts that pose serious risk to the safety of self, pets and loved ones? Well, installing a new garage door could help.

Here are some signs that you need garage door replacement

  1. Frequent calls to your garage door repair company
  2. Garage door with outdated safety and security features
  3. Garage door that is beginning to sag
  4. Unusual noise or excessive vibrations while opening or closing the garage door
  5. Garage door getting difficult to open and close
  6. Garage door getting stuck often during operation
  7. Noticeable sections that look worn-out, broken or frayed, such as rollers, springs and tracks
  8. Higher utility bills due to poor insulation
  9. Need to improve curb appeal
  10. Want to attract potential homebuyers and add value to your home

While a timely diagnosis and repair can resolve some of these issues, it is important to understand that constant repairs can be a waste of time and money in most cases, especially when you have a really old garage door unit. Your local and reputable garage door specialist can help you determine if parts replacement or repair will suffice, or whether you should go for complete garage door replacement.

Whether you want to get a brand new garage door to match the exterior of your house or to save money on frequent repairs and parts replacement, one thing is certain that latest models and designs will delight you with their strength and features.

Modern garage door systems are equipped with multiple safety and security mechanisms like rolling code technology and are easy to integrate with home automation devices and smart phones.

These features will fetch you great returns on investment, adding significant value to your home.
