Your old garage door has been a loyal companion, and stuck with you through many harsh winters and sizzling summers.

But there comes a time when a replacement is necessary, and here are the top 5 reasons why you should do this sooner rather than later:

1. Improving Your Home’s Security

Would-be burglars aren’t rocket scientists. They take the path of least resistance, and that means they target homes that don’t necessarily appear to have the most valuable items, but rather homes that seem to have the weakest security. And one of the first places they look is garage doors. Getting a new one will instantly boost your home’s security, and could mean the difference between a burglar paying you a visit – or passing on by.

2. Improving Safety

While your garage door almost certainly isn’t hanging by a proverbial thread, it doesn’t take much for older models – or even some newer, but inferior models – to turn into a safety hazard for you, your family, pets, guests and neighbours. Don’t wait for an injury to occur. Be proactive, and get the peace of mind you need.

3. Boosting Your Home’s Value

Whether you plan on selling your home in the near future or perhaps not for a while, it’s always beneficial when you can combine home improvement with boosting your home’s value. A new, high quality garage door will instantly enhance your home’s value, which will factor into your eventual selling price. It’ll also boost your home’s “curb appeal”, which could lead to higher offers from many eager buyers.

4. Enhancing Your Home’s Beauty

Your garage door is something that you see virtually every day – or probably multiple times a day. If it’s worn out, dented or doesn’t fit with the overall décor of your home, then you’re not enjoy your home as much as you deserve. By replacing your garage door, you’ll instantly notice a positive difference – and so will your enviable neighbours!

5. The Noise is Nauseating

Whether it’s the sound of cars zooming on the road, kids playing ball, airplanes flying overhead, or anything else that happens outside, a poorly insulated or installed garage door won’t keep the noise outside – instead you’ll hear it in your living room, bedroom, kitchen…everywhere. A new garage door can immediately make your living space a quieter and more peaceful environment. You may even sleep better!
