When it comes to household conveniences, garage doors and their accessories can sometimes take the back seat to the more spell-binding electronics such as the latest flat screen or the newest cell phone. However, it may interest you to know that garage doors also have the opportunity to be upgraded. Of course the argument can be made that if it isn’t broken, why fix it?

Your garage door is the unspoken hero of this article and there are 4 good reasons as to why replacing your old door with a newer model can not only improve the value of your home, but can be the Will to your saving Grace.

1. Garage Doors need to be insulated. Even with the tightest of seals on your doors and windows, you can lose precious heat in the winter. Adding insulated panels, fixing alignment, re-securing the bottom seal of the door can save you hundreds in heating costs.

2. Installing a new garage door can add value to your home. A stylish new garage door can increase curb appeal as well as the listing price if you are looking to sell your home. If you’re a new home-owner and have children or plan on having children, a preventative maintenance is crucial to ensure safety with your sensors and door opener.

3. New Garage door openers can be installed with a back-up battery. While your flat screen may not work in the event of a power outage, rest assured that you can safely gain access to your home through your garage.

4. There’s an app for that! Has your teen ever been locked out of the house while you were still at work? Did you remember to bring your remote into the rental car? No key, and the battery on your remote is dead? Your problems are solved with the ability to activate your garage door opener via your Smartphone.
