3 Reasons to Update Your Garage Door

3 reasons to update your garage doorWhen you come and go from your home each day, you may not stop to think much about your garage door as long as it functions. Yet there are many reasons to upgrade your garage door, including the benefits a new one can bring to your home.

1. Enhanced Curb Appeal

Your garage door is a notable feature of your home’s exterior. As a result, its style, color and condition play a role in your home’s curb appeal. A more attractive face with an updated garage door can raise your home’s value and fetch higher resale prices.

Industry-leading manufacturer Clopay® offers an extensive collection of residential garage doors to match any homeowner’s personality and taste. Choose from low-maintenance steelgenuine woodtimeless carriage house styles and more for a door that truly complements your home. 

2. Better Energy Efficiency

Everyone likes to save money, and a new garage door can help you do just that. Older entries may lack the same multilayer insulation as new ones, and damaged doors don’t fit well. As a result, they let unwelcome hot or cold air into your home and drive up energy costs, especially in garages beneath living spaces. These aged models also expose your stored valuables to temperature extremes.

Upgraded doors will make heating or cooling your garage more efficient, creating more livable spaces for workshops or hobbies.

3. Improved Security

One of the best reasons to replace your garage door is to enjoy enhanced security for the things that matter most. Thanks to advanced technology, today’s garage doors offer better protection against would-be burglars. When paired with new smart garage door openers, you get features like cameras and automatic locking. Plus, options like window frosting will hide the interior from prying eyes, so thieves are less tempted by the contents of your garage.
