Your garage door is an important part of your home. Of course, your garage door’s main purpose is to protect your vehicle and the other contents of your garage. But your garage door also provides extra insulation and increases the overall curb appeal of your home. If you intend to sell your property one day, a well-maintained garage door can increase your home’s value.
However, there are ways a bad garage door can negatively affect you and your property. If your garage door is showing any of the following signs, it’s time to get rid of it and install a new door.
Signs You Need a Garage Door Replacement
Sagging is a common issue with older garage doors made of wood. Without proper maintenance, the wood will decompose and rot over time. Doors made of other materials may sag over time as well. If you notice sagging, call a garage replacement service immediately.
Faulty Safety Mechanisms
Your garage door should have safety mechanisms in place to prevent your loved ones by getting shut on accidentally. If the automatic reverse device doesn’t trigger as it should, it’s time to consider a garage door replacement.
Damaged Beyond Repair
Huge garage door dents are ugly and do nothing to increase your curb appeal. Furthermore, bad dents can affect the overall function of your door. If your door isn’t able to open or close because it is warped, you’re going to want to find a new door.
Has your home had the same garage door since the 80s? Update that door to modernize your house and increase your curb appeal. Your neighbors will thank you, and you’ll attract more buyers if you decide to put your home up on the market.
If you are considering new garage doors for your home, consider getting garage door insurance. If you do encounter any problems, you’ll be covered and your replacement service will provide a solution free of cost — just don’t crash your car through the door.
