There are a variety of reasons that garage door replacement may be necessary, whether to improve curb appeal of your home, to save money on major repairs by investing in a new door, or to upgrade your door because you know your current door is nearing the end of its lifespan.
Here are three things to keep in mind when you are ready to replace your garage door:
- Garage door replacement is best handled by professionals. You might think you can save yourself a good chunk of change by installing your own garage door, but you do not gain much value by trying to DIY when it comes to garage doors. There are a lot of complex parts which take time to put together correctly, along with requiring specialized tools and skills. Trust the work to a professional who will be able to replace your garage door safely and efficiently.
- Spring for high-quality springs. Your garage door typically uses torsion springs, which are located above the door and help it go up and down easily and gently. Your standard springs are rated for 10,000 cycles, but you can spend a little bit extra to get twice the lifespan. Ask when you are getting a quote!
- Consider energy efficiency. When you are looking at garage door replacement, you can upgrade your door to one that has better insulation. If you have a living area above the garage, a workshop, or would like to convert your garage into living space, you can get a door with at least three layers to boost comfort and energy efficiency.
