Whether you’re deciding between re-painting your garage door, fixing the lock, or just getting a new garage door entirely, we want to ensure that you’re making the best decision for your home in the long term. For that reason, we’ve put together a small guide with our top four advantages of installing a new garage door.

Added insulation

The exterior of your garage door, which will wear with age, is rarely insulated sufficiently. This means that colder air will enter your garage in the winter months, seeping into the rest of your home (which won’t be great for your heating bills). Likewise, your garage could become extremely hot in the summer months. By investing in new garage doors, your garage will have built-in insulation, which will keep the room at the optimal temperature all year around.

Energy efficiency

When cold air is entering your home in the winter months, you’ll have to increase your heating to keep the house warm. Not only is this not energy efficient, but it will also increase your bills. An insulated garage door will prevent this by enhancing the energy efficiency of your home.

Increases safety

Who doesn’t want to feel safe in their own home? We know everyone does – for themselves and their loved ones. An older, weaker garage door (as it’s more worn) will be more vulnerable and susceptible to theft and break-ins, which threatens the overall safety of your property. The newer materials used in modern garage doors will help deter thieves from breaking into your home, making it safer for your pets and children.

Kerb appeal

Not only will your house be stunning to look at, but it will also dramatically increase in value (should you want to sell it further down the line). What’s more, there many different colours, materials, and styles for you to choose from.
