One of the best investments you can make as a homeowner is to update your home with a new garage door. It will not only increase the resale value of your home, it can offer a lot of immediate benefits as well. Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Tulsa, OK has three ways you can update your home and enjoy these benefits.
Find A New Style
Is the look and style of your garage door out of date, or out of sync with the rest of your home? Maybe it’s time to change the style of door altogether. Consider going with a traditional door, carriage style door, or even a hybrid of the two.
Carriage style doors are a classic look reminiscent of horse and buggy days. Traditional roll-up doors are a little more compact, but may not have to old-world look you want. If you don’t have the space for outward opening doors, you can install simple hardware that gives a traditional door a carriage-style look.
Homeowners are becoming increasingly conscious about the efficiency and eco-friendliness of their homes. Be sure to buy a door that is going to have some environmental benefits to it, as well as for your home. Start by buying a high-quality door with a long life to prevent early removal and disposal.
Make sure to buy a door with the highest insulation R-value that you can so that your garage is well-insulated. Whether you heat and cool your garage or not, keeping it insulated against the elements is important ecologically. The temperature of your garage impacts the inside temperature of your house, causing an increased use of heating and air systems. This leads to excessive use of electricity and an increase in your carbon footprint.
Each year, new home-automation technology enters the market and therefore our homes. The Internet of Things is becoming a reality now that personal assistants are controlling our TVs, refrigerators, light bulbs, and even our washers and dryers. Don’t leave your garage door behind in the automation revolution!

- Control your garage door from anywhere in the world
- Let in your kids, neighbor, or delivery person with your phone
- Get alerts when your door is left open for too long
- Monitor your garage by connecting optional wireless cameras
