When Should You Buy A New Garage Door?

Buying a new garage door is a big purchase that you should carefully think about. There are many important reasons for buying a new garage door. Perhaps you’re unsure if you should wait or do it right away. The team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of Hartford has some helpful advice on when you should buy a new door.

Updating The Outside Of Your Home

Updating your home’s exterior is a good reason to buy a new door. Newer models are a great way to increase the curb appeal of your property. These models also have newer features that add convenience for your everyday life.

A new door will also increase your property values. If you’re thinking about selling your home in the near future, a new door is an added bonus for potential buyers. Garage door manufacturers offer a wide range of materials, style, and insulation options.

Increasing Security

If you have an older door, chances are the parts are wearing out. A door that is not working properly can cause security issues in your home. Rusted parts, gaps in the springs, or unaligned tracks will prevent your door from opening or closing. This eventually creates an unsafe home.

New models come ready with a variety of security features. Some of these extra features are optional when you buy the door. Most newer models come with features such as:

  • Keyless entry
  • WiFi connections
  • Smartphone pairing
  • Security camera installations
  • And more…

A new model will give you better security than your older model. Buying a door with higher security will give better peace of mind.

Your Current Model Is Worn Out

Is your door making strange noises? If you hear clanking, grinding, or squeaking noises when your door runs through a cycle, it’s time to replace those parts. The parts on your door will wear out at different times. This depends on how often you use your door.

Another area to look at is the panels on your door. If you have bent or damaged panels, the door is not protecting your garage enough. Your local garage door expert can give you advice on choosing the right model for your door.

Other Factors To Consider

Upgrading and replacing an old model are great reasons to buy a new door. There are also a few things to think about.

What Size Do You Need?

You need to think about the size and space of your garage before you buy a new door. Garage doors come in all shapes and sizes. A professional will measure your space and offer advice on the perfect door that fits your home.

What is the Cost You Can Afford? 

The cost of a new door varies with style and materials. For example, you can choose materials such as wood, vinyl, glass, or steel to name a few. You should also think about installation costs. Professional installation can cost anywhere from $300-$1,200 depending on the materials.

These are some helpful tips to help you buy a garage door. The team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of Hartford is always here to answer your questions about pricing, installation, or choosing materials. We’d love to help you.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
