There are always, always items on your “home improvement list.” Some items are more pressing than others depending upon your present circumstances and budget. While new furniture may be a big desire, replacing your AC unit before summer takes priority here in Georgia. Painting your house, both inside and out, is definitely a priority if you plan to put your house on the market to sell any time soon. There are also other improvements that may slip through the cracks if you are not careful, some of which can provide a significant return on investment – which is always a good thing!
Replacing your old garage door is proven to provide a return on investment. Knowing when to replace your old garage door can not only add curb appeal to your home, but it can save you money by replacing it before dire issues cause a substantial expense. Here are a few ways to know when to replace your old garage door:
- Slowness. If your garage door responds slowly when you raise or lower it, it is time to replace it. Your garage door should respond immediately once you hit the opener button. Any sort of delay, especially a lengthy pause, typically means that your garage door is on its last leg.
- Noise. A properly running garage door should run relatively quietly. As garage doors age, several factors make it round louder and less smoothly. If there is a sudden increase in the noise that your garage door makes when it opens and closes, this is typically a sign that your unit needs to be replaced soon.
- Unattractive. Many people overlook their garage door when it comes to the overall look of the home, yet it is a prominent feature. An outdated, faded, dented, or all around unattractive garage door detracts from the appearance of your home. A new garage door can greatly enhance your home’s curb appeal and complement your home’s existing architecture and any new improvements.
- Unsafe. Garage doors that do not function properly can be extremely unsafe to anyone who enters or exits your garage. Not only that, but garage doors that do not function properly can also allow easy entrance for those you are trying to keep out: burglars. If your old garage door does not provide the safety and security that it should, it is time to replace it.
