Let’s face it, no one likes throwing money out the window or replacing something that isn’t quite broken. However, garage doors are often times overlooked when parts of a home are considered for replacement or remodel. According to a recent New York Times article titled “Garage Doors for All Seasons,” this would be a mistake. Not only do garage doors factor into a home’s curb appeal, they can also be a significant source of heat loss.
When considering a replacement, a typical wood or fiberglass garage door can be replaced with an insulated steel door that not only won’t break the bank for replacement but could also save you hundreds of dollars a year in heating costs.
Installation of an automatic garage door is pretty popular with homeowner’s for a couple of reasons. 1) Convenience – who wants to get out of the car when the door can go up from inside the comforts of your vehicle especially in inclement weather? 2) All new automatic openers have federally mandated safety features which keep you and your children safe.
Why not update that garage door and save some money, add convenience to your life and boost your curb appeal!
