4 Signs That it's Time to Replace Your Old Garage Door

Opening and closing multiple times a day, shielding your home and valuables from severe weather, or just old age can do a number on a reliable garage door.  It’s very easy to take a garage door for granted and often they go underappreciated until they start to show signs of wear and tear. The team at Banko Overhead Doors would like to provide you with 4 key signs to help you decide if it’s time for a garage door upgrade.

Multiple Garage Door Repairs

It’s fine to call the repair pros at Banko Overhead Doors whenever you need assistance, but it may be time for a total overhaul if you’ve noticed a serious increase in the service needs of your garage door. An old door that needs constant attention can turn into a money pit if you don’t upgrade. It’s often worth the investment in a new door to eliminate the expenses associated with constant repairs.

Failing Remote on garage door operator

Remotes and automatic opening systems are supposed to take care of the heavy lifting with the push of a button. If you’ve noticed problems with your garage door opening system that cannot be resolved with a change of batteries, it’s time for a professional inspection. You may need a new opener system, which is a great opportunity to upgrade by switching to the MyQ technology or a Wi-Fi enabled operator, allowing you to open or close your garage door from anywhere via your smartphone.

Safety, Energy Efficiency, and Noise Reduction

Modern garage doors provide great insulation, allowing you to increase your energy efficiency, bottom seals, weather strips, and sealing joints all help keep the wind/cold from entering the garage. Safety is also a huge priority, as your garage door is considered the family front door. With built- in safety features such as safety reversing sensors and an invisible light beam protection area, the risk of an accident occurring while your door is closing or opening is reduced.

Increase Curb Appeal

Nothing makes a property look as unattractive and unappealing as an outdated garage door. A sleek, new garage door can earn you a major return when it comes time to putting your house on the market. If your garage door is in poor condition or doesn’t complement your home the way it should, it’s time to update. There are many forms of modern garage doors to complement varying architectural designs. It is often worth the initial investment and rated top 5 ROI in home improvement according to “Remodeling Magazine.”
