How Keeping Your Old Garage Door Might Cost You More Than Installing a New One

First, season’s greetings and best wishes for a happy 2018 from all of us here at Whitby Garage Doors!

If you haven’t replaced your old garage door for a long time, you might not be aware of two important facts. First, new doors are surprisingly more affordable than most people think. Second, if you haven’t researched them recently, there are probably more benefits to them than you think.

Why are those two points so important? Because they can add up to mean that it might cost you more money to keep your old door instead of installing a new one.

Here’s just a few examples of how this can happen

Added Cost to Heat and Cool Your Home

If your garage is attached to your home, the door can have a measurable effect on the cost of heating and air conditioning. Newer, insulated garage doors significantly reduce the heat transfer out of the door in winter and in through the door in summer, making it less expensive to heat and cool your home.

And you save even more money when you don’t have to repair and/or replace your HVAC equipment as often because they have less work to do.

Lower Curb Appeal

As the single largest part of the look of your home, your garage door greatly influences the overall look of the house. Even if you’re not selling, and don’t care so much about curb appeal, you will not get full value from investments in landscaping and exterior renovations when your old, rickety garage door is their backdrop.

Safety Issues

The safety of everything in your garage is compromised by having an older, weaker door. And considering that the garage is one of the most popular ways for burglars to enter your home, that old door compromises the safety of your home, all your belongings and your family too.

Going back to the beginning, installing a new garage door is probably not as costly as you think, and you get more benefits compared to your old door. So maybe it’s time to call us here at Whitby Garage Door and let us show you how you can save money by buying a new garage door.
