It’s often said that Aussie garage doors are one of the few things that are still built to last a lifetime. But what if that term is coming to an end? Doors that are 30, 40 or 50 years old have certainly served your home well – but there comes a time when even they need to be retired.
It can be hard to say goodbye, but there are several reasons it might be time to get a new garage door, so it can serve your home for the decades to come. Here, The Garage Door Guys outline 3 reasons it’s time to get a new garage door:
1. Your garage door needs more repairs than what it’s worth
If your garage door is simply hanging onto its tracks by a thread, 1) you shouldn’t be using it and 2) you should be checking out our garage door brochures immediately. Sometimes, a garage door that’s sustained sudden or gradual damages isn’t worth repairing, because it costs less to buy a replacement door.
This can be the case for mechanical damages like a combination of track and spring replacements, as well as cosmetic damages involving cars, fallen trees or storms. A technician from The Garage Door Guys will quickly be able to tell you whether it’s time to get a new garage door, or if your door can be repaired.
2. You’re putting your home on the market
If you’re putting your home on the meerkat, then the decision is ‘simples’: it’s time for a garage door upgrade. The façade is one of the most important areas to focus on when you’re selling the home. By beautifying your home’s façade, you’re increasing its curb value – the attractiveness of the home when seen from the side of the street.
First impressions count, and a new garage door can help to make an excellent first impression on potential buyers. In fact, a garage door can add more than 133% value back to your home, compared with what it costs.
3. You have a vision for your home
Sometimes, it’s OK to be a little house proud. Having a vision for your home is great; you’re increasing your happiness at home by investing in it, and making it your dream home. If a new garage door is part of the vision for your home, then it’s definitely time for an upgrade.
