Benefits of a New Garage Door

Transform the look of your loved ones home by purchasing them a new garage door. They’ll reap many benefits!

Aside from increasing a home’s curb appeal/resale value, AND offering excellent Return on Investment, new garage door offers other advantages:

  • Reduced maintenance: Modern garage doors are made from materials that need less maintenance. For cleaning, many only require mild detergent and water. And, no more scraping paint to apply a fresh coat each year! Regular service will ensure peak performance.
  •  Increased safety: New garage door systems are required to have safety sensors that prevent the door from closing if they sense anything in it’s path.
  • Quieter operation: Old garage doors and their worn parts make a great deal of noise. Non-insulated garage doors can allow a lot of road noise into the home. A tight fitting, insulted door can make a significant difference in sound reduction.
  • New insulated garage doors increase energy efficiency of the home and lower energy bills.
  • Differentiates the home from the rest of the neighbourhood.
