How old is your garage door? Is it time for an upgrade? Do you even know? A lot of people couldn’t tell you offhand how long they have had the current garage door that is on their home. For the most part this isn’t a huge concern if the door continues to work right. However, there are some big things to consider with having an older garage door.
The first thing you want to make sure of is that you’ve had all of the parts and safety mechanisms tested recently. It is so important to make sure everything is working correctly so you don’t have an accident with the door falling.
Next, you want to think about the age of the door because they are advancing in technology and big safety features are typically added to garage doors every decade. So, if your door is more than 10 years old it doesn’t necessarily mean you have to upgrade it but you might want to consider it to make sure you have the newest technology and safest possible door on your home.
The last thing you want to think about is how the garage door looks to people driving by. If your garage door looks old or worn out it will make your entire house look the same way which can really decrease the overall value of the home because people will not like looking at it. In this case an upgrade can really help, especially if you are looking to sell your home!
