Did you know that a new garage door can increase the curb appeal and value of your home? Home improvements, renovations, and additions are often focused on common areas like the kitchen, bathrooms, a deck or patio, or developing an unfinished basement. However, something as seemingly simple as changing your garage door can have a significant impact on your house. Here are just a few benefits of purchasing a new garage door in Calgary.

Increased curb appeal

As we mentioned above, a new garage door can increase your home’s curb appeal should you choose to sell it in the future. This factor is especially true if your garage is attached to your home and front-facing. Over time, a garage door experiences normal wear and tear against the elements in Calgary, from ice and snow, wind, heavy rain, and hail. Being that a front-facing garage door takes up quite a large piece of the aesthetics, it’s often the first thing people see.

An old, damaged, and worn garage door can be an eyesore and can bring the curb appeal of your home down significantly. Thankfully, garage door suppliers in Calgary have a range of styles to choose from that not only matches the aesthetics of your home but can enhance it.

Increases the safety of your home

Continuing on the wave of front-facing garage doors, your garage is the main point of entry and an opportunity for intruders to access your home. Old garage doors that have visible wear or even extensive damage must be replaced as soon as possible, as it compromises the safety of your house. New garage doors are sturdy, reliable, and come in various styles and different materials that are heavy and tough to break.

Better insulation

If you’re in the market to purchase a new garage door, we recommend updating the insulation. Insulated garage doors are ideal for homes with attached garages. They help reduce the amount of heat loss, increase the energy efficiency of your home, and contribute to a stronger and more durable garage door. You’ll notice the difference during harsh Calgary winters when the areas close to your garage door sit at a comfortable temperature.

Less noise

Old garage doors are quite noisy, rattling and clanging their way up and down. Additionally, some old doors let in more street noise. A new garage door replacement with new tracks and an updated garage door opener is quieter and smoother to operate. Some materials, like wood, can also reduce the amount of street noise coming into your home.
