Advantages of Changing Your Garage Door System

If you want to increase the kerb appeal and property value of your home, changing your garage door system is a sure fire way of doing so. Your garage is likely to be one of the first features a potential buyer of your home will notice, and a more modernised system is much more appealing than an outdated system. There are many other reasons why you should update your garage door, thanks to advances in the industry that have improved the functionality of garage door systems, which we’ll be looking at here.

Less maintenance needed

A new system will be much less prone to accidents and breakages than an older system as stronger, more resilient materials are now used that have a longer life expectancy than the materials used in older doors. This means you don’t have to worry about needing to call out a professional to repair or maintain your garage door for the foreseeable future. Not only will this save you money, it will save you a lot of time and hassle.

Increased home safety

There has been a noted flaw on garage door openers manufactured before 1993: the signal of the transmitter isn’t equipped with a rolling code system, which makes it easy for thieves to pick up, leaving your home vulnerable to break-ins. Updating your system will remove this issue and make your home safer and more secure from potential intrusions.

Better insulation

Advances in the industry have meant that modern door systems are much better insulated and more weathertight than older systems, which means that updating your current system will help keep your garage and your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer, which in turn can save you money on your energy bills.

Less chance of accidents

Old garage door systems don’t have the advanced safety precautions on them that today’s door systems do, such as hold to run closing and safety edges. These are very important safety features in modern systems that protect your car, family and pets from becoming injured by the door, so modernising your door system will reduce the risk of accidents in your home.

Quieter system

Modern systems run very quietly, with next to no noise. This reduced noise pollution is more convenient for those who work unsociable hours and don’t want to disturb the neighbours, or those who simply want a quieter life.
