Beautiful homes. They are everywhere. They are depicted with flawless facades, pristine porches and white picket fences on popular television channels, such as HGTV and the DIY Network. While a garage door may not be the stuff of new home fairytales, it is likely the first thing you will see, so why not invest in a new garage door?
A new door will add style, curb appeal, and value to your home. In fact, according to this year’s Cost vs. Value report, replacing your outdated garage door can reap you a 76.9 percent return on investment. If ENERGY STAR rated, you may also be eligible to receive a tax credit equal to 10 percent of the product cost up to $500; not including installation.
Choosing a New Garage Door
Design – With so many aesthetic designs to choose from (e.g., classic, modern, and rustic), you are bound to find a new garage door that compliments both your home and neighborhood architecture, as well as your personal style. In terms of materials, you can choose between wood, steel and composite.
Functionality – When choosing a new garage door, it is important to look beyond practicality, curb appeal and increased property values to technologically advanced features. These features allow you to monitor the status of your door from virtually anywhere in the world thus providing increased peace of mind.
Insulated or non? – This is something you should really consider if your garage is attached. An insulated garage door can help you save on energy costs if you have a room directly adjacent to the garage or you use the space it provides for anything other than protecting your vehicle.
Don’t worry, you don’t have to perform new garage door installation, nor should you. Garage doors are both extremely large and heavy! Oftentimes, this causes them to be quite difficult, not to mention dangerous to maneuver. In order to ensure they are properly and safely installed, always contact a local, professional garage door repair company such as Phoenician Garage Door & Repair at (602) 304-1313. We repair, service, and install all makes and models.
