The Benefits of a New Garage Door

May 23, 2014

Benefits of a New Garage Door from Mammoth DoorWhen did you last replace your garage door? When you first moved in? Never? If you’re like many homeowners, chances are you’ve still got the same garage door(s) that were on the house when you moved in, or it has been so long since you replaced it that it no longer functions smoothly and looks worn out. In addition to improving the overall appearance of your home, there are a variety of other benefits to getting a new garage door:


Improved Security

While appearance is certainly a big factor, the security of your home is even more important. Older garage doors are easier to break into; especially those made out of light wood (which can weaken further over time) and even metal ones without insulation. Most new garage door models now use advanced locking systems that are difficult to hack. Additionally, a well-fitted garage door makes it more challenging for intruders to wedge it open for entry.


Better Durability

Going along with security is greater durability. Garage doors installed in previous decades are notoriously poorly insulated (in fact, many lack it entirely). If your garage door is made out of wood, you may find that it is warped or damaged thanks to years of exposure to the elements. Modern doors come with layering options for better insulation, soundproofing, and endurance through all kinds of weather. And if your garage is attached to your house, a new garage door can actually help lower the heating and cooling costs of your home in general.


Added Personal Safety

The rise of automatic garage doors has greatly reduced personal safety hazards, but it is important to make sure it has up-to-date photoelectric detectors. This means that the garage door will automatically stop and open if anything is detected below it, preventing injury to you and anyone else walking into your garage.


Increased Home Value

As with most other home improvements, getting a new garage door can up your home’s value on the real estate market. Whether you’re looking to sell now or in the distant future, you’ll attract more buyers with a quality garage door that looks appealing and is low maintenance. With it, you’ll also be able to price your house at a higher rate.


More Use of Your Garage

Many garages become ovens in the summer and freezers in the winter, so using them as productive spaces is not always feasible. But installing a properly insulated and sealed door can create a far more comfortable environment in your garage that is suitable for a workroom, rec room, play area for your kids, etc. You can also store more belongings in there without worrying about them being affected by extreme or fluctuating temperatures.


Less Maintenance

Even if your old door functions well, how does it look? Is the paint peeling? Is there rust? Getting a door made out of steel, fiberglass, or even a quality, sealed wood means less maintenance on your part. Over time, your new garage door will pay for itself.

Steel vs. Wood: The Garage Door Showdown!

July 24, 2013

2013_July24Choosing a garage door is a big investment – and we hear often how it’s hard to choose between a steel door, and one that is wood. What are the benefits of each, and how can you decide which option is a better fit for you?

Steel doors are a popular choice since they are strong, secure, and a great value. Because they are more easily manufactured, they tend to be a less expensive option. They come in a wide range of styles and colors, so it’s usually easy to find a steel garage door option that fits your home’s design and your budget. The painted finish on a steel door tends to be very durable – some manufacturers even offer warranties on the paint!

Wooden garage doors have been popular for as long as garage doors have been around – and wood offers homeowners the most in terms of personalization and decorative options. Because wooden garage doors are custom manufactured for the most part, they tend to be pricier than steel alternatives, but they can be matched to your home’s wooden front door and trim, which is appealing to many homeowners.

So both options are great… but what are the downsides?

If your garage door gets a lot of use (or if you have children), steel doors can be susceptible to dents and scuffs. Most of these kinds of dings can be repaired by your local garage door company, and regular cleaning can keep scuffs, rust spots, and other issues under control.

Wood doors require more maintenance, as a stained and sealed finish is going to need to be touched up from time to time. Also, wood being what it is, wooden garage doors do expand and contract with changes in temperature, so make sure you have a garage door professional helping you with choosing and installing the door, as well as performing regular maintenance and check-ups.

There really is no “wrong choice” when it comes to selecting the material for your garage door – both options have their benefits and downsides, but in the end you will have a garage door that’s designed to look how you want it to look, and to function how you need it to function. It’s all in the aesthetics – if you really want a wooden garage door to fit with the design and other finishes of your home, go for it! Just be prepared to keep an eye on the finish, and give it some care every so often. If you like the affordability and color options that steel doors can offer, go that route! Just make sure that the door you end up with fits in with your home’s exterior, and you will be happy for years to come.
