Summer is the Best Time to Replace Your Garage Door
No matter what time of year it is, there is never a bad time to replace your garage door. However, summer may be the best time of year for you to replace your garage door for a plethora of reasons.
Summer Activities: Families often enjoy getting to spend as much time outside as possible during the beautiful summer months. Whether it be a family pickup game in the driveway, hanging out in the garage during a summer rainstorm, or parking the families bikes, outdoor toys, equipment, etc. you will want to make sure you have a garage that is safe, secure and functional. Don't let a broken garage door stop you from accessing it for all of your summer activities.
Secure your home & belongings: Your garage is often home to not only your car, but bicycles, gardening tools, lawn mower, and anything else you may not want to store in your home. A new garage door can ensure that these important items remain safe and secure and prevent others from accessing your home through your attached garage.
Price: You may be able to get a better price if you choose to replace your garage door during the summer as many companies often run summer sales. This means that you may be able to get a top of the line door for a fraction of the price, rather than a cheaper door that may not provide the full functionality and options that you wish.
Safety: Your outdated or damaged garage door may not be just an eyesore. It may also be a potential danger to you and your family. Summer is a time when children are home from school and may be left to their own devices throughout the day. A secure garage door and garage door opener can provide children with a code to easily access your home, rather than carrying a key that can easily be lost. Replacing that old garage door can also prevent any possible injuries that could occur due to a damaged garage door.
Harsh Seasons: Winter and Spring can also wreak havoc on your garage door. Wisconsin winters come with damaging winds, heavy snow, and freezing rain. Spring comes with heavy rains and high humidity. All of these elements can cause excessive damage to an older garage door. On average, garage doors last 5 to 6 years; with past inclement weather you may want to assess the state of your garage door and upgrade to a newer model.
Energy Costs: A new garage door can also save you money on your electric bill. A new garage door may have better insulation and will therefore keep your house cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. At Overhead Door Company of Metro Milwaukee™ we offer an entire line of garage doors with Thermacore® Insulation.
