Why Have a New Garage Door?


New garage doorThe outside of any property is a major factor in curb appeal. With first impressions so important, garage doors play an important part in either detracting from or enhancing your home's exterior.

So why let your tired old garage door bring down the aesthetic appearance and potential selling value of your home? Why not consider having a new garage door supplied and fitted?

In this guide, we'll tell you why choosing the right garage door is so important and take you through the different options available to you.

Why have a new garage door?

Increased security

The biggest advantage to having a brand new garage door fitted is the additional security it brings. It sounds obvious to say but an old and worn garage door is far easier to break into than a brand new and securely fitted door. 

A more aesthetically pleasing property exterior

Choosing a brand new garage door not only gives you the chance to spruce up the look and feel of your home exterior but also allows you the option of changing the colour scheme too. There are a number of different garage door designs, styles, finishes and colours to choose from so finding the right one for your home is quick and easy. 

Improved practicality

Having a brand new garage door will also enable you to make it quicker and easier to enter and exit your garage. Plus, by adding an automation system to it you'll be able to open and close your new garage door without even having to leave your vehicle! Long gone will be the days of struggling to open your garage door in the wind and rain!

An increased selling value

Installing a brand new garage door at your property is also a very effective way of increasing your home's selling value. It sounds simple but a beautifully designed and finished garage door can make a big difference to the value of any property.

What different doors are available to you?

Wooden garage doors

If your home is traditional in appearance and has a natural character and raw beauty, then a wooden garage door could be the perfect addition. Able to lend itself perfectly to the overall look and feel of any property, a timber garage door is one of the most naturally beautiful door options around. Plus, with a variety of different finishes available, including oak, pine, mahogany, cedar and spruce, finding the right style and material for your home exterior will be easy.

Sectional garage doors

If you find that your garage gets too cold for you during those cold winter months or you're finding that draughts are getting into your home from the garage, a sectional garage door could well be the answer. Well-insulated as standard, sectional garage doors are incredibly draught-proof and available in a range of styles and finishes to perfectly match your property exterior's existing appearance.

Roller shutter garage doors

Tight on space with not much room to manoeuvre after parking your car in the garage? If so, a roller shutter garage door could be the ideal solution. Able to roll up into the ceiling when opened, roller shutter garage doors allow you to maximise the available space in your garage and give you that extra room to move!

Automated garage doors

Why not make it even quicker and easier for you to get into and out of your garage? An automated garage door will allow you to open and close your garage door with just a click of a button! Plus, you can do it from the comfort of your vehicle too, meaning no more struggling in the cold and rain to open the door!
