If you’ve been considering replacing or fixing your garage door, hold on tight because your time is just around the corner.
After the cold and messy days of winter, the best time to replace your garage door is spring! The days of spring are longer and warmer and it’s a time known for renewal and cleaning. You’ll want to examine your system to determine what needs fixed so you can enjoy your garage through the rest of the year.
The #1 reason spring is the best time of year to replace your garage door is because the industry is waiting for you. Most companies try to start their year as early as possible, meaning once the snow melts, they’re ready to negotiate with you and make a sale. Early spring is also when you’ll find the most attractive promotions on products and installations. So if you’re in the market for a new garage door, make sure you’re taking advantage of the offers as soon as they become available.
Even if replacing your garage door isn’t necessary, a proper tune-up probably is. After a severe winter, it’s common for a spring to lose its resiliency or even break into two pieces. And if your spring is more than a few years old, it might be time to consider a spring system replacement anyway. This is a great time to call in a professional who can give you a full report on your garage door functionality and spring system.
If you’re still not convinced on a replacement or tune-up this spring, here’s one more incentive: it will provide economic value. If your garage door is old or not working properly, you’re exposing your home in more ways than one. The longer you let your outdated garage door go, the more vulnerable you become to possible break-ins, due to easy accessibility, and higher energy bills. With better insulated doors, you can save on energy costs, add overall value, and increase protection. If that’s not enough for you to at least examine your garage door, what is?
