There are several benefits to replacing an old garage door including improved security, energy efficiency, and curb appeal. In this blog post, we will walk you through, in more detail, some of the benefits of replacing your old garage door. So if you are ready to start shopping for a new garage door, strap in and keep reading!


1. A New Garage Door Can Increase Your Home's Curb Appeal

If you are looking for a quick and easy way to increase your home's curb appeal, consider installing a new garage door. A garage door is one of the first things people see when they pull up to a house, so it is important to choose one that compliments the rest of your home's exterior. There are many different styles and materials to choose from, so you are sure to find one that fits your budget and taste. In addition to increasing your home's curb appeal, a new garage door can also improve its energy efficiency, which we will cover in more detail in the next section. Suffice to say, today’s garage doors are designed with insulation and weather stripping to help keep heat in and cold out, saving you money on your energy bills. So if you are looking for a simple way to give your home a facelift, consider installing a new garage door.


2. It Can Help to Insulate Your Home Better, Leading to Lower Energy Bills

Many people do not realize that their garage doors can have a big impact on the energy efficiency of their homes. While windows and doors get all of the attention, an uninsulated garage door can account for a significant amount of heat loss in the winter as well. If you live in a cold climate, this can lead to higher energy bills in the winter as your heater works overtime to keep your home warm. Adding insulation to your garage door is a simple and effective way to reduce heat loss and lower your energy bills. Newer garage doors will provide a better seal to your garage to help keep cold air out and warm air in during the winter, resulting in lower energy bills for you.


3. A New Garage Door Can be More Secure than an Old One, Deterring Burglars

When it comes to home security, garage doors are often overlooked. However, a garage door is one of the first things that a burglar will check when looking for a way into your home. If your garage door is old or in disrepair, it may be time to invest in a new one. Newer garage doors are made with security in mind, with features like heavier-duty locks and reinforced construction. In addition, many garage door companies offer additional security features as options, such as alarms and motion-activated lighting. By upgrading to a new garage door, you can help deter burglars and keep your home safe.


4. A New Garage Door Can Simply be More Convenient to Use, with Newer Features Like Automatic Openers

Garage doors have come a long way in recent years, and upgrading to a new garage door can be a simple way to make life a lot more convenient. Newer garage doors often come with automatic openers, which can be a real timesaver when you are coming home with your hands full. In addition, many garage door openers now come with a variety of helpful features, such as the ability to set a schedule or timer, remotely open or close the door, and even receive alerts if the door is left open. If you are looking for a more convenient garage door solution, upgrading to a newer model with an automatic opener is the way to go.


5. Finally, a New Garage Door Can be a Selling Point if You Ever Decide to Put Your House on the Market

A garage door is not something most people think about when it comes to their home’s resale value. However, it is one of the first things a potential buyer will see when they pull up to your house. If your garage door is old and worn, it can give the impression that your home is not well-maintained. In addition, a new garage door can be a selling point, showing that you have made recent improvements to the property. If you are thinking of putting your house on the market, consider investing in a new garage door. It may not seem like a big change, but it could make a big difference in how quickly you find a buyer and on the resale value of your home.

What our customers are saying...

Lonnie is a subject matter expert concerning all things garage doors! He’s absolutely the best garage door repairman I’ve used to date. A clear, concise, transparent business model with the warranty to back his work. I highly recommend this local, small business veteran for all future garage door installations and repair.

~ Seth Thomas

Lonny came out in the evening to look at my old garage door that was janky at best. He gave me options of what he could do to make it better, including installing safety cables that were missing. In the end, I decided a replacement was my best choice. He installed it on a Saturday and did a fantastic job. He kept me updated throughout the day as the project went on. I don’t write reviews very often but wanted to tell others how impressed I was. The pricing was very fair I am very happy with the product.

In these troubling times of deceitful business practices and double talk, it is a Blessing to know that honest (Godly) people still exist. To state that Love Garage Doors does excellent work is not enough. If you choose to ask Lonnie "silly" questions, he will patiently take time to smile and give you answers and good ideas. His prices are competitive and his work is steady and true. He sets the bar high for others who compete!

~ Peggy Miles

Totally professional, terrific pricing and great expertise. No hidden charges. I had a complete garage door motor replaced, installation of a keypad and new clickers and new wall button. Lonnie explained every part of the process beforehand and when he left after only a couple of short hours - everything worked perfectly. I'm thrilled. Great company. Thanks again. You guys rock.

What People Say About Us - Reviews

Our spring broke on our garage door and we were able to get it fixed quickly and professionally on a Saturday! We recommend Love Garage Doors!
I first called Lonnie to install 4 large overhead doors on our new shop. He was always on time, hard working and prices very fair. He take his trade serious and knows all for garage doors. This last week after a late dinner out, the 18x7 on the house broke a torsion spring. Call Lonnie and he came over, went to the store for new springs and did it in short order. Again a very fair price and a happy customer.

Lonnie did such a great job repairing our garage door. You could tell he knew what he was doing and was going to do the job right. Our garage door is original to our 1950s home and he had no problem fixing it right up! His prices were very reasonable and he’s a very nice guy. Highly recommend.

Woke up early to a broken garage door spring, unable to get the cars out of the garage. I called and was able to schedule a repair within a few hours even though it was before 6 AM. Direct price quote over the phone, too. Great customer service. Lonnie is very knowledgeable in his craft and answered any questions I had. Definitely recommend Love Garage Doors.

We needed a repair done on our garage door and called Lonnie at Love Garage Doors. He came to our home at the scheduled time and did the repair. Lonnie was prompt, polite and competent. We will contact him if we are ever in need of another repair and we would recommend him to anyone.

GREAT service. Came same day, no questions asked. Worked on my door to solve the problem, rather than just offering a “new door” to fix the issue. I greatly appreciated the honest suggestions, feedback, and courteous service. I would not hesitate to call Love’s again in the future. If I have a door issue, you can bet they’ll be my first call.
