Should I Automate or Replace My Garage Door?

There’s no question about it: an automated garage door is much more desirable than one you have to physically open and close. Garage door improvement might not be high on homeowners’ lists until the absence of an automated door becomes a real inconvenience.

If you’re frustrated with your garage door, you have two choices: install a garage door opener, or replace the garage door altogether with a new, automated one. Either way, you’ll be improving your garage door and adding value to your home.

Is Your Old Garage Door Too Old?

If your garage door isn’t automated, it’s probably an older model. Consider replacing it with a Garagesleek and stylish new overhead door that opens and closes at the push of a button.

Today’s garage doors are constructed with aluminum, steel and other recyclable materials. They are insulated with R8, R14, and R18 insulation to keep out summer heat and winter cold. New overhead doors come in different styles with a variety of colors and stains. Windows, if desired, can be customized for size, shape, pattern, frosting, tint, with double or single pane options.

Because modern (high-quality) garage doors are made with steel or other durable materials, upkeep is minimal. Many manufacturers offer a lifetime warranty for the doors and 5, 7 or 10 years for parts.

Automated opening and close functions come with an assortment of standard and optional features:

  • Smart remote controls that let you turn on the lights in your home right from the car
  • Security codes that make sure only approved people have access to your garage
  • Electronic programming that ensures the door is closed by a certain time each day
  • Whole-garage lighting
  • Control via smartphone, tablet or computer
  • Safety features that sense an obstruction and interrupt closing
