The Benefits of Investing in Quality Garage Doors and Openers

It seems like almost everyone is looking for ways to cut costs and make ends meet. Sometimes, this means settling for products with a lower price tag and quality that actually cost more in the long run. For this reason, we recommend investing in high-quality garage doors and openers.

Improved curb appeal

Garage doors command attention as the biggest feature on any home’s exterior, so they should match the style and look of the rest of the building. The sheer size of the door makes it a focal point, so it has to look great to enhance a property’s overall curb appeal and make a great impression. In contrast, a cheap door has the opposite effect and gets attention for all the wrong reasons.

Increased home value

An attractive, well-maintained garage door helps a property stand out. This increases its worth. When you want top dollar for the sale of your home, a secure, top-of-the-line garage door and opener will always be more appealing to potential buyers. Pro-tip: If you have maintenance records, include these with the sale of your home, especially if you’ve worked with reputable companies. That way, potential buyers can trust that you have cared for your garage door properly.

Lower cost of ownership

Most homeowners don’t give their garage doors much thought until there’s a problem. Unfortunately, installing a low-quality door and opener might mean more frequent issues and, consequently, more service calls/repairs. Investing in quality garage doors and openers means fewer problems and less costly bills for parts and repairs.

A high-quality garage door will also last much longer than a less well-made alternative. The increased lifespan means a lower overall cost of ownership and a better return on investment, especially if you are selling your home in the future.

More security and safety

Even when you only use the garage for storage, it’s still a primary entry point. Burglars can easily thwart inexpensive garage doors in a matter of minutes. Modern garage doors use advanced technology to make them safer to use and stop unauthorized entry. Features like smart locking systems and sensors that automatically stop the door from lowering on vehicles or people go a long way towards protecting your family and your home.

Less maintenance

How many times a day does the garage door open and close? How often is it hit by balls, bikes, or other projectiles? Between the wear and tear of everyday life and constant exposure to the hot Texas sun, garage doors need to withstand a lot. Lower-quality doors aren’t always up to the task.

Homeowners who settle for less than top-notch garage doors often have to spend more time (and money) on maintenance. From fixing malfunctions in the garage door opener or track mechanisms to painting and repairing damaged surfaces, low-cost products typically need more attention to remain functional.

Enhanced energy efficiency

Attached garages, in particular, can have a big impact on a home’s energy efficiency. Cheaper garage doors don’t stop heat loss in the winter or heat gain in the summer, which affects the temperature inside the home and strains both heating and cooling systems. Investing in quality doors helps keep energy bills in check by maintaining a more consistent and comfortable indoor environment.
