Whether you have an attached or detached garage, if you’re like many homeowners, the garage door is probably a structure that you don’t think about too much. However, deciding to get an insulated garage door is a smart move that can offer a number of benefits to you and your home. This project is a worthwhile investment for your home.
Reduced Energy Costs
Some people are hesitant to upgrade to an insulated garage door because they are concerned about the cost of doing so. This renovation, though, can save you money in the long term. If you have a heating or cooling system in the garage, the insulated door can lower the amount of energy needed, thereby reducing your bills. You can also ask about the most energy-efficient models.
An insulated door can also save you money in terms of repairs and replacements as well. In short, an insulated garage door is likely to last longer than a non-insulated model. For example, a sturdy insulated garage door can hold up better in harsh weather conditions. Instead of having to worry about a constant need for repairs, you can simply trust your new door. You can speak with one of our representatives for an estimate on how to expect your new insulated door to last.
Even if you don’t have a heating or cooling system in the garage, an insulated door can provide a more comfortable environment throughout the seasons. For example, if you need to do work in the garage in the winter, you might currently find yourself bundling up in layer upon layer. An insulated garage door can keep more heat in, which allows you to be more comfortable in the space.
If the temperature is at a suitable and comfortable level for at least the majority of the year, you may be able to repurpose the garage into an additional area for living space. You might want to turn the garage into a game room, or you may want to transmute the area into a crafting space or a home office. Another option is to make the garage into a den or family. Whether you renovate for work or play, an insulated door can allow you to enjoy the new space, regardless of what the temperature is outside. Keep in mind that there are typically local requirements and restrictions for major renovations, such as turning a garage into a bedroom or an apartment, so be sure to conduct research on such plans.
An insulated garage door can also aid in protecting valuable items. You might keep expensive tools in the garage, or you may use the space as storage for your favorite holiday decorations or seasonal home decor. Getting an insulated door can offer an additional layer of protection against burglaries. You can speak with one of our technicians to learn about other ways to improve the security of your garage.
Increased Home Security
In addition to protecting your valuables, the insulated door can offer greater protection to your home, particularly if your house has an attached garage. Many homeowners worry about someone breaking into the garage and then having more immediate access to their houses. An insulated door can help to reduce some of these worries. The insulated door provides another barrier of protection against the outside world.
Improved Aesthetics and Home Value
Getting an insulated garage door can also help your home to look more beautiful. This move can be a step in the direction of creating the home that you’ve always dreamed of. The insulated door can also increase the curb appeal of your house. Curb appeal plays a role in increasing home value and in generating quicker and more lucrative sales. If you’re thinking of putting the house on the real estate market in the near or distant future, a new, insulated garage door can help you to make a sale.
