When Is It Time for a Garage Door Replacement?
There are a number of reasons why homeowners and businesses choose to replace their garage doors.
In a residential setting, homeowners want a garage door that is both attractive and functional, but over the years, an older garage door will show more and more wear and tear. Fading paint, dents and other marks show the door’s age. The different mechanisms may also break down, reducing the garage door’s efficiency and safety.
By installing a new garage door, homeowners can enjoy increased curb appeal, convenience and security for their home. Compared to other home renovation projects, garage door replacements have amazing returns on investment. And, with a huge variety of different styles, colors and features available, it’s easy to choose the perfect garage door for your home.
For a business, looks may not be as important for a garage door. A door that provides exceptional functionality and efficiency for daily operations will usually be considered more important because garage doors are typically not client or customer facing. If you’re searching for a commercial garage door, you will also have a wide variety of options available.
If you’re unsure about when you should replace your garage door, just remember that the time to do it may not be the same for everyone. There are a number of factors that may push you to make the decision to replace your garage door.
Some people choose to replace the garage door for cosmetic reasons. The garage door may not fit the overall style of the building or have cosmetic damage, like dents or faded paint. If you’re planning on selling your home or are just tired of the outdated look, this may be your reason for choosing a replacement.
Damage to the mechanisms of the door and malfunctioning are more serious reasons to replace the door. If the door isn’t working as efficiently as it should, you may choose to replace the entire system instead of paying for the repair, depending on its severity and the repair cost.
Replacing Your Garage Door Sensor
The photo eye sensor is an important part of the garage door system. The sensor is a safety feature that prevents the door from fully closing if there is something or someone blocking the path. If this part isn’t working properly, it will appear that the entire system isn’t working right.
Replacing the sensor is a good alternative to replacing the entire door if it’s the main cause of the door malfunctioning. Replacing this one smaller part can save you a lot of time and money compared to replacing the whole door.
If the garage door does not stay closed, the sensor may be the cause of the problem. If cleaning the sensor, clearing anything that could be blocking the path and checking the wiring doesn’t fix the issue, it might be time to replace the sensor.
