3 Signs It’s Time to Remodel Your Garage
A garage remodel is an investment. In some cases, you may be able to avoid a full remodel by updating garage doors or by repairing a few issues. There are three major signs you need to contact Hunter Door for a new garage door and a full renovation:
1. Your Garage Uses a Lot of Energy
Are your utility bills high or suddenly seeing an uptick? Take a look at your garage, especially if it’s attached to your home. Over time, cracks and gaps can develop, allowing the cold and even pests in. Poor insulation can also use up the available heat.
Garage doors, especially older models, are also often the culprit if your garage seems to be causing your bills to rise. Older models simply do not have the energy savings of newer solutions. Hunter Door can help you select and install energy-saving garage doors to help keep your heating costs in check. In many cases, all it takes is a new door to see measurable savings.
2. You’re Interested in Improving Your Home’s Value
If you’re thinking of selling or you just want to improve your home’s curb appeal, you can clean out your garage to create the illusion of more space. You can also totally make-over and reimagine your garage. An attractive garage door can make your garage look larger, for example. Since the door takes up such a large surface, it can also impact the entire look of the area, whether your garage is at the front of your home or not.
A new garage door can also improve your home’s value in other ways. Buyers would appreciate an energy-saving garage door and one with the latest convenience features. A garage door with a modern opener and safety features to prevent the door from closing unexpectedly are sure to be appreciated.
3. Your Garage Is Old and Shows Signs of Serious Wear
While you can do a great deal with repairs, there comes a time when the mechanisms of a door simply wear out. Your garage door may eventually have dents, dings and other serious issues which affect the overall look and performance, too. There is a point where replacing it will offer more value than trying to salvage it.
If you’re having trouble deciding whether repairs or replacements are best, contact Hunter Door. Our friendly and honest professionals can review your options so you can make the best choice for your home.
Is It Time to Remodel Your Garage?
If you’re ready to redo your garage, it’s important to work with trained professionals. Each year, homeowners are injured by broken garage doors and by trying to fix doors themselves. Garage doors are heavy, and professionals are trained in the handling of the doors and their electrical and mechanical components. Trying to handle the installation yourself can also invalidate your warranty.
If you need new garage doors because your current ones are at the end of their life, request an estimate today. Our team can ensure your door is installed correctly for a long lifecycle. Our wide selection of carriage house doors, modern styles, aluminum options and more is sure to get you the look you want.
