With winter fast approaching, it seems like all those repairs around the house you’ve been putting off all summer have suddenly come rushing back, clamoring for attention. While it might be a challenge juggling so much at once, you definitely can’t afford to delay your garage door repair for another minute.
While a good looking garage door can significantly add to your home’s curbside value, there are more acute reasons why garage door repair should be a top priority. Read on to see just how important a properly-working garage door is.
Nearly 10 percent of all burglaries take place through the garage, but if a garage door is not working properly – especially if it’s stuck in an open position – that number increases exponentially. Not only do thieves have easy access to the goldmine of stuff you keep in your garage (i.e. cars, bikes, power tools, and lawn equipment) but an open garage also makes it one step easier for would-be burglars to enter your home. Of course, the reverse is also true – a well-secured garage door provides an added layer of security, keeping your family, and your valuables, safe and sound.
Winter is Coming
Sure, autumn and winter have their charms – holiday music, pumpkin spice lattes (admit it, they’re a guilty pleasure), and all those pretty twinkling lights. But when you’re heading off to work in the morning, cold rain or snow are definitely not on the “charming” list. Whether you want to protect your car from the elements (for example, in snowy climates, garage-kept cars have a higher resale value) or just keep yourself warm, you need a functioning garage door to go in or out.
You probably wouldn’t think to connect garage door repair with your power bill, but a well-insulated garage can save you a bundle on heating costs this winter.
On the other hand, a perpetually-open garage door can let out tons of precious heat, and cold air entering the garage has a direct path into your home.
Your garage door repair will let you seal it off at the source, and save big.
Your garage can provide insulation not just against the cold, but against noise, as well. Making sure that you’re easily able to close your garage door means that you’re also able to shut out traffic noise and other unwanted commotion from outside. Rest easy (and quietly) with a tightly closed garage door.
If your garage door isn’t working properly, that means that you’re consistently either parking outside, or struggling to open and shut your garage. Why deal with either? With a functional garage door, you can shorten your trips unloading groceries from the car, shelter yourself from the rain, and enjoy a smoother entry and exit every time.
Use Your Space
The garage might be one of the most underrated spaces in the house – but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Whether you’re thinking about turning your garage into a home gym, workshop, office space, or clubhouse, one thing is for certain – you’re going to want a fully functioning garage door. The time and money spent on a garage door repair are minor compared to the benefit of adding a whole new room to your home!
