WHEN IS IT TIME FOR A GARAGE DOOR REPLACEMENT?
Nothing lasts forever in a home, and garage doors are no different. An aging garage door will eventually fall victim to the law of gravity or look worse for wear thanks to Minnesota weather conditions. As your garage door nears the end of its life, which can range from 15-20 years, you may begin noticing more problems arise. Like anything, it may begin requiring more frequent maintenance and repair, and generally just run rougher than it has in the past.
Modern garage doors are stronger, better insulated, more secure and require less maintenance than garage doors that are more than 10 years old. A new garage door can enhance this access point to your home, while also increasing your home's value.
When shopping for a new garage door, the biggest decision you will encounter is what type of door is best suited for your home. Garage doors are available in a variety of materials such as wood, steel and aluminum.
