Everyday garage doors are changing. You can’t say that all they do is open and close anymore. So, let’s talk about what more they can do for you as newer models appear with new features!
1. Give pesky power outages a run for their money
Can you open your garage door if the power is out? If your garage door is a newer model that is equipped with backup batteries, you can! You won’t have life stop from a power outage, why should your garage door stop?
2. Open a Garage door with nothing but the tip of a finger
We have all seen how advanced technology has become. Now keypads are used on your garage door that use fingerprint recognition. You won’t have to remember any codes or passwords, just use your finger and scan. Super easy and secure!
Raises your value of your home
Just fixing your garage door, replacing it or adding one to a home adds value, 1%-4% according to a study by real estate agents. You can upgrade anything in your home and gain value. No matter what the size.
4. Let your Garage Door look like your personality
Have a unique garage door that fits you. Don’t settle for something that doesn’t suit you. Maybe a carriage house garage door, or an overhead garage door is your thing? With so many choices, there is bound to be a fit for your personality!
Take your front door’s job
There have been several surveys done that show over 70% of homeowners now use their garage door as a main entryway on a daily basis, instead of their front door. This is for convenience, as it is easy to just go inside after parking your vehicle in or just by pushing a button! Some are even calling garage doors the replacement of front doors!
Take on strong winds with your garage door.
When a storm blows through, it can often leave you with little to nothing afterwards if you are not prepared.
