Time For a New Garage Door? 5 Tell-Tale Signs

A good garage door can last a very long time, but at some point, even the most well-maintained garage door would benefit from replacement. If your garage door is nearing the end of its service life, it’s important to replace your garage door with a quality unit from a good garage door installer. In this article, we’ll go over five signs that it’s time to reach out to a reputable garage door company for a new door.

1. You Want to Sell Your Home

It’s widely documented in the real estate industry that installing a new garage door is one of the highest ROI home improvements. Some sources estimate that the ROI of a new garage door is 97.5%!

And, because a new garage door can boost your home’s curb appeal, replacing your garage door can help your home sell faster, can make your house more appealing to home buyers, and can make your home sale overall more successful.

If you want to sell your home sometime soon, replacing your garage door is an excellent preliminary step to take – especially if your home’s current garage door is nothing that would impress buyers.

2. Your Garage Door Is 3 Decades Old or Older

Garage doors last for about 30 years. Once they reach this age, cosmetic problems and general wear and tear compel most homeowners to replace them. Maintaining your garage door can prolong its service life, but eventually, it will need to be replaced. Once it’s about 30 years old, it may be time for a new door.

3. Your Garage Door Needs a Lot of Repairs

Are you constantly repairing your garage door? If so, it may be time for a new one. Speak with your garage door repair person to get a professional opinion. Your garage door repair person can tell you whether you’re dumping money into a lost cause.

4. You Don’t Like Your Garage Door’s Style

Are you tired of the way your garage door looks? Garage door styles have changed a lot in the last several decades, and since garage door installation is a relatively affordable home improvement, there’s little reason not to buy a new door. Some of the most popular garage door styles at Overhead Door Company include:

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
