How old is your garage door? If your door is more than 10 years old it is probably time to think about installing a new one. You might not understand why if the door is working pretty well. The main reason is because this will ensure your safety. Every 5-10 years the top garage door manufacturers make significant changes to the safety features on garage doors and if you haven’t installed a new door in that time you are really missing out on some features that can really keep you safe.
Another big reason to upgrade your door every decade is because most doors start to wear down at this point and you will start to see more and more problems with the door, resulting in a lot of money in garage door repairs. In most cases at this point it will actually cost you less to install a new door than to keep paying for repair after repair.
