Garage doors are durable and built to last, but they aren't built to last forever. So, how do you know when it is time to replace your old, existing garage door with a newer B&D Roll-A-Door® or B&D Panelift® doors?
If you are paying attention, there are often signs that it may be time to replace your current garage door with a newer make and model. The following are some of the most common signs that it may be time to consider upgrading your garage door to one of the newer roller doors from B&D.
When you open your garage door with an automatic opener, it should open smoothly and efficiently. If you notice that you are sitting there for a prolong period of time waiting for the garage door to open or close, it may be time to replace it with a newer, faster model.
Garage doors should open and close with minimal noise. In fact, people in your house should barely hear the garage door opening.
If you are reluctant to open your garage door or notice it is making so much noise that the neighbours hear it, it may be time to upgrade your garage door to a newer one. The newer B&D roller doors have special features that allow them to open and close without making any noise.
Garage doors are put through a lot. They must withstand harsh changes in temperature, high winds, rains and even floods, not to mention operating thousands of times. Over time, this could cause your garage door to appear old, ragged and worn down.
If you notice your garage door starts to appear worn and torn, it may be time to upgrade to a newer make and model. While you could paint it or purchase replacement parts, over time the garage door will just keep falling apart. It is better to purchase a new one.
A lot has changed over the years in terms of safety features for garage doors. There are now better, more secure locking mechanisms, such as the B&D Auto-Lock, as well as protective barriers that enhance the stability of the door. All Panelift® garage doors are fitted with safety features such as Pinchfree™ hinge designs and protected wheel tracks to prevent fingers being trapped.
Older garage doors may not have these safety features and it can be difficult to retrofit parts. Upgrading to a new garage door, like the Panelift® Icon™, will enhance the safety and security of your home.
You will need to perform routine maintenance on your garage door, but if you notice your garage door keeps breaking down and you need to call a repairman to fix it, it may be time to replace it. Replacing your garage door will allow you to save money, as you won't have to keep repairing it.
