If you are interested in making upgrades to your garage door, you might want to consider upgrades that could potentially cause an increase in value. There are certain things that might add value to this part of your property, for instance, you could focus on adding curb appeal by ensuring the door is aesthetically pleasing. Just like cabinets can add appeal to a kitchen and even value, a garage door can add value to a home.

 

Energy Efficiency to Increase Value

Focus on energy efficiency. Newer garage doors tend to be energy efficient. If you are concerned with energy efficiency regarding your door, consider insulation and the difference it could make. The ability to keep colder temperatures and hot temperatures outside of the garage is important. When the home is able to stay at a temperature that is comfortable, it can use less energy and therefore lead to a lower electric bill. When you have an attached garage, think about energy efficiency and insulation as an upgrade to increase value. Weatherstripping is important as well when it comes to energy efficiency and keeping unwanted elements out of the garage, which can in turn add value.

 

Insulation Can Keep Noise Away, and Increase Value

Insulation is also a way of keeping noise away. Reducing noise coming in can make the garage a more enjoyable spot overall, whether it is a place you use for packing away items or even making repairs to vehicles and bikes. Reducing outside noise is a bonus, and can certainly be an addition to value.

 

Garage Doors Can Add to Curb Appeal

Since garage doors are such a large part of the exterior of a home, they can potentially add to curb appeal. Customizations can certainly play a role in adding to curb appeal. What should you focus on?

 

Materials Used Can Add to Value

Consider the material for your garage door. Whether your garage door is made of steel, wood, fiberglass or faux wood, you can add to it to increase value.

Do you know about your garage door springs? Most people know that they are there; doing the heavy lifting and lowering of your home or business garage door, but do you know which system you have or what your springs really do? Here at Marietta Garage Door Repair we are sometimes asked about these powerful metal coils that do so much work for us. If you ask most people on the street what makes their garage door move up and down, they will tell you that it’s their garage door opener.

Why do I need to know this?

At this point you may be wondering if knowing about garage door springs has any significance. Can’t you just fix them yourself if they break? Can’t you just hire a repairman to service them and be done with it? No on the first question and maybe on the second; it all depends on your time allotment and budget. A much smarter way is to know at least the basics about your springs so that you understand what is really going on each time your open or close your Marietta, GA garage door.

 

Torsion springs

Your garage door’s torsion springs are sometimes called by other names. Sometimes, they are referred to as spring systems as opposed to pulley systems which are often referred to as extension springs. Think of these terms along the lines of tissue and Kleenex. These are words that mean the very same thing even though one is a noun and one is a brand. They are often used interchangeably and people generally know what you are talking about. If you have a newer opener system, it is probably of the torsion spring variety. Is there a way to tell which one you have? Yes, and it’s easy, too. If you have torsion springs at your home, they will be located over the top of your garage door. You’ll see a torsion bar attached at the top of your garage door, on the inside. The actual torsion springs themselves are mounted on this bar. It has a drum at each end with cables that attach it to the bottom bracket at each end of your garage door. Every time your garage door operates up and down, these same cables move up the length of the garage door and around the drums.  Torsion spring systems like these come in different sizes which correspond to the weight and dimensions of your garage door.
