5 Reasons to Install a Garage Door Opener09/11/2016 Back To Blog
If you’re growing tired of having to lift or drag your garage door open every day, it's never been more affordable to convert your manual into an automatic. Here are the best 5 reason to make the switch:
With automatic doors come more options for safety measures. For example, many modern garage doors are now fitted with automatic sensors and breaks that will stop them crushing down on people and objects. Whereas manual designs have no such sensors, as they have no way of being automatically or electrically stopped.
Less time in the rain
Another quite obvious benefit is that automatic doors clearly make life more pleasurable and easy on a daily basis. But for those that live in areas with varying weather, this benefit will be even more appreciated. Being able to keep yourself and your garage door remote inside the car when driving in, will mean you keep warm and dry throughout the seasons.
Cheaper than you think
Automatic garage doors are now very common and increasingly so. It might cost a lot less than you think to get your hands on one. Why stick with something old and irritating, when you can afford an upgrade that will improve your daily life.
Improve the aesthetic and value of your home
You might not be thinking about the possibility of selling your house, but the garage for many people is one of the first elements of your home that people draw their first impressions from. Whether they are guests, neighbors, family or potential buyers, automatic doors are a very impressive and many people, especially buyers, will value them highly.
Less manual labor
Let’s face it, garage doors get messy very quickly. Having a manual one means more time rubbing up against dirty metal, which means much higher risks of damaging or soiling your suit, work uniform, favorite clothes and other essentials. Having an automatic garage door installed takes away all that grief and sheer frustration.
