Well built residential garage door or commercial garage door can last for many years but eventually, especially if they are made from untreated wood, they will start to fall apart. If you are not sure whether the time has come to replace your old door, take a look at the list below that we have compiled just for you. It is a list of signs that may well mean now is definitely a good time to think about installing a new door. It doesn’t matter whether you live right in the center of the city of Toronto or somewhere in the GTA like Richmond Hill, the signs will be the same, so this list is for all of you.
Signs that a New Garage Door Installation is Overdue
If you should happen to spot any of the signs in the following list, do not wait too long before contacting local suppliers to request quotes for a new garage door. Don’t forget to pay a visit to our Vaughan showroom either: you can see what types of doors are currently available and discuss prices with a member of our sales team.
- Constant Breakdowns – If you have an automatic garage door installed and it is constantly breaking down, this is a very obvious sign that, at the very least, the motor and the lifting mechanism need replacing. If the door and the motor are both quite old, it is well worth considering a completely new garage door installation. While you may be able to make do with just a new motor and lifting mechanism, you might as well replace everything at the same time and enjoy the aesthetic benefits that a brand new door has to offer too.
- Lack of Spare Parts – If your current door is so old that it is virtually impossible to find spares for it, a new garage door installation is well overdue. Wherever you are in Toronto, you can easily find several reputable firms to provide you with a quote for the supply and installation of a modern door and opening/closing system. The fact that you can probably get a better deal on a completely new system is worth bearing in mind too.
- Heat Loss in the Winter – If you use your garage as a workshop, for band practice, or you have converted it into a casual living space, a new garage door installation will ensure that heat loss is not a problem when the cold weather arrives. If you find your heating bills soaring in the winter months, get in touch with suppliers here in Vaughan, or wherever you happen to live, and request detailed quotations for a replacement door this year.
- Security Concerns – If your door is so old that it is easy to force open, now is definitely a good time to start looking for a replacement. While you may live in a relatively low crime area such as Richmond Hill, you do not want to make life easy for potential intruders. Call a few local firms and ask them to provide you with prices for the types of doors in which you are interested.
