What You Didn’t Know About Today’s Garage Doors

We know that; we talk to homeowners in San Diego all the time and they tell us how important their garages are to them. Any realtor would tell you that a good, spacious and clean garage with a properly functioning garage door adds at least 4 percent to the value of your house.

But… garage doors?

Here’s what you didn’t know about today’s garage doors….

Fact #1

Did you know that 70% of homeowners in America use their garage door as their primary entry point for their home? Yes, it is the garage door, not the front door that is the main access point for many homeowners. Why?

Garage doors occupy 6X times the amount of space as your front door entrance. So you can see why people prefer to use them as a primary access point to the house. When you’re bringing furniture in the house or are back from a shopping expedition, you’d want to enter the house through the garage door, not the front door.

Fact #2

Garage door openers of today are more advanced than they’d ever been. In fact, if you’ve been using the same garage door opener for more than 20 years you’d be shocked at what the modern-day garage door fitted with an advanced garage door opener can do.

To begin with, heard of the Internet of things? Well, it’s no longer just a futuristic concept; it’s for real. Every garage door opener is now connected to the internet and can be controlled remotely. These are incredibly smart and sophisticated devices that are completely automated and can be operated remotely from your smartphone.

Fact #3

Any realtor in San Diego would tell you that a high-quality garage door could add 4 percent to the value of your house. What does this mean for you? When you consider that the median home price in San Diego County was $540,000 in December 2017, a high-quality garage door adds $21,600 to your home’s value. Not bad, huh?

Fact #4

Garage door repair can be extremely dangerous and must be performed by trained technicians. Never go the DIY route when it comes to installing or repairing garage doors. Garage doors have extremely high spring tension. A mistake could prove to be deadly or cause a serious neck or head injury; which why they should only be handled by experienced garage door technicians in San Diego.
