It’s a new year, which means that it’s the perfect time to upgrade your garage.

Whether you want to make your garage more efficient, enhance your home’s curb appeal or make your garage more secure, you’ll be glad to know that there are many ways you can upgrade your garage. Whatever your goal may be, now that 2017 is finally here, it’s the perfect time to upgrade your garage. The following is a list of some of the best ways to upgrade your garage door and/or garage door opener in 2017:

#1. Insulate your garage door.

Are you looking to save more energy in your home? If so, insulating your garage and garage door is a great option. This will help to keep the temperature in your home more stable, and if your garage door is also your home gym or work area, you’ll be a lot more comfortable in the winter with a little insulation. As an added bonus, insulation can also help to prevent your car from getting too cold, making it a lot more comfortable to get to work and school on cold mornings.

#2. Paint your garage door.

Is your garage door looking a little worse for the wear? Your garage door actually plays a huge role in the aesthetics of your home, and if it’s looking worn out or has peeling paint, it can hurt the appearance of your entire house. Luckily, a simple, fresh coat of paint can do wonders when it comes to the appearance of your garage door and your home. You can even get creative by painting patterns on your garage door with stencils.

#3. Install a keypad for your garage door opener.

Garage door keypads are nothing new, but they are wonderful options for many reasons. If you have a keypad, you always have a way to get into your garage and home, even if you don’t have your garage door opener on you. If you have kids who are home by themselves after school, a keypad always gives them an easy way in, and eliminates the need for them to keep their spare keys on them at all times.

#4. Amp up your garage door’s security.

Your garage is where you park your car, store your holiday decorations and keep your tools, but it’s also one of the most vulnerable entrances into your home, especially if your garage door or garage door opener is outdated. The good news is that technology has come a long way, and new garage doors and openers are much more secure than they used to be. New technology includes timers that will close your garage door after a pre-scheduled amount of time, motion detectors and electrical monitoring against forced openings, just to name a few.

#5. Replace your garage door with a new one.

New garage door installation in your Windsor home is the ultimate upgrade, and it’s beneficial in many different ways. Newer garage doors are much more advanced than their older counterparts, and if you choose the right option, you can take advantage of remote control using your smartphone, modern styles, improved insulation values and so much more! Some new garages even come with lifes pans of 20+ years, thanks to hardware made of more robust steel and improved product assembly.
