At what point should you replace your garage door?
For some customers, replacement is necessary due to updated federal law requiring certain safety mechanisms in all garage openers. The older a garage door system is, the more likely it is lacking in safety features. Some of the oldest systems have remotes the size of shoe boxes!
Here are a few more factors to consider when replacing a garage door opener:
An older opener can be loud and annoying to neighbors and your own peace of mind.
Older doors were opened by a single, specified code, which made them easy to crack. Newer doors change the code with every use.
Older doors lack a mounted keypad that lets you in even when you don’t have your keys handy.
A battery backup system that you can get with new doors allows you to open them even when the power is out.
