All home and business owners have many things to consider when they start shopping for their next garage door. Garage doors can greatly improve your property’s curb appeal. In addition, they can add additional functionality to your property and they can make your property more accessible. Considering sliding garage doors for your home? We can help.
When you start shopping for a new garage door, we suggest you seriously consider installing a sliding garage door. Although these doors aren’t the least expensive option out there, they offer a number of distinct benefits.
A sliding garage door will always open to their full height, no matter how wide you open them. This means you’ll never have to duck under a partially cracked garage door to access the things you need. Whether you’re backing out a motorcycle or simply grabbing a tool, accessing your garage will be infinitely easier.
Another height-benefit of a sliding garage door is the overhead space it’ll open up. Since your garage door’s motor, track and door will be placed horizontally, you’ll have more space in your garage.
Sliding garage doors can also save you money. Every time a garage door is opened, heat and air-conditioned air escapes. If you partially open your garage door, less air will escape. This means your HVAC won’t have to work hard to compensate for the lost warm/cool air.
Sliding garage doors make much less noise than their traditional counterparts. Since the garage door opens horizontally, the motor doesn’t have to work as hard to open the doors. Any rooms or offices in the vicinity of the garage door will be much quieter.
Sliding garage doors are also easier to maintain. Hardware, panels and tracks are easier to repair than traditional garage door components.
Finally, sliding garage doors are easy to use. You can easily open them manually, use a power-operated model, or both. This means that if you ever lose power at your home or business, you’ll still be able to access your garage.
