Energy Savings

Modern garage doors are designed to reduce energy consumption. Insulated garage doors can assist in reducing energy costs and can keep the temperature at least 10-20 degrees warmer in the winter months. With those cold winter nights in Utah, having an insulated garage door is not only a great investment for your home, it can aid in reducing wear and tear on your vehicles as well. Keeping the garage insulated reduces the amount of strain on a vehicle when it is starting in colder temperatures.

Maintenance

Most homeowners do not want to deal with any type of hassle from a garage door. When is the last time you cleaned the rollers or checked on the spring? Having annual garage door maintenance is essential to keeping your garage door working effectively. Advanced Door can service your garage door to keep it working functionally, and prevent serious issues from occurring like needing spring replacement.

Value

If you are planning to list your home for sale soon, it is important to select a garage door that will allow you to recoup your investment. On average, a homeowner can expect to recoup 91.5% of the investment of a new garage door.
