Residential garage doors play an important role in the lives of Phoenix, AZ homeowners. Because they are such a regular part of your everyday life, it can be easy to overlook all that they do to make your life simpler and easier. Many of the functions and benefits of a residential garage door in Phoenix are subtle; by gaining a greater appreciation and understanding of their role in your life you will be more likely to take care of your door. Whether this means buying a newer, higher quality door or scheduling more regular maintenance and repairs, you can count on Cookson Garage Doors to help.
Some of the most critical objectives of a residential garage door relate to security and protection for your home. Not only does a functioning garage door offer privacy, but it deters thieves and burglars, keeps out pests, and protects your home against natural disasters and severe weather. Even with quality home security systems, a broken garage door is essentially an invitation for someone to enter your home, especially because the door between the garage and your home is usually not connected to the alarms. As for pests, whether they be furry or creepy-crawly, a garage with a strong seal can serve as an uncrossable barrier. This includes preventing severe winds, rain, and other strong weather from getting inside and damaging your home.
The other ways a garage door in good repair can improve your life are many and include financial benefits as well as aesthetic ones. By helping regulate the temperature of your home, not only will your family be more comfortable, but you will also be able to experience significant savings on your heating and cooling costs. These savings are especially important here in Phoenix with our blistering Arizona summers. Additionally, an energy efficient garage door can qualify you for government incentives. Time is also money, and having a reliable garage door allows you to get where you need to go on time.
On the aesthetic front, the surface area of your garage door makes up a significant proportion of your home’s total exterior and it serves as your family’s primary entry point into your home. You deserve to enjoy coming home just as much as—if not more than—your guests deserve to enjoy visiting your home, yet so many of us place significantly more thought and money into our guests’ entryway than we do into our garages. The truth of the matter is that you can’t put a price on the good feeling you get when you love the way your garage looks.
