Why Summer Is The Ideal Season For Getting A New Garage Door Installed

As the days grow longer, the sun (we hope!) shines more frequently and the temperatures rise, many homeowners across the country often take the summer months to start thinking about home improvement projects. While landscaping and outdoor renovations often take the spotlight, one area that shouldn’t be overlooked is the garage and your garage door.

And what better time to upgrade your garage door than during the sunny and warmer months of summer?

In our latest blog post, we’ll explore why the summer months really are the perfect time for installing a new garage door.

Favourable Weather Conditions

Summer in the UK typically brings milder weather with fewer rain showers, less winds, warmer temperatures, and far fewer storms compared to other seasons. This makes it an ideal time for outdoor projects, including garage door installation. With the weather cooperating, your local garage door installers can work efficiently without the worry of delays due to rain or wind. Plus, homeowners can enjoy the peace of mind that their new garage door is installed properly and securely.

Enhanced Curb Appeal

The exterior of your home is the first thing visitors and passersby notice, and a new garage door can significantly enhance its curb appeal. With longer daylight hours during summer, it’s easier to showcase your home’s exterior improvements. Whether you opt for a modern design, traditional style, or something in between, a new garage door can instantly elevate the look of your home and increase its value. This is especially true if you are looking to sell your property, as a new garage door will add value and showcase the level of enhanced security your property has.

Energy Efficiency

A well-insulated garage door can help regulate temperatures inside your garage, making it more energy efficient. During the summer months, when temperatures can soar, an insulated garage door can prevent heat from entering your garage, keeping it cooler and more comfortable. This can also have a positive impact on your home’s overall energy consumption and utility bills. And then thinking ahead to the winter months, a well-insulated and modern garage door can keep your property warmer and reduce your energy bills, so it means you are getting ready for when the weather will change, which we all know it will!

Increased Security

Security is always a top priority for any property owner, and a new garage door can provide added peace of mind. Modern garage door systems come equipped with advanced security features, but even just replacing like for like will increase your security, as the older the garage door, the more issues it will generally have, with wear and tear playing a huge role in how secure your garage door is. Installing a new garage door during the summer ensures that your home and belongings are well-protected year-round, and the more secure your property, the more of a deterrent is.

Convenience and Flexibility

Summer is often a time when families have more flexibility in their schedules, with children out of school and long holidays planned. This makes it an ideal time to tackle home improvement projects, including a new garage door installation. With fewer commitments and distractions, you can focus on selecting the perfect garage door for your home and coordinating the installation process without feeling rushed. And you also know that the job is less likely to have to be called off or delayed due to weather changes, which once again, we all know too well!

There’s no denying the benefits of installing a new garage door, and summer is the perfect time to make it happen. From favourable weather conditions to enhanced curb appeal and increased energy efficiency, the advantages of a summer installation are clear. So, if you’ve been considering upgrading your garage door, seize the opportunity this summer and transform your home’s exterior while the sun is shining.
