You can go for many years without needing to replace your garage door, especially if you perform some maintenance work approximately once a year. However, if you are having problems with your old garage door, you should consider replacing it sooner rather than later. So perhaps you know you need to replace your garage door; but, do you know that autumn is the best time to do it? Here are a few reasons why.
Safer weather conditions
Autumn temperatures are ideal for most home improvements, as it’s not too cold nor too hot. Replacing a garage door is not an easy nor a short project, and as such performing it in extreme winter weather conditions can be very dangerous. For instance, ice and snow make it likely that an accident will happen, whilst frostbite can be a concern when working outside for a long time.
On the other hand, working outside during the summer can be exhausting due to high temperatures, which means more frequent breaks are necessary – which can make the process extremely time consuming. In other words, work completed in the summer or winter may take much longer and be unnecessarily more difficult.
Garage opening is exposed during the door exchange
Another factor to consider is that, during a garage door replacement, your garage will be exposed to the outside weather conditions for a few hours. Having your replacement garage door installed in the autumn months means that you can rest at ease knowing that you won’t be exposing your garage and home to extremely cold or warm temperatures.
Prevent Water and Snow Damages
During winter you will appreciate the new, thermally insulated garage door you installed this autumn, as it will buffer outdoor cold temperatures helping keep your house’s temperature unchanged as well as keep vehicle batteries from freezing. In the long term, an insulated garage door reduces your winter and summer power bills!
Moreover, a new door will protect your garage door from water and snow damages. So, it might be worth investing in a new garage door in autumn, out of all seasons, so your home can be fully prepared to withstand all the heavy rain and snow that our British winter usually brings with it.
