Does your garage door need an update, is it looking kind of rough around the edges? How can you go about modernizing your garage door to your liking and still updating it to help you lower your energy costs or to help you give more value to your home.

Your garage door should not be broken or falling apart to get your attention seeing as how it’s the biggest moving part of your home and it takes up about one third of your homes facade. Most all real estate agents will tell you that by updating or replacing your garage door will help you to get a better asking price for your home and it may even help you to sell quicker.

Here are some ideas from Garage Door Services of Sacramento California for garage door makeovers that will help to make sure that your trends are up to date with all the modern trends.

Current Garage Door Styles And Trends


If your home is about 20 plus years or older then it’s very likely that you may have to choose a more classic style garage door for your home. If you have decided to build a new home then a more contemporary and modern style garage door with clean and straight lines are building more popular with the new constructions. Carriage-house and the ranch style garage doors are still more popular in the rural areas.

Whatever style garage door it is that you wish to have on your home all garage door manufacturers can help to make that happen for you. The baby boomer generation tend to prefer the more traditional models such as carriage-house style doors. The younger generations tend to want the more modern of style as well as all the smart features that are available out there now, like those that can link up to your phones or tablets via WiFi.

Garage Doors That Are Energy Efficient

We all realize that we should be a little more ecological when it comes to the heating and cooling inefficiencies of our homes, for example if your windows are old and letting in cold drafts of air then it is best to replace them to retain the warmth in your house and the same goes for your garage and garage doors.

Often times we overlook the heating of our garages, if we do not heat the garage then the chilly cold air gets into the house every time the door is opened, therefore dropping the inside temperature and causing the heater to work more and the same goes for hot air and the a/c.

Garage door companies now also offer some of the best insulation valves as well as very effective weather sealing systems that are available for your garage doors. This will help to keep the garage cool in the summertime and warm in the winter time which will help to keep your energy bill costs down.

Garage Door Openers With The Latest High-Tech Features

Garage door openers have come a long way in the past 5 years. The internet connectivity and the energy efficiency of the electric garage door openers are now a lot better and they can also help to simplify your life a lot.

Not all garage door openers are compatible with the compact fluorescent light bulbs without causing an interference between the opener and the remote. So keep that in mind if you use the garage door opener light as your primary light in the garage.

You can also choose to get a garage door opener with a DC motor that uses less energy than the other motors out there. The DC motor starts up slowly and then speeds up to regular speeds and then it stops slowly as well. A lot of these openers can also come with a backup battery.

Using Your Smartphone To Open The Garage

Now you can use your smartphone or any other smart device to open and close the garage door as well as be able to monitor the status of your garage door, all from the comforts of wherever you may be from anywhere in the world. This smart function is great for kids when they get home from school, they can use an app on their phone to open the garage door to get safely inside instead of carrying a key around.

Garage Doors Shouldn’t Be Installed By Just Anyone

Garage Door Services of Sacramento California wants you to remember that your garage door should not be installed by just anybody, this is to help ensure the safety of you and your loved ones. So if you have a need to have a garage door installed then just call a garage door professional and they will be happy to help you to not just install the garage door but they can also help you to choose the door that is best suited for you.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
