If you need to have a new garage door installed on your home, don't stop at the door. You might think you'll be fine with only the garage door replacement, but that's not the case. In fact, you could be setting yourself up for problems down the road if you stop at the garage door. Before you install your new garage door, read the information provided below. You'll find four more components you should install at the same time. 


If you're going to have a new garage door installed, be sure to replace the opener at the same time. This is especially important if your garage door and garage door opener are the same age. If your garage door has worn out, chances are good that your garage door opener has worn out as well. Replacing them at the same time will ensure that they're both on the same warranty schedule. It will also ensure that your garage door opener has enough power to operate your new garage door. 


If you need a new garage door, you also need new hardware. If your old hardware is in good condition, you might think you can avoid the replacement costs for new hardware. That's not the case though. Your old garage door hardware might look good, but that doesn't mean it's structurally sound. Installing your new garage door with existing hardware could increase the risk of accidents and injuries. To avoid the risk, you should install new hardware when you install your new garage door. 


If you're ready to install a new garage door, don't forget about the insulation. Your new garage door will go a long way towards making your garage more energy efficient. Installing insulation will improve the energy efficiency even more. Luckily, insulation can be added to your garage door during the installation. You don't even need to do any additional construction to your garage. The insulation is installed on the back of your new garage door. 


If you need to invest in a new garage door, now's the time to invest in new technology as well. During the installation of your garage door, you can have it connected to your smart home system. That way, you can control your garage door from inside the house. You can also monitor your garage door when you're away from home.
