Can you believe 2024 is almost here? As the year wraps up, we can’t help but to think about 2023 and all the amazing garage door projects we’ve worked on and our amazing customers, too! It was a banner year, and our team was busy- traveling all over Long Island, installing beautiful garage doors across the island, repairing doors, and installing garage door openers.

As you head into the new year, your thoughts might be on what updates you’d like to make for your home in 2024. If replacing your garage doors isn’t on the list, you may want to reconsider.

Here are our top reasons to invest in a new garage door in the new year. Make sure you read to the end because we’ve done this one David Letterman style. The top reason is the last!

#5. It can save you money. Replacing your garage door could yield an excellent return on investment, especially if your garage is heated or attached to your home. The latest garage doors offer excellent energy efficiency, even if you choose one that isn’t insulated. And because our technicians will make sure it fits perfectly, it will be easy to heat, cool, and keep comfortable. This can result in lower energy bills.

#4. It will operate smoothly. Can you imagine getting stuck in the garage when you’re late for work because your garage door has failed to open? The older your garage door is, the more it’s at risk of needing a repair. With a new garage door, you can be sure it will work properly 24/7.

#3. It can increase safety. One of the biggest reasons not to install a garage door yourself is because it can be dangerous. Garage door springs and pulleys – not to mention the heavy door itself – should be regularly maintained, and springs and pulleys must be replaced every few years. If your garage door and its components are older, it could mean it’s not as safe as it should be. Replacing your garage door could create a safer environment for you and your loved ones.

#2. It could be quieter. If you’re constantly woken up by someone opening or closing the garage door late at night or early in the morning, a new garage door could be the solution. New garage doors are designed to be quieter, so investing in one could make your home quieter and more peaceful.

And the number one reason to replace your garage door in 2024 is… 

#It can transform the look of your home. Replacing your garage door is one of the fastest and easiest ways to give your home a facelift. In fact, it’s one of the most popular suggestions realtors make to people ready to put their house on the market. There are so many gorgeous garage door styles to choose from now that one of the hardest parts is deciding which to choose for your home.

Does my homeowners insurance cover garage door damage?

“Is my garage door covered by my homeowners insurance?” It’s a question the team at All Island gets asked all the time.

The answer is complicated, especially if you have a detached garage door. And while we always refer our customers to their insurance policy when the question comes up, here are some general guidelines to consider.

It may or may not be worth filing an insurance claim for your damaged garage door. If your policy covers garage door damage and subsequent repair (or even if you think it does) and you decide to file a claim, you may have to pay a deductible, Sometimes, the cost of the deductible is high enough that it’s better to pay for the repair out of pocket.

Only some repairs will be covered. Usually, only some types of damage are covered by homeowners insurance. You’ll need to look through your policy or work with your agent to determine if the damage to your garage door is covered by yours.

Does it matter if my garage door is attached or detached for homeowners insurance coverage? Yes. If your garage is separate from your home, it’s generally included in an “other structures” policy. If you don’t have this type of policy (and especially if you want to protect other structures like your pool or fence), it may be worth investing in one.

Our garage doors are guaranteed. All Island carries high-quality garage doors made by top manufacturers that come with excellent warranties.
