Why a Cheap Garage Door Will End Up Costing More Money

By / 30th January, 2017 / Our Blog

A new garage door is a big investment to make, and we understand why homeowners may be tempted to cut corners and purchase a product with a lower price. But, being in the garage door services business for many years has made us aware of the hindrances and headaches that cheap garage doors cause again and again.

To help you steer clear of paying more for an inexpensive garage door (in time, money, and worry), Precision Garage Door of Houston’s professionals put together the following post. Here’s what you’re really paying for with the purchase of a cheap garage door.

Compromised Home Security

One thing you can count on about cheap garage doors is that they’re made from cheap materials. While quality-built doors feature strong and sturdy constructions, bargain doors aren’t nearly as solid and can easily be dented, damaged, or broken into, putting your property and your family at risk.

More Frequent Replacements

No one wants to have to put in a new garage door every year. But, if you choose to spend money on a cut-rate door, that could be the reality. Your garage door should last 30 years or more.

Consider the price of a durable, quality door compared to that of a cheap door multiplied by 30! Yes, quality trumps quantity here.

More Maintenance/Repairs

The reason why a cheap garage door can be sold for a steal is because its parts and inner mechanics aren’t built to last. Light-duty panels can be knocked in by a rogue basketball throw while inner parts such as the door’s springs, can only take a fraction of the use that a quality door would be able to handle before requiring replacement or repair.

Potential Damage to Property

During your search for a new door, it’s important to keep in mind that all garage door systems are engine-powered, tension-loaded pieces of machinery. Because the base parts and materials used to make inexpensive doors aren’t fortified to handle heavy use, there’s a much higher margin for error.

A fleet of loose parts or pieces on the verge of breaking can have dangerous and costly consequences, from damaging your car to putting the safety of those who use the garage every day at risk.
