Garage door are as important as entrance doors if your property has a garage or outbuilding. It’s another entrance into your property, so needs securing and looking after in just the same way as a front entrance. What’s more, your tenants will want to be given options in how to use their garage, so by installing a quality door, you are opening up the options for them. This is much more likely to create happy tenants – just the kind that you want in your property, who are much more likely to look after it and stay living there long term. As a landlord, this is exactly the kind of tenant you want, so anything you can do to attract them is going to be highly beneficial to you.
An insulated door could be everything you are looking for in terms of your rental property’s garage door. Offering superior performance, excellent aesthetics and a better all-round experience, insulated doors are a cut above your standard low-cost garage doors. They can benefit you (and your tenants) well into the future, offering value for money and innovation, all within one single garage door. If you choose something that is of a higher quality for your rental home, you won’t look back. It’s going to last you longer and will make life better for the people living in your homes.
The benefits of insulated garage doors – from a landlord’s perspective
These are some of the benefits you can expect when you install insulated garage doors:
- Better heat retention. An insulated sectional door will be double skinned, and if steel, will usually have a foam filled central core as well. This will help to keep the property warmer, meaning there is less need for heating. It will generally be in better condition as well, because a warm property is a dry property – one that doesn’t suffer from issues with damp. This is a huge issue in the rental market, so if you make sure this isn’t a problem your tenants face, they will automatically be better off than many.
- Cooler in summer. A well insulated door will generally keep a garage at a steadier temperature. This means it will also help keep heat out in summer, so your tenants can enjoy a more comfortable atmosphere all year round.
- Gives your tenants a different way to use their garage space. More and more people are choosing to do something different with their garage space. If your tenants are lucky enough to have a garage space, they may choose to do something different with it entirely and see it as a valuable space that can do more than act as a parking space. Better insulation allows them to use it as something like a gym or office.
- Long lasting. Sectional insulated doors are high quality, so will generally last longer. By investing in a high-quality sectional door, you won’t need to replace it all the time and won’t incur these costs. Keeping your costs down as a landlord is essential.
