You may want to consider replacing your garage door if it is getting up there in years. The fact is that if you cannot remember the last time you had it replaced, or if you have lived in your home for many years and have never replaced it, then your garage door is likely very outdated.
Garage door technology has come a long way in the last ten years, and new garage doors are stronger, safer, and more secure than ever before.
