Commercial garage doors protect your assets from damage, theft and vandalism and while most professionally installed doors will last for years with proper servicing and maintenance, there will likely come a time where you may need to consider upgrading or replacing your commercial roller doors.

Tell-tale Signs That You Should Replace or Upgrade Your Industrial Garage Doors
While a well-maintained garage door can last for decades, if you begin to notice any of the following problems, you might need to consider replacing your door:
- It regularly breaks down – if you’re frequently needing to call professionals to fix issues with your door, the costs can quickly add up. It might be more cost-effective to invest in a new, reliable model.
- It has been impacted or damaged – whether it has been hit by a forklift, car or another piece of heavy equipment, accidents like this can cause misalignment, cracks and dents that are difficult to repair.
- It has been forced open – if someone has broken into your business through the door, chances are it has been damaged beyond repair.
- It looks old and worn out – if its weathered appearance is detracting from your business, a brand new commercial garage door will enhance your property’s curb appeal.

Choosing the Best New Garage Doors for Your Business
If you have made the decision to install new doors, you don’t necessarily need to replace them with the exact doors you had before or use the same company you previously used. You should consider:
Functionality and Additional Features
Upgrading gives you the chance to opt for a more heavy-duty roller door or add important features that you never had previously. Consider the amount of traffic in and out of the door on a daily basis and how often the door opens and closes to determine the type that best suits the needs of your business. There are many customisable options available such as neoprene weather seals to prevent moisture from entering the premises, extra insulation, and a wide range of advanced security features.
A Motor Upgrade
Installing new commercial doors is a great time to upgrade from manual to motorised operation. The need for a motorised garage door will usually depend on how often the door needs to be opened and closed. For industrial doors that must be opened several times a day, a heavy-duty automated motor will be best. As a general rule, the larger and heavier the door, the bigger the motor required.
Increased Energy Efficiency
Insulated commercial garage doors with high quality weather seals are the perfect choice to maximise thermal efficiency. Doors are one of the biggest areas of heat loss and gain in a building, so having added insulation and effective seals, internal temperatures can be regulated more easily which will see a reduction in your heating and cooling costs.
After Sales Support and Service
Engage the services of a company that can not only install custom doors to suit your needs, but provide an ongoing maintenance and servicing plan to ensure you get the most out of your investment.
