Benefits of Upgrading to an Automatic Garage Door

Automatic garage doors offer plenty of benefits over manual ones. They can be an invaluable addition to your home, with extra convenience, security and much more. In this blog, we’ll discuss the benefits of automatic doors and how you can have the ideal door supplied and fitted by Eastern Garage Doors.


The most apparent benefit is convenience. With an automatic garage door opener, you can open your door from the comfort of your car. You don’t have to get in and out to open and close the door, so going out into the rain is a thing of the past.

Most automatic doors also have lights to illuminate your front garden and garage. This is helpful in the winter or during bad weather, where increased visibility is vital.

Automatically closing doors are also available, so you don’t even have to remember to use the remote yourself; the doors will open and close themselves on their own for the ultimate convenience.


An automatic door removes the risk of fingers getting jammed or a faulty door falling down on someone. This makes them an ideal option for those with younger children or anyone with a medical condition such as arthritis that makes manually closing the door more difficult.


Your garage door is an important part of your home security. As well as storing important and valuable possessions, lots of garages have a door that leads through to the main house, so having a secure door is paramount. The automatic doors that we supply come with plenty of security features, including remotes that operate with a unique code so only you can gain access and settings that disable the remote control completely.

Low energy use

Despite being more technical than a manual door, automatic doors don’t need much power to work. Installing one won’t have a dramatic effect on the cost effectiveness of your home, or its carbon footprint.


These low maintenance doors will keep working their best for years, and in the rare event that something goes wrong, we’re on hand to help with our repairs service. We also offer regular servicing to prolong the life of your garage door and prevent future problems from happening.
