The need for a new garage door doesn’t always arrive at a convenient time. In fact, it often arrives during cash crunches — like around the holidays or right after the April tax deadline. What do you do when you need a new garage door but money is tight? Consider your garage door financing options.

You never want to pay interest if you don’t have to. But, that said, there are several circumstances under which it’s a good idea to finance your garage door. Here’s a look at four things you should know about financing a garage door at your South Florida home:

  1. Options: Financing can often unlock options that aren’t available when paying with cash. For example, what if there’s a garage door that’s going to deliver longer-term use and far more value than an option that’s just slightly less expensive — but the more expensive option is out of your price range? If you can find favorable financing terms, making an investment in the more expensive garage door is going to pay off in the long run. Also, not only can a garage door of higher quality last longer, but it can also help boost your home’s resale value.
  2. Emergencies: There are often true emergencies that come up. If your garage door completely collapses and there’s simply nothing to be done other than a full replacement, that’s an emergency. But what if you don’t have the cash? You can sometimes put a new garage door on a credit card, but finding garage door financing often comes with a much lower interest rate. Don’t just throw a new garage door on a credit card in a pinch when you might be able to find financing for a garage door at much better terms.
  3. Flexibility: Sometimes you do have the cash for a new garage door — but you want to spend it elsewhere. Financing allows you to spread payments out over a longer term so you build up more cash in reserve — or deploy your cash in an investment that’s going to pay out more than the garage door financing’s interest rate. That’s just smart use of money.
  4. Specials: Here’s where garage door financing gets really good: when you find a company or manufacturer running a special. Broten often runs specials that offer money-off on one- and two-car garage doors, free accessories and more!
