A booming local economy and an influx of new residents create the need for garage door installation services.

Moving season is here, and analysts project it will be a busy one for Northern Virginia. This means the area's top garage door installation companies, such as Quality Garage Doors, look to have their hands full with plenty of work over the summer.

The economy is booming in the D.C. suburbs, with unemployment hovering under 4 percent. Soon-to-be college graduates are making plans to start their new lives in the region. Local companies in growth mode are siphoning workers from other large cities.

Summer is also the most popular time of year for local moves. It's when young families move out of apartments and buy their first homes, and established residents upgrade from starter houses to their dream houses. Also, the warm weather means builders will be working hard erecting new neighborhoods all over the region.

With all the upcoming moving activity and the influx of new residents, home builders and repair companies should be busy in the coming months, and the demand for garage door installation and repairs should be particularly strong.

The 2010 U.S. Census reported that 74 percent of single-family homes have a carport or garage. The number is 46 percent for townhouses and row homes.

New homes are even more likely to feature garages. Modern buyers demand modern amenities, which almost always include garages. And plenty of new homes are going up in Northern Virginia.

The first quarter of 2017 saw the most housing starts in the region since 2007 — the end of the last housing boom. A mixture of single-family home and condo activity is driving the new construction.

With more homes come more garages, so the professionals at Quality Garage Doors have their work cut out for them. The demand for garage door installation, garage door repair and ancillary services such as garage door openers and remotes is strong and getting stronger.

Whether they're buying new homes or upgrading current ones, local residents say it just makes sense to have a functional garage. The D.C. climate offers four seasons, an attractive benefit to those who loathe boring weather. But summers are hot, winters are cold, and homebuyers see the benefit of protecting their vehicles from the elements on harsh weather days.
Buyers also say they prefer garages because of resale value. With more homes featuring garages every year, the value of homes without garages is suffering. Not having a garage — or having a garage with a door that doesn't function — turns off potential buyers.

Garage door installation and repair go hand-in-hand with a busy Northern Virginia moving season. As the region's premier garage door company, Quality Garage Doors is ready to meet the demand.
