4 Things to Consider When Adding Windows to Your Garage Doors

Want to give your garage doors a new look? Consider adding windows to them. It’s not as difficult as you may think. Here are four things to consider when adding windows to your garage doors.

Why Add Windows

Why add windows in the first place? There are many benefits to adding new windows to your doors. First of all, it will make your garage doors more stylish and give your home a better curb appeal. This will raise the value of your home, and you will reap the returns when it comes time to sell or rent your home. Another reason to add windows is simply to have more sunlight in your garage, which comes in handy if you use your garage during the daytime to workout or do work.

New Windows or New Door?

Before deciding that you want to install new windows on your existing garage doors, consider for a moment whether it would be better to just install new doors. Taken into account the costs of both options, compare them, and then decide what you want to do. If your garage door is old, outdated, or not working as well as it used to, it may simply be better to get a new one with preinstalled windows. That will also remove the hassles of trying to find a window that fits well with your existing door.

Other Windows

When choosing windows for your garage doors, make sure to take your existing windows into account. Your garage door windows should complement the design of your existing windows, not stick out like a sore thumb.


Adding windows to your garage doors can have a negative effect on the insulation of your doors. To combat that, make sure that you install windows that are designed for insulation.
