Curb Appeal Is Boosted With a New Garage Door

One of the easiest and most savvy ways to give your home’s curb appeal a mini makeover is by replacing your worn, stained garage door. While most normally put off replacing their garage’s door until it stops working or its shabby appearance takes away from their home’s appearance, those with a sharp eye for design realize that the garage accounts for up to 30% of their home’s facade. That’s a third of your home’s total curb appeal you can improve with a new, visually-appealing door.

The installation of a new garage door, however, does a lot more for your home than boost its curb appeal. The replacement can also increase the resale value of your home as most prospective buyers assess a home by its outward appearance. Whether you want to highlight an existing architectural characteristic, develop a more cohesive quality to the exterior of your house, or do something totally new, a garage door is a great place to start.

Balance

Many assign great importance to the appearance of their home’s front door because it’s an entry point for visitors and front and center for those passing by. Doesn’t the larger garage door deserve the same attention? If you’re happy with your front door, why not match its appearance and tone with your garage door? The doors would complement each other with great harmonious effect.

Charm in Curb Appeal

Homes that are a few decades old or more often experience many ownership changes and a number of renovations throughout the years which all contribute to it losing its original character. With the wide selection of beautifully handcrafted garage doors with vintage details available today, you can restore the original charm of your home’s appearance and enjoy the benefits of updated doors as well. Many garage doors available today are energy-efficient, require less maintenance, and offer improved security to protect your home.

Contrast

The wrong garage door can actually detract from a home’s overall look. The right door, however, can add contrast and warmth to the house’s overall appearance instead, being the first thing people notice when they pull into the driveway. Many of today’s new garage doors offer rich, unique finishes, impressive detailing, and attractive optional windows.
