Most people don’t think about replacing their garage door until it’s really necessary, waiting until it’s broken, dirty, or no longer works. However, design-savvy homeowners understand how much of a difference a new garage door can make in an external makeover. For starters, this major element may take up more than a third of the front, which is a significant portion of your overall curb appeal. A new garage door, on the other hand, is considerably more than a one-step makeover. Because most potential purchasers assess a property by its outside, it can also prove to be a best-bang-for-your-buck home renovation that boosts the home’s resale value.
Turn to your garage door first to offer a unified quality to your home’s exterior, better complement an existing architectural element, or completely alter things up. A brief tour of three changes, presented to you by the garage door specialists at Professional Garage Door Services, is guaranteed to inspire you!
Strike a Balance
Because you’re aware that your front door talks to everyone who walks in or simply passes by, you’ve undoubtedly given it a lot of consideration. By the same rationale, your garage door, which is more larger and more visible, should get the same, if not more, attention. Consider letting your front door set the tone for a new garage door if you already adore it. It’s much easier to make a selection when both doors have a similar design, and the two doors complement and produce harmony. This was the strategy taken in the exterior renovation of this home in Northern California. Professional Garage Door Services Steel Collection options were a near fit for the home’s modern, midcentury architecture and the current front door. The Modern Steel Collection, which comes in a flush or grooved steel panel design, has 13 factory finish options and a broad range of glass and window options, including insulated and frosted, and is the perfect complement to a bold, modern front door. Do you live in a house with a unique design? Professional Garage Door Services has selections that are tailored to your home’s architecture.
Contrast is a great way to make your image pop.
You may imagine that a garage door, which is an afterthought, would blend in with the more prominent parts of a home’s façade. The door, in actuality, detracts from the overall look. The beige garage doors blend in with the exterior on this property, but that doesn’t take away from the fact that they were the first thing you saw as you turned into the driveway. The new Professional Garage Door Services Gallery Collection garage doors’ deep stain finish provided much-needed warmth and contrast, bringing the entire house to the foreground. With antique elements like a grooved panel design, distinctive finishes, and optional ornamental windows, the Gallery Collection takes the famous raised-panel steel garage door to the next level—ideal for a Craftsman charmer like this! Why fade into the background when you can make a statement?
Restore the charm of the original
A property built more than half a century ago may have had many ownership changes and a slew of modifications or architectural changes, not all of which will keep its original charm. This Tudor, for example, was installed with a rolling steel door in the 1970s, which detracted from the remainder of the house’s architectural style until the following owners arrived. Starting with the eyesore of a garage door, their curb appeal renovation prioritized reviving the building’s attractiveness. A new garage door, when combined with other changes, may completely transform the look of your home! A stained redwood carriage-house garage door from the Professional Garage Door Services Wood Collection complements the recently painted windows and front entry of this majestic Tudor, as well as the attractive front garden and picket fence. These garage doors are handcrafted from four or five layers of wood (including Knotty Alder, Spanish Cedar, White Oak, Ironwood, and African Mahogany) and insulated with polystyrene for improved energy efficiency. If you can imagine it, Professional Garage Door Services can design and build it to your exact requirements for unique style, quality, security, and, of course, wow-worthy curb appeal!
