Boost Your Curb Appeal with a New Garage Door
Posted on Apr 30, 2019
Everyone wants to come home to a house that sparkles like new. It’s easy to focus on your front door when you’re considering outdoor spring renovations, but a new garage door can be just as appealing and inviting. It can also increase the resale value of your home. New garage doors have a 98% return on investment.
You want to make sure that when someone walks up to your house they’re wowed. Your garage door takes up more than 30% of the front of your home so it can have a huge affect on the overall look of your home. So this year, when you’re sprucing up your yard with flowers and repainting your front door, make sure to take the time to care for your garage door too, whether that’s cleaning it up or replacing it with a new and modern door. It’s a fairly simple home improvement that will have an immediate impact on the look of your home.
Colour Scheme Matters
When you look at your home’s color scheme, how does your garage door fit? Does it match perfectly, make a bold statement, or stick out like a sore thumb? There’s no hard and fast rule when it comes to garage door colours, but a pop of colour always goes a long way in brightening up the appearance of your home. Just make sure you check the paint colour in natural light first. By adding a simple coat of paint, you can make your garage door a striking focal point of your home.
Match the Style of Your Home
Take a step back and look at your home’s exterior. Consider your siding choice and even your house numbers. What is the overall look and feel of your house? Is it cozy and welcoming or sleek and modern? Most importantly, does your garage door match the feel?
There are so many styles of garage doors today so there’s no reason yours can’t enhance the style of your home. We can install doors that mimic a traditional wood or provide you a sleek steel door. If your house needs something modern or edgy we have doors with sleek vertical windows or doors made with glass. We have a range of colours and styles to accentuate any style of home.
Look at New Trends
That’s right, your garage door can be trendy too. You can easily incorporate the latest technology and style trends into your garage door to give it a more luxurious feel. The latest trend in garage doors is carriage house doors, which are an easy way to make your house look high end. And don’t forget to incorporate trendy technology. Remote control and keyless entry doors are very common now, but why not invest in a smart door? It may not be visible from the curb but it will certainly bring your home into the 21st century.
Keep Everything Running Smoothly
Curb appeal doesn’t just mean aesthetics; it also means repairing your garage door. It’s super important that you keep all the inner workings of your door in peak condition. Inspect your garage door’s springs and chain drives, make sure to keep everything oiled, and replace damaged parts. This will keep your garage door operating for years to come, which is just as important as its appearance.
