Improve The Value Of Your Home
There are at least two unwritten rules that have stood the test of time when it comes to improving a home’s curb appeal and the value of any home.
The first unwritten rule is to remodel the kitchen and eating areas of the house before anything else. If only one room in the house can be stylish as well as functional, it should be the kitchen. The second rule, and the focus of this article, is to make sure your garage door is in order, both visually and operationally.
Make a note of how much more appealing a house with a clean, sharp and stylish garage door is when compared to a home with a garage door in disrepair. The second home may be much more valuable and more functional than the first but a potential buyer may never know.
There is no denying the garage’s importance in today’s home. Almost every single family home build in the United States in the past two decades have garages planned and built just as carefully as the rest of the house. With garages being more important than ever, a booming garage door company business has emerged to meet the need for stylish and functional doors.
If you need an upgrade to your current home, do yourself and your neighbors a favor and look into a new garage door. Your local garage door company will have access to most garage door styles and types to help you make the right selection for your home.
There are more types of garage doors available than you may realize. Some of the most popular garage door types include:
- Up and Over Doors
- Roll Up Doors
- Sectional Doors (Usually travel up and over)
- Side Opening Doors
- Folding Doors
- Swing Open Doors (Carriage House)
There are even more garage door styles than types. That stands to reason as the garage door style is another means for the homeowner to display their personal style.
Garage door styles range from classic to contemporary to custom built. Even a ‘standard’ sectional garage door can be customized to some degree with the number and shape of windows, for example. Any good garage door company will be happy to show you any combination of garage door type and style you can imagine.
For good measure you can select the material (steel, wood, vinyl, fiberglass, etc.) and the color you prefer to compliment your home to the fullest and further customize your door.
A new garage door will immediately improve your home’s curb appeal, improve your energy efficiency and increase the value of your house. That is a pretty solid trifecta for any home improvement.
One of the most important things to remember – don’t let the amount of information overwhelm you when looking for the perfect garage door. Take your time, shop online and even watch an hour of television to start getting an idea of what you want.
