Your garage door, especially if it faces the street, is one of the first items that people see when they come to visit or even drive by your home.
A fresh looking garage door creates "curb appeal" for any home, and whether you are contemplating selling or just want your house to stand-out on the block, a new garage door will increase the value of your property. Garage doors make a statement about the overall aesthetics and maintenance of your home. Garage doors are available in a host of different colors and styles that can accentuate any property.
Modern garage doors are now insulated, and for those homes where one or more garage walls is a common house wall, and/or there is a room above the garage and/or the garage is used as a workshop, an insulated garage door will save you energy in both heating and cooling your home. As well, an insulated garage door, with an added thermo-barrier and weather stripping will protect household items that are stored in the garage from large swings in temperature.
Heavier layers of insulation are now available that will allow you to use the garage as an extra room.
The latest metal garage doors are very low maintenance with backed on finishes that only require washing to bring them back to a new appearance. You will never be faced with painting your garage door again.
