Fall is one of the best times for exterior home improvement projects. Everyone wants to be outside soaking up as much of the fall sun as they can before winter hits. They also want to make sure their home is ready for the chilly temperatures and crazy storms we’re sure to get at some point in the next few months. This makes it the perfect time to do some work in, and on, your garage and garage door! At Discount Garage Door, we’ve been replacing a lot of old, worn-out carriage style doors like the ones you see in this photo. This was from a recent project in the Oklahoma City area. We were able to replace the old doors with insulated ones, which are much more energy efficient and could save you a bundle off your energy bill this winter.
As you can see in the picture below, they are also much better looking than the old doors, which is almost as important as efficiency. A garage door often takes up between 35 and 40 percent of the front of your home. Getting rid of old, rotted or worn-out garage doors dramatically changes the look and feel of a house and increases the curb appeal and potential resale value. However, the improvements aren’t only aesthetic. Garage doors are the largest moving parts to your home and the majority of American families—71 percent—use their garage door as the primary entrance to their home, even more than the front door. Ensuring you have a reliable garage door keeps you and your family safe and ensures that would-be burglars can’t find their way into your home through your garage.
You can read two of our recent blogs about how replacing your garage door adds to the resale value of your home—and is one of the best value home improvement projects—as well as how to keep your home safe from would-be burglars while you’re away for the holidays!
