Garage Door Trends for 2017

Your garage door should complement your house and add style.  It’s similar to the clothes you choose to wear; you want them to fit well and be comfortable, not look out of place.  If you feel your garage door is dated, not energy efficient, and taking away from your home’s pleasing aesthetic, then you might want to consider updating it!  


The typical cost to install a new garage door is under $1000.  That’s probably much cheaper than the average repair to the car that your garage is storing!  Since you care about your car, everything else in your garage and your home, updating your garage door is a sound financial investment.

It’s winter time.  Whether the snow falls or not, the cold never lets up.  Is your house at least ten degrees colder near the door to your garage?  Do you work a lot in your garage?  A well-insulated garage will save you money throughout the year in lower energy costs.  A room sharing the same wall or located above is likely feeling the effects of the temperature from your garage.  Combat the outside temperatures smarter with insulation and save in the future with insulation!  



There are many different materials to choose from for your garage door.  Each material comes with different costs and advantages.  Fiberglass is the most common and is easy to paint if you want to change the color.  Wood brings a classic and earthy feel.  For a modern look, metal and glass will make your garage stand out among your neighborhood.  Contact us for advice on what materials will improve your home the best!  



The garage is a large part, and quite often, the face of your home.  The color you choose can say a lot about your house.  Using the same color as the rest of your house will give it a calm and blended feel.  Choosing a different color will make it, and your home, stand out more.  Choosing a darker color will do this in a subtle way, while a brighter color will grab the attention of neighbors walking or driving by.  Using multiple colors, or an accent color, will grab even more attention.  What does the exterior of the rest of your home look like?  Is it a single color, or is part of it made of brick or other materials?  Utilize these colors in your garage door and really bring out the beauty of your home.  

Updating your garage door this year any number of ways can bring a very welcome change to your home’s ambience.  You should be smiling as you drive up to your house this year.  Like an inviting red painted front door to your home, invite the neighbors to take a pleasant view at your updated home!
