August is National Curb Appeal month.  Since the garage door is the largest and most used entryway into the home, it should also be stylish.  Below are a few tips on selecting a garage door that will add that valuable curb appeal and enhance your home’s exterior
 

  • Consider the view from the street.  Before deciding what type of garage door will look good on your home, go out to your curb and take an overall look at your house.  Look at the colors, textures and the style of the house.  Decide if a traditional style garage door is the way to go or would the look of a carriage style garage door be more suitable.  Then decide on the color and texture.  The key here is to compliment your home’s overall exterior.
  • Build value and convenience long into the future.  Making the best selection is important.  You want to choose a garage door with low maintenance and a strong warranty.  Select a door that will give your home a new look with minimal upkeep.  Beauty is important but you want a garage door that will last for many years to come!
  • Windows can add a dramatic new look.  Making the decision to add windows to your garage door is mostly a matter of preference.  If you do decide to add windows, make sure you take a good look at the windows on your home and try to choose a similar style for your garage door.
