Welcome back! In our previous post, we talked about the importance of choosing the right garage door style for your home. The exterior of your home can easily get neglected. Our focus for making the interior of our homes spotless and trendy far outweighs the attention given to the exterior of our home. Garage doors are a great way to ensure that the exterior of your home looks great at all times. Below are a few more tips for choosing the right garage door style for your Raleigh home:
Garage doors should coordinate with the architecture of your home.
After you have chosen the type of material you’d like for your door it’s time to consider the aesthetics you’d like your garage to have. Garage doors have come a long way from the days of plain doors. They no longer have to be just a solid field of color. Today you can get doors that have windows and other accents that make them unique. You can find doors that complement the architectural style of your home. From traditional carriage doors to double-sided contemporary selections; there is no limit to your options!
Unexpected curb appeal
To choose the right garage door for your home’s exterior often requires you to do a little observation session. Stand back at the edge of your yard or even across the street and review your home as a whole. What is absent? Is your garage completely noticeable from the street? Is the garage façade hidden behind a tree? Do you live in a neighborhood where most of the homes have the same motif?
Answering these questions while observing your home’s exterior from afar can help you choose the right garage door for your home. Your curb appeal depends on the look of your entire home not just the flowers and mailbox. If your garage is noticeable from the street, it’s a good idea to make sure the garage doors work to enhance your curb appeal!
Different garage doors; different maintenance requirements.
As we’ve stated before, garage door maintenance is important. How much maintenance your door requires will vary depending on the type of door you choose. It’s impossible to choose a garage door style that never needs any type of maintenance. Your garage door should be serviced by a garage door professional every few years to ensure the springs, mechanical parts, garage door opener and overall integrity of the door are still sound.
While you may choose a garage door that will require minimal maintenance keep in mind that even those that are easier to maintain still need expert maintenance checks by Hanson Overhead Garage Door Service of Raleigh.
