Your home's curb appeal matters. The exterior of your home is the first thing people see, which is especially important if you're looking to sell in the near future. Regardless, keeping a home with excellent curb appeal can give you pride in ownership and maintain the value of your property as well.
If you've been taking on exterior renovation projects to improve the curb appeal of your home, you've likely been focused on things like painting, freshening up the landscaping, and possibly replacing old windows and doors. One aspect of your home's curb appeal you won't want to neglect, however, is the garage door.
Benefits of Refreshing or Replacing Your Garage Door
An old and dated garage door can really detract from the overall appearance of your home. On the flip side, refreshing your existing garage door with a fresh coat of paint or completely replacing your garage door with something new and modern can give your home an entirely new look. After all, think about what your home looks like from the street; more than likely, your garage doors take up a large portion of your home’s exterior.
Consider a Wood Grain Garage Door
If you're due for a new garage door, there are plenty of options that can help to improve your home's curb appeal. Consider, for example, a beautiful Panelift® garage door in wood grain from the Colorbond® Timber Coat range. These doors are designed to look like real wood while retaining all the functional benefits and long-term durability of a fiberglass door. You can completely transform the look of your home with a wood grain garage door that is available in six grains and colours.
Choose a Complementary Colour
If a wood grain door isn't quite your style, consider replacing your existing garage door with a new set of B&D roller doors or Panelift® Icon™ doors with a modern, contemporary, or traditional look (depending on your tastes). These doors are available in just about every colour imaginable, so you can select an option that best complements the existing colour scheme of your home.
Opt for Other Value-Adding Features
When selecting new garage doors, there are some other add-on features you may want to consider for better functionality and appeal. Insulated garage doors, for example, are an excellent way to keep your garage a more comfortable temperature year-round while potentially helping to control your energy costs in the process. B&D Panelift® Icon™ doors are also now available with an integrated B&D Auto Lock system, adding smart, keyless technology for added peace of mind. It's also a good idea to look into replacing older garage door openers along with your garage door remote at the same time you have your new doors installed. This way, you can be sure that all components of your garage door system are new.
