Tips for Improving Your Garage Door’s Curb Appeal

When a person looks at your home, one of the first things that they’ll notice is your garage. To improve your garage door’s curb appeal, and potentially the value of your home, too, there are a number of easy steps that you can take. For professional help, the team at Affordable Garage Door Inc. in the Lake County, Indiana area is ready to meet with you today.

Invest in an Upgrade

If your garage door is outdated, investing in an upgrade might not only improve your home’s curb appeal, but also your home’s value and garage door safety as well. You can make your garage door more visually appealing by choosing to include features such as:

  •      Windowpanes;
  •      Unique building materials;
  •      Distinctive patterns.

The style that you choose will say a lot about your home and yourself. Browse Affordable Garage Door Inc.’s many garage door styles for inspiration.

If you’re not sure whether or not you should upgrade your garage door, you should have it assessed by a professional for any signs of damage. Old wood can decay, and dents or cracks in a garage door can be unattractive and even dangerous.

Use Color

The right color can be eye-catching, interesting, and make your garage (and therefore your home) look much more attractive. And don’t feel as though you have to choose something bland or boring, or that you have to match the garage door color to the color of your front door – oftentimes, the bolder, the better.

Add Lighting

Garage door lighting serves two primary purposes: first, it attracts the eye to your garage, adding curb appeal, and second, it provides your home with a little extra security – criminals are less likely to attempt a break-in when a home or garage is well-lit. In addition to good lighting, you can also add some accessories to your garage door, like hanging plants on the side, to make it even more attractive.
