Building a home? Open your eyes! Even though garage doors represent up to 40% of a home's facade, they're often overlooked. Not anymore. Today's garage doors earn your attention; they are stronger, more energy-efficient and designed to impress! And considering the tremendous return on investment, a garage door can be an easy and worthwhile way to start creating your dream home.
From modern and sleek to rustic and charming, garage doors come in a wide variety of styles and materials to match any aesthetic. It's more fun than you might expect to discover the perfect door to complement your personality, your lifestyle and your home. Get started by considering various styles, materials and custom touches:
Carriage House: loaded with character and versatile enough to fit Craftsman, farmhouse, traditional homes and more.
Contemporary: clean and simple look with sleek windows and features that enhance modern exteriors.
Traditional: raised panels available in a variety of colors to match most homes.
Steel: attractive and easy to maintain with the broadest range of colors and insulation options.
Natural wood: a timeless option with plenty of design flexibility to make a one-of-a-kind statement.
Aluminum and glass: chic and modern with customizable glass options for just the right amount of light and privacy.
Faux wood composite: durable, low-maintenance material that won’t rot, warp or crack and can be painted or stained to coordinate with any home exterior.
A multitude of window styles, decorative hardware and unique colors make it easy to create a garage door that accentuates the finer details on your home's exterior.
Like any smart investment, a garage door offers a lot more than good looks. According to the Remodeling 2018 Cost vs. Value Report (www.costvsvalue.com), installing a new garage door generates the biggest ROI among home improvement projects with a nationwide average return of 98.3% at resale.*
Plus, insulated garage doors can significantly increase comfort and usable space in both hot and cold weather, while reducing energy loss by up to 71%. That means that even without temperature control, your garage can stay 10 to 20 degrees warmer in the winter or cooler in summer.
Boasting one of the biggest returns on investment and undeniable curb appeal, garage doors have earned their place as a prime opportunity for new home builders – and any other homeowner – to bring their vision to life.
