If you are like many homeowners on the hunt for a new garage door, then you are probably curious about the way it will look on your house. You've more than likely driven yourself bonkers trying to figure out which door model, color and materials fits best within your while still getting that appealing look.
As you begin your quest for a new garage door, you may be trying to choose one that looks great in a brochure. But what you should really be looking for is a new door that looks stunning on YOUR HOME!
Garage Door Style Can Add Value To Your Home
Your garage door covers approximately 30% of the front of your dwelling and is visible to all on-lookers on foot and by car. Studies have shown that a well chosen, aesthetically pleasing garage door can actually bump up the curb appeal, price and value of your home anywhere from 1-5%. That means that the right door can make your home more attractive to buyers and even more profitable to you! In the current housing market slump, anything you can do to help differentiate your home and make it more appealing than another is a smart investment.
Investing in a new garage door is not cheap. Installation of a new door will start in the low $500's, for a cheap looking steel pan door, to a few thousand for a custom built wood door. Before moving forward with a fairly large investment on a new door make sure you are going to be happy with the outcome by choosing a door that looks like a million bucks on YOUR home.
Ask your garage door installer if they have a way to show you a picture of what the door you decide on will look like on your house. Today, operations are equipping their technicians with the technology to make those inner-visions a reality before you commit to placing the order. Sales representatives can come to your house with a laptop and digital camera. They take a photo of your house, then feed the images into their laptop. After a few minutes running through their system they can show you exactly what your home will look like with a new door on it. Give it a try!
Remember, what you want is a beautiful looking exterior that not only you enjoy while living in your home, but that others will enjoy when considering to buy your home. Ultimately, what you want is something that is both affordable and looks appealing.
