When it comes to your home’s interior, the fanfare goes to style and décor. But what many of us forget is that the first thing that creates an impression of our homes is actually the garage door! So here are 3 golden rules about choosing garage doors.
- Pick a material that suits your climate. It’s easy to think of garage doors as merely functional objects that offer security and shelter for your cars and belongings, but they should also work well with the climate. If you live near the coast, ask your retailer which material will work best to resist corrosion.
- Pick a style that matches your home. When you’ve decided on a material, you now need to consider your desired aesthetics. No longer are garage doors just solid sheets of color! Today, they can incorporate windows and lights, and even match the architectural design of your home. From double-sided doors to traditional carriage-style, there’s no limit to your imagination.
- Don’t forget about safety. While the first priority of garage doors is functionality, they should also have all the latest safety features to ensure no one gets hurt. Teach your children not to play in or around the door.
