4 Ways To Update The Appearance And Functionality Of Your Home With Garage Door Renovations

by Landon Little

If your garage door is old, outdated, and in need constant repairs, rather than repairing it, you may be considering installing a new door. Today, there are a lot of choices for design, technology, and improvements that can be done to your home with a new residential garage door installation. The following solutions will help you update your home with a modern appearance and features with a new garage door installation:

1. Change How Your Door Opens

Today, there are many different options for garage doors, including conventional rolling type doors, horizontal doors that use hydraulic pistons to open them, or folding doors that fold upward.  If you have trouble with having enough space or want to have a different style of door, talk to the installation company about options like doors that open horizontally or folding doors.

2. Give Your Home More Attractive Features

In the past, most garage doors had a similar appearance with sectional panels that were almost all the same. Today, there are many different options for styles of doors that can be installed for your home. If your home has more of contemporary design, consider a modern style door. If your home has more traditional architectural design features, you may want to consider a door that has details like false brackets and molding details.

3. Improve the Energy Efficiency of Your Home with Insulated Door Panels and Better Seals

The garage can be an area where a lot of energy is lost due to the outside air finding its way into the rest of your home. Therefore, you may want to consider talking to the door installer about using insulated panels and upgrading the seals around the door. This can help improve the energy efficiency of your home by keeping the outside air out of the garage.

4. Automate Your Garage With Modern Garage Door Openers and Smart Technology

Lastly, consider some of the many options that are available for garage door openers and controls. If you want to easily operate the door, lights, and other installations in the garage, consider a smart garage door opener that can be controlled with a mobile app. The app can also give you other automation options for things like garage lighting.

These changes will improve the appearance of your home and provide you with a garage door that gives you more features. If you are ready to update the garage and appearance of your home, contact a garage door installation service and talk to them about some of these options.
