June 14, 2016

If you want to boost curb appeal and invest in a high-quality product, replacing your garage doors may be a perfect small-scale home renovation you haven’t thought of yet. Most people overlook their garage doors, or don’t think of replacing them unless they break. Today, however, the garage door industry is making strides with designs that can completely upgrade the exterior of your home.

Aluminum and Glass Garage Doors

Clopay has several new collections on the market that debuted at this year’s International Builders’ Show, including their Modern Steel collection and Avante Collection garage doors. They make the doors in these collections out of aluminum and glass, creating beautiful yet solid alternatives to common garage doors.

Garage doors today are completely customizable, from bold color choices to specialty glass panels. Clopay can tailor your garage doors to your specifications, so you can be sure you’re getting exactly what you imagined. You can adjust Clopay’s aluminum doors to let a certain level of light into your garage, or arrange the glass panels in a modern, art-deco style. Clopay’s new and improved collection will make you wonder why you hadn’t thought of a garage door update sooner.

Modern, Sleek Design

Modern garage door designs opt for large windows, sleek lines, and bold color choices. They offer layers of steel construction to keep your home safe and secure, without sacrificing fashion. Why not continue the open, airy theme of your home in your garage? Operable glass doors or wide French doors allow homeowners to combine the benefits of the indoors and outdoors. The versatility of the aluminum and glass designs available today give you a wide range of options, so you can find one that matches your home’s style and architecture.

Contemporary Colors

Instead of hoping your white-washed garage door will simply fade into the background when people look at your home from the road, you can make it stand out from the crowd. Contemporary colors are an easy way to upgrade your garage door and turn it into a beautiful focal point. Today’s savviest homeowners are opting for bold colors, such as olive or dark red, to make their garage doors pop. Upgrading from the standard white or tan can make you a neighborhood trendsetter and boost curb appeal.


Faux Wooden Doors

One upgrade that won’t go out of style anytime soon is opting for wooden garage doors. Wooden doors offer an attractive and secure alternative to typical doors, and make a bold yet timeless statement. Wooden doors add a level of sophistication to your home, and increase your home’s value. Instead of investing in expensive real wood that may rot, crack, or warp, opt for faux wood. Faux wood is constructed to look like the real thing, but provides more durability.
