Let’s talk doors, garage doors. I suppose most people wouldn’t give much thought to them but as they take up such a large part of your house it is the most noticeable part of the façade. Choosing the right garage door for your home is like getting a facelift. It can instantly improve the aesthetic appeal of the house and therefore increase the resell value.
There are several things you need to consider when looking to purchase a garage door. There are of course the more obvious things like what mechanism should you choose (up and over, roller door, side hinged or round the corner), the type of material (wooden, aluminium, steel or fiberglass), the size, weatherproofing and the insulation. A less obvious thing to consider is the current design of your house and how you want it to be seen. Do you have a Tudor style home, a Victorian or a new build? All these things will need to be considered as the garage door that you finally decide on will have an effect on the image of your home. After all how often do you buy a garage door? If chosen correctly maybe only once or twice in a lifetime.
