If you’ve ever watched a home improvement show, you’ll likely know that the exterior of your home is pretty darn important. Not only do you have to keep everything in good shape because of HOA covenants, but the exterior is also the first impression that anyone gets of your home. Whether you’re trying to sell your home soon or not, a well-maintained exterior adds curb appeal and value to your home. 

What many homeowners don’t realize is that one of the single most impactful things you can do to boost curb appeal is to update or upgrade your garage doors. A new garage door is a great way to give your home a facelift without going through the hassle of repainting the whole house or redoing your landscaping. If it’s time for new garage door installation for your Queens-area home, start by calling Danibul to schedule service, and stay tuned for guidance to help you choose your new garage door. 

 

Matching Your Home’s Style

One of the most important elements of choosing a garage door, especially if you are looking to give your home a facelift, is choosing the right style. The standard stamped aluminum garage door is, well, traditional. It’s a good option to go with just about any style of home. But if you’re looking for a new garage door, take the time to look at the other options out there! Consider: 

  • Carriage style
  • Contemporary/Modern
  • Craftsman
  • Traditional Raised Panel

If you know much about different home styles, you can probably already guess which garage door styles correspond well to different homes. For example, the contemporary subset of garage doors includes sleek, minimalist designed doors that go well with homes of the same style. You will also find midcentury modern doors to match your midcentury modern home. On the other end of the spectrum, wooden carriage style garage doors are a beautiful addition to more traditional homes, especially if your home is a Victorian or craftsman style. 

There are also a range of ways the traditional raised panel garage door can be customized to match just about any home. You can choose from a variety of colors for that personalized feel, but there are also options with gallery windows, faux door handles, and other accents. If you’re not sure which style works best for your home, start by connecting with your local garage door company for experienced guidance. We can help you find the right garage door for your style, and help you stick to your budget. 

 

Adding Insulation

If you use your garage for something more than just parking your cars, or if you want to boost your home’s energy efficiency, it’s worth looking into garage doors with insulation. An insulated garage door can be especially valuable here in Queens, given how cold our winters get — but this will also help keep your garage cooler in the summer. Since most garages aren’t connected to the home’s HVAC system, an insulated garage door can make a big difference. Whether your garage is a hobby/work space or you have temperature-sensitive things to store, insulated garage doors help keep your garage temperate all year. Depending on your needs, you’ll want to pay attention to the R-value of the insulation. The higher the R-value, the more insulating it will be. Your local garage door installation team can guide you through this process too, so give us a call to learn more!

Finding the Best Return on Investment

As you may have seen on various home improvement shows, remodeling your home can be very valuable — or you could barely break even. Some renovation options are going to increase the overall value of your home more than others. When you call for new garage door installation, we want to make sure you’re getting the best return for your investment. The great news is that new garage door installation consistently offers one of the most valuable returns on investment of any home improvement.
