Garage doors can have a huge impact on curb appeal, especially if they are visible from the street. Ironically, the largest moving part on many homes is the one item given the least amount of thought.

Since a garage door is such a large feature of the exterior, new and replacement doors should stay true to a home’s style and era. Choices to be made depend on where the garage is located and how you plan to use the space; you’ll decide on construction type and material, insulation, and of course the fun part: design and accessories. Having a basic understanding before you contact a professional garage door installer will make it easier to select a door that meets your needs, fits your budget, and improves your home’s curb appeal.
