3 Top Garage Door Styles with Powerful Curb Appeal
National Curb Appeal Month in August is the ideal time to re-evaluate your home’s garage door. For properties where the garage door faces the street, it’s even more important to make sure that the garage door enhances the overall exterior look of your house.
Often the most used door in the home each day, the garage door demands special attention. And according to the 2020 Cost Versus Value Study, adding a new garage door has a higher return on investment than siding, window, entry doors, or roof replacements.
“At a strong 94.5 percent recoup value, a garage door replacement can add not only to your home’s curb appeal, but also to its value. To put it plainly, for every $1000 you invest in a garage door, $945 of that is added to the value of your home.”
Three Stylish Stand-outs
Popular nationwide, carriage house style garage doors draw strong attention to a home. The American Tradition™ Series from Haas Door replicates handcrafted wooden carriage house styles into durable steel garage doors. Accented with wrought iron hardware, overlay boards and specialty glass windows, these appealing garage doors come in a variety of woodgrain and solid color options. Overlay boards can match the color of the door or accent it in a different color.
It’s all about the glass with Residential Aluminum 360 (RA36) garage doors. Wide-open glass panes maximize the flow of light, bringing a modern, contemporary look to a home exterior. Made with rus (and corrosion) free commercial grade aluminum, each hand-crafted garage door comes in 26 standard options of powder-coated woodgrain, anodized colors or standard painted colors. Custom colors are also available. Insulated and non-insulated glass options allow you to select anything from total privacy to complete flow of sunlight into the garage.
For homeowners in rough weather areas of the country, the Insulated Aluminum 5000 Series provides both style and security. Constructed of long-lasting and corrosion-resistant aluminum, the 5000 Series doors feature a durable, weather-resistant Trinar® paint finish. More than 40 insulated and non-insulated window options allow you to select the window style best suited for your home exterior. Whether it’s Decorative Glass (with Modern Craft, Emerald and Prairieview styles) or SelectView, where you build your own window pattern, Haas Door allows you to design the style of garage door that complements your home.
