The garage door is the face of your home and is instrumental in creating the first impression on your guests. If you are trying to sell your home, buyers will be reluctant to go inside if they are not impressed by the outside. And if the garage is your first focal point on the house when you arrive home, you may also feel less excited to go inside. A new garage door can upgrade your home’s curb appeal and bring back your excitement of pulling into the driveway.
A Cost vs. Value Report published on remodeling.hw.net in 2020 reported that garage door replacement ranked second against all home remodeling projects. In Wisconsin and the Midwest, homeowners saw 79.1% of the cost recouped. This second-place ranking beat out other curb-appeal remodeling projects of windows, doors, and even roofing. Apparently, a beautiful garage door attracts prospective home buyers faster than a new roof!
If your home is newer construction, a mid-century modern, or a contemporary design, the Modern garage door from Joe Wilde Company is an excellent fit. These doors sport straight lines often finished in warm colors to create a contemporary, chic, and upscale look to the home. Gone are the days of having only one choice of a plain, basic, white door. You now have a multitude of options that allow you to create a garage door to match your home’s style and display your personal taste.
Let’s take the Modern Steel door, for example, from the Modern line of doors offered by Joe Wilde Company. First, the door can be made up almost entirely of windows or flush with no window panel designs. The ultimate sleek, modern look is created by the shape and pattern arrangement of the window. The windows come in square or rectangle and can be configured in about a dozen different patterns. Instead of the traditional pattern of one row of windows along the top of the door, these windows can be arranged in columns along just one side of the door from top to bottom. Or you could place as many rows as you want going down the door until the entire door is window panels. You could even group two or four window panels together in the upper corners of the door to create eye-catching features. These tempered-glass windows are available single pane or double-strength insulated and come in clear, frosted, obscure, and rain designs.
Next, add decorative inserts to some of the windows, selecting from nearly a dozen designs such as the familiar arch, grille, or sunset. Choose an ornate design such as wrought iron or stick with straight lines that complete the modern look by choosing the Colonial, Prairie, or Madison inserts. The snap-in assembly makes it easy to remove the inserts to clean the window or replace them with different inserts when your preferences change.
Finally, when it comes to the color of the door, choose from a dozen standard colors, or select the custom paint option to make an exact match to your home’s paint.
