If one of your New Year’s resolutions is to give your home a facelift, don’t overlook its largest moving part: your garage door. Whether you’re selling-up or just want to keep your home looking its best, a pristine garage door helps to create that all-important first impression and can even add value to it. However, knowing where to start can be tricky. 2019 looks set to have a few types of garage door hogging the spotlight, so here’s the Garage Door and Automation Company’s guide to what’s going to be hot in the year ahead.
I Can’t Believe it’s not Wood!
While wood has an unparalleled, timeless appeal, keeping a wooden garage door in tip-top condition can be a chore. However, there are some superb alternatives that offer all the elegance and aesthetic appeal, without all the maintenance. We offer an extensive range of steel garage doors that perfectly mimic the appearance of timber, while offering extra durability, maintenance free finish and insulation up to 67 mm. For a more lightweight option, fibreglass is extremely resilient and garage doors made from this versatile material have realistic woodgrain etched into their surfaces, to further enhance their appearance.
Steel is perfect for contemporary homes, offering outstanding security, insulation and soundproofing qualities. Because steel is such an adaptable material, you’ll find it used to make all sorts of garage doors, including up-and-over garage doors, roller garage doors and more traditional swing garage doors. With a huge range of styles, finishes and colours available, you can choose the steel garage door that perfectly suits the look of your home, without any compromise on quality. Remote-operated steel garage doors are becoming ‘de rigeur’ and offer convenience and superb security. Perhaps best of all, a steel garage door will require minimal maintenance, beyond the occasional wash.
Be sure to kick off 2019 with your best foot and don’t be afraid to get in touch with us for any advice. Happy New Year!
