5 Ways the Right Door Boosts Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Overhead Door CompanyInstalling a handmade Grand Timber garage door is one of the best things you can do to enhance the curb appeal of your home. Replacing your old door with a new Grand Timber door will also make a significant difference in your home’s value.
In many cases, your garage door makes up about a third of the front of your home, so if you’re interested in making a good impression with your friends, neighbors and the people who drive by your house, it’s important to have a door that matches the style of your home.

There’s more to consider than just the aesthetics. A high-quality, handmade wood door will last for 30 years or more, and it saves you money on your heating and cooling costs. If you decide to sell your home, a top-of-the-line garage door will be a critical tool in attracting buyers.

“First impressions are everything in home buying,” says Aaron Hall, lead residential installer with Overhead Door Company of Northern Colorado. “A Grand Timber door gives you a definite bump in the equity of your home.” Hall, who has been with Overhead Door for five years, says he installs two or three Grand Timber doors a week, most of them made of cedar or alder. He notes several advantages of having a handmade Grand Timber door installed by the trained professionals at Overhead Door.

They Are Built to Last

Wood doors will maintain their durability for three decades or longer.

“A Grand Timber garage door is sturdier than a standard garage door, and they are built to last,” Hall says.

They Will Help You Save on Your Energy Bills

The insulation value provided by a wood door will keep your garage – and, hence, your house – cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

They Will Maintain Their Natural Beauty

A wood door will enhance the beauty of your home immediately and for years to come. A custom garage door, built and installed by the professionals at Overhead Door of Northern Colorado, will continue to be the centerpiece of the front of your home for decades.
“Most people are drawn to the fact that it’s solid wood,” Hall says. “It gives your home that rustic, ‘mountainy’ look.”

They Will Increase the Value of Your Home

A top-of-the-line wood garage door will give you an excellent return on your investment. If you put your home on the market, it will be worth more with a Grand Timber garage door than with a standard door – and will probably sell quicker as well.

Your Neighbors Will Be Impressed

OK. Maybe that’s not really an important reason to replace your standard garage door with a custom-made Grand Timber door. But it might make you feel a little better to have someone knock on your front door and ask: “Where did you get your door?”
