Add Windows to Your Garage Door to Enhance the Look and Value of Your Home
Many homeowners will often dream of the upgrades or renovations that they would like to make to either the interior or the exterior of their home. In some cases, the changes may be intended to modernize or brighten living space, while in other instancesthey are seen as equity investments or, in simpler terms, enhancing the curb appeal of the home.
Some of these changes may be more subtle in nature, others perhaps more elaborate, but they can all be pictured in the mind nonetheless. Unfortunately, many of these ideas and plans can be quashed for reasons of time, scope, and/or money; as a result, those visuals remain just that – mental images that linger out-of-reach or are filed away under the heading of ‘someday maybe’.
Well, there is at least one way to achieve that renovation/upgrade objective and address the issues of time, scope, and cost all in a single project – the installation of windows in a solid garage door. Within just a couple of days or less, homeowners can have windows installed in their garage door at a reasonable cost and instantly augment the curb appeal of their home.
There are several aesthetic and functional benefits that can be gained from upgrading an existing garage door with new windows. These would include:
- Permitting the entry of natural light into the garage
- Softening the horizontal lines of external stone/brick
- Complementing the size/shape of other front windows
- Adding architectural detail to the exterior of the home
- Presenting a warm, welcoming look versus a solid door
- Retaining privacy by using opaque or tinted glass panes
Garage door windows can be added to almost any type of solid door, although the design options might be limited based on the age, model, and/or composition of the door; and while some do-it-yourself homeowners might feel adventurous, it is highly advisable that the work be contracted to a professional garage door repair and maintenance provider such as Markham Garage Doors.
The expert technicians from Markham Garage Doors have the knowledge and expertise to complete any such upgrades without compromising the structural integrity of the door or its operation. The work would include making any needed adjustments to the tension in the garage door springs, which may be necessary as a result of altering the overall weight of the door itself.
