How a modern garage door can improve the look of your home

Most homes built in the 1990s until now have the garage attached to the home and facing the front of the house. The size of the average garage has now grown to fit 3 cars instead of 1 or 2, which means that it now takes up nearly 30% or more of the front of your home, so an outdated or damaged overhead door can be an eyesore to your whole home.modern garage door with window inserts

If your current overhead door is an eyesore, then you’re in luck.  There are many options to chose from to make your overhead door the perfect addition to your home.  Here are a couple of options we recommend when selecting a new overhead door for your home.

  1. Insulated Overhead Doors:  Did you know that you can insulate your overhead door?  An insulated overhead door can help with heat costs, durability, and noise.  An insulated door might not help with the exterior look of your home, but it is a smart option that can have added benefits for your home.  overhead door with windows
  2. Windows: Windows are the biggest trend right now for overhead doors, and it will probably be a continuing trend for decades to come.  There are different options for windows in your overhead door like frosted glass for privacy, inserts, rounded corners, various sizes, you can even line them up vertically or horizontally.   
  3. Full-View Aluminum: A full-view aluminum overhead door is the Creme de la creme of overhead doors for those with a more modern taste.  Every panel is a beautiful piece of frosted glass that gives complete privacy but still allows in lots of natural light.  Full-view aluminum doors are our favorite overhead door from C.H.I. Overhead Doors because they are like a unique piece of art with function and beauty.
