Increasing Curb Appeal: It’s time to upgrade your garage door

In both old and new houses, garage door designs are overlooked and often only offer functionality and the most basic appearances or designs — even when they protrude prominently from the house, or take up a substantial amount of space. But imagine if you transformed this common, typically unimpressive, exterior feature into something eye-catching and aesthetically appealing, making your home stand out from the others!

C&M Garage Doors believe your garage door plays a significant role in the visual appeal of your property and that an upgrade offers a range of benefits.

Here are some of our reasons why we think a garage door upgrade is a worthwhile investment.

Enhanced aesthetics

A new garage door can completely transform the look of the exterior of your house. Think about how amazing it looks and feels when you give your house a fresh coat of paint. Upgrading your garage can have the same effect, making people stop and take notice of your new, aesthetically-pleasing garage door and leaving you with a sense of satisfaction and house pride.

Increased property value

A well-designed and high-quality upgrade to your garage door can also increase the value of your property. Not only is it a practical and visually appealing improvement that potential buyers will appreciate, but it is also an affordable option if an entire renovation is out of your budget.

Improved Insulation

Many modern garage doors are more energy-efficient and better insulated than older models. As a result, upgrading to a well-insulated garage door can improve the energy efficiency of your home, which can lead to lower energy bills and greater comfort overall.

Enhanced Security

Newer garage doors often come with advanced security features, such as rolling code technology and smartphone integration. These features not only improve security, but also add to your convenience and peace of mind. Our trusted supplier B&D Garage Doors offer garage doors that lock unlike most Australian garage doors. This provides peace of mind, protecting you and your personal belongings with extra security.

Reduced Maintenance

Older garage doors may require more frequent maintenance and repairs, so upgrading to a newer model can save you time and money in the long run, by reducing maintenance needs and the cost of constantly requiring someone to service your door. Once we install your new garage door we recommend servicing every 12 months.

Also consider

If you decide to go ahead with upgrading your garage door, it’s also a good idea to consider the following: 

Assess Your Needs

Determine what type of garage door best suits your home’s style, climate and your budget. Insulated doors are a good choice if you’re looking to improve energy efficiency, while different materials like aluminium, timber, Colorbond Steel, offer varying levels of durability and aesthetics.

Choose a Style

Select a garage door style that complements your home’s architecture and colour scheme. Consider factors such as panel design, window options and decorative hardware. C&M have a huge variety of garage door styles, colours and materials, to match your home’s architectural design, so give us a call to discuss your options.
