Garage Doors to Enhance Curb Appeal

Garage Doors to Enhance Curb Appeal

Your garage takes up a lot of visual real estate. If your garage doors are weathered, in poor shape, or clash with the style of your home, then a garage door replacement may be in order. It can significantly enhance your home’s curb appeal and make it more attractive to prospective buyers. Many homeowners also choose to upgrade the front door at the same time to achieve the maximum effect.

It’s best to match your garage door to the style of your home. Look for a door that matches your architecture, materials, and colours. Match up a modern home with a sleek glass-paned garage door. Choose an estate-style door for your manor or select from a wide range of traditional, colonial, rustic, or craftsman-style doors.

At Fasada, we have a variety of garage door models available, and our expert designers will help you to determine what suits your house best. For additional design support, connect with Garaga’s Design Centre where you can upload an image of your home and compare different styles.

  • Should you paint your garage door to match your front door?
  • What about your garage door matching your shutters?

Replacement Doors

Whether replacing both doors or just the garage door, one of the most challenging decisions involves colour and determining whether you want matching garage and entry doors.

Our Fasada design experts suggest the front door and garage door match, especially if they face the street. This can visually enhance the home and create a welcoming appearance.

Matching Your Entry Door to Your Garage Door 

If you’re replacing your front door and garage door at different times or purchasing them from different brands, you’ll have to mix and match various styles to find a matching pair. Fasada carries a great selection of Trubilt Entry Doors as well as Mastergrain Front Doors

Tips to help match your entry door to your garage door: 

Architecture – Look at the architectural style of your home. Is it cape cod, modern, or country style? You could select a rustic pair to complement your farmhouse-style home or a classic style.

Materials – Exterior doors come in a range of materials. Some offer strength and durability, while others add a design element.

  • Wood: Offers natural beauty and charm — ideal for mild climates. 
  • Steel: Lightweight, durable, and easy to maintain in any climate. 
  • Fiberglass: Looks like natural wood for a fraction of the price — ideal for hot and humid climates with low wind. 
  • Glass: Creates a polished and modern design that works best in a mild climate without wind or hail. 

Choosing doors with similar materials ensure they match each other and accent your home. You could also coordinate matching hardware for the handles and doorknobs or look for doors with similar panel shapes and designs. 

Make a Statement

Because of the garage door size, you can maximize the opportunity to personalize the look of your home. It can also provide a welcome contrast if a home has an otherwise “ordinary exterior.
