Add a Little Color

A new coat of paint makes everything look better. Instead of doubling down on another shade of eggshell or brown, opt for something with a bit more pizazz. Coral, mint green, or light blue may seem a bit intimidating at first, but them a chance and one of those colors is sure to brighten your, and possibly a potential buyer’s, day.

If you’re looking to get even more adventurous, you might even consider our Envy™ Model 956. This modern garage door style combines an aluminum base with glass paneling to instantly up the sleekness of your home.  


Before You Do Anything, Clean

We’re not just talking about taking a broom and sweeping away the cobwebs and dust around the edges of your garage door – we’re talking about giving it a true deep cleaning.

Consider renting a power washer. It’s amazing what a simple high-powered stream of water can do. When used correctly, it removes dirt and grime that can build up over the seasons leaving certain parts of your home (i.e. your garage door) looking dull. Blasting it with the power washer will not only leave it sparkling clean, but it also makes it easier to paint and upgrade.
