In the 1950’s most Americans entered their home through the back or front doors. If a home had a garage it was a detached, single-car garage located at the end of the driveway behind, or beside the home. If it was raining you got wet going from the car to the house unless you were fortunate to have a covered breezeway between the home and the garage.
Fast forward to today’s garages. Two to three bays integrated into the home design and for most of us, the primary entrance. At the touch of a button we enter covered and protected from wind, rain, sleet, or snow. Most of our friends and family come through the garage to enter the home. The front door is reserved for first timer’s, UPS, FedEx, or the annual onslaught of Trick or Treater’s.
Garage doors can add or detract from home value because they are now a major part of the home exterior. Real estate agents talk about “curb appeal,” and today’s high quality, color and design complimentary garage doors add as much if not more value than the front door. This “ain’t your parents,” garage door!
The garage doors of today are the result of innovation and intentional manufacturing aimed at setting your house apart. Whether it’s function, safety, energy efficient insulation, quiet operating doors/openers, or creative design, today’s doors are leaps ahead of their predecessors.
Today, garage doors can be integrated into smart home systems that do everything from interior creature comforts to exterior security. Today’s smart units can record the garage temperature, and be remotely opened, or closed on your smartphone. Virtual control is at your fingertips.
