Garage Door Trends Summer 2017
Summer brings cookouts, patio updates, planting flowers, inviting friends – and enjoying the space you’ve worked to create. We also know it happens to always be busier than we want it too. Here’s the top summer garage door trends that will help make your summer go off without a hitch.
CREATE A GREAT SPACE – Glass Garage Doors
One of the best things about summer is the cookouts, hangouts, and every other reason to be “out” in the fresh air. A lot of people are using glass garage doors to turn their garage (or sometimes shed!) into a great extra “outdoor living room” to entertain in. We’ve been really impressed with how a lot of these spaces have turned out! Some people pair their garage doors with garage door screens – another handy trend when you want to let the breeze in, but keep the bugs out. Both of these options work great for opening up a space onto your patio as well! Check out the Clopay Avante Collection to see some examples.
UPDATED LOOK AND INCREASED ROI
Another garage door trend we’ve been following is the wood door, looks-like-it-was-made-for-Chip-and-JoJo styles. We think that Clopay’s Coachman collection has pulled off that look perfectly. Not only does this add a ton of class to the look of your home, but is also increases the value so you get the most ROI for your update – so it’s basically free.
Here’s an idea we love for when you’re on the go – there’s a whole lot of options for controlling your garage door from your smartphone these days. You’ll get alerts for when your kids leave the garage door open – and you can close it from wherever you are. Pretty cool. We like Liftmaster’s MyQ – but there’s all kinds of options to meet your needs.
We love the garage door trends we’re seeing this year – because honestly they aren’t just trendy. They all provide home value or support for your lifestyle. And that’s a win no matter how you look at it. If you’re interested in any of these ideas, give us a call or visit our showroom! We’d love to help you out.
What Our Customers Are Saying:
Great. My husband thought maybe it was time for a new opener within an hour of the repair. When the repairman came he had an opener with him. He installed it. It had some features that we had not had on the old opener. He was very patient teaching me how to program the system. The opener has been working great.
