Depending on the exterior and landscape of your home, garage doors can greatly complement the overall look of your property. When you invest in a home, updating the garage doors significantly increases the value of the property. In fact, according to the Remodeling 2018 Cost vs. Value Report, replacing the garage doors is a comparatively cheap way to increase the value of your home. By replacing garage doors, 98.3% of the cost was recouped for survey participants in 2018. To compare, a master suite addition provided a 48.3% return.
The garage often gives the first impression of a home. Modern garages also double as the main entrance, meaning homeowners should take pride in their dwelling’s entry point. There are endless options for attractive garage doors with design and material options, including real wood and faux wood.
Homeowners love the look of real wood garage doors, but real wood is both costly and shows the test of time and elements. Wind, rain, snow, and sun can make real wood garage doors look weathered with time. The stain will lighten, the wood will start to splinter, and without restoring the doors every few years, wooden garage doors will start to lose their authenticity.
- Resanding the panels
- Restaining or painting
- Resealing any cracks or compromises
Installing true wooden doors will also likely take more time, incurring higher labor costs. Wooden garage doors are often custom-made which also take time to deliver, meaning it may be a while before the project is finished. If you want to invest in your home, but wood is not a viable option, consider faux wood garage doors.
Faux wood garage doors, also called wood-look doors, are made with steel or aluminum with a faux wood overlay. They look like the real thing, are a fraction of the price, lightweight, and low maintenance. Faux wood garage door overlay is made to look like true wood with intricate graining and knots. It’s hard to even tell the difference!
Other reasons for wood-look garage doors include:
- Easy to Clean: steel garage doors are easy to wipe down after a storm that may splash mud, dirt, and grease.
- Safe from Warping and Cracking: because metal doors cannot absorb water, they are safe from rot, mold, or swelling.
- Highly Durable: though metal doors are more prone to dents and scratches than real wooden doors, they are more durable.
- Easy to Install: faux wood grain garage doors are lightweight, making them easier and faster to install, which helps lower costs.
At Thompson Garage Doors, our faux wood grain garage doors are perfect for classic carriage houses, providing curb appeal for the guest house above your garage. Originally buildings that held the manor’s carriages, carriage houses are now typically detached structures that double as a living space and a garage. Carriage houses can typically house two to three cars or more with a one-bedroom, one-bath studio or larger living space up above. To make your carriage house really stand out, consider faux wood garage doors to add value to your home.
We also install faux wood garage doors on residential and commercial doors. Your garage doors don’t have to be paneled, either. We offer contemporary flush panels to give your home a modern look. Flush panels are made of steel and can be grooved or smooth. With a wooden overlay over flush panels, your garage doors can be stylish and make your home the envy of the block. Contemporary garage doors can significantly change the look of your property and in turn, help resale appraisals.
