Innovative Garage Door Ideas That Will Have Your Neighbors Talking

Innovative Garage Door Ideas That Will Have Your Neighbors Talking

Garage doors are generally pretty standard fare. The tried and tested designs of aluminum or steel garage doors can be seen all over the country, and they do the job well. But why should we stick to these universal garage door ideas? Your garage door takes up a large portion of the front of your home, so don’t you want it to be something that will grab the attention of passers-by and visitors?

If you’re ready to revamp your garage door, here are a few innovative ideas to get your neighbors talking.

Glass garage doors

Rather than the typical steel or aluminum garage doors you see on every street, a glass garage door can add an extra touch of sophistication and intrigue. As well as the aesthetic appeal, you have the extra benefit of letting light into your garage during the day, which is good if you tend to spend time in there. Translucent glass can give you privacy and conceal any valuables in your garage, too. These doors are typically supported by a metal frame, so they are still strong enough to last.

Garage doors for your house

Think outside of the box and use a garage door for something other than your garage. Replacing part of an exterior wall of your house with a garage door can really add interest. A glass garage door is the perfect choice for this because it will also let light into the room. This will serve as an additional way in and out of your house, making it perfect for leading onto your backyard from a conservatory or “man cave,” for example.

Carriage house doors

While glass garage doors are a way to add a modern appeal to the front of your home, installing carriage house-style garage doors can provide a more traditional, vintage appearance. Making your garage look like an old-fashioned farmhouse, carriage house doors look like they’ll open up like a swinging gate but can actually open upwards just like any modern garage door.

Wooden doors

Garage doors made from wood are a little more common than glass garage doors, but they still provide a different appeal than the traditional steel doors. Different types of wood can be used and stained a variety of colors to create the look you want for the front of your home.

If you’re in the market for a new garage door, stop and think about these different designs to make your home impress anyone who sees it. For garage door installation in North Carolina, we can help you out – just get in touch with Carolina Garage Door.

Selling or Not, It Pays to Perk Up Where You Park!

Selling or Not, It Pays to Perk Up Where You Park!

Getting a new garage door is a great way of improving the resale value of your home, but that’s not the only benefit. Even if you’re not planning on selling your house, then replacing your garage door is a solid investment. Here are some of the main reasons why.

Improve the look of your home

If you’re coming home to the same view every day, you want to make sure that it is one you like the sight of. Your garage door is a large part of the front of your home, which is why it has such an impact on curb appeal when selling your house. If your garage door is old or if you’re not keen on the style of it, then this will really affect how you see your home and how it makes you feel. Updating your garage door to something you really like the look of can make a huge difference.

Make your home more energy efficient

Old garage doors tend to be less energy efficient and have problems like letting drafts into your garage. This makes it more difficult to heat your garage or keep it cool in the summer, which leads to rising energy bills. If your garage is attached to your home, then this matters even more. New garage doors are well-insulated and more energy efficient.

Add convenience to your day

New garage doors can come with a variety of smart features, like the ability to open and close your garage door from your smartphone, meaning you don’t even have to leave your car to do it. It might not sound like much, but the small amount of time you can save through these kinds of features will save you time every day and make things more convenient for you.

Improve the safety of your home

New garage doors also come with better safety features, making it much more difficult for a potential intruder to break into your garage and your home. New technologies and more stringent safety standards have made garage doors more secure and better able to protect your home and family by keeping intruders out.

Are you ready for a new garage door? Call us for expert garage door installation in North Carolina, around Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville, whether you’re selling your home or not.

A Crash Course in Garage Door Openers

A Crash Course in Garage Door Openers

Are you confused by all the different types of garage door openers out there? If you’re looking for a new garage door opener, read on to learn more about them and what to look for when you’re browsing through them

Different types of garage door openers

Traditionally, there are three different types of electronic garage door openers – chain-driven, belt-driven, and screw-driven. Chain-driven garage door openers are perhaps the most commonly found. They operate using a metal chain to open and close the door when it is activated.

A belt-driven opener replaces this metal chain with a rubber belt. These are a little more expensive but tend to last longer as the metal chain can wear down quicker as it rubs against the metal tracks. A belt-driven opener also produces less noise than the chain, so it is a better option if your garage is attached to your home.

Screw-driven openers tend to be even quieter than belt openers, operating using a threaded steel rod. With fewer moving parts involved in the system, less maintenance is generally required for this type of opener, but the downside is that they operate slower than the others. We now also have more options for garage door openers using new technologies, including the direct-drive and DC-powered openers that can work more efficiently and quietly.

Features to look for

When you’re choosing your new garage door opener, here are some key features to look for:

  • Safety features – Garage doors can be dangerous when not installed or maintained properly. To avoid accidents, a lot of garage door openers come with certain safety features. Your door should be able to stop itself from closing if it detects something in its path, and an auto-reverse feature can make it go back in the opposite direction if it does detect or come into contact with something.
  • Smart controls – Garage door openers can now be equipped with Wi-Fi or another kind of technology that allows you to operate your garage door from a smartphone app. This can be extremely convenient and stops you from worrying about remembering your keys or replacing the batteries in your remote control.
  • Horsepower – It is important that you know what horsepower your garage door opener needs. The standard is ½ horsepower but if your garage door is larger and heavier, then it may need a ¾ horsepower opener or even 1 horsepower. The extra weight that comes from insulating your garage door may mean you need a ¾ horsepower opener.

If you need to buy a new garage door opener, have it installed, or need garage door repair for your current opener, then contact us for services around the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina, including Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville.

Which Is Best? Single or Double Garage Door?

Which Is Best? Single or Double Garage Door?

If you’re designing a new garage or replacing your garage door, then size matters. Specifically, the size of your garage door. In your design planning, you may have come across doors of different sizes – single garage doors and double garage doors. A single garage door generally has maximum dimensions of 10 x 7 feet, while a double garage door can measure as much as 16 x 7 feet.

So, how do you know what you need for your garage?

Determining if a single garage door is enough

There are a few things to consider when deciding if a single garage door is right for your garage. First of all, what do you use your garage for? If you don’t use your garage for storing a vehicle, then a single garage door will probably be enough.

If you’re parking a single car in your garage, then a single will be fine in most cases, unless you have a large car like an SUV. You want to make sure there’s plenty of room to get out on either side of the car, so measure up your car against the garage door to determine if you’ll need more room than a single door provides.

If you park two or more vehicles in your garage, then you will definitely need more than a single garage door.

Two single doors vs. one double door

If you’ve decided that a single garage door won’t cut it, then you have two choices – a double garage door or two single garage doors. Part of this decision will come down to aesthetics and tastes. Which design do you prefer the look of? Some designers will advise that a large, double door is quite imposing and can disrupt the look of the front of your house, while two single doors look more balanced.

If you’re parking two vehicles in your garage, then they can just as easily fit through two smaller doors than one large door. However, remember to consider the size of each vehicle. Larger vehicles will fit more easily through a double garage door, giving you plenty of space to exit the vehicle and move around it in the garage.

Two single doors can also be more practical than a double door. If your double door malfunctions, then you could end up locked in or out of your garage, whereas one of two single doors malfunctioning still leaves you with one functioning door to use. Plus, two single garage doors can also be more efficient as they let in less air from outside. This means that less cold air enters your garage in the winter and less hot air in the summer.

Once you’ve decided what is right for your garage, you can call us at Carolina Garage Door for all your installation needs around Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville.

Turn your garage into a man cave for football season

 

Football season is upon us and people all around the country are making plans for viewing parties when the season starts. Your garage could be the perfect place for watching the game, so read on for our tips on how to turn your garage into a “man cave” this football season.

The screen

You don’t want to be huddled around a tiny TV to watch the game. Give the sport the justice it deserves with a large, widescreen TV or, better yet, a projector to display the game on a blank wall in your garage if you have one that’s suitable. If you don’t have enough electrical outlets in your garage for everything you need, considering having new ones added or else running long extension cables into your house if it’s feasible.

The seating

Comfort is key for viewing parties, so you should make sure that you’ve got enough comfortable seating for everyone. If you don’t want to lug your home furnishings out to the garage every time, then it’s a better idea to get sofas and chairs that live in your garage permanently. For extra comfort, recliners are obviously the way forward.

The snacks

No football game is complete without a selection of snacks and drinks to accompany it. Make sure your fridge and cupboards are well-stocked before the season starts.

The garage door

If you don’t want to take the “cave” aspect of your man cave too literally, then there are some upgrades you can make to your garage door to make the space airier and more welcoming. There are various options for garage doors that let air and light into your garage and make access easier, such as swinging or gate-style garage doors, or a screen door for the added benefit of keeping insects and debris out.

Staying warm

The weather’s going to start getting colder, so a portable heater or a permanent heating system in your garage will make your viewing parties more comfortable. You don’t want your energy bills to skyrocket though, so making sure your garage and garage door are properly insulated can help to keep the heat in and the bills down.

If you need a new garage door for your perfect viewing parties this season, contact us at Carolina Garage Door for installation services around Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville. If you’re going ahead without replacing your garage door, then a pre-season tune-up could be a good idea to make sure there are no hitches in your plan.

Glass Garage Doors

Glass Garage Doors

There are a variety of different materials that could be used to make your garage door, whether that’s at home or on commercial premises. One that is less often seen is the use of glass for garage doors. Should you choose a glass garage door? Let’s weight up some of the benefits and potential dangers to help make your mind up.

All about glass garage doors

Glass garage doors are typically made up of sections of glass panels joined together by aluminum framings. They are more commonly used by businesses, but can also be used for home garages. For example, a car dealership may use a glass garage door to allow customers to still look inside at what is on offer.

The advantages of glass garage doors

Why would you choose a sectional glass garage door over traditional, solid doors? These are some of the benefits glass garage doors have to offer.

Easier to heat in winter – If you’ve ever been in a room with big windows during summer, you know how hot they can get as the sun streams through the glass. A glass garage door will also let the sun through, which offers benefits in winter where you will notice a reduction in your energy bills as it will be easier to keep warm.

Lightweight – The combination of glass panels and aluminum, rather than steel, provides an extremely lightweight effect. This makes it much easier to open and close your garage door, allowing you to air it out in summer, too.

Durable – Glass garage doors are tough and long-lasting, able to withstand practically anything the weather can throw at it. This means they will not need repairing or replacing too regularly, as long as you keep them maintained properly.

Modern style – If you’re looking for a more modern appearance for your home or commercial garage door, then glass is a great option. It provides a nice look for the front of your home or business and can be designed in a variety of different styles.

Any disadvantages?

You should also consider the potential disadvantages of upgrading to a glass garage door. They do pose a possible security risk if people can see into your garage, especially if you are storing valuable goods. Obviously, glass is easily breakable compared to steel. You can mitigate this risk by treating the glass with an opaque film. This means that the sunlight can still get through, but prying eyes are kept at bay.

Glass garage doors may also need cleaning more regularly than solid doors if you want them to look their best.

If you want a glass garage door installed in your home or business in North Carolina, contact us today. We serve a range of areas, including Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville.

Considering a Detached Garage?

Considering a Detached Garage?

As the nation’s prosperity grew in the 1940s, it became increasingly common for families to own a car and, therefore, require a garage. Within the next decade, attached garages became a the most common entry point to a home. Now, it’s almost unheard-of to find a new home without a garage, a majority of which are attached.

It’s ingrained in many of us that detached garage doors are antiquated, but they are slowly making a comeback. Why are so many people now considering a detached garage?

Time To Replace Your Electric Garage Door Opener

Time To Replace Your Electric Garage Door Opener

The housing market has been on the rise in early months this year. Have you bought a new home recently? You may have noticed that your garage door opener is just as dated as other parts of your home, which means its time for an upgrade.

Keep Your Family Safe

Whether you park in your garage, use it as storage or activity space, or simply use it as an entrance, the garage is the main entry point to the home for about 70% of people.

Now that you’re realizing how often your family uses the garage, think about how important garage door safety is to you. Not just for security, but also keeping your family safe from harm.

Prior to 1993, door openers had only one automatic (or “mechanical”) reversal system. This system uses the pressure detected from objects or people to stop the door from closing and reverse the direction for safety.

After a string of door-related accidents involving children, U.S. and Canadian authorities added a second safety system using photo-cell safety beams. This device sends a beam of concentrated light across the path of the garage door so, if the light is broken (meaning there is someone or something obstructing the path), the door will reverse rather than close.

Reduce noise, especially if your bedroom is located over the garage

If your door opener is an older model, it may operate with a chain drive system that often causes a lot of noise. Today, most garage door openers use rubber belts (reinforced with metal fibers similar to the way car tires are made) that are proven to be much quieter. However, if your opener is still making too much noise, it could be another sign that it’s time to replace.

Today, we are talking about connected homes

In our technology-driven world, it’s expected that opening and closing your garage door can be done with a mobile devie. Chamberlain Group (LiftMaster and Craftsman) have offered this type of “remote” garage door technology MyQ since 2013. If you have a model opener from this year, you may even be able to connect it to wifi or use voice commands to open and close your garage door.

If you’re experiencing issues with your garage door opener and need a repair or replacement, give us a call today. Our experts can set you up with the best device for your budget and needs.

Garage Door Screens for Summer Entertaining

Garage Door Screens for Summer Entertaining

Summer is a great time for entertaining guests in your home and garden, but have you considered using your garage for entertaining as well? If not, then read on to find out why this is a great idea and how to make this idea work well.

Why use your garage for entertaining?

You don’t want to be stuck inside when the weather is so nice outside, but maybe you also don’t want to sit out in the dazzling sun. The garage is a great compromise between these two spaces. You get to sit in the shade while still enjoying the fresh, summer air with your garage door open. If your garage is connected to your house, then it is easy for guests to go in and out to get refreshments or go to the bathroom.

Keeping pests out

One problem with sitting outside is all of the pests, and you don’t want to be letting these into your garage and even your home while you sit in your garage entertaining guests. Garage door screens are a great solution for this. These cover the space of an open garage door, still letting in light and air while blocking pests from flying in and debris such as leaves from blowing into your garage.

There are a variety of different styles of garage doors to suit your needs, including roll up, sliding, and retractable screens. They are also available in a range of sizes, so you can find one that fits the size of your garage door. This Lifestyle Screens garage door screen is a great example of how a screen can transform your garage space into a great place for entertaining. You can see a range of different garage door screen styles online at Lowe’s.

Schedule a tune-up first

When you’re welcoming guests into your home and garage, you don’t want to find out that your garage door isn’t working properly at this very moment. So, you should check your garage door first to make sure it is opening and closing properly before you invite guests over. It is a good idea to schedule a garage door tune-up at this time to make sure everything is in good working order.

Most Common Garage Door FAQs

Our customers often come to us with questions about their garage doors, whether that’s about maintenance, repair, materials, style, or technology used to enhance garage doors. We’ve decided to compile some of the most frequently asked questions into a blog article, so maybe the answer to your burning question can be found on this page.

How long do garage doors last?

This will depend partly on the quality of the garage door, how often it is used, and how well it is maintained throughout its lifespan. The average garage door can last anywhere between 15-30 years. If you maintain it properly and arrange regular garage door tune-ups, then you can extend the lifespan of your garage door. Find out more about when it is time to replace your garage door.

How long does it take to install a new garage door?

The answer to this will vary depending on the size of the garage door and whether it is manual or electric. It can take just a few hours or anywhere up to a full day to finish installing your new garage door.

What happens to my old garage door?

If you’re having a new garage door installed, you might wonder what happens to your old one and whether you have to dispose of it yourself. Most installation teams will remove your garage door and dispose of it for you, with the aim of recycling or reusing as many parts as possible. Some companies may charge an additional fee for this service, but many do not. You can also choose to dispose of the door yourself if you want to try to sell it.

Do I need to replace my garage door for an electric one?

In most cases, you will be able to simply upgrade your manual garage door to an electric one. The mechanisms and power can be added to your garage and its door by a professional installation team. The company will be able to survey your garage to confirm whether it is suitable for an electric opener. Some older models of garage door may not be compatible with these accessories, however.
