    new garage door openers

    Our customer, Penny, just bought a new house. The house is a fixer upper so she has a lot of projects on her to-do list!

    The first exterior project she wanted to tackle was updating the older garage doors that came with the house. The garage door openers as well were old, noisy and just in need of replacement after many years. 

    The other problem with her garage doors, which is why she wanted to tackle this project first, was that the existing doors are not only rusty, but not insulated. Penny works out in a part of her garage, so she wanted the space to have some temperature control in summer and winter.

    After putting together a budget, and then looking at her options within her budget for new garage doors and new garage door openers, she decided on these two overhead garage doors. They are 25 gauge doors and include PVC insulation for excellent weather control.

    We also installed two brand new LiftMaster belt drive openers. Not only are these garage door openers much quieter than the old chain drives she had, but they have a battery backup, WiFi abilities so she can open and close the doors from a smartphone app, and settings to ensure the door is secure when she is home and away.

    The new doors are beautiful!

    Penny also opted for the top panel with windows. Not only does this make the curb appeal stand out, but it adds an element of natural light as well. Penny can have her doors open when she is working out or using the garage, but can also keep them closed without sacrificing natural light inside the garage.

    Penny is very happy with her new garage doors and is working on some more projects inside on her new home!

     

    Our latest project is a beauty! This homeowner has lived in her home for over 30 years and was finally ready to retire and downsize. That meant getting her home ready to put on the market. 

    Her home’s exterior hadn’t been updated since she bought the home decades ago. In addition to repainting the exterior, she wanted to put in new, more updated garage doors as well. While she was at it, she wanted to upgrade the garage door openers as well. They were original to the home! 

    Below you can see the old doors and paint color. 

    The home’s exterior while old and out of style, it is full of beautiful big windows. 


    When looking for new garage doors to choose for installation, we ended up picking the Clopay t52 model. It included plain windows throughout the top panel. This was a great choice to compliment the large amount of windows in the front of the home. 

    We also installed new openers in her two car and single car garage door. She chose LiftMaster 8065 chain drive openers. Both are 1/2HP and is a great choice for this home. Affordable and durable! 

    After installation, here is what the house looked like. She wanted to wait for the doors to be finished before she had the home painted.

    The doors are already such a huge improvement to the curb appeal of her home. But the final step in getting this home ready for going on the market: fresh, modern paint!

    The final result is just stunning.

    This home went on the market soon after and sold within 2 weeks! Never underestimate the power of a facelift for your home, whether you are selling or not. Investing about $5,000 with new doors, new openers and new paint can add 3x this to your home’s list price.
