    new garage doors

    Our client, Todd, built a very large metal garage on his property to house his many vehicles. 

    The space ended up being so big, it needed commercial sized doors to complete and secure the space. We measured the opening: 10 feet wide and 14 feet high. Wow! 

    Todd wanted durable garage doors to stand up to the elements, but he also wanted a more residential look even though he needed to purchase commercial type garage doors. He didn’t like the look of the commercial doors he had seen. 

    The last requirement Todd had was allowing as much light into the garage as possible. He didn’t want all glass doors, so we needed to find the right model that would satisfy all of these needs.

    I think we hit the nail on the head with this project. It wasn’t easy to get these doors picked out, delivered, and installed, but we did it! 

    We installed 2 beautiful 24 gauge garage doors. We were able to add a top panel of windows to allow light in without compromising the durability of the rest of the door. We also installed 2 LiftMaster 8500 jackshaft openers in order to allow for the greatest clearance for the garage. The openers install to the wall of the garage, not the ceiling which helps give more clearance.

    Looks great, right!?

    The doors will do a great job at protecting Todd’s toys inside from the elements. The top panels of windows allow a huge amount of light to come in during the day. And if you didn’t know just how big the doors were, you might not realize that they are oversized. They look just like the common residential style garage doors you see on homes all over.

    Todd is so happy to have beautiful doors, with natural light, that function for his unique space!

    We received a call from Kevin and Whitney to come and inspect their garage door system.

    What we found when we arrived as this:

    A broken garage door opener. A tension cable that broke. Plus, two of the garage door rollers came off as well.

     

    They had both wanted to upgrade their garage doors for a while. Now that their opener and cables broke, they figured it was a good time to replace the doors and their opener.

    After deciding what kind of style door they wanted and looking through some photos, they landed on these First United Door 325 model with carriage door stamp.

    The UDT door is a steel-backed garage door. Steel garage doors are low maintenance and strong, which means they last a long time, for little investment on their upkeep! The Universal series by 1st UDT are known for their quality and longevity.

    They chose to add Stockton windows and decorative hardware to really complete the upgraded look.

    Since we also had to replace the garage door opener since that had broken, Kevin and Whitney decided to go with the tried and true LiftMaster 8550 belt drive opener. Belt drive garage door openers are more expensive than chain and screw drive openers, but they require no maintenance! So they pay for themselves over time. They are also very quiet! The LiftMaster 8550 model also has extra security features including WiFI so you can control the door from a smartphone or tablet, and a battery backup. In case of a power outage, the door will still open and close!

      

    The new openers looks great with their new doors!

    We also installed brand new rollers, a new cable, and two new springs.
    This garage door system got a complete upgrade! The garage and openers are top quality, low maintenance and will last for years. Plus, the carriage house look they went for is timeless and classic. The doors and the design will stand the test of time, and are a great boost to the home’s value and curb appeal!

     

    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.
