Garage Door Window : you will love it

The front exterior of your home is the first thing that a new visitor or prospective buyer
sees, it is your home’s first impression. And as the saying goes: “you only get one
change to make a first impression.” But with today’s design styles that place the garage
and driveway prominently, sometimes the first impression of a home is nothing but a
boring white or beige garage door with absolutely no personality or class. Changing
this can be a huge hassle, if you decide to buy a new garage door, not to mention
very expensive. Luckily, there is another option to add personality and interest to your
garage door – simulated garage door window kits. These are simulated window decals
made of durable plastic that lasts for years and look amazingly like real glass windows.

These are very classic and realistic looking. Your family, friends and neighbors will not
be able to tell that you didn’t really get a new garage door! Unlike real garage doors,
they don’t add a security weakness or additional point of entry into your garage, and
they also don’t sacrifice any of the privacy you enjoy when the garage door is closed.

Curb Appeal
The term “curb appeal” is used to describe the beauty of the house from the street and
what impression it gives to a person as they walk up to the home. In today’s world of
dominant garages, it can be difficult to add to the curb appeal of your home. These
garage door window accents will add a personal touch; make your home stand out from
your neighbors’ and give an added detail that will add curb appeal. This could be a
great addition if you’re planning on selling your home, or if you are planning to stay and
enjoy this improvement for years to come.

These garage door window accents add a big impact for a really affordable price.
Adding a new garage door would not only be difficult, but also very expensive. This kit
gives a new-door look and feel to your current garage door without all the hassle and
expense of actually changing the garage door.

Easy Installation
Using standard tools, you’ll be able to install these garage door window accents in just
a few easy steps. A paper template is included to help guide you through a simple
installation. They can even be painted for a completely customizable look. This is one
of the easiest and quickest home improvement projects that will have a huge impact on
the look of your home.

DIY Garage Door Insulation Kits

Anyone who spends a lot of time in their garage knows that it’s not much better, and

really sometimes worse, than standing around outside. This means you are miserably
hot in the summer and freezing in the winter. If you use your garage as a workroom,
as many people do, this means that you have to work in uncomfortable temperatures
or add expensive and sometimes unsafe heaters and portable air-conditioning units to
your garage to make the temperatures bearable. And you still have to grin and bear the
annoyance of noises from the road, and the worry that your neighbors may complain
about the noises made as you use your power tools. All of this makes it harder to get
your work done.

The biggest reason for this discomfort and wide range of temperature spikes is because
of the flimsy metal garage door that provides no insulation and leaves one entire wall
of the room basically exposed to the elements. Luckily, there is an affordable and
easy way to make your garage more comfortable year-round – by installing garage
door insulation. Homeowners can purchase garage door insulation kits and install
them quickly and easily. This article gives two examples of high-quality garage door
insulation kits that you can buy to insulate your garage door.

Owens-Corning Garage Door Insulation Kit
The Owens-Corning garage door insulation kit is ideal for a single-car garage door up
to 9-feet wide. The panels fit easily into the exposed garage door channels, adding
thermal protection up to five times better than the door itself, and a 20% noise level
reduction. Installation of these garage door insulation kits should take less than hour.
The only tools you’ll need to complete the installation are a tape measure, straight edge,
a good utility knife, and a marker, so you’ll be enjoying your new garage door insulation
in no time.

Atlas EPS Matador Garage Door Insulation Universal Kit
The Matador Universal garage door insulation kit is another good option for DIY garage
door insulation kits. It works for 9 foot or 8 foot doors. It also makes the inside of your
garage and even the interior of your home more quiet. The insulation works to maintain
a more stable temperature, and can also help to keep your heating and cooling costs
lower. The installation is simple and requires no tools. It can be done in less than an
hour – allowing you to get back to the work you’ve been wanting to do in your nice,
comfortable garage.
