One of the more commonly overlooked upgrades with your home is your garage. If kerb appeal and landscaping are on your list of things to do for your home upgrades, then you should consider your garage doors. If you aren't sure how you can upgrade them while also adding to your kerb appeal, there are a few options you can consider. Here are a few of those options and what to know about each one.

Garage Door Skins

One of the latest upgrades to hit the market where garage doors are concerned are skins. The skins are heavy-duty vinyl decals that are attached to the door. They use no glue or special equipment. You can buy the skins in any design, including traditional wood door finishes or landscape images, depending on what you are looking for. The skins are removable, making them ideal for someone who is renting their home and wants to upgrade the look.

Smartphone Connection

One of the ways you can upgrade the garage door is to upgrade the opening device itself. You may have a remote controlled opener, but if your door is older, it may be a manual opening system. One upgrade you can consider is to use a smartphone garage door opener. This device can be attached to the existing garage door. It will use your smartphone as the remote. You can also put in security features to the application, allowing you set the door to open at specific hours. Some of the smartphone door openers also have a way to view the garage door remotely.

Wood Casings

If you have a durable metal door, but you just don't like the look of it, you can go with a wood casing. The wood casing can be in any style of wood grain you would like. They can also be finished to any colour you would like as well. The casings generally snap onto the current garage doors and give a snug fit. In some cases, you may need an insulation membrane to prevent water damage from humidity. The casings can be removed at any time if you no longer like the look.

These are just a few of the options available to you for upgrading garage doors. If you think any of these options would be ideal for your garage door upgrade, visit your local home improvement store.
