In the winter, the exterior of our homes tends to lose a bit of the curb appeal that it proudly wears the rest of the year. Once the holiday lights come down, we’re left with only the physical structure of the home and the bare trees and crunchy leaves covering the lawn do little to elevate the look.
Once the domain of landscaping, outdoor lighting and exterior paint, garage doors are now included as one of the ways to elevate the exterior appeal of a home. This can be seen on blogs and through the pins and shares on social media sites where users share and covet the appeal of a beautiful set of garage doors for the exterior of a home. Some of our favorites show a before and after shot of the difference beautiful garage doors can make on a home.
Adding Curb Appeal to your Home
Besides siding, one of the quickest ways to spice up the attractiveness of the exterior of any home is through the addition of new garage doors. Continental Siding offers its exclusive Continental Siding vinyl garage doors. These doors are constructed of the same quality vinyl siding that Continental Siding applies to homes throughout the Midwest. While vinyl might not be the first material that you think of for a garage door, it really makes sense when it comes to eliminating rust, dents, wood rot, and chipping paint.
Vinyl garage doors from Continental Siding are intricately detailed with mitered wood grain and a deep raised-panel design. The 1 and 3/8 inch thick design offers a .052-inch-thick color-fast, precision-embossed vinyl skin, making it the perfect compromise between an all-wood door that could rot and a steel garage door that could rust. It’s available in a range of beautiful colors including Adobe Cream, Cape Cod Gray, Glacier White and Monterey Sand. Insulated or non-insulated window options, etched glass designs and snap-in designer lighting kits are also available.
Built to Last
No other garage door surface carries a warranty for life against rusting, peeling, flaking, cracking, corroding, abnormal weathering and discoloration. This is a garage door that we like to refer to as kid proof. If you have children or live next door to children, you know that this is a claim that few would make. Garage doors from Continental Siding are built to last and have the ability to deflect the damage that would normally be incurred from a poorly thrown football, baseball or basketball.
