Add Style to Your Home with a Custom Garage Door

Add Style to Your Home with a Custom Garage Door

Out of necessity, most garages face the street and become more of a focal point to the home design than people normally would want. Fortunately, there is a solution. You can add style to your home with a custom garage door that matches the unique characteristics of your home and brightens the interior space of your garage.

At Custom Door & Gate, we’ve been installing and repairing garage doors in the Raleigh, Fayetteville and Greenville areas since 1989. We’ve worked with hundreds of home owners and builders to add curb appeal to an area of the home that is typically more an eyesore than point of pride.

Take for example these before and after pictures that show just how much life can be added to your home simply by choosing the right door for your home.

Improve the Look of Your Home with a Custom Garage Door

Spring is the perfect time to spruce up the appearance of your home. Improve the look of your home with a custom garage door. The arrival of the warm weather has neighbors out walking and spending more time together outdoors. While most of the attention is on the emerging flowers and the prevention of weeds, it’s also a great time to add some curb appeal to the appearance of your home.

A simple and effective way to improve the look of your home is with a custom garage door. A custom garage door not only improves the look of your home for the whole year, it also adds value.

Your garage door makes a statement about you and your home. If you live in one of the many planned subdivisions common to the Raleigh, Fayetteville and Greenville areas, there’s a good chance your home was built with the builders choice of standard, low cost garage doors. Possibly the same door used on every house in your neighborhood.

At Custom Door & Gate, we can help you add enduring value and interest to your home with a new custom garage door. Take for example this custom garage door recently installed in Raleigh. Not only does it add character to the home, it provides valuable light and greater insulation to a critical area of the home.

Canyon Ridge Installation Showcases Clopay garage doors

The excitement of building a new home, and the level of expectation in seeing your dream come to life is something that everyone hopes to experience at least once in their lifetime. The list of design selections can be overwhelming, and in the back of your mind you hope that everything comes together; the shingles complement the brick which complements the shutters which complements the trim color.

Imagine your disappointment if, after all was said and done, you were unhappy with the final product. That’s exactly what happened to a new homeowner in Raleigh. The builder installed a plain pan garage door as part of their package deal and the owner was horrified. Because the home had a double front-entry garage, the impact was immediate.

Thankfully, Custom Door & Gate offers the full line of Clopay garage doors, allowing added versatility and the ability to further complement the exterior facade of your home. The homeowner chose two beautiful 9 x 8 Canyon Ridge insulated steel garage doors that feature Clopay’s durable Ultra-Grain® finish in Dark Oak. They also chose to use strap hinges and handles for decorative effect.

What a difference and what a gorgeous statement these beautiful garage doors make!
