How to Improve the Look of Your Garage Door

How to Improve the Look of Your Garage Door

Your garage door is one of the first things that most people notice when they look at your home. Improving the look of your garage door can add to the value of your property as well as enhance the overall exterior of your home. Our experts at JB Doors have put together a few simple yet effective ways of updating the appearance of your garage door while complementing the rest of your home seamlessly.


This is perhaps the easiest and cheapest way of adding a new lease of life to an old garage door. When selecting the paint that you will use, it is important to consider the colour of your home so that the garage door does not stand out like a sore thumb. Also, make sure you choose the right type of paint for the material that your garage door is made from to avoid causing any damage. With a little planning, repainting your garage door can take as little as an hour, while the enhancing effects of your new paint job can last for several years. It’s a good idea to make sure the paint you use is weatherproof so the door remains in pristine condition for longer.

Choosing the Material

From wood to vinyl and even fibreglass, garage doors can be made from a wide range of different materials. Bear in mind that the material you choose for your garage door will affect the cost, which is an important consideration for people who are on a tight budget. It’s also important to make sure that your new door is durable so that your garage is sufficiently protected against forced entry and the door itself stays in good condition for many years to come.

The Perfect Match

The style of garage door you choose as well as the material that it is made from should blend well with the rest of your home to look like the perfect fit. It is a good idea to take photographs of the front of your home and use these photographs as reference when choosing your new garage door or planning the enhancements for the existing door.

Out with the Old, In with the New

If your garage door is particularly old and worn, it might be time to replace it. These days, garage doors are available in a wide range of different styles and designs, so it’s worth taking the time to consider the different options. With a little planning, replacing an old garage door can be easy and cost effective, and can really enhance the overall look of your home. When you are choosing your new garage door, it’s definitely worth considering adding an automatic opening device as this will mean motorists do not have to get out of their car to open the door when they want to park their vehicle inside the garage.

Here at JB Doors we offer an extensive range of garage door designs from leading manufacturers such as Hormann and Cardale, so you can find the perfect design to fit with the rest of your property. We have hundreds of garage doors to choose from, including:
