3 Easy Ways to Make Over Your Garage Door, Creston-Bigfork, Montana

What does your garage door say about your home? If your door looks old, faded, or damaged, it might be making your place look the same way. Fortunately, you can improve your curb appeal by making a few simple changes this weekend. Here are three easy ways to give your garage door a makeover. 

Replace the Lighting

Sometimes all a garage door needs to look better is a few updated lighting fixtures alongside the exterior. In addition to illuminating your driveway in the evening, the right lighting sconces can tie your garage door design into the rest of your home’s exterior. When you choose replacement lighting, look for newer versions that use energy-efficient LED lighting and that turn off and on according to the conditions outside. 

Add Some Hardware

Additions like metal straps and handles can make your garage door look more finished while breaking up large, boring panels. Garage door hardware is typically designed to be attached to the exterior of your garage door with small screws, which means anyone with a drill, a measuring tape, and a little free time can handle the task.     

Give It a Fresh Coat of Paint

After years of being subjected to the weather, your garage door can start to look faded and grimy. If spraying your garage door off doesn’t improve its appearance, consider giving it a fresh coat of paint. To ensure an even paint job that won’t interfere with the functionality of your door, place a line of tape in between each garage panel joint and always use a high-quality primer.
