Thinking about adding windows to your current garage door?garage door windows

Are you replacing your garage door completely and want to upgrade to a door with windows?

Here’s a few things to consider before you make your purchase!

 

First thing you need to do is to determine why you want garage door windows?  If you’re looking to add more natural light to your garage, then consider not including a design on your garage door windows. These clear, plain windows are very clean cut looking and will give you the most light for your money. If you’re strictly adding windows to update the curb appeal of your home, then make sure you are matching the garage door window design to your front entry door and current house windows. This is a big step that most people overlook. You garage door is the biggest opening in your home and attracts the most eyes, you want to make sure your garage door windows tie into the rest of your house.

Next up you should be deciding on the quality of your garage door windows. If you’re adding windows for purely decorative reason, then regular glass garage door windows will work great! If you want windows but live in an area that is prone to hurricanes or storms, you should consider upgrading to impact resistant windows. These windows are able to take a hit from a 2×4 at 150mph without breaking! Perfect for homes on the coast! If you’re worried about energy efficiency, consider putting in insulated windows so you don’t overheat your garage. If an insulated garage door window isn’t in your budget, consider tinting your windows. This comes with the added bonus of not allowing anyone to be able to see into your windows.

    It is good to know that if you want to add more natural light to your garage, garage door windows are a good choice for you. I like what was said about how these windows will give you the most light for your money. Something to consider would be to install a garage door that has desired windows and that is the color of your front door to enhance the curb appeal of your home.
