Increase Value by Enhancing the Exterior Aesthetic

Match your front door, your awnings or your columns within the exterior of your house to your garage door and your home will undoubtedly improve. Garage doors that stick out like a sore thumb, whether due to a colour mismatch or a budget-friendly material that doesn’t match the home, can make the overall exterior look cheap. Custom garage doors are an amazing option for renovators and investors, as experts like Impact Garage Doors will help you to perfectly match the exteriors. This helps to blend the garage door into an expensive-looking, desirable exterior that will enhance the overall look and sale price of your home.

Poorly made garage doors or garage doors that are wearing, will ultimately impact the security of your home and the overall value.

Not only will your home look new and expensive but it will look safe and secure as well.

Time for a New Garage Door?

Have you noticed your garage door isn’t working as smoothly as it used to? Maybe it’s no longer working at all?

Signs that your garage door may need replacing can include seized mechanisms, rust, and weather damage from rain or hail. The door may also have been damaged by a car or other form of impact.

You may also be interested in replacing your garage door to give your property a quick and easy facelift – this one simple change can do wonders for the outer appearance of your property, increasing its street view and value.

If you’ve decided to replace your garage door, you can start thinking about your options.

For example, you could take this opportunity to upgrade to a newer model with better features, or switch to an automated door for greater security.

Let’s take a look at two popular options, panel glide and roller doors.

Panel Glide Overhead – Sleek and Strong

A sleek and sophisticated choice, panel glide overhead doors use hinged rigid sections that slide overhead, to give you garage doors that are both attractive and easy to use.

The benefits of choosing panel glide garage doors include:

  • an impressive range of styles, to complement your home’s appearance
  • an impressive range of styles, to complement your home’s appearance
  • available in a variety of finishes and COLORBOND® colours
  • can be fashioned with either a wood grain or smooth texture finish
  • advanced track and roller system and accurate torsion spring balancing for easy operation
  • remote control and automation process for extra security and efficiency
  • reliable designs, requiring little maintenance
  • high quality materials built to withstand Australian temperatures and weather conditions.

Look for the Gliderol brand of panel glide doors for an excellent maker of Australian garage doors.

Roller Garage Doors – High Security and Ease of Use

Roller doors remain a popular choice due to the high level of security they offer and their ease of use.

Roller doors consist of a steel curtain that, when lifted to open, rolls up on itself at the top of the door. The roller mechanism using a spring-assisted spindle assembly allowing the door to glide open and shut with little effort.

The benefits of choosing roller doors for your garage include:

  • strong and secure to protect your home
  • less expensive than panel glide doors
  • easy to install
  • easy to operate. The process is made even easier when you add an automated solution such as the Glide-a-Code® handset.
  • available in a broad range of COLORBOND® colours.
  • low maintenance, hard wearing and strong enough to endure the worst Australian weather.

For roller doors built to operate with minimal noise and friction, look for the Gliderol® range of roller doors, manufactured in Australia from durable BlueScope steel and fitted with a reinforced bottom rail to protect your home.

Now that it’s time to replace your old door you can start getting excited about these new designs and the value they’ll add to your home and lifestyle.

Creating the Ultimate Garage Workshop

Often we underestimate the amount of space provided by the humble garage – but when you think about it, it’s quite a large proportion of your overall living space!

If you aren’t using your garage to house a car you might want to start thinking of other ways to utilise the space. Your garage could become your “room of one’s own” – a space to embrace your hobbies and interests, whether it’s doing up vintage or V8 cars, DIY woodworking, jamming guitar or drums, or getting creative with pottery or painting.

Here are some ideas to get you started on planning your ultimate man (or woman!) cave.

Organising Your Garage Space

First things first… time to get organised!

The garage can often become a neglected part of the house. We use it to store tools, unused items, storage containers full of souvenirs and unwanted gifts… in fact, it can quite easily turn into more of a junkyard than anything!

However, with a little bit of organisation your garage can become a clean, efficiently organised space where everything is relatively easy to find. Garage organisation is not difficult, and doesn’t have to be expensive.

Ground Works

First, you need to get everything off the ground. A few strategically placed metal shelves (that you can make yourself) and some large plastic storage bins will really help you to get that garage organised.

Plastic bins are really cheap, waterproof and water-tight. In addition, they are see-through, and can also easily be labelled, meaning you’ll be able to find what you need so much faster.

You can also stack them neatly along your shelves.

Just adding a few shelves will help immensely with storage issues and when you utilise wall space, you have much more floor room for larger items, as well as neat clear space around your cars.

Hanging About

The key to keeping your garage organised is having a place for everything. Hanging things takes up little to no floor space and utilises wall space that is typically left forgotten.

You can add as many hooks as you like to your garage walls, to customise your wall space and neatly hang tools, toys, surfboards, tennis racquets… even large items like bikes.

Handy Tool Towers

Tall long-handled tools such as brooms, mops and rakes can also be stored vertically and efficiently in tower racks. A tower rack in the corner gives you the perfect storage solution.

Getting Creative with Your Garage

Now that you’ve cleaned and organised your new space, you can keep it as your ultimate workshop, or start getting creative about how you want to utilise it.

The large open space of your garage makes it an incredibly flexible space. Try these ideas for size!

An Extra Playroom for the Kids

An unused garage makes the perfect play space. Kids will love having their own established space as they grow into their teenage years as well.

Your Own Home Office

Use glass sliding doors and light timber frames to fill your “home office” with natural light and plenty of fresh air, to give a clean, contemporary look.

Studio Dreaming

The garage is the perfect studio space, providing the space needed for painting, drawing or even dance and yoga. It also won’t matter too much about getting paint or clay on the floor.

A Home Movie Theatre

Impress your family and friends by hosting movie nights in your own home cinema. Teenage kids will love this idea – don’t forget the popcorn machine!

Whatever you decide to do, discuss your ideas with a professional before you start renovating. Garage doors will play a large role in creating your space, maximising the amount of space you have to work with, filtering light and air, and adding the right aesthetics to your transformation.
