Glass garage doors

glass garage doorGarage doors come in many materials, but generally steel with vinyl lamination is the most common. These doors are great, they last a long time, and there are plenty of colors, but they aren’t too appealing.  If you are looking to make a big difference in the exterior of your home, why not consider glass garage doors.

The best thing about glass garage doors is their looks. Modern designed houses would be the best candidate for a glass door, though they can add some cachet to an older home is done properly. With proper maintenance, they can last as long as a wood or steel door. But the greatest practical advantage of a glass garage door is natural light. This is particularly desired if you use your garage for more than storing your car. Some people use them for family rooms or hobby shops, in which case your garage door will have less of a “dungeon” feel.

There are of course a few downsides to glass garage doors. They do need to be cleaned frequently, though this is not particularly time consuming or difficult. You will want to use a non abrasive towel so as to not scratch the glass. Also note that glass can crack or chip and can cost to replace. Finally, glass garage doors can be a security risk, so they are better suited for very secure neighborhoods.
