Exploring the Garage Door
Your Garage Door plays a big part in enhancing the look and function of your home
Traditionally, the sole purpose of a garage door was to move up and down, so you could get in and out of your home. Now that the garage accounts for 25 to 35 percent of your home’s exterior, you’ll want to choose a door that reflects your individual style and enhances the architectural design of your new home.

With the growing need for space, homeowners are looking at their garage as an extension of their home.

When you look at the floor plan of your garage, look carefully at its potential as a usable/livable addition to your new home. Today’s garages are not only used to house your automobiles and RV’s, but many plans have optional lofts, apartments, offices, gyms and workshops. Don’t disregard the square footage your garage offers your new home. In fact, consult your designer and builder about insulating your garage and adding rubber floorings or epoxy covering to make your garage warm and cozy.
