Why Full View Garage Doors Are an Excellent Choice
Whether you are based in the city of Vaughan like ourselves, in neighbouring Richmond Hill, or somewhere else in the Greater Toronto Area, the following reasons should certainly give you food for thought.
1. Great for Future Garage Conversions – If you decide to convert your garage into extra living space at some point in the future, the fact that it has a glass door installed will put you at a distinct advantage. Full view garage doors allow loads of natural light in, turning the place you may currently use to park your car into a much more pleasant space.
2. Increased Curb Appeal – A modern glass garage door, with an aluminum frame in the colour of your choice, will add instant curb appeal to your home. When compared to their solid counterparts, through which no light can ever penetrate, they evoke a far more spacious look and feel.
3. Easy to Maintain – The glass in your new garage door will be just as easy to clean as the windows in the rest of your property and will never be susceptible to rot, or the cracks that can occur in wooden doors when the humidity levels in the air suddenly change. For homeowners in Richmond Hill and other parts of the GTA, where humid summers and cold winters are the norm, this is a great benefit.
4. Simple to Modify – The appearance of full view garage doors can be changed very easily, with the application of tinted film to the panes of glass. Compared to staining and varnishing wood, the application of such film is an easy task that can be completed far more quickly.
5. More Durable Than the Alternatives – Neither glass nor aluminum rots or rusts over time, making full view garage doors an excellent option for homeowners who are looking for a low maintenance alternative to their existing garage doors.
6. Great for Displaying Your Car – Admittedly this is not an attractive reason if you own a decrepit old car that has long since lost its showroom lustre but if you have just spent a small fortune on a beautiful new car and you would love to show it off to the neighbours, doors that are almost entirely constructed from glass are the perfect choice.
7. Good Security – You might think that glass doors would make your garage vulnerable to intruders but the type of glass that is used in quality models is strong and tamper resistant. This makes them a good option for homeowners who wish to make their garage more secure. If you choose tinted windows, passers by will not be able to see what you are keeping inside either.
