Garage Door Window Options
Are you wondering about adding windows to your garage door? It is important to take these four factors into consideration before you make your final decision.
- Window Design
- Window Quality
- Insulated Windows
- Window Shape
1) Window Design
Adding windows to your garage door is a perfect way to let in natural light into your garage. If it is more light you are looking for (in addition to curb appeal), opting for a plain glass window might be your best bet. If you don’t care too much about the light, you might want to consider getting designed glass windows that coordinate with your front door and current house windows.
2) Window Quality
Everyone needs to consider quality when it comes to adding garage door windows. If you live in an area with frequent hurricanes or storms, you might want to upgrade from plain glass to impact-resistant windows that can withstand winds over 150 mph.
3) Insulated Windows
Lots of people are eco-conscious these days, and if you are looking to conserve energy, you might want to consider insulated garage door windows. Insulated windows help prevent your garage from overheating. Another option, if insulated windows aren’t in your budget, are tinted or frosted windows.
4) Window Shape
There is a variety of garage door window shapes to choose from on the market. Choose from the traditional square design, or explore other options, like arched windows, or some to match the existing windows on your home.
New Garage Door With Windows
One thing is for sure, adding windows to your garage door is certain to boost your home’s value. But what if your garage door is outdated or aged? A better option might be replacing your garage door with one that already has windows. This can cut down on costs in the long run because you’ll eventually have to replace your garage door anyway.
