A little “facelift” would go a long way if you want to update the look of your garage door. Neighborhood Garage Door Services of Dallas, Texas wants to help you and your home look the best. You can do this without a major blow to your wallet and budget.
Check out these four DIY projects that will enhance and update the appearance of your garage door.
Wireless Keypads Are Convenient
You can install your own wireless keypad for as little as $20. Some models are a bit pricier but you can decide on a budget that works for you. These keypads are easy to quickly install at home.
Advantages to a wireless keypad includes:
- You can open your garage while outside with ease and not have to hunt for the opener or open your car to get to it.
- Security is a huge plus because a burglar won’t be able to get in because it’s coded.
- You can program multiple codes so not everyone that has it (like a neighbor feeding your dog) will be able to always get in.
A wireless keypad would make getting in and out of your door easy when you aren’t near your opener. Talk about a simple upgrade DIY opportunity!
Additional Storage for Organization
Every garage can use extra storage room. One garage upgrade that about anyone can do is to add shelves and cabinets to create more space and organization in your garage.
You can easily pay big bucks to have a garage manufacturing company do this for you; however, we know that you can do it in house for a much lower price.
You’ll need the following materials to add extra storage to your garage:
- 1×4 boards
- Shelf braces
- A plan drawn up for the type of cabinets and shelves you’d like to make and where you want to install them in your garage.
Paint Your Garage Floor
This garage update is one that can be done at home and adds a touch of color to a fairly plain looking area of your home. Epoxy or paint will do the trick for you. You can pay less than $200 and spend a day and a half of your time to produce a new and improved look for your garage.
If you want to enhance the look of your garage area, then be sure you clean it up. Consider power washing the driveway so you can get rid of oil stains and dirt that builds up over time. This is very simple project.
Steps to clean the driveway leading into your garage include:
- Thoroughly sweep your driveway.
- Power wash the area leading up to and inside your garage.
- Seal the driveway surface.
You can find tips to clean your driveway with a pressure washer online and do this project on your own to save money, enhancing the look of your garage.
