Have you ever heard of covering your garage door frame as a benefit to your home? Believe it or not, there are several reasons you should consider making this upgrade. We suggest you cover your garage door frame with aluminum.
Here are the reasons that it’s a good idea to do this upgrade:
Protect The Wooden Frame
Your door frame is made from wood and susceptible to destruction from the elements. Of course, the wood is painted or treated with a chemical to keep it protected. However, putting aluminum around the frame offers great protection.
Less Maintenance Needed
Over time, you will end up needing to paint the door frame of the garage and other doors of your home for that matter. In order to keep from having to do that type of maintenance, you can install the aluminum on the frame. Otherwise, the sun and weather can destroy the wood. This will cause a lot of hassle when the frame needs to be replaced.
When the aluminum gets dirty, you can clean it with the hose or rub it down with soap and water. There’s not as much maintenance needed to keep it looking nice.
Enhance Curb Appeal
Covering the door frame is a good way to enhance the curb appeal of your home. Any time you make adjustments to the outside of your house, it can increase your overall property value. Potential buyers want to see that you keep your property up.
Even if you are not selling your home, a greater property value is to your benefit. If you want to take out a loan and borrow against the equity in your home, these types of adjustments will make the price of your property higher. That means you’ll be able to borrow more for the projects you want to accomplish.
What Aluminum is Used?
The aluminum that is used for this type of project, is the same materials used to make gutters or other building parts made from aluminum. The sheets are cut and bent to fit your door frame. You might be able to do this project yourself, but we suggest you have one of our technicians help you.
Will You Need to Replace the Aluminum
This is a long-lasting solution for your door. You shouldn’t have to replace it unless the aluminum becomes damaged or bent for some reason. In the event that rust appears, you should also make the replacement. However, this material should protect your home for years to come.
