Your Garage Door: Simi Valley Styles

As with any city, Simi Valley homes come in a wide range of price points and architectural styles. Perhaps, as with any professional that has experience in their field, we notice garage doors more than most people. Its like the landscaper who can spot a poor lawn mowing job a mile away, or the plastic surgeon who looks at people’s noses and instinctively sees how he can improve their appearance. And so, it is with us and garage doors, Simi Valley homeowners.

Should you start really looking at people’s garages as you drive around any neighborhood, you might notice, as we have, that most people don’t seem to realize that these huge doors come in other colors besides white. Maybe no one has told them that steel garage doors can be turned into something awesome with artfully applied faux finishes and remain low maintenance. We’re not just talking about high priced doors here, this is true even with the economy-priced models.

Why is it that homeowners pay less attention to the stylishness or curb appeal value of their garage door than they do the flowers planted next to the front porch? We suspect that they just haven’t had the wide world or garage doors unveiled to them, because people can certainly see the difference in one set of furniture over another, or that the wrong color of shutters or shingles won’t do their curb appeal much good.

"Quality is remembered long after price is forgotten."

Instead of keeping up with the Jones’ and making these large expanses a cookie cutter element from one end of your street to the other, perhaps you should consider one-upping the people next door. It will do wonders for making your property more outstanding, of that you can be certain. In fact, you could start a trend with a domino effect that can actually be the key to raising home values on your block. With garage doors? Simi Valley real estate market facts prove that a great looking garage door will repay you 90% of the investment. Better yet, they have as much impact on your marketability as the front door.

The better the construction and materials quality, the less need you will have for garage door repair. Simi Valley homeowners aren’t all aware of that fact. Many times, not realizing how important better quality is to saving money in the future, people make their purchasing decision here like they would any utilitarian object. They spend the least amount of money possible. The result is that the will need to call for repairs on garage door panels, broken springs, door off track, and even recurring repairs on their garage door opener.

Yes, its part of your garage, but its also something you use everyday and it has tremendous influence on the exterior appearance of your home. Sure, you can buy a garage door in our area for less than $400 dollars, but without a doubt you’ll be looking for garage door repair services soon after. It’s just the nature of low quality things. Quality products don’t cost as much as you think. Investing in a better quality door actually pays off in the long run with things that are used a great deal and constantly exposed to the elements. Buy wisely for both style and construction, and you’ll be glad you made that decision for a number of important reasons.
