Excellent article! I spent several years installing garage doors early in my career. Garage doors have come a long way in the last twenty years. There are so many more options for our clients to choose from. The garage doors sometimes takes up fifty percent of the exterior facade. Replacing the doors is an easy and cost effective way to add curb appeal, but choose carefully. The wrong door style could clash with the original architectural design of your home.

My garage totally disappears from the front of my 1850s brick rowhouse - I don't have one. We park on the street in the neighborhood and I have no regrets. Plus, there is no parking on my side of the street so it is nice to talk home and see no cars in front of the house.

Having undercover off street parking was a pre-requistite for my car loving husband. The advice in the article was spot on......as our garage/carport was separated from the house with its own roof......and it still looks amazing.
