These San Diego homeowners are midway through an exterior makeover on the Mid-Century modern ranch home they had recently purchased. Replacing the garage door was the first step in a master plan that also includes paint, new light fixtures and house numbers. The homeowners had Avante Collection glass garage doors on their former home and loved them so much, it was a no-brainer to contact Easy Open Door, Inc. and have them installed on the new house.

First impressions start at the front door. Plyler Overhead Door in McKean, Pennsylvania helped these homeowners make theirs much more glam with a new Clopay Rustic Collection fiberglass entry door  with Addison decorative glass in a high-gloss black finish. The monogrammed doormat is the finishing touch.

When the panels were damaged, the homeowner upgraded to an insulated Clopay Coachman Collection carriage house garage door, Design 11 with REC14 windows. It's warmer, quieter, stronger, and has great curb appeal. Installed by Joe Wilde Company in New Berlin, Wisconsin

Homebuyers often judge a house by its exterior. If they don’t like what they see on the outside, they may never see the inside. This contest winner proves curb appeal brings buyers through the door. The house was updated inside and out, but the finishing touch and first thing you see are the new Clopay Gallery Collection steel garage doors with Ultra-Grain finish installed by Best Overhead Door in Portland, Oregon. This head-turning transformation resulted in a quick sale.
