Are you spending home improvement dollars on the wrong door of your Keller home?

Are you spending home improvement dollars on the wrong door of your Keller home?

How often do you use the front door? Not often, right? When Keller Homeowners come home from work or school, the front door now takes a back seat to the garage door.

While the front door has been the traditional focus of homeowner in both Keller and throughout the US, this major paradigm shift means more homeowners are investing in impressive garage doors with substantial curb appeal instead of front entry doors, which are used less and often shrouded in shadows.

The primary entrance
Survey's suggest that your Keller home's garage door is indeed the door used most often to enter. In fact, a significant amount of US homeowners with garages say the garage door is the primary point of entry into their home. The front entry door is used so little, many homeowners no longer even carry a key to that door. The new house key to today’s home is the remote control to the garage door.

The battle for the front
Real estate agents used to tell people that the front door is the most important element to spruce up, because it’s the first thing visitors see. Yet with the Garage door being significantly larger, that notion may be outdated.

Best door bargain in the house
While the garage door is significantly larger, research shows it’s also more affordable. The average installed garage door sale is only about $1,500, while a much-smaller fiberglass entry door runs about $2,800, according to studies. These studies also suggest that the cost of an upscale garage door was only $2,800 compared to $7,300 for an upscale front entrance. This new information may give Keller homeowners the chance to focus on their Garage door while simultaneously saving money and increasing curb appeal.

Unprecedented choices
The last 10 years have seen manufacturers introduce an unprecedented variety of dynamic new garage door styles. It’s now common for garage door dealers to offer dozens, if not hundreds of carriage house designs, the hottest new look. Visit many of the manufacturers in North Texas to see a wide variety of new designs.
Today’s garage doors are widely available in durable low-maintenance steel, and some new steel doors have a paint finish that looks exactly like real wood. Besides steel, the industry also offers innovative designs in aluminum and fiberglass. Gorgeous custom wood garage doors are also available as a premium choice.

Welcome home
Today, when Keller citizens arrive home, it’s not through the front door. In terms of use, convenience, and visual appeal, the garage door is the new front door of the Keller home.
