This year the main updating to the house is a garage door and front door.
Below are the pics of the before (blue) and after (black). Garage door was rusting through at the bottom and someone (
me!) backed a van into it a few years ago so I knew it would be replaced.
Went for the R16 insulated, double galvanized (steel exterior and steel interior panels), factory painted garage door. Not planning on leaving here anytime soon so the added $ was not too big a hit.
Popped for the aluminum trim around the door to help stave off exterior painting. And figured might as well replace the 20 year old opener with a new belt drive. Works a treat.
Front door install underway today. I will have some interior trim to paint in the coming weeks, but letting the pro's handle these installs.
