Homeowners are all about curb appeal these days, looking for ways to increase the value of their homes. One simple way to boost the look of your home is by upgrading or updating your garage door.

Wood Accents are a popular trend in interior design but some homeowners don’t want to deal with the upkeep. There’s hope, faux wood garage doors are made to look like wood but they are made out of steel or fiberglass. Provides you with durability while giving you the natural look you want.

We were ecstatic when Jordana and Marc asked Overhead Door of the Northland to be a part of their remodel being featured in Midwest Home Magazine! They chose a very dramatic glass and metal door from our new (Name) line, that fit the exterior of their house so well! The best part, according to Marc? You can open it with an app from anywhere in the world. That means he can let the kids or workmen in, while he is sitting at his desk at work! Jordana describes the garage doors as her “salvation.” We don’t know if there is a better compliment we could get than that!

Garages can sometimes turn into an oven during summertime, which magnifies the summer heat. Here are a few tips to surviving a hot summer in your garage:
Pick a Light Color – If you live in an area that known for hot summers. Take that into consideration when it comes to purchasing your garage door. Dark colors absorb heat while light colors reflect heat. Choosing colors such as white, off-white, or beige will help keep the heat out.
Insulation – The insulation of your garage plays a huge role in how hot your garage will get. Wood garages are natural insulators so they will repel heat. Consider adding insulation around window, doors, walls, and ceiling to keep the garage cool.
