Happy New Year! We hope it’s filled with time with friends and family, new adventures and lots of home improvement projects. If last year taught us anything, its that home is where the heart is. And if you’re going to be sprucing up your home this year, don’t forget about your garage.
Below are five very easy (yet important) new year’s resolutions for your garage. In honor of 2020, we decided to keep the list short, simple and stress-free.
Here’s our list of five simple things you can do in 2021 for your garage.
Replace your garage door. Installing new garage doors is one of the quickest and easiest ways to boost curb appeal and add value to your home. And it can even save you a little money down the road, as you won’t have to worry about garage door repairs.
We carry the full line of Clopay garage doors, and we’re confident we have the perfect one for your budget and your aesthetic.
Take a look at our residential garage doors and our gallery. Then, when you’ve got a couple of garage door styles in mind, use the Design Your Door tool to “try it on.”
Schedule routine maintenance. This is one the most important things you can do for your garage door. Once a year garage door (and garage door opener) maintenance is a critical component to making your garage door last for years and years.
Our technicians have extensive experience and can thoroughly inspect and address any issues quickly, so your garage door continues to operate safely and properly. If it’s in need of a repair or replacement part, we’ll give you a thorough, accurate estimate and do the work promptly.
Organize your garage. There’s nothing wrong with storing items every which way in the garage. But with a little organizing, especially with the addition of extra storage, you may find you have even more room available.
Clean it out. Set a date (when the weather warms up, of course), take a cue from Nike and “just do it.”
We suggest having a plan in place for what you’ll do with everything you don’t want before you clean, so make sure you have bags and boxes for the items you want to take to the thrift store and online accounts set up if you’re selling the items on sites like Facebook Marketplace or eBay.
Make it multipurpose. The coronavirus pandemic really changed the way we work. If you’re working from home now on a regular basis, consider adding an office area to the garage, or a workout or playroom. It’s easier than you may think – and can be done on a budget.
