You probably don’t think of your garage as an extension of your home but whether you have an attached or free-standing garage, it is an important part of your property. An attractive garage is an important part of the curb appeal of your home. Take a good look at your garage and chances are you’ll find some room for improvement to the exterior or the inside.
If you have a newer home, garage doors are what people usually see first when they look at your house. An attached garage is often up to or more than half the size of the front of a house so if it doesn’t look its best, neither does your house. New garage doors give your garage a facelift and complement your home.
Dean Lumber in Southern Maryland carries garage doors manufactured by Amarr and Raynor, backed up by a lifetime warranty on the motor and a 1 year parts warranty. There are many styles to choose from, to match your home’s exterior décor or provide a stunning contrast. If you would like to change and improve the exterior of your home, one of the first things on your remodel list should be replacing the garage door.
Garage doors include safety features such as an automatic stop; if a pet, child or object breaks the invisible beam of light at floor level the door will stop descending. This feature has saved many lives and prevented property damage to thousands of cars and outdoor equipment. The Posilock safety feature automatically locks the door upon closure, preventing break-ins by intruders or vandals. Should your power be interrupted, there is a manual release handle on all of our garage doors.
No matter what type of garage doors you need, Dean Lumber can help. We have single car and two-car models in many styles and finishes. You can get garage doors to match your beautiful wooden front door or choose an attractive white metal door. Beautiful windows let in light from the outside or you might want to pick out a solid door.
Garage doors are an excellent way to help control your energy costs, too. Older garage doors were not designed to keep your garage as airtight as possible; newer models help prevent heat and cold from invading your garage. If you’ve ever winced at the blast of cold air that sweeps into your home when you enter from parking the car, you know how much money that can save!
What about the interior of your garage? Whether you want to install a workshop, rejuvenate an existing one or install garage cabinets we have what you need in stock at one of our many locations. Garage cabinets are an important and convenient feature even if you don’t want a workshop in your garage. They can hold car washing and maintenance supplies, your vehicle’s winter gear, extra fluids can be put out of reach of curious children and they can even store yard maintenance equipment. Garage cabinets from Dean Lumber add to the value and beauty of your home and keep your garage safe and clutter free.
