Choosing the garage door with windows - Way to ehance your home appeal 25th April 2024

Spring is in horizon, and we start thinking about home improvement, such as upgrading garage doors. Garage doors play an key role in improving safety and protection to your property, as well as making a big difference in kerb appeal. At The Garage Door Centre, we have a range of garage doors with windows available from some leading manufacturers as Teckentrup, Ryterna, etc.. In this article, we will explore three top reasons why this stylish option is becoming more and more popular.

1. Natural Light and Energy Efficiency

When choosing the garage doors with windows, the primary advantage is the penetration of natural light into the garage area. This sunlight lightens up the garage space, making it more functional and inviting while reducing the need for artificial light during the day, especially in the summer. In addition, the natural light coming from the window may warm the garage areas, which reduces the need for artificial lighting or a heating system. By leveraging natural light and enhancing energy efficiency, garage doors with windows present a sustainable choice for modern living.

2. Enhanced Aesthetics and Kerb Appeal

Garage doors with windows enhance the beauty and sophistication of the outside of your house. They introduce variety to the solid doors, generating visual interest and architectural appeal. Homeowners can personalise their garage doors with a variety of windows by choosing from different designs, size and placements that complement the overall design of their house. Whether your property is modern or classic in form, garage doors with windows are designed to blend in with a variety of architectural types. From sleek, minimalist designs to more stylish and unique, our window options are abundant. It is safe to say that we can customise any window preference to meet your styles.

So which types of garage doors can have windows?

1.1 Up and Over Garage Doors

In the UK, up and over garage doors are the most popular types because of its easy accessibility.

Additionally, up and over doors provides a variety of window options for you to customise. Made from

double glazed scratch-resistant Polymer, our doors are available with a wide range of window designs,

including modern and contemporary style windows and more traditional styles such as rectangular cross mullion.

There are several glazing options available to you, including clear, frosted*, and satin* finishes.

Windows will vary from single glazed acrylic, 6-8mm real glass, double glazed units using aryclic, or

real glass and triple glazed sections in garage doors where glazing is the main feature. We have a lot of

options that can suit any needs.

1.2 Sectional Garage Doors

Sectional doors are composed of several horizontal panels that open and closer vertically. Sectional doors have the advantage of saving space, as they do not swing outwards when opening. Sectional doors by Garador or Teckentrup that allow for window options.

1.3 Side Hinged Garage Doors

Side hinged doors are popular in window designs due to their outward opening, providing easy accessibility. Incorporating windows allows for ample natural light, particularly beneficial when frequent entry is required.
