Replacing the Garage Door

You know when you know!

Replace your old garage door today

You know it is time to get a new garage door when it's bringing down the look of the whole house. 

This old metal garage door has been on the house for almost 20 years. We've replaced the siding and the shutters, gotten a new roof and replaced the windows. 

But the garage door is old, dirty, and dented thanks to one of my daughters thinking D meant reverse.

The edges have become discolored and moldy.

The windows were fogged out years ago.

So it was time. 

We hired a fantastic local company called RDC Insulation and Garage Doors

We chose a gorgeous garage door from the Coachman® collection in their catalog and it was installed while I was at work.

We couldn't be happier with the results! This one small change made all the difference in the look of the house.

We had them add an electric door opener with a super bright light that was the icing on the cake. 

Thanks to RDC Insulation and Garage Door Company for all their help with this project. They worked quickly and left the place spotless! I recommend them to all our friends and family on Long Island!

    1. Thanks Donna! Yes we had a few reasons one being that Kerry hit drive instead of reverse :/

  2. Wow. That really did make a big difference! The whole house looks newer.
