Did you know garage doors can account for almost 40% of your home’s facade? That’s a pretty large percentage, right! That means with just new garage doors alone, you can dramatically change the look and feel of your home.
Well, I can’t wait to show you what we did! We’re finally getting into the fun part of this outdoor project. I’m going to show you how we switched out the old garage doors for our new and improved GARAGA doors.
Let’s begin with the garage door trim (also known as the jambs). It’s quite common to see the jambs rotting at the bottom of the frame over time. You can see from the picture below, that our trim has started to crack and split which means water has begun to penetrate behind the paint.
There were a couple of options I could have done. 1) replace all the wood, which is the most expensive route to go; 2) I could use aluminum capping over the existing wood, which is a mid range expense; or 3) repair it and paint it myself, which of course, barely costs anything.
Being a DIYer, I chose to fix it myself. Since I didn’t have any damage or rot beyond repair, I knew I could salvage the wood and prolong the life just with a new paint job
