Can You Install Windows In Your Garage Door After it is Installed?

House with garage door with windows

You have decided it’s time to install windows into your garage door but now you’re wondering, can I install windows into my already installed garage door? There are several things to keep in mind when deciding to install windows and our team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair is here to help.

Can I Install Windows After My Garage Door Is Installed?

The short answer is yes. However, there are some things that could make installing windows into your garage door difficult. It’s best to get an expert to decide if installing windows is the best choice that you can make for your garage door.

If your garage door is old and uses an older spring system, adding windows could cause the system to become unbalanced. If this is the case, you may need to replace your spring system or replace your garage door altogether. However, you can plan around this by making sure the windows you choose aren’t heavy enough to throw the system out of balance.

Some Things To Consider

There are plenty of factors to consider when deciding to get windows installed into your garage door. Many people overlook these factors and regret it later down the line. It’s best that you get an expert opinion to ensure you’re getting the windows that are perfectly suited for you.

The placement, style and material of your windows are all things you should consider carefully. The right windows can make your house more appealing and can even increase the property value of your home. However, the wrong windows could leave you looking for replacements fast.

What Style Should I Choose?

Your garage door windows should match the style of the other windows of your house. This will help make your garage door actually feel like part of your home and not some ugly room that you park your car in. A good-looking garage door can make your house more appealing and add to the value of your home.

Where Should I Place My Windows?

Window placement is an important yet often overlooked aspect of window installation. Placing the windows on the top section of your garage door allows for more natural light to pass through while also giving you more privacy. Placing windows on the third section allows for you to have a view of the outside of your garage while still providing natural lighting.

What Material Should I Use?

Choosing the material of your windows is arguably the most important part. Double paned glass will scratch less and be more difficult to break than other materials. Adding a tint or a shade to your glass will prevent people from being able to peek into your garage while still providing you natural light.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
