What Are the Pro’s and Con’s of Garage Door Windows?

garage door windows

There are a lot of features you can consider when you are in the market for a new garage door. Once you have decided what material your door will be made of and what style it will be, you will have to decide if you want to add windows. Let the staff at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair offer you some points to consider on whether to add them or not. 

The Upside to Garage Door Windows

The biggest benefit of garage door windows is that they will bring in natural light. If you anticipate spending a lot of time in your garage, natural light will help your garage to feel larger and more open. If your garage will be an extension of your living space, you may want them. 

Another benefit is that they just look great. Adding windows can add value to your home. Matching these to the style of your home can also give your house a cohesive look. 

And the Not So Good

One issue to consider is where you live and what weather-related situations may come up. You need to check your local building codes to make sure that garage windows are allowed. They may also need more maintenance than a door without them. 

Another concern is the lack of privacy having them will allow. If you are concerned about people being able to see into your garage you may want to avoid the windows. If you still want the advantage of natural light, you can add privacy by installing tinted or obscured glass or placing your windows above eye level.

Available Options

If you decide that windows are for you, you will find that there are many ways to customize your choice. You can use them to give your garage door a specific style, such as a carriage look. Another way to customize your garage door is by choosing different window placements. Some options are: 

  • Double Row
  • Vertical Column
  • All Window Option

Even the glass can be customized by choosing between tempered, insulated, UV protected, or plexiglass options. Most manufacturers have embellishment options to add design to the front of your windows. These are a great way to add character to your home. 

One More Option

If you like the idea of adding character to your garage door through windows but know that garage door windows are not the right choice for you, decorative hardware is the answer. You can find specialty kits that will give your door the appearance of having a window with reflective panes. Magnetic options are available making installation a breeze.

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.
