Aluminum capping is the perfect way to compliment your garage door! If you aren’t familiar with aluminum capping, it is a wrapping of thin aluminum sheeting that is custom-fitted over the wooden frame. It can truly give your garage a finished look but there are multiple reasons for you to invest in aluminum capping for your garage door project!
- Enhance curb appeal
For most homeowners, the garage door is the largest exterior feature on their home so it is important that it looks well-kept. A poorly kept garage door with a frame that is rotting, cracking, peeling, and chipping will make it stand out, and not in a good way. Aluminum capping will improve aesthetics and up your curb appeal.
- Colour customizable
Aluminum capping comes in a large variety of colours to select from. You can choose a colour to match your garage door or pick a colour to compliment it. To really make your garage door stand out and pop, you can even choose a contrasting colour!
- Protect the door frame
The wood frame of the garage door is prone to rotting, cracking, warping, and mold. Aluminum is a very durable material that is resistant to corrosion. Aluminum capping will protect the wood from the elements so that it will last much longer.
- Minimal maintenance
The only maintenance needed is a gentle wipe down one to two times per year with water and a mild detergent. No need for stripping, sanding, painting or staining your wood frame to keep it in great condition. Aluminum won’t rust or corrode so there isn’t any need for touch ups. Aluminum capping will last for many years before you even need to consider replacement.
- Energy efficiency
Capping your wooden garage door frame will add a protective barrier and create a tighter seal, keeping out drafts and helping to stabilize the temperature of your garage. Since your garage temperature can affect the temperature inside your home, especially rooms that share a wall or ceiling with it, aluminum capping can help with the energy efficiency of your home. If you use your garage as an additional living space within your home it can be particularly beneficial to maintain a comfortable temperature and save on energy bills.
Aluminum capping is a valuable addition to upgrading your garage door in both aesthetics and practicality. With its added curb appeal, ability for customization, weather protection, energy efficiency and low maintenance, aluminum capping is well worth the investment. You can be sure that your garage door frame will look amazing for a long time to come. The Door Master specializes in aluminum capping around garage doors so you can trust that it will be done right!
