The advantages of a garage door with windows

Adding some windows to your garage door will instantly add brightness to your garage. It can turn what was once a dingy garage space into a sunlit place where you can enjoy tinkering with the car. There are a few things to consider, though, when adding in windows to your garage door. This article provides you with a handy guide to the world of garage door windows, detailing three key things to think about.

1. Windows that can be opened

Most garage door windows are fixed in place and cannot be opened or closed. However, it can be nice to install at least one window that can be opened in the summer. This is especially useful if you have a large garage that you also use as a space for doing projects, or even lounging on a sofa and watching TV.

2. The issue of security

It is crucial to keep your garage safe and secure at all times. Adding grilles or bolts to windows will enable you to maximise their security, as will placing windows high up in the garage door and far away from any door handles or catches will ensure that they are nice and secure. Choosing tough glass is good for security as is opting for ridged or frosted glass that makes it difficult to use the window to see inside the garage. All in all, there are plenty of options to choose from in this regard, and it is perfectly possible to have a nice and secure garage window that looks very attractive too.

3. Size and placement of the windows

Small garage windows look good placed high up on the garage door, as this way they can let the maximum amount of light in. If you like, though, you can opt for larger windows that take up nearly the entirety of the top half of the door. Again, this is particularly good if you use your garage as part of your living space and want to enjoy a bright, sunlight place where you can relax, play some music with your friends, or work on DIY or craft projects away from the main house.
