Pros of Garage Doors With Windows

  1. Natural light: Garages are naturally dark, and by adding windows to your garage doors you can bring in natural light. You’ll have less need to turn the lights on in the garage because of it, which also saves on energy costs. If you want to use your garage as a workout location or plan to employ the workbench for home improvement projects, remember that creating a brighter space with natural sunlight will make the area more appealing and help it feel bigger.
  2. Attractive design aesthetics: If you want to increase the curb appeal of your house, adding garage doors with windows is a great way to do it. Garage doors with windows look attractive and can set your home apart from others on the block with a little extra curb appeal. You can even choose garage doors with windows that look similar to the windows on your house. This type of design symmetry will attract potential buyers if you put the house on the market.

Cons of Garage Doors With Windows

  • Insulation: Insulation keeps the warm air in the garage during the winter and the hot air out in the summer. The more insulation you have, the more temperature control you’ll enjoy. Garage doors with windows have less insulation, as glass panes don’t provide the same protection as a solid door. They can let in sunlight that warms the garage, but they’ll do so in both winter and summer.
  • Potential cost: If you’re upgrading your doors to add windows, expect it to get expensive. Altering existing garage doors costs a lot, and you could potentially cause damage to your door in the process. You’ll need to determine whether updating the garage doors will make them unbalanced. The engineering in these systems is easy to throw off because it involves such a precise calculation, and the weight of the door will change when you add windows.
