Aluminum Capping

Chicago’s Aluminum Capping Experts

Aluminum capping gives the garage doorframe on your home a clean and finished look. It will nicely complement your new garage door and also reduces the level of maintenance required for your doorframe in the future.

Garage Living Chicago wraps the existing doorframe in your choice of color, giving your home a finished and tidy appearance. This will increase both the curb appeal and resale value of your home.

The capping process simply involves cutting aluminum sheeting to custom-fit over your garage’s doorframe. This covers up the unsightly chips and cracks on the wooden doorframe of your garage. The capping is sealed with industrial grade caulking that can be color-matched with your home’s brick or your new garage door.

Low maintenance

Enjoy the low-maintenance benefits that aluminum capping for the garage provides. Say goodbye to the time-consuming need to scrape, stain, or paint your wooden garage doorframe every few years. And because aluminum capping creates a weather-resistant barrier between the exterior and interior of your garage, drafts are decreased. This will increase your home’s energy efficiency.
