When you add aluminum capping around your garage doorframe, your home’s exterior will have a more clean and finished appearance. Aluminum capping from Garage Living of Houston also significantly reduces the necessity for doorframe maintenance.
“Capping” simply means that your garage’s existing wooden doorframe is wrapped with aluminum sheeting in the color of your choice. It provides a nice aesthetic complement to your new garage door and will increase both the curb appeal and resale value of your house.
The aluminum capping installation process involves two steps. First, we measure your garage’s wooden doorframe and cut aluminum sheeting to fit over it. This will cover up any of the doorframe’s unsightly chips and cracks. Then we seal the capping with industrial grade caulking that can be color-matched to complement your home’s exterior or your new garage door.
Because your garage doorframe is now protected from the exterior elements, you can enjoy the low-maintenance benefits that come with aluminum capping. That means no more scraping, painting, or staining your garage doorframe every few years. And because aluminum capping creates a weather-resistant barrier between the outdoors and your garage interior, you’ll have fewer drafts, which means better home energy efficiency.
