Next Up: Sound Proof AND Noise Proof Your Garage

The first step towards some of our alternative garage door ideas involves soundproofing your garage.

If your garage has insulation and drywall, that does most of the hard work! If a podcast or recording studio is up your alley, you may want to add soundproofing to the walls and garage door windows.

Depending on your garage door’s material and with a little work, you can seriously improve the acoustics of the garage. If it’s made of metal, does the metal rattle when you’re playing music?

A garage door idea that will help isolate noise is to add soundproofing barriers like foam panels and thick weatherstripping around the interior and exterior of your garage door opening. Wooden or fiberglass garage doors are better natural insulators. And that insulation can make a big difference.

Now You Can Begin Setting Up Your Garage Door Haven

Once you’ve soundproofed your elevated garage space, no one hanging out in the kitchen has to cover their ears each time you use a power saw, play the drums, or crank up your UTV!

Even More Garage Door Ideas!

  • Build a wall of cubby holes for different supplies, materials, and small equipment. 
  • For hunting, you may load your ammo on a standing or extended office desk.
  • If your hobby is woodworking, the garage is a woodshop made-to-order. You have plenty of room for your workbench, table saw, jigsaw, clamps, hand tools, workhorses, and more.
  • If you’re into mechanics, your garage is a safe place to work on your offroading vehicle, work truck, or van. Ask us about high-lift garage door installation to make even more room for your hobby and working ventures!
  • Clear away storage and floor items so there’s plenty of room for drums, keyboards, amplifiers, speakers, guitars, and other instruments.

Whatever purpose you find for your garage, if you think about a smart setup, there’s a good chance it can double as the place to park your car.
