This was a super easy project that literally took like 15 minutes from start to finish. In my opinion it adds more character and curb appeal to the house.
As we were shopping in Home Depot for a new furnace filter we ran across this awesome product. I always wanted Carriage Style garage doors but it wasn't an option with the program we built with. I always thought it would be a down-the-road upgrade we would have to save our pennies for. Little did I know it was an easy project that would only take a few minutes and a few dollars!
This hardware kit was on sale at The Home Depot for only $6.99. Seriously?! It costs about the same as a combo meal at a fast food restaurant. Definitely affordable. How could we pass it up?
Place and measure where you want to situate the brackets, making sure they line up on both sides and are level.
Drill the screws in the brackets in the designated holes.
Figure out where you want your handles situated. There are a few different options, whether you want them closer together or farther apart. Make sure they are level, then mark where you need to pre-drill the holes.
Pre-drill where you marked the holes, put on the handles, then insert the bolts.
Put the bracket in the bolts on the inside of the garage door, then tighten the nut around the bolt.
I think it made a pretty big difference.
