Accent your garage door
The lighting will accentuate the detail and unique features of your garage door. When people drive by, they will better notice the style and craftsmanship of your garage door. Proudly show off your new garage door!
Improve Home and Garage Security
Potential home intruders see your garage as another way to get into your home. They will consider scanning your garage door for potential weaknesses or watch to see if you accidentally leave it open.
