Mike Toyooka (owner of West Coast Overhead Door) came to my little Santa Monica beach bungalow this week and gave it a facelift that was so beyond anything I hoped for, I had to look up his FB to give him a SHOUT OUT!!! This little untouched 1957 run-down gem had a classic heavy wooden wide door that was so impossible to open, there was no point trying to use the spacious garage for an actual vehicle. Now, a push of a button, a whisper as the door rolls up without needing any space in front or behind like the old swing-up door needed, and VOILA you are in. And the face of the house looks amazingly better. I always read the lines about these doors "increase the curb appeal of your home" and thought it was just a specious ad pitch. But it is absolutely true. Even my period house, which I would have thought would reject a modern door like Happy Days would have rejected Quentin Tarantino. But I ordered one with diamond shaped windows across the top that mirrored the diamond-set window panes down the side of the house, and that door looks a million times better than the old one ever did.My picture is below this, yellow house in Santa Monica, thanks Mike for posting pics!
