  • Garage Door Styles for the Home

  • In many homes, the garage doors make up a significant portion of the front part of their property. These doors can therefore contribute significantly to the overall appearance of your home. Attractive garage doors look great and make the property feel homely, while old and worn out garage doors are a turn off to look at.

    Garage door services can help you install unique and stylistic doors that fit your style of home décor. When it comes to the style selections, there are many options to choose from. Here are some ideas to get you started.

    Antique Carriage Doors

    Carriage doors represent the types of doors that were found in old carriage-style homes. These antique doors are made of wood and tend to swing open from the center. They are great for homes with earth-colored tones on the outside and wooden doors that are next to the garage itself.

    Garage door services can fix these wooden doors and make them have features of a modern design. They can be turned into electronic doors that you can operate remotely even when not near your home.

    Raised-panel Doors

    These are the most common types of garage doors that are used today. They consist of a single panel made of aluminum, fiberglass or steel. The panel can be raised to open up the garage space, or lowered to close it. The operation of the door itself can be automated or manual.

    Modern Design Doors

    Modern design doors, also referred to as contemporary garage doors, incorporate a modern design that uses high quality materials such as tempered glass or high grade aluminum frames. These high-end garage doors are custom-made to fit a specific style of home décor. For example, the tempered glass garage doors can be fitted with unique lighting patterns that boost their visual appeal. Garage door services can install unique features into modern garage doors to make them truly stand out.

    Double Panel Doors

     Double panel garage doors look a lot like regular doors that are present in most homes. The difference is that they consist of two distinct panels at the entrance of the garage, and the panels open outwards from the center of the entryway.

    Another design that double panel doors can have is a raised design, where both panels can be raised and lowered from the top of the garage (similar to raised panel doors). Double panel doors are highly customizable options for the home.
