A1 Door Company is here to help make sure that your home or business has the perfect door to suit both your needs and your style. We intend for these trends to help you make an informed decision when it comes to selecting your next garage door.

Design Trends

When it comes to 2023 garage door design, a few important things to note include:

Black is the new white

Black offers a modern and timeless look that pairs perfectly with any home aesthetic. It also provides an opportunity for homeowners to express themselves through unique hardware finishes, accents, and panels. The increased popularity of black garage doors will add value to homes and create an eye-catching statement piece for the exterior of any property.

Woodgrain colors have become incredibly realistic

Woodgrain texture is a popular choice for homeowners, but traditional wood doors can require more maintenance and upkeep than other materials. With advances in technology, wood-look finishes are now available that provide realistic grain patterns with the strength of steel or fiberglass. This way, you get the classic look and feel of natural wood without having to worry about regular maintenance!

Full View Aluminum Doors

Full-view aluminum doors are becoming increasingly popular for both residential and commercial applications. These contemporary glass paneled doors offer a sleek and modern look that can be customized with a range of frame colors and hardware finishes. Not only do they provide an unobstructed view, but allow natural light to enter the interior space, making it appear larger!

Carriage-style overlay doors

Carriage-style overlay doors are a great way to add a touch of character and charm. These overlays mimic classic swing-door designs, providing elevated curb appeal and convenient entry access. Showcasing a unique and elegant design, overlay garage doors have steel or wooden panels that are adhered to the underlying door to create the look.

Craftsman style remains popular

At the same cost as traditional stamped doors, craftsman doors offer an artisanal look that is sure to impress. The craftsman style combines the warmth of wood with intricate detailing and an array of colors and finishes to give your garage door a unique flair.

Windows are in!

Adding windows to your garage door can add a beautiful and unique touch to your home. Whether you want to make a statement, or just let in a little more natural light, windows are the perfect solution. The best part? With today’s new technologies, you can choose from a variety of designs and finishes that will fit your style.

Construction Trends

Trends in construction materials may not be groundbreaking, but there are still some things to consider when it comes to what doors are made of.

Materials & Insulation

Garage door materials being used today haven’t changed much; steel and aluminum are still the most popular materials due to their strength and durability However, one trend that is gaining momentum is the use of insulated doors.

Insulated garage doors are becoming increasingly popular, especially the Raynor Aspen 138. The typical R-Value of homes in the state of Virginia is 13, and this garage door is insulated with polyurethane and a steel backer, making its R-Value match those of the customer’s walls.


A1 Door also offers a variety of features that will help make your garage door even more efficient. These include insulated rollers to reduce noise, pinch-resistant panels to protect your fingers, and weather seal to keep the elements out. For those looking for a more modern statement piece, 2023 trends offer plenty of options to choose from.

Technology Trends

Tech in garage doors is advancing as quickly as in every other industry, and A1 Door Company is proud to be at the forefront with our offerings.

With just a simple command, a smart garage door opener will allow you to open and close your garage doors with ease, as well as set timers for them to stay open or closed.

This technology allows for more accurate and reliable performance of your garage door opener. Each time you open or close the door, this feature will count how many times the springs have gone around, helping to extend their lifespan and ensuring that your door is operating safely.

LED lights for improved visibility

Cameras for in-home deliveries

Home deliveries can be stressful, but with a camera installed with your garage door, you can ensure that packages are delivered to the right place. This is especially helpful if you have multiple garages or an area in front of your home where packages are often left.
