Your home is unique — it’s your castle, after all! How it looks is important to you. As one of the largest front facing features of your home, your garage door is so important to the overall appearance of your property. That’s why choosing the right design for your new garage door installation is so critical.
There are a variety of designs and styles of new garage doors to consider. Let’s take a look at some of our favorites.
Retractable Overhead Garage Doors
Retractable overhead garage doors run on a vertical and horizontal track. These doors are great if you have room in the driveway but might be limited on overhead room inside the garage for installation. They feature a range of designs.
Canopy Garage Doors
The beauty of canopy garage doors is their simplicity. This design swings out slightly and then slides into your garage. It requires a bit more space in your driveway as well as your garage, but this type of door is quite contemporary and attractive.
Roller Shutter Overhead Garage Doors
Tight on space? The beauty roller shutter garage doors is they have highly compact storage that doesn’t take up much room. The door opens upwards and is stored in a box above the door. This way, homeowners can maximize the space within the garage. This prioritizes existing space for storage or helps to accommodate tighter and smaller garages. This is a smoothly opening garage door that works great while keeping a home highly secure.
Sectional Overhead Garage Doors
A sectional door is a great choice if you want a garage door that opens up and over. This kind of garage door is your more traditional garage door. It includes a number of slats that are connected by hinges that bend as the door moves along a track to open and close.
Side Hinge Garage Door
The beauty of a side hinge garage door is it is easy to open and access without having to open the door completely. The split door comes in two sections, each opening up like a cupboard door. You can access the garage with only one of the garage doors open, or open it up completely for a full range of access. This type of garage door is a perfect option for a wooden garage door because of its traditional design and feel.
