Design Your Way to a New Garage Door

Garage doors are truly the cherry on top of your home’s curb appeal. They can take your home’s front look to a whole new level. Selecting the best design to fit into your existing style while adding something new is a fine balance that can be completed thanks to our experienced team at Affordable Garage Door and Clopay’s extensive selection. In the past few decades, garage doors have come a long way beyond the white or almond options. You can mix and match colors, materials, windows, panel types, stains, or other customized choices.

Take a moment to consider these items when picking out your garage door design.

Your home’s architecture: Modern and sleek doors do not fit into classic home styles. The historic charm of carriage style doors is the fit for classic homes as they mimic times when horses filled the roads. Contemporary doors are often in darker colors and have unique windows and a steel look. Traditional doors are more traditional with columns of panels and top windows. Of course, within any style, there are avenues to add your own personal touch.

Materials affect maintenance: You need to really think through how much time you want to spend on possible upkeep. Our region’s seasons can take a toll on materials and wood is beautiful, but does require keeping an eye on the paint or stain that you have chosen to keep a new look. Clopay offers a variety of wood options, including hemlock, cedar, and redwood. If you decide on steel, you can still enjoy wood-look finishes.

To color or not: White is still seen everywhere when it comes to garage doors. If you want to wiggle out of that box, you can choose bronze, light cherry, dark cherry, shades of brown and wood stain or tans.

View from your space: Windows are popular for those who want to use their space for more than just storage. Frosted windows can let light in but still offer privacy. The Avante Collection has an option for glass door panels to truly let natural light shine through.
