When it comes to selecting a new garage door, there are many factors to consider—material, style, insulation and more. The style can be difficult to choose if you’re not familiar with your options.
In an earlier blog post, we discussed different materials and types of garage doors. In this post, we are going to explain the different styles of garage doors, which can help enhance the overall exterior design of your home.
Choosing a Garage Door Style: The Different Types
In general, there are three basic styles—traditional, carriage house and modern.
Traditional garage doors have either raised or recessed panels (short or long), and there are many window choices to complement any home.
Carriage house garage doors are often used for period style homes because they have an Old World look, but they can also complement more contemporary homes. Many decorative handles and hinges are available to add great finishing touches to your carriage house style garage door.
Modern garage doors can have a flush panel or look like the doors in the picture below. Many modern style garage doors are made of aluminum (sometimes with glass).
