Stamped vs. Overlay Garage Doors

Summer is here, which means you’ll be spending more time outdoors enjoying the gorgeous weather! If you’re planning on hosting outdoor parties, you may be thinking of ways to boost curb appeal and spruce up your home’s appearance.

If that old garage door is an eyesore, consider replacing it with a new one. Carriage style garage doors are beautiful and can add a unique touch to any home exterior. There are two main types: overlay and stamped. What’s the difference between them and which one is right for your home?

Stamped & Overlay Carriage Garage Doors

Shaped from steel and embossed with a finish (like wood grain), stamped garage doors are beautiful and long-lasting. They have a design “stamped” into the face of the door.

Stamped Carriage Garage Doors

Overlay garage doors feature steel or wood panels that are placed on top of the original door to create an appearance of depth and subtle sophistication. Different materials can be used—for instance, carriage doors made with an overlay can be constructed with flush steel panels and wood overlays.

Overlay Carriage Garage Doors

Although stamped carriage garage doors may offer less in design options, they tend to be more affordable and more durable. If cost and durability are your top priorities, consider a stamped door. Other than that, both options are beautiful and can add distinct character to your home.
