Garage Door Style Guide

Your garage takes up a lot of space in your home. A perfectly chosen garage door can add great curb appeal to your property. A garage door is a great investment in your home and property. The team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of San Franscico has some helpful suggestions on choosing the right garage door style that compliments your home.

Consider Your Home’s Exterior

Before you buy a brand new garage door, first think about your home’s exterior. You should choose a door style that is similar to your home. Some people think of color when they’re first choosing a door. Try focusing on the style instead. Most styles are simple to customize later.

Contemporary Style

Choosing a garage door style that compliments your home is very important. You want others to admire your house from the street. Contemporary styles compliment modern houses and often have a clean look. These doors usually have glass or frosted panels.

Some modern houses have doors that fold up and down into a single panel. These are called slab doors. If you have a modern house with designs, consider matching the same style to your door.

Traditional Looks

Traditional style doors are perhaps the most popular. These doors have single multiple panels that roll up on tracks. They suspend on these overhead tracks in your garage.

Manufacturers make these doors to complement any home style including:

  • European
  • Ranch
  • Colonial
  • French Country style
  • American Traditional
  • And others…

Most traditional doors have materials that are wood or steel. The great thing about traditional wood doors is that they’re easy to customize. You can also insulate them for the region you live in.

Different Panels

Manufacturers can make garage doors with a variety of panel styles. A raised panel is one of the most popular. These are also easy to customize. Older models feature raised panels that look like they’re floating on air. Panels are still raised in newer model doors but they look like solid rectangle shapes.

Materials such as vinyl, wood, steel, glass, or aluminum are popular choices for this style. If you’re not sure what material is best for your home, get in touch with your local expert. They will have plenty of advice on what materials will pair well with your home.

Carriage Doors

Carriage style doors are often thought of as an older type of door. These doors are back in style and are another popular choice for homeowners. You can choose a traditional or more modern look.

Traditional carriage doors swing outward much like a barn door. Modern style doors can still look the same but they use an automatic opener. Whether you want a manual or automatic opener, these doors will add a rustic charm to your home.

If you’re thinking about buying a new garage door, the team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair of San Francisco has the advice you need. Our team is very knowledgeable when it comes to choosing styles and materials. We’ll even send someone to measure your garage space and give you advice on the perfect fit for your home.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
