When you are ready for a new garage door, there are countless styles and designs you have to choose from. The team here at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair has put together a quick resource to go over the different styles available.
Carriage Style Doors
Carriage style doors are a throwback look that many homeowners have grown to love. The basic design of carriage style gives you two separate doors that open. They can either swing out into your yard or run across a track on the wall. They will split apart like curtains.
This type of door is more expensive than other styles, which is why many will go with a carriage style look alike. You can get a traditional door designed to look like a carriage style with the normal function of a standard lift.
Standard Lift Doors
Standard lift doors come in endless styles. Since you can customize the size, panel type, color, and material, you can get just about any look you desire. Many manufacturers offer a variety of selections you can make when you order online.
One thing to consider when you are purchasing a standard lift is the type of material that’s right for your home. The different types of materials available include:

Our technicians will discuss each type of material and which one is best for you. Some of the materials are sturdier than others and some are less expensive. With the variety of materials available, you should be able to get something that works in your budget.
There are many contemporary styles on the market. These can include glass panels, full panels, and more. If you are going with a glass panel door, you do need to consider the safety concerns that come along with it.
In general, there are three different types of panels- raised, flush, and recessed. Each of these designs will give your home a look. Raised panels are fairly traditional and seen on a number of styles of homes. Recessed panels are the reverse of raised and also give a traditional look.
A flush panel design is equated with contemporary styles. These panels are flat and often made from metal or steel. People that have more modern looking homes often prefer this type of panel.
