Choosing the Style of Garage Door Best for Your Home

When it comes to choosing a garage door for your home, you have several things to consider: color, material, stock, custom, etc. It can be a difficult process, but the right garage door style for your home may be easier than you think.

Stock Doors

These are your fairly standard doors that are made of multiple panels, and typically do not come with glass. While having a garage door without glass panels does enhance security, it may not do much for your curb appeal. If you are concerned with enhancing it in order to sell your home, at least to a color that will match the home’s exterior well. For instance, if you have a brick home, a standard white door would work well, but a forest green colored door (with a matching front door) could be just the “pop” you’re looking for.

Semi-Custom Doors

Choose from a variety of stock options to create your own door. Less expensive than a custom door, but more unique than a stock door, this is a good middle ground option for someone on a budget.

Custom Doors

These more expensive options can be completely customized to your home. While they will be more expensive to repair or replace, when designed effectively, they add a touch of unique class to your home’s exterior.

A professional garage door service can help you not only with installation and maintenance, but also in choosing the style that works best for your home.
