Garage Door Styles to Complement Your Home’s Curb Appeal

Wood Garage Doors:

The natural beauty of solid wood is undeniable, even in garage doors. The raised or recessed panels offer added elegance with the option of windows along with the top panel. They complement architectural styles from traditional to contemporary and add a timeless elegance at an affordable price.

If you live in a rural area, want a rustic look or are hoping to give your home a traditional feel, wood garage doors might be the perfect pick for you. You can choose the wood material and stain you like to suit your home for an understated yet refined appearance. Just make sure your doors are finished with a waterproof adhesive sealant to protect them from the weather.

Carriage Style Swing Doors:

Our carriage house style garage doors feature the perfect blend of function & sophisticated element of homes. Carriage style garage doors are ideal for classic and historic homes but also compliment modern and traditional homes exceptionally well. They look good, period.

The rustic charm of the carriage house and the modern convenience of an overhead garage door are available in a variety of panel styles, colors, and windows. And also iron handles and hinge details give your home’s architectural balance and bring this old-timey look to life.

Whether you are seeking the perfect match for new construction or simply replacing existing garage doors, carriage house style can be the ideal way to incorporate your taste into your home’s exterior while also enhancing curb appeal.

Modern Flair:

If your home is more contemporary, consider a garage door that features clean lines and translucent glass panels. Without sacrificing security, a glass-paneled door admits light during the day and when backlit at night, radiates like a jewel. And also, add strategically placed lighting for a dramatic look sure to impress.

Full view garage doors are an eclectic and dynamic choice for modern homes and also work well with mid‑Century style houses.

Arched Top Style Garage Doors

Garage doors with unique contours such as the arched top add architectural elegance to function Painting the doors black and adding overhead lighting adds sophistication and warmth.

A Custom Look
