Not only does a garage door serves as a convenient entryway into the garage area, it can also enhance a home’s visual appeal, as well as increases security and property value. Today, homeowners can find garage doors that come in a wide array of materials and styles. If you are looking to select the most ideal garage door for your property, it will serve you well to know about the types of garage doors available. Here are some of the most common types of garage doors to know so that you can make an informed choice when it comes to buying garage doors:

ALUMINUM GARAGE DOORS
Modern garage door designs often feature lightweight aluminum frames and translucent window-like panels. This option typically goes well with contemporary style homes and look terrific at night as it emits light from the inside. Additionally, this effect increases the overall luminosity of a home, especially when seen from the curb.

STEEL GARAGE DOORS
Homeowners can consider installing steel garage doors if they are looking for an option that requires minimal maintenance. Steel doors typically last for a very long time so you don’t have to deal with major repairs. It is important to buff out minor scratches because these elements can cause the door to rust. No option is perfect; steel garage doors can dent in the event of major trauma. That’s why family members and friends must be careful when playing basketball in the driveway.

A great way to minimize these risks is to opt for steel panels that have a lower gauge. Alternatively, homeowners can purchase a steel door that comes with a fiberglass overlay. Although this material is tougher than steel and won’t rust, owners will need to repaint it if fading occurs due to sun exposure.

WOODEN GARAGE DOORS
Wooden garage doors are charming and can often suit any property style. Since the sizes of these doors are fully customizable, they are great for odd-sized garage door openings. This type of garage door is sturdy and can withstand bumps from children playing. Wood garage doors do require repainting and refinishing on a regular basis to maintain their good looks. Remember that neglect can cause them to chip and peel, which may lower the curb appeal of your home.

TRADITIONAL GARAGE DOORS
A traditional garage door offers a timeless look and can enhance the exterior of most homes. If you are looking for a garage door design that does not overpower the appearance of the rest of your property, traditional style garage doors are a safe option. It is recommended that homeowners choose doors that are made from natural-looking wood grain. These materials are reliable and can last for a very long time even when exposed to the unpredictable weather.

Craftsman Garage Doors
If you own a single-family home in the United States, it is a good idea to install a garage door that belongs on a Craftsman style house. These garage doors are gorgeous and are just as functional as their traditional and modern counterparts. From cross beams to side faux hinges to decorative handles, look for details that reflect your personal style and add visual interest to your home.

CONTEMPORARY GARAGE DOORS
Individuals who own traditional or modern-style homes can consider installing contemporary garage doors. The details on this type of garage door can enhance the property’s visual appeal and distinguish it from that of neighbors. If you are interested in this garage door style, choose an option that has bold colors, straight lines and windows. These design elements are eye-catching.

CLASSIC GARAGE DOORS
This type of garage door remains a great option for many homes. Because they do not swing out when they open, these doors suit homes that do not have a lot of space to spare in the driveway. Additionally, classic garage doors are a safer option for a lot of families. Parents don’t have to worry about the garage doors accidentally knocking into a child when it is opening. If you are considering installing classic garage doors, take note of the space requirements for all the hardware.

If you plan to use the extra space above the door for storage purposes, you may have to give up this space to properly install the necessary hardware, ensuring that the garage doors work flawlessly. If the garage door is positioned close to the ceiling, then the abovementioned issue will not be a great concern.

CARRIAGE STYLE GARAGE DOORS
Single bay and double garage doors are the two main carriage options available today. When it comes to carriage-style garage doors, homeowners can choose between up-and-down and swing-out carriage door designs. If you choose the latter, it is important to have enough clearance in front of the door.

Due to many builders installing classic garage doors on their customers’ homes, the popularity of carriage-style garage doors has dropped. These doors, however, are still an attractive option among homeowners. Aesthetically, these doors are more pleasing and versatile than classic style garage doors, in terms of how they open and close. This means that you can maximize the garage space by installing storage compartments above the doors.

Because carriage-style garage doors swing outward, it may be unsuitable for families with small children. Kids may get hurt or injured if they do not pay attention to the movement of the doors.

If your current garage doors are malfunctioning or outdated, they should be inspected to be repaired or replaced as soon as possible. At CT Garage Service, we offer professional garage door repair services as well as new garage door installations. Our highly trained technicians can be dispatched to your home in under an hour and restore peace of mind for your loved ones.
