Category: Faces of Steel Garage Doors

The Many Faces of Steel Garage Doors

The garage door is a major contributor to curb appeal and for most homeowners, it’s a one-time purchase. That means they rarely know what’s available in terms of materials and designs, and they often feel overwhelmed by the options. The durability and low-maintenance nature of steel make it a popular choice for homes across the board, but do you know just how diverse this category is? Check out the style possibilities steel garage doors offer!

Classic Panel Garage Doors  Houston

The archetypical garage door most people know is the steel panel door. They’re the go-to option for so many contractors and homeowners alike because they’re affordable and accessible, and complement a wide variety of homes.

While you usually see the same door—often solid with short panels and painted white—repeated around neighborhoods, there are actually a lot of ways to make panel garage doors your own.

First off, decide whether you want short or long panels. On a standard single garage door, you’d get 16 short panels or 8 long ones. This affects how “busy” the door is, but it comes down to personal preference and you should look at the whole façade to determine what balances well with the house.

If you’d like to add windows to the top section, there are dozens of options ranging from plain to those with various grille, camping, and wrought iron patterns, available in rectangular and arched shapes. Finally, numerous standard and custom factory-applied paint finishes impart the long-lasting color of your choice. Panel garage doors may be ubiquitous, but they don’t have to be simple!


Carriage House Garage Doors

The popularity of carriage house garage doors continues to rise because they look great in some of the most popular architectural styles—farmhouse, Craftsman, traditional, colonial, etc.

They also give homeowners some extra design potential across the whole span of the door, thanks to their overlay patterns.

Garage Door Houston

Original carriage house doors were made of wood, of course, but now the majority are steel. They have the regular overhead operation of a modern garage door even though they’re based on the old-fashioned swing-out models.

The classic all-white look has tons of admirers, but if you’re looking to add some contrast to your exterior, opt for a two-toned finish with different base and overlay colors.

The “pop” from the street view will definitely get noticed!
