Choosing a Garage Door for Your Home

Choosing a Garage Door for Your Home

When you are ready to replace your Garage Door there are so many choices. This was not the case just a few years ago.  Garage Door manufacturers have heard the voice of home owners who want more than a residential version of a commercial door.  Now your Garage Door can be an enhancement to your home not just a necessary compromise.

Wood doors are still an option but lack some of the advantages of newer materials.  In order for wood Garage Doors to maintain the style and beauty of wood, it requires moving up to some high end carriage house style doors.  They can be a bit pricey but there is lots of flexibility in design as each door is custom built.

Steel doors have come a long way.  As demand has increased for Garage Doors with more style, manufacturers have responded with a variety of design configurations.  True, there is not the flexibility of custom wood carriage house doors but it may surprise you how many options you may have that can fit your taste. Several are now available with the carriage house look without problems like warping, and rotting.  Pre paint options can match the multi colors and multi directions of wood doors.

Aluminum and glass Garage Doors have become very popular on some modern architectural design houses.  Not only are they available in basic aluminum colors but most are offered in anodized, dark bronze anodized, and now in an unlimited palate of powder coated colors. The glazing can be done in a many different glass options for privacy and beauty, and you can even get insulated glass.

We recently added a line of real copper doors for a distinctive look that can add so much to the right home.

Vinyl Garage Doors can meet the demands of some costal applications where salt and spray may be too much for steel and wood doors. They are however, limited in design options.

We buy from a variety of manufactures but choose those based on quality, availability and service.

No matter what your tastes, you can be sure to find something that will add to your home’s value and beauty at reasonable prices.  We have a new showroom in Bellevue where you can see exactly what can be done for your home.
