A lot of people choose their garage door without giving much thought to how it would affect the overall aesthetic of their house. This should not be as garage doors occupy about 30% of the entire front portion of the house. If it does not fit well with your house design, then you end up with a very awkward looking house in your hands. While it may be time consuming to think and decide on which type of door to take, the result would be a much more eye-pleasing than if you just pick a door randomly for installation. The good thing about all this is that there are so many kinds of doors that you can choose from and that a lot of them could potentially look very nice with your home. The most basic things that you can look into are materials and kinds of doors. Normally, this should be enough for you to choose the perfect one that would fit just right for your home.
Garage door materials
Garage doors are constructed using different materials. The most common are wood, steel, aluminum, and glass. Wooden doors are perfect for traditional home designs. Steel on the other hand is the most durable and well suited for contemporary houses. Aluminum allows for a steel-look without being as heavy and expensive as the latter. Glass garage doors on the other are the ones perfect for homes near beaches as they are resistant to salt-water corrosion. Moreover, each panel is enclosed in an aluminum frame and is not subjected to dents as the steel. The glass garage door prices are also not as high as the steel or the wooden ones.
When it comes to the kind or type of doors, you can look into overhead garage doors. These are doors that open by traveling through a garage door track. As the name suggests, it rests at the overhead portion of the garage when open. Another is the rollup door which also has tracks but it rolls above the door opening. This is perfect if you have a small or low garage. Lastly, you have the swing-out carriage-house doors. These doors open by swinging outside. It is perfect if you need to free the ceiling for other purposes.
Whatever material or type you choose, make sure that it fits well with the overall look and feel of your house.
