3 Garage Door Styles for the Savvy Homeowner
Posted on Aug 15, 2019
If you’ve ever seen a garage door that looks out of place on the front of a house, you know why it’s important to find a door that complements your home.
What’s in Style Right Now?
Replacing your garage door is one of the best home improvements to boost resale value and get a high return on investment. Curb appeal sells and your garage door makes up a major portion of the curb appeal of your home.
The types of garage doors we see selling best right now are steel doors with clean lines. People are moving away from traditional raised paneled doors and opting instead for unique and modern window shapes that suit the style of their homes.
Of course, house styles are wide-ranging and every homeowner has a different vision for how their garage door will complement their home.
Let’s look at a few considerations you can make when choosing a garage door. Then we’ll take a look at some of the great Amarr custom door styles.
Steel vs. Wood Garage Doors
This is a no-brainer. You can easily get the look and feel of wood combined with the strength and durability of steel. Steel garage doors last longer, look better, and can handle a lot more wear and tear. They won’t hold water or rot and best of all, you can still have them created with a full wood finish if that’s the style you prefer. It’s a more insulated garage door and well worth the small extra cost.
Customization & Options
Has your door been designed just for you? If not, you should know you deserve a door that fits your exact requirements and offers a variety of options. We’re not just talking about measurements, either. From colours and finishes to window styles, our doors are custom-built to fit your vision and match your home’s style.
