Choose the Right Garage Door Windows for You

Windows can make your garage door more attractive and functional. Garage door windows let in natural light, which in turn can make your garage a safer and more pleasant environment. Windows are also beautiful – from the inside and outside. Window size and type vary from one garage door to the next, so one of the questions to ask yourself when buying new garage doors is: which windows do I want for my garage?

Big or Small Garage Door Windows?

Big garage door windows let light, which is important for preventing accidents and finding things that might be lost. Smaller windows are harder to hit with baseballs and more difficult to see into, and that can make them a little more secure. If you’re worried about garage security but want a light-filled garage at the same time, there are options that can help you achieve both.

Frosted, Tinted, or Clear?

Frosted windows make it impossible to see what’s going on in your garage, so if you’re worried about garage security, frosted windows allow light to enter without compromising your security.

Tinted windows can achieve the same effect while also preventing some light from entering the garage. Tinted windows can help control the temperature of your garage, especially if your garage faces south or west and is exposed to sunlight at the hottest times of the day. Some homeowners also prefer tinted windows for aesthetic reasons, because they make the windows stand out more or less against the garage door itself.

Clear windows are your best bet if you want the maximum amount of sunlight during the day. If you’re worried about temperature control but would like clear windows, you have options.

Insulated Garage Door Windows?

Insulated windows prevent the sun from warming your garage without requiring a window tint. Insulated windows pair nicely with an insulated garage door like Overhead Door Company’s Thermacore models, which help keep your garage energy-efficient and comfortable even when temperatures outside are hot or cold.

Shatter-Resistant?

Do you have kids? Kids, who like to play sports maybe? Is your driveway frequently the site of games and neighborhood tournaments? If so, shatter-resistant glass can help prevent accidents and costly repairs. Ask your garage door contractor about installing shatter-resistant glass. On a side note, shatter-resistant glass can also be more secure than standard glass, if you’re worried about the possibility of intruders.

Friendly customer service. Bought a hard to find remote for an old garage door opener. Opener has 3 buttons so I can program both doors to it. Easy to find location right off 29th St.

I was given a very fair quote. A week later a tech came and installed. Then came back to install lock. Tech was very professional and polite. Spen time with me making adjustments to my liking. I totally recommend Overhead door to my fellow Okies.

Overhead Door did a great job. They got me on the schedule the next day and fixed my spring in 30 minutes or less. Joe was great, professional, and courteous. Awesome service, and he didn't tell me I needed extra materials like the previous garage door people that quoted me $575. Overhead Door told me a price over the phone and it didn't change. I'd recommend them every time.

Pleased with their services. Coil spring broke and door stopped working. Spoke to Ron, and less than 24 hrs later the technician had us up n running again. These guys did exactly what they promised to do, with no nonsense. I like that.
