4 Things to Know About Traditional Steel Garage Doors

Reputable garage door companies have been making their products out of steel for a long time, but just because steel is an older material doesn’t mean that it’s not impressive! Steel is one of the preferred garage door materials for a reason. Homeowners love steel for its durability, longevity, strength, and its practical benefits.

Traditional Steel garage doors offer a variety of designs and color options to complement your home.

The patterns on your garage door will depend partially on the height and width of the door. Our garage door installer will help you decide which pattern and dimensions are right for your home.

2. Colors

Traditional Steel garage doors are available in white, almond, desert tan, taupe, brown, walnut and mission oak. In other words, you can pick a door color that coordinates with your home.

Sometimes picking a color is hard. One thing that we encourage homeowners to ask themselves is: how much do you want your garage door (or doors) to stand out? The more contrast between your garage door and the color of your house, the more your garage doors will stand out.

Steel garage doors are low maintenance, environmentally friendly, and provide sound insulation.

The closer that the color of your garage is to the color of the rest of your house, the less your garage doors will stand out. You decide! Don’t forget that our garage doors come with an embossed wood grain texture that makes them look almost like real wood. This enhances the color of the door and adds visual interest you’ll love.

3. Window Styles You’ll Love

Our Traditional Steel garage doors have windows in a variety of styles and shapes, to add unique beauty to your garage door. We know that our consumers need many glass options to make their garage doors exactly what they’re looking for. Glass options include:

  • Clear glass
  • Obscure (foggy) glass
  • Bronze (tinted) glass

4. Further Benefits of Steel Garage Doors:

Low Maintenance

Steel garage doors are renowned for their minimal maintenance requirements. Unlike wood, they don’t need regular refinishing or repainting to preserve their aesthetics. A simple cleaning routine is usually sufficient to keep them looking great.


Opting for steel garage doors aligns with eco-conscious choices. Steel is an environmentally friendly material that can be recycled when it reaches the end of its life cycle. This means you can enjoy the benefits of a durable garage door without contributing to environmental waste.

Sound Insulation

If you’re a homeowner who values peace and quiet, steel garage doors provide excellent sound insulation. This feature is especially appreciated by those with home studios, “garage bands,” or living spaces adjacent to the garage. Steel’s sound-reducing properties help create a quieter and more comfortable living environment.

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.
