Garage Door Windows: An Option Worth Considering

Garages no longer have to be the dark spots in a home. Now, it’s possible to let the light shine in to brighten up space and still have the privacy and security that you value.

Windows also have a place in commercial applications and industrial parks, as stylish and serviceable options for the myriad uses that garage doors perform.
Rather than being simple add-ons with a single purpose, the size, style and type of window can serve a unique purpose, make a visual statement or add new value to your home or business. In addition to garage door windows, there are other options for glass, including full glass doors, that open an entirely new world of possibilities.

Why not have a look at the new styles that are available in garage door fashion?

Traditional, Contemporary or Uniquely Different

With the Overhead Door’s™ design tool, the options for garage door windows are virtually limitless. Our virtual design tool allows homeowners to visualize the way a new garage door will look, perfecting the design until it has just the right style and proportions.

Distinctive glass options are available for nearly all doors, whether traditional wood, steel, Thermacore or Durafirm. Although clear glass is standard, there are distinctive choices in obscure glass for an additional fee. Upgrades include tempered glass, shatter-resistant Lexan, Solar Bronze or Insulated Glass.

Glass panels can extend the entire width of the garage door, or windows may be stacked vertically for an artistic, contemporary look. Windows are suitable for almost all types of garage doors, and they add function as well as beauty to the appearance of the door.

Things to Consider When Choosing Windows

The selection of window style for a garage door is as important as the choice of windows for the home itself. While one of the main reasons for installing glass is the aesthetic appeal of the design, you should also consider the garage door’s orientation and visibility from the street.

Windows not only allow light into space; they can also open your garage to public view, and too much visibility might be a security issue. Ask your Overhead Door design consultant about the best ways to balance practical concerns with design sensibility.

As a general rule, garage door windows are located slightly above eye level, and typically they are kept small enough that the openings do not encourage or even allow human access. However, there are exceptions, especially when considering a special-use door or a garage door designed for commercial use.

At Overhead Door Company of Oklahoma City™, we will be pleased to work with you to design the door that is perfect for your needs. Why not schedule an appointment to review our wide array of options?

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.

I had called overhead doors because there was something wrong with my door. I had no clue what was wrong. The door technician they sent out was Amazing. He was fast pace,clean,organized and also showed/told me what all he was doing. Derick S. Is the reason why I will keep going back to them. He made sure he cleaned up his mess before leaving, he really went above and beyond. Request Derick for your service.
