Modern Garage Door Ideas

Are you thinking of replacing your garage door? There are more options than ever … which makes it difficult for homeowners to pick the best garage door for their needs. We’ve rounded up our favorite modern garage ideas for homes to help you pick the right garage door for your needs.

Steel Garage Door

Steel is the most popular garage door type, and for good reason: It’s inexpensive, durable, and low maintenance. Homeowners will find steel doors in a range of styles, including many that look perfect for modern homes. While there are low-priced steel doors, we recommend a midrange door, because it will hold up better to dents, dings and scratches.

Aluminum Garage Doors 

Aluminum garage doors might look similar to steel ones, but there are key differences. Unlike steel, aluminum is naturally rust resistant. That’s one reason these doors are popular in coastal areas, where salt water is a concern. Aluminum doors are dent-prone since the material is lightweight. They are not a great pick for homeowners with young children, who might damage the doors in play, but are a strong contender for anyone interested in modern designs and materials.

Mixed Materials Garage Doors 

Mixed materials garage doors have become popular in recent years. Homeowners are choosing doors that combine clear or frosted glass with wood or metal. If you would like to use the garage as a workshop, spend time maintaining classic cars, or have another hobby that gives you plenty of tool time in the garage, then it makes sense to add in natural light. Mixed materials garage doors also make the garage look contemporary since blended materials are a hallmark of modern homes. These garage doors borrow from the pros and cons of their component materials, so you can evaluate whether a particular style is appropriate for your needs.

Fiberglass Garage Doors 

Fiberglass garage doors are affordable, durable, and available in a range of styles, including many modern styles. These doors can be made to mimic natural materials like wood, providing a stylish look at a price point that’s irresistible to new owners of fixer-upper homes, among others.

Solid Wood Garage Door 

Over the last couple of decades, there has been an explosion in wood garage door styles. High-quality wood doors come with a high price point, but for some, these are a must to express the style of the house. Wood doors do require more maintenance to look their best, but when well maintained they will last for decades.
No matter which type of garage door you choose, it must be professionally installed to work correctly. That’s where we come in. For over 50 years, we have helped Oklahoma City homeowners and companies protect their home or business with top-quality garage doors.

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.
