What Garage Door Color is Right for Your Home?

The color you choose for your garage door can have a big effect on the appearance and curb appeal of your home. Ultimately, the color of your garage door impacts your property’s value and can even impact your satisfaction with your house. Whether you’re buying a new garage door or upgrading your old one, here’s what you need to know.

Match the Color to Your Home

In general, the best bet is to coordinate the color of your garage door to the color of your home. This does not necessarily mean that you should make your garage door the same color as your home’s siding.

Consider the color of the roof, trim and siding. Sometimes, the best color for the garage is not the exact color of the house, but the color of the trim or shutters.

Look at Samples

If you’re thinking about painting your garage door, one of the first things you should do to find out if your garage door will look good with your house is to view samples. If you’re going to be painting the door, look at paint samples before choosing the final color.

If you’re buying a new garage door, ask your contractor to show you samples of garage door colors. Your garage door contractor should be able to produce samples of each color to help you decide what kind of door is right for your home.

Make Your Decision

Hold the color samples up to your home at various times of the day, to get a sense for how your garage door will look in different qualities of light. Light changes throughout the day, so viewing your garage door color samples at the end of the day, beginning of the day and at midday can help you decide how a paint color will truly look with the other features in your home.

Invite family members and people in your household to give their opinion, but be careful to avoid asking too many people for their thoughts. Having too many disparate opinions to listen to can only make the decision harder.

Work with Your Garage Door Contractor

Deciding what garage door color is right for you can be very difficult. Working with an experienced contractor can make the job easier. To find out more about choosing a new garage door for your house, contact a garage door contractor in your area. Your garage door contractor can give you different samples to look at, so you’ll know exactly which options are available to you.

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.
