What Garage Door Style Will Look Best on My Home?

Garage doors aren’t usually something you think about until they are a visual burden to your home or need to be replaced. If you are replacing your garage door in Oklahoma City and searching for popular garage door options, we can help! There are a number of key factors that will impact which garage door design will look best for the style of your home.

Choosing a Color

Most garage doors are neutral colors, with lighter tints of white, beige, and grey being the most common. Bolder neutrals, like dark greys or blacks, can offer an eye-catching garage door color option. For a really unique look, choose a bold color, like sapphire blue, deep cherry red, midnight navy, mustard yellow or forest green, to accent your home. You can match your garage door color to accents around the home (like pots and patio furniture), your front door, or other accents on the home (like the shutters).

Selecting a Material Type

Material types are going to hold up differently and provide different cost and quality benefits. But, materials will also produce different-looking garage doors. The most common options are:

Considering Opening Types

How your garage door opens can also be part of the overall garage door look you want. There are several options, though the sectional garage door is by far the most common.

  • Sectional/panel garage doors: retracted with an above opener, separating into panels. The most common garage door type in the US.
  • Hinged/swing out garage doors: Carriage style garage doors and doors on hinges are often found on much larger homes and some owners choose to keep the simplicity and classic style in place.
  • Tilt-up garage doors: A single-piece garage door that opens on a tilt, either remaining outside the garage like a canopy or retracting into the garage.
  • Roll up garage doors: Typically used in commercial settings, the roll up door is often manually operated and locked from the outside when closed.

Additional Features and Details

Fancy hinges, window details, handles, and paneling can all offer a variety of visual appeal that complements your home. Consider the special elements and design details that will work well with the rest of your house for maximum curb appeal. While you don’t want to get carried away with overbearing details, a few cool elements can really add style to the overall look.

Matching the Overall Design Style

Of course, the overall style of the door should match your house. You might want to consider a contemporary style with a simplistic, straight-line design. Older homes will more classic features are likely to pair better with a traditional garage door style. You can check out an overview of garage door styles here.

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.
