Why Choose Barn-Style Garage Doors

Barn-style garage doors are popular among homeowners who want a homey or rustic look. These bold garage doors will generate plenty of curb appeal if you’re thinking of selling your home, but that’s not the only reason to fall for barn-style garage doors. Learn the best reasons to choose these garage doors now.

1. Distinctive Design Sets Your Home Apart

If you are looking for a way to set your home apart from others in your neighborhood, these garage doors could do the trick. Barn-style garage doors, sometimes known as carriage-style doors, have a distinctive design often featuring a raised X-shape. While home of mid-century, Craftsman, or bungalow homes are often drawn to these garage doors, barn-style doors can enhance any style of home.

2. Let in Natural Light 

Many barn-style garage doors have windows, which let natural light into the garage. If you use your garage as a hobby space, you will appreciate the additional natural light. Depending on your location, you may save on garage electricity use due to the ample natural light.

Barn-style garage doors that don’t have windows are also available. If you value privacy or have light-sensitive equipment stored in your garage, you might prefer a solid garage door.

3. Add Value to Your Home

Garage doors are a tried and true investment for homeowners who want to add value to their property. Doors add visual appeal and pay for themselves (or better) when the home is sold. Barn style garage doors are available in wood and steel. Both of these materials are durable, high-quality, and sure to add value to your home.

If you’re torn between wood and steel, consider that a wood garage door will need regular maintenance. The door must be stained or painted to protect against the elements, usually as often as every few years. Exposed to water, wood can rot. Steel will not rot when exposed to water, nor will it need to be repainted regularly.
Wood does have a charm that steel does not, and it may be a historically appropriate choice for an older home.

4. Can Be Retrofitted Into Your Garage 

Barn-style garage doors look like they swing open, but that’s a trick of the eye. You will find barn-style doors that roll up, slide open, or swing out – just select what works best for you. Once you’ve chosen your ideal garage door, our contractors can retrofit your current garage to ensure a perfect fit. Ease of installation keeps your costs down, making this an attractive and affordable home renovation.

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.
