By Blog Master on 23 Feb 2021 In

If you’re looking for a unique garage door design for your new garage door, then look no further. Each one has a clever and crafty design feature that does not look anything like the typical cookie-cutter exterior of a conventionally designed unappealing garage door. And you don’t have to scrimp on structural strength or quality to get this great garage door design features either.

According to Jim Norman of Overhead Door Company of Central Jersey “Garage doors are available in both wood and steel in a virtually unlimited array of designs and a custom door shop can build doors to match any architectural style you desire.” That means no matter what you want your garage door to look like, it’s going to be as strong and well-built as any other door on the market.

Garage roll-up doors don’t really have to be placed in the garage. In the case of a glass garage door, it can be used as a window for a great room or master bedroom. The entire wall opens when you desire some fresh air but when it’s closed, it’s a beautiful wall of glass. Glass doors are made from super strong safety glass so you don’t have to be worried about them breaking easily either.

Carriage House Garage Doors:

If you’re looking to go back in time with your design, then a carriage house garage door is the right choice for you. Most of these garage doors look like an actual swinging gate but rise up like a single fixed garage door panel instead. While you can get a true carriage door for your garage that swings open from vertical hanging hinges, it’s not a good idea if you plan on parking a car in there. They tend to open and close when even the slightest breeze is blowing and could easily damage your car.

An all-wood garage door used to be the norm, but today, it’s reserved for higher-end designs and architecture. All-wood garage doors are typically made from fine woods and are seldom painted. They are finished with a fine stain and clear coat of polyurethane for protection to showcase their rich grains and patterns. Many all wood doors have architectural appealing windows and mosaics built-in for added detail and sophistication.
