Should you choose a traditional garage door?

In many cases, people are directed that they should choose a garage door style that fits the look of the rest of the house. If you have a classic home, a traditional style is going to fit that aesthetic. Why is that? You could be renovating, improving protection and insulation, or trying to raise the home value – in any of these cases you are going to find a classic or traditionally styled garage door that brings everything together.

Garage doors may have begun as a plain and boring feature, but times have changed. Companies are looking to offer you something new, something that fits in with the rest of your house’s style.

What does it mean to have a classic or traditional style of house?

Many houses have one specific style that the house is built around. The traditional or classic style is a little different. What it does is pull together popular styles and make them into one unit. You can see this style in everything from a small bungalow to a cottage style 2-story home. Many of these homes are classics by diverse architectural trends being used. While that might seem strange, the overall blend is balanced and perfect for family life.

Go above and beyond by adding a set of windows to your door

If you’re looking for a way to make your garage doors unforgettable, and don’t think color and model is enough, that’s okay! You can also have custom windows added to your door for the complete package.

No matter your taste, Garaga has a window model that will suit you. You can tie the windows in with the style of the home to pull everything together into one unified home.

After you’ve chosen a model that you love, think about what kind of glass you prefer. You can go with clear glass or something a bit more unique like glue chip, satin, or Thermacrystal. If you really want a knockout choice, consider the horizontally lined windows.
