Your Style Guide to Garage Doors

Posted on January 18th, 2018 by Richard Hill

If you’re looking to build a custom garage for your home, you want to make it your own. Knowing how to convey your preferences to a professional garage builder is going to help them understand how to create something that matches your vision exactly. One aspect of a custom garage that some of our clients find difficult to explain are garage doors. There are three main categories of garage doors you should know.

Traditional Raised-Panel

Traditional raised-panel garage doors are those that have raised rectangular panels that checker the face of the door. You can’t go wrong with this style of garage door, as they provide your garage with a sleek, classic look that matches nearly everything.

Generally, this style of garage door is made from wood and has some sort of metal accent.
