If you havent been in the market for a new garage door in a while, you might be surprised to learn that the white, aluminum garage doors typical of most suburban houses are not your only option. Far from it!
At The Hamilton Parker Company, we offer many styles, brands, and customizations for your garage door design, so you can make sure your garage door compliments the architecture and style of your home. Weve rounded up some of our clients favorite garage door design options for you to consider when choosing a new garage door.
Garage Door Material
Steel garage doors can help with home insulation. Steel garage doors also offer longer warranties than most wood garage doors and can even last a lifetime with proper maintenance. Wood garage doors are highly customizable and add warmth to your space. However, you should be prepared for some minor maintenance and upkeep common of most wood products.
Plus, you dont necessarily have to choose! We can add a wood overlay to a steel garage door to give you the energy-efficient benefits of a steel garage door with the look of a wood garage door.
Garage Door Colors
Many people feel limited in choosing a garage door color because they think it has to match the color of their front door. If youd like to make your garage door appear less prominent, you should choose the same color as the color of your house. If youd like your garage door to stand out, you can match your garage door color to the color of your front door, shutters, or trim.
When trying to choose a garage door color, we recommend visiting a garage door showroom. This will allow you to compare garage door models side by side and get an idea of what style garage door youre interested in.
One of the biggest benefits of visiting a showroom is knowing that youre going to get the exact color that you want for your garage door. If you try to choose a garage door color online, you might end up with the wrong color due to monitor color variance.
