Wood Garage Doors

Wood has definitely gained in popularity the past few years. While the classic wood-look garage door is still hot (check out these Carriage Style doors), there are more and more options that are integrating with glass…a delightful combination of classic & modern!

Glass Garage Doors

The contemporary or modern look is definitely a trend to consider incorporating in the exterior look of your home. A glass garage door is a perfect way to do this! Especially if you use your garage for working or other activity, a frosted glass garage door could be a great fit for you.

Lifestyle Screens

If you haven't seen these "Lifestyle Screens" that work with your current garage door, you're missing out! It's an incredible way of transforming your garage into an open, working space. They keep bugs, dirt, and other debris out while letting fresh air and bright light in. Learn more about Lifestyle Screens in our blog.garage door trends

Garage Door Insulation

Home sustainability has been, and will continue to be, a popular trend for 2017. One way to make your garage more sustainable is by installing insulation to your garage door. This presents a great option for climate control and could help lower energy costs. Find out how to insulate your garage door here

Garage Door Color

You may be surprised how the color of your garage door can change the look of your home! You should actually avoid using the same accent colors that you have used for the rest of your home and opt for something that stands out a bit more. Deep red or green could give you the pop you're looking for! Gray, while neutral, is also a hot color for 2017.
