When it's time to replace your garage door, choosing which kind can be difficult. Overhead Door offers a wide selection, but how do you know which one is right for you? We've made it easy with this quick reference guide to discuss the different types of residential garage doors.


Steel residential garage doors are one of the most common varieties. Not only are they durable and easy to maintain, they're very cost-effective. Overhead Door offers several models, including carriage house styles. Additionally, these doors come in various colors, so you don't have to repaint your house when the time comes to replace your garage door.

Our modern designs combine glass panels on an aluminum frame to provide an aesthetic look that will make the neighbors jealous.


If you want a traditional look, wood doors are a great way to accomplish your goal. Genuine wooden garage doors are absolutely beautiful, though they are fairly high-maintenance. The doors arrive unprimed, which allows you to stain or paint them the color of your choosing. It's a lovely alternative to standard metal garage doors.

The thick vinyl coating gives the appearance of painted wood, without all of the upkeep. Additionally, vinyl doors handle dents and scratches better than standard steels doors.


If you love the look of wood garage doors but don't like the maintenance, consider fiberglass doors. Fiberglass is extremely light and can withstand dents. Best of all, there's no rust or wood-eating insects to content with! These doors come in a variety of panel and window styles, so you're able to create a customized design.

Residential Garage Selection: 3 Topics To Help You Choose

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Tue, May 05, 2015 @ 12:32 PM

Residential Garage Selection

When it comes to choosing a garage door for your home, one might think that it can be as simple as 1, 2, 3, but that is not always the case. At Overhead Door, we want to make choosing your residential garage door selection as easy as possible. Here are some pointers for a better understanding of what selections you have (pricing, basic material, and styles).

Stock Doors

Stock doors are some of your basic doors. No matter the material you choose, a basic garage door comes without significant panel design and without glass. If you choose to make upgrades, your cost, of course, will go up from there. Stock doors generally cost around $575, without installation fees and are very common in residential garage selections, but everyone wants to have their own little “touch” on their home. If you are one of those, then semi-custom doors or custom doors are for you.


Semi-Custom Doors

Semi-custom doors are one step up from your stock doors, but instead of having your basic door you can have panel styles, glass inserts, and designs of your own. Homeowners select from a kit of styles to create the door that best suits their home. These types of doors offer more options such as more wood selections, panel designs, and different glass inserts or designer-look glass options. Semi-custom wood doors usually range from $1,500 to $3,000, not including installation or primer. Steel doors always come primed and with a baked-on finish suitable for painting.  Prices for mid-range steel doors run from around $400 to $1,200 not including installation. If you still want more, then your next step would be to look into custom doors.


Custom Doors

Custom doors come with custom colors, finishes, panel designs, grooved panel faces, insulation, and top-quality materials, up to architectural design. We like to refer to this level of wood as the, “carriage house selection,” because it is such a high quality of wood. It holds up longer (some up to five years) and is intended to enhance the design quality of the home. If you are one that knows exactly what you would like for your garage door design, then it can be drawn architecturally and submitted to the company. Two-car garage steel doors in this range typically cost anywhere from $595 to $1,500, not including installation. If you are looking for the more customized door, then you are looking at $3000 apiece.
