Consider The Curb Appeal of Your Garage Door

Your garage door represents a significant portion of the facade of your home. As a result, it has a lot to do with the curb appeal of your home, for good or for bad. Let your friends at Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Oklahoma City, OK give you some topics to consider in evaluating the curb appeal of your garage door.

Garage Door Style

The first choice that should be considered is the style of your home and how your garage door can enhance or detract from this look. How would you characterize the overall look of your home’s exterior? Is it modern and sleek architecture with sharp angles and clean lines? Your overhead door should probably match this look with a geometric look and appropriate materials. We’ll discuss materials below.

Is your home’s exterior style more rustic. A carriage style door may work well with this look. A classic home probably wouldn’t benefit from an overly modern looking garage door.

Another general style consideration is whether or not to have windows. It may seem like a small consideration, but like any of these other topics, it can greatly alter the overall appearance and curb appeal of your home. There’s no real guidelines on this one, you kind of have to use your instincts.

Building Material


Modern garage doors are built from a wide array of materials. As such, it’s important to think about how the different materials will tie into the overall facade of your home. Garage door models come in a variety of styles and materials. 

Recently, wood has been making a comeback as a popular garage door construction material. For a long time, manufacturers and customers were going away from wood to more weather-durable materials like steel and aluminum. However, new advancements in manufacturing processes and sealant types have eliminated many of these concerns. Wooden carriage style doors can add a rustic touch to your home’s exterior.

Metals such as steel or aluminum are still very popular building materials for garage doors. Because of their long-time use, they fit nicely with classic style homes.

Believe it or not, glass construction has gained popularity for more modern looking home. Large glass panels surrounded by steel frames give a very sleek, clean look that will fit in with a modern home. They also have the benefit of allowing a large amount of natural light into your home. These doors are typically made with frosted glass to allow for security and privacy.

Color Scheme


It’s important to consider the color scheme of your home and how your garage door fits into it. A typical plain white door may work just fine for a generic look. However, if your home has more muted earth tone colors, the white door will have a different effect. It could serve as an interesting highlight, or a distraction to the overall look of the home. You’ll want to try several different color palettes with samples before proceeding with any painting.

Once you’re settled on the style, material, and color scheme, give Neighborhood Garage Door Service of Oklahoma City, OK a call and we can help you pick out the right door to enhance the curb appeal of your overhead door. Don’t delay, call us today and one of our professional customer service representatives will get you started!

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
