The mere mention of garage doors used to send shivers down the spines of architects, builders and homeowners, conjuring visions of raised panel monolithic eye – sores. It always seemed garage doors were a one – style fits – all item, whether your house was new construction or historic renovation, country estate, waterfront retreat, or a big city townhouse. And it increasing seemed houses were being built with bigger and bigger garages taking up more and more of their profiles. These days however, our thinking about a garage’s most important visual component is changing, and manufacturers now offer a smorgasbord of doors dressed to the nines. Today’s garage doors sport a level of style and refinement usually reserved for grand entrances and fine cabinetry.
Most garage facades are mostly door. This produces skewed proportions and problems with profile – or used to. Now, the garage door had become something you might want to actually look at – a focal point. Doors make statements, and garage doors are no exception. Garage doors cover a home’s biggest opening and this opening often faces the street, so if we’re talking curb appeal, few single elements of a home can have more sizable impact.
