When shopping for a garage door it is hard to know what style to go with. A great way to decide what is best for you is by what other people in a similar home to you are going with. Certain styles are popular for a reason! So, if you are stuck when looking for a garage door, it is sometimes best to see what other people have on their houses. Certain doors are popular for a few reasons such as appearance, and ease of maintenance.
Appearance-wise, it is best to consider the type of house you live in when you decide on doors. For instance, a Nantucket cottage-style home is probably not going to fit well with a hyper-modern style door but instead, one of our carriage-style doors would fit the style of your home better. The question of what is the most popular garage door doesn’t hit all the right context. Really, we are looking for what is the most popular door for your style of home. Even as I’m saying this though, I know that there is definitely one type of door that is by far the most popular. That is going to be the door from our classic collection. You know the ones. They are most often white in color, with long or short rectangular panels on the front of it. You can absolutely have windows in it or not, it just depends on your preferences. Of course, they come in colors other than white and you can even have them painted to your color preference! The classic doors are the most popular of any door because they are usually the most inexpensive of any other door, they are easy to customize when it comes to color and windows, and they are often the most readily available.
Classic garage doors are also some of the easiest when it comes to maintenance! It is so easy to take care of these doors. All you have to do for them is wash and wax them twice a year. Of course, if the door is extra dirty it is recommended that you wash it off, but if your door isn’t getting dirt and mud on it a lot then just wash it off with a car wash brush and some car wash soap. Some other popular doors are in our Avante, Modern Steel, and the coachman doors. Avante and Coachman have some extra maintenance required just because the Avante are glass which need to be washed more frequently, and the coachmen garage doors have a lot more design aspects to them that require more detailed cleaning.
When you are thinking of what door to buy based on what other people really love there are more factors to consider than just what most people buy. Take into consideration what kind house you live in, and what your level of ability for maintenance is.
