Garage Door

A beautiful set of garage doors can really boost the curb appeal of a home. There’s no “right answer” for the best type of door because the color, style, and size of your home and garage will all play a role in helping you select new doors that make you smile when you turn into the driveway. Because we understand the importance of garage doors to your home, the team at Cal’s Garage Doors is happy to explain a few of the most common styles and tops manufacturers that we carry so you can get inspired to find the perfect doors for your own property.

Modern garage door styles and materials

When it comes to new garage doors, there are about four basic styles to choose from: doors that swing outwards, those that swing up, those that roll up, or doors that slide to one side. All these styles can be made from a wide variety of different materials, including wood and aluminum, although at Cal’s Garage Doors, we typically recommend durable and lightweight aluminum to our customers.

Throughout the Bay Area, by far the most popular option for garage doors San Jose, CA, is the sectional roll-up garage door style in a variety of materials and colors. For a distinctive look, or to prevent the door from impacting ceiling clearance, then swing out carriage house doors are an excellent option.

We understand how important it is for our clients to choose doors that closely match the architectural style of their home. For example, if you own a Craftsman bungalow, then a swing-out door could be the perfect match, since they closely resemble the types of garage doors found in early Craftsman homes. Even if real swing-out doors aren’t a practical option for your space, then you can opt for a traditional roll-up sectional garage door that’s made to resemble a swing-out door right down to the faux strap hinges on the sides.
