Nothing says “Welcome Home” like a garage door that operates as beautifully as it looks. Residential garage doors continue to be a reflection of the homeowner’s personality. Whether your home is contemporary, traditional or modern, you are sure to find a style to match your home’s architectural style. Here are four garage door trends you can look forward to this year:
Technology, Meet Garage Door
“There’s an app for that” now includes the world of garage doors, which can be equipped to accept commands, such as open/close from your smartphone. In both iOS and Android compatible smartphones, under “lifestyle,” you’ll find a large assortment of garage door apps. These apps, in combination with your smart garage door opener, all share one thing in common; they want to make your life easier and more productive. Control and monitor your door from anywhere using your smartphone or tablet!
Environmentally Friendly Doors
The latest trends in garage doors not only look great, they are also environmentally friendly and energy efficient. You can find doors manufactured from recycled materials, such as aluminum, while others feature newer materials such as vinyl that resists moisture, cracking and decay. If you prefer a maintenance free door, with the elegant look of real wood, you may want to look at composite wood garage doors. Doors with high levels of insulation can significantly reduce your energy consumption.
Modern Style Doors
Traditionally, garage doors have been manufactured using materials, such as wood, aluminum and steel. But not anymore! If you want a garage door as unique as you are, then modern-style doors, like full-view aluminum and frosted glass may be just what you’re looking for. These beautiful new designs offer the same long lasting reliability and work with most standard garage doors.
