Stamped vs. Overlay Garage Doors

New year, new home—right? If you’re looking for a way to enhance your home’s exterior, you may be considering garage door replacement. Carriage style doors are a great option because they are unique and can add visual interest. But what type of carriage door should you install? There are two main types: overlay and stamped.

What’s the difference between them and which one is right for you?

Stamped & Overlay Carriage Garage Doors

Shaped from steel and embossed with a finish (like wood grain), stamped garage doors are beautiful and long-lasting. They have a design “stamped” into the face of the door. Here are some examples:

Overlay garage doors feature steel or wood panels that are placed on top of the original door to create an appearance of depth and subtle sophistication. Different materials can be used—for instance, carriage doors made with an overlay can be constructed with flush steel panels and wood overlays.

Here are some examples:

Although stamped carriage garage doors offer less in design options, they tend to be more affordable and more durable. If cost and durability are your top priorities, consider a stamped door. Other than that, both options are beautiful and can add distinct character to your home.
