Garage Doors from Overhead Door Co. of Indianapolis & Muncie
Residential garage doors vary in style, panel design and size.
There are three main styles of garage doors—traditional, carriage and modern.
- Traditional garage doors include the standard sectional garage doors on many homes (long or short panel). A lot are white in color, but beige and brown are also common.
- Carriage garage doors can be a form of traditional doors. They are ornate with decorative handles and hinges but can also be more minimalist and modern.
- Modern garage doors don’t feature handles hinges and usually have a flush panel design. Overhead Door’s modern garage doors are aluminum.
The four main types of garage door panel designs include:
- Raised: Raised panels—the classic style of garage doors—offer depth and distinction and complement nearly any type of home.
- Recessed: Recessed panels are the opposite of raised panels, although the two have a similar look.
- Flush: Flush, or flat, panels are flat and slightly textured, and they can be used to complement a home’s architecture without drawing too much attention to the door itself.
- Framed: Rail and stile panels are smooth panels surrounded by a frame, and offer a traditional style.
Some houses have a two-car garage while others have smaller, single-car garages that require smaller doors. Standard garage door sizes are whole-width increments starting at 8 feet wide and going to 20 feet wide. Some series have sizes smaller than that. Standard heights are 7 feet and 8 feet tall. Other heights and widths are also available and vary by individual series. We can install multiple smaller doors to accommodate a large space.
Garage doors are constructed as either single layer, double layer or triple layer. The most economical choice, single layer doors do not have any insulation. Double layer garage doors are insulated. Triple layer garage doors have sandwich construction, which consists of insulation between two materials, usually steel. The extra layer provides better energy efficiency and soundproofing.
