Garage Door Design Trends

garage door design trends

Here are the top five garage door design trends to look for when considering replacing a weathered, damaged, or risky door. This is one of the most valuable home improvement projects to complete. This year’s annual Cost vs. Value Report reveals that an upscale garage door replacement – high-tensile-strength steel with two coats of factory-applied paint that is foam insulated to minimum R-12 – costing approximately $3,550 delivered an estimated $3,502 when the house sold. That’s a 98.6% return on investment.

Oversized Doors

Garages must be usable. That has never been more apparent than now as more people, both women and men, gravitate toward bigger vehicles. Even people who own smaller cars, but who frequently strap something to their roofs, have a need for oversized garages. That means installing 8-feet-tall rather than 7-feet-tall garage doors; the garage may need to be renovated to accommodate for this though. In some valley neighborhoods, typically those with property, detached oversized garages are being the norm. There are even those tall enough to house a motorhome.

Bold Colors

Gone are the days of neutral house colors, so don’t be afraid to try something new, adding interest to your curb appeal. Choose a shade that compliments the rest of your home’s exterior and that, if applicable, your HOA approves of. Black is one of the leading design trends. If black isn’t for you, most garage door manufacturers offer a wide-range of colors to help you find just the right shade of paint. You can also paint the door yourself by purchasing supplies from your local home improvement store.

Clean Lines

There is no shortage of stylish materials to choose from when the time to replace your garage door arrives. If you’re looking to turn heads, however, then nothing beats a full-view aluminum garage door. This door type allows for the infiltration of natural light, which is customizable; you choose different styles and tints/frosting. Aluminum full-view doors are incredibly appealing to business owners. Several coffee shops and restaurants have recently opened in Downtown Chandler featuring full-view doors.


Homeowners are increasingly choosing insulation with a high R-value for improved thermal efficiency. Insulation helps mitigate heat loss during the winter and heat gain during the summer. An insulated garage door is also more resistant to damage. Another advantage to insulation is noise reduction; an insulated door operates much quieter than a non-insulated one. For increased effectiveness, experts recommend paying a little extra for polyurethane insulation. Low U-values are also indicative of how well an insulation material will perform.

Smart Technology

WIFI connected openers are quickly replacing traditional openers. These openers allow you to easily monitor and control your garage door. You can also automate your entire home using an IFTTT applet (a fee may be required). For example, you can set your lights to turn on as the door is opening or set the door to open/close automatically when you’re within certain perimeters. To take advantage of these features, after the opener is installed, simply download and program the LiftMaster MyQ® app on your phone.

They sent someone out right away at 4:30pm on a Monday. Tre was our technician and did an amazing job getting our door back to working condition without breaking the bank. I will always suggest them to anyone who asks.

For the past few months, my garage door would not shut. It will close halfway get stuck and the motor would bring it back. Not to mention it sounded like a blender filled with nails while closing and opening. Finally decided to get it to check out and these guys were the first to respond. Had an appointment sent within 15 min. A technician named Jimmy came over the next day and got it all done. My garage door never sounded so silent and go down as smooth once new parts were added. Definitely will be recommending these guys!

This company is very responsive, contacted them on a Sunday night and they replied right away.  Then set an appointment at a time convenient for me.

Very polite and easy to work with.  Travis, the owner, is hands-on.

I had an extremely positive experience with this company, and I have to praise Michelle in the front office for her patience and customer service attitude.

When my 20-year-old Liftmaster garage door opener began to fail, I spent a ridiculous amount of time researching new openers and my options.  The logicboard wasn’t working – so the unit still moved the door up and down, but responded only to the wall switch and not the remote. While that was inconvenient, I had time to look around.

After months of exploration and repeated estimates, when I finally decided on a model, they didn’t have it in stock. Michelle quickly located one and offered an appointment the next business day.

The technician who showed up, Zach, was relatively new, but assured me that he had great training and mentoring by the company.  And so far, I am very pleased with the work.  I thought he was polite, clean, well-skilled, and astute — and at my request, also diagnosed and repaired a squealing in the door.  The door is quiet and the alignment is good.

I would definitely have them back for any additional work! (which I hope doesn’t happen soon!)

When it was time to change the garage door, we called these pros for help, and they responded to our needs immediately.

The team arrived exactly when they said they would, and explained everything they were going to do, along with different options for me. It took them an hour to complete the job, and it was amazing! Very precise and clean!!!

Will use them again for all my garage door needs!

Honestly, I haven’t had such great customer service in years. From the first phone call to the minute they left I never felt pressured, a hard sell or that I was being sold something I didn’t “need”. So informative and honest. So refreshing!! The background checks their employees for safety. They text/email your appointment time, when the technician is on the way, and the estimate. Makes the whole experience a positive one. Thanks, Travis, Chris, and Cody. Keep up the great work. You prove that great customer care is still important.

We were so thrilled with the excellent quality of service and quick response we received yesterday. Jimmy Tafoya was quick, honest, and pleasant. The door went off the rails so we called on a Saturday afternoon for emergency service. He fixed the problem in 2 hours. We thought we would need a new door it was so screwed up but he fixed it very well at a lower cost. We are very thankful.

I wish this company provided other random services because I would use them for anything!

I sent a request for a quote via Yelp at 3:56 pm and received a reply from Travis at 3:57 pm. He said he could have a technician to my home between 4-6 pm That Day! Like within the next 2 hours. Before I committed, though I had to ask a few questions. First, could the technician please wear a mask and gloves because we have high-risk people in our home during Covid? Answer – no problem at all. Second, could you provide a ballpark estimate based on my description of the problem? Yup!

I then received a text with my appointment confirmation, and 20 minutes before the technician arrived, I received a lengthy text with a photo, background check information, and instructions on what to expect when he arrives. Then Jay called personally to let me know to expect him.

When he arrived, he looked at the job, gave me an estimate, and went to work. 20 min later, he was done, with no extra hidden fees. He accepted my credit card verbally so that we didn’t have any close contact.

The garage works perfectly!
