Choosing a Color

If your desire is to draw less attention to the door, choose a color that matches or coordinates with the siding on your home.

Ask your garage door dealer for samples to hold them up against your house, to ensure the color you choose is right for you.

Which Glass Type?

Carriage style garage doors have windows that can have one of two types of glass: either clear or “obscure” glass. Clear glass makes it easy to see into and out of the windows in the garage, while “obscure” glass is foggy, thus preventing someone from seeing into or out of the garage through the windows. Some people choose obscure glass to provide more security, while others like clear glass so they can use their windows to see out. It’s up to you!

It wouldn’t be a carriage style door without fancy hardware! The hardware choices at Overhead Door Company include decorative hinges, pull handles, lift handles and decorative knockers. Decorative hinges make your garage door stand out, so choose carefully. The hinges will be a noticeable part of your door!
