Texas Garage Door Style Guide (Pt. 1)

It’s hard to stay inside when the summertime sunshine calls out. From inviting family and friends over for a fourth of July BBQ to spending time in your open garage working on personal projects (such as restoring that old BMW convertible or Ford Mustang), you will find yourself spending more time outdoors. In turn, this means that more attention is being paid to your home and its curb appeal. Some homeowners might be taking full advantage of the beautiful weather and overall feeling of freedom and good cheer by selling their home. In this case, your home’s aesthetic is doubly important.

Whatever it is that has you thinking about your home’s curb appeal, one of the most important aspects to focus on is your garage door. Garages are a hot commodity for the housing market. Not only do they provide a safe place to store cars during a storm and a unique entryway for the home, but they can also add that wow factor that many homeowners are looking for.

If you are looking to replace your old garage door or are installing a garage into a new home build, you will want to choose something that will compliment your home and boost its curb appeal. With so many options to choose from, it can be really difficult to figure out which style works best for you. Thankfully, the dedicated garage door specialists at Action Garage Door have created this nifty Texas Garage Door Style Guide to help you choose the best option for your home.

Their Classical collection is full of elegant garage doors that were designed to max out on energy efficiency and safety. With such high quality and attention to detail given, Amarr Classica has become a trusted brand name in garage doors.

Classical Garage Door Styles

Classica garage doors were created with the intent of being able to fit the style of just about everyone. They offer streamlined styles that fit both modern homes and also more traditional or vintage homes. Classica garage doors can be either simple yet elegant or decorative and eye-catching by adding additional features such as windows. Here are the different styles you can choose from in the Classica collection:

  • The Lucern model features a double arch top section and optional blue ridge handles.
  • The Santiago model features a closed arch top section accented with blue ridge handles and strap hinges.

All of Classica’s garage doors can be customized to match your home’s needs and style. For example, Classica offers over 500 different color choices to choose from. They also offer different sizes and style windows, allowing gorgeous natural light to pour into your garage.
