Need a New Garage Door? A Look at What’s Trending in 2018

1. Insulation

Conserving energy while keeping your house comfortable during all seasons is crucial. Nowadays, you can insulate your garage to ensure it’s comfortable year-round. For example, an attached garage should have an R-value of 12 or higher to keep it and adjoining rooms more temperate. If your garage is detached, an R-value of 10 ensures the interior temperature doesn’t drop too much in the winter.

2. Windows

Adding windows to your garage has several advantages. It makes the interior seem bigger and brighter, and it also adds beauty to the design. 2018 will see more garage doors with windows — whether you want to arrange them horizontally or vertically is up to you. These windows don’t have to be traditional rectangles, either, as rounded edges are also available.

3. Wood

When you look at traditional wood or carriage doors, you can see why they’re so desirable; they provide classic charm and old-world beauty. If you don’t want a wooden garage door, you can still get the look of one by using fiberglass. This material can be made to look like wood but doesn’t require the same level of maintenance.

Whether you want to follow current trends or select your own favorite, you can find what you’re looking for at Overhead Door Co. of Lycoming County, a division of Schrader Architectural Products. They have a wide selection of garage door materials available, including aluminum, wood, vinyl, fiberglass, and more.
