Different homes will be complimented more or less by very different types of garage door. Whilst a brand new and very modern home may benefit from metal or uPVC options, more traditional homes are likely to be far more attractive when they have the addition of ornate timber garage doors.
However, it is not just material that will be important when choosing a garage door, and everything from the way in which the door opens to whether or not it is controlled manually or electronically could make a difference to how your house looks as well as how practical it is.
Then there is safety and space constraints to take into account and whilst a very beautiful wooden door that opens out onto the driveway might look wonderful, if you have little room on your drive as it is, it may well take up far too much room, whilst those who have very expensive tools or other items to protect within their garage are likely to need the likes of Glass Reinforced Polyester doors to make them as safe as possible.
Finally, be sure to consider whether or not you are likely to need to regularly open your garage door in awkward situations. Up and over doors will make it far easier for you to save space and electronic options will allow you to open the door even when you have your hands full or even when you are already in your vehicle.
Wooden garage doors are still likely to be a very good bet for most homes, but be sure that the other aspects of the door you choose suit your needs very precisely.
