Your garage makes up roughly 30% of your home in a typical single-story house. If your garage door faces the front of the property, then it has a real impact on your home’s curb appeal. While contemporary designs are quite trendy, a farmhouse garage door may complement certain homes quite nicely. They can add a welcome contrast to the urban backdrop of Seattle or a fitting entry to a country home in Redmond, Woodinville or elsewhere.
Farmhouse Garage Door Designs
The typical farmhouse garage door is noted for its decorative X braces and grooved cedar panels that give the look of stable doors. Since the doors are typically constructed of wood, you also get a rustic quality that really looks great, especially if the adjacent walls and surroundings contain distressed stone or brick masonry work.
Even with the old-style charm and appearance, the garage door can still benefit from all the modern conveniences of a contemporary garage. This includes a belt drive garage door opener, reversal function, and insulation for energy efficiency. These features can also be added to an older, existing farm-style door by a garage door repair company.
You might automatically think of wood when it comes to a farmhouse garage door. However, our garage door installation services provide plenty of other options, including aluminum and fiberglass painted and textured to take on the appearance of wood grain. If you do opt for real wood, the material can be stained and coated with polyurethane for long-lasting resistance to the elements. Other additions include overhead arched windows and wrought iron handles and hardware to enhance the countryside curb appeal.
