Two Garage Door Trends That Are On The Rise

Posted by Meagan Steinberg on Mar 14, 2019 4:48:55 PM

People ask us all the time what’s popular when it comes to garage doors. There are two trends that have clearly been on the increase in north Iowa, which follows suit with national trends as well.


Black Garage Doors
Without a doubt, The Door People at Overhead Door Company of Mason City have been selling and installing a lot of black garage doors! According to www.nygates.com, choosing a bold color, including black, when it comes to your garage door continues to lead the industry for replacements, newer houses and building projects. The nice thing about black is its ability to hide dirt. Here are some pictures of black garage doors that we’ve installed:

Vertical Window Design
The second trend we are experiencing is an increase in customers choosing a vertical window design option on the left or right side of the garage door (example also pictured above). Traditionally, windows in a garage door generally are placed in the top section or the second section down, depending on the height of the door. Now many styles of garage doors offer the option to put a window in each section on the left or right side, which achieves a modern and contemporary look. For example, Overhead Door’s Thermacore insulated steel garage doors offer the vertical window column design. In addition to the top picture of the black garage door with vertical windows, here are a couple of pictures of some garage doors with vertical windows that we’ve installed:
