Although these garage doors have the traditional look, there have been many improvements made to these garage doors over the years, including higher R value, thicker steel, safeguard pinch protection and more color options. Traditional garage doors also offer new window and panel options while maintaining their beautiful traditional flavor.
A traditional garage door typically has 5 basic styles: Short panel (small raised squares), long panels (raised rectangles), flush (completely flat), ribbed (deep grooves), and the recently added beadboard (beadboard lines in the short or long raised panels). These 5 styles can work with virtually any house design. Traditional garage doors can come in open-back or non-insulated, vinyl back-insulated, and steel back-insulated.
