Traditional Garage Doors

Traditional garage doors are seeing a resurgence and the quality and beauty of these can be seen adorning the garages of both modern and period properties.

Traditional Garage Door Appearance

In many ways, a traditional garage door can have more kerb appeal than some of today’s newer garage doors that use roller mechanisms. Traditional garage doors can be made from timber, such as cedar acquired from a sustainable source.

These hand crafted timber garage doors can be chosen and finished in one of many different wood-tone finishes. It isn’t uncommon for a traditional garage door to have windows inset across the top and these can generally be lots of small square panels of glass set into a frame structure.

Alternatively, they can be fitted into the shape of a sunrise, which is a popular choice when trying to recreate that carriage style garage door look.

It is also possible to buy a traditional garage door that is made out of a plastic composite material, like GRP. This material can be finished with a wood grain effect and stylised to match the look of a timber door.

The Benefits of a Traditional Garage Door

The most common style of traditional garage door is the side hinged garage door. These garage doors open outwards and thus avoid any fixed obstructions, such as shelves or power meters, that may be fixed to the walls.

A traditional side hinged garage door also benefits its owner with easy pedestrian access, as the whole garage door doesn’t need to be opened in order to gain access.

If you consider that an up and over garage door will be more convenient for you, then the traditional look can still be attained, with the door made from wood or GRP, that is adorned with non-functional side hinges.
