A carriage style door with its graceful curves looks terrific on a home with curved windows. A Spanish villa style house will look fabulous with a new rustic looking garage door! A modern contemporary styled home begs for a sleek look incorporating more glass or wide horizontal panels as opposed to boxier square panels. Garage doors come in a plethora of styles; Colonial Tudor Mediterranean Country Spanish and many others.
Now look at the history of these useful doors. The history of garage doors is story as well. The first garage doors were barn doors. They opened in a very rustic manner. The more stately homes had carriage houses. These were like barns. They were completely separate from the home. They offered a place for horses and their carriages to reside. The separate carriage house was for the rich of the time. Their use was practical with a touch of high style. They were all practicality and not a fashion thing
The Structure of the framed garage should start with waterproof bottom plates secured by anchor bolts in the concrete slab. The walls should be built with 2 by 4 studs 16 inches apart to guarantee a structurally strong wall and 8 feet high. Rafters should be 2 by 6 studs 16 inches apart to support snow and other elements. Make sure the rafters are securely embedded into the top plates of the walls with the bird mouth cut method. Once the sheathing is installed on the walls and roof vinyl siding is the most recommended siding as it is the most maintenance free and economical in the market.
Technology has simplified work and as such people no longer employ watchmen or gatemen to run ahead and open their door so that they can drive into the garage with ease. If you happen to be the night hawk that comes home at 2 am who would be waiting to open doors for you anyway. Getting modern doors installed can save you all the trouble since most of them come with remote controlled opening and closing systems. With the availability of technological solutions all you need to do is provide the list of expectations that you want included in it and let the modern garage doors company handle the rest.
Custom doors are the most expensive garage doors. These are the doors that are designed to the home owners specifications and can be built to fit odd shaped or custom garages. Typically these doors are made of high quality hardwoods and incorporate lots of architectural interest. Get online and visit garage door manufacturers - many of the larger companies offer images that allow you to see what homes similar to yours would look like with a variety of different door designs.
