Colour options for Up and Over Doors

When upgrading your garage door there are many important factors to consider, two main factors that we would say are very important are trends and colours. Your garage door can potentially be in place for many decades, some of our doors have been in situ operating for 38 years! So, when choosing your door, it is important to factor in what colour you are going to go for and what style. Trends come and go, and our experts have curated the below information to ensure you have all the correct information to choose your door. Some trends stand the test of time, and we are finding that certain door style have proven most popular and look sleek even after years of being on a home. The most popular door colour used to be white, mainly because this was likely the only colour many manufacturers produced and was the cheapest option. However, many manufacturers now have a standard range of colours and then trend colours and some even offer to choose your own! Match it to your lifestyle and personality! 

While reviewing our own figures we have seen that anthracite has been the most popular colour in recent years alongside the classic white. Anthracite offers a modern and sleek look while keeping the look subtle and classic. White of course is still a very popular choice for garage doors. If you were to drive round many neighbourhoods, you would find many white garage doors looking bright and crisp. However, one of the few downsides of a white garage door is that they get dirty easier. Every bit of dirt will adhere to the white and overtime if not maintained will look shabby whereas darker colours are more forgiving, but we do always recommend keeping on top of your door maintenance to ensure maximum lifespan of the door.  

Trends in up and over garage doors are a more modern look, the classic Georgian look still remains popular however we are seeing more homeowners going for ribbed doors which do give a similar look to sectional doors but often come up cheaper if price is a factor.
