Garage Door Window Tips

Want to add a nice touch to your garage doors but are too overwhelmed by all of the window design options? Want something appealing but also functional? At Bob’s Advance Garage Doors, we’ve got some helpful tips and popular options to help enhance your garage doors. Take a look.

Adding Garage Door Window Inserts

Adding window inserts to your garage doors will provide benefits for your home. One of those benefits is natural light. Adding windows to your garage door will allow more natural light into your garage which can help eliminate the need to use multiple interior lights which can save on energy costs. Also, adding windows to your garage door that reflect the style of the other windows in your home will provide a visual balance and help enhance curb appeal. If you’d like to learn more about garage door repair and installation options, give us a call at Bob's Advance Garage Doors. 

Choose the Right Garage Door Window Style

Now, you’ve decided to enhance your garage door with a stylish garage door window but there’s just one little problem- you have to choose the shape and style that you like and one that suits your home. After all, the shape and style of your garage door will impact the type of window that can be installed. To keep it simple, we’ve narrowed it down to four garage door styles: arched, rectangular, contemporary house, or historic.

Arched Garage Doors

If your garage door is arched, it’s best to choose garage door windows that are also arched. This will help maintain the symmetry throughout your home. This style is especially popular among homes that feature arched windows in other parts of the house.

Classic Garage Doors

If you have a rectangular, paneled garage door like most households, you’re in luck. These are the most versatile kinds of garage doors and your options are endless. At Bob's Advance Garage Doors, we’d suggest sprucing up your garage door by having a row of glass windows installed across the top or by coupling longer panels side by side. 

Contemporary Homes

If you have a contemporary house, consider adding a contemporary twist to your garage door. Geometric window accents are sure to spruce up your contemporary style home. 

Historic Homes

If you have a historic style home, you’ll want to maintain the same style across your entire property. Historic homes are unique because they each have individual design schemes that may need custom design ideas by a professional. If your home falls under this category, it’s best to consult a professional who can provide a custom design that can meet your needs without losing the historic charm of your home.

Tints, Textures, Materials

Garage Door Windows come in a variety of styles that include a selection of tints, textures, and materials. The type of glass you choose for your garage door windows will depend on your personal preference. Depending on the purpose of your garage door windows, you can choose from clear glass to opaque. You can choose whether you’d like transparent windows or frosted. Lastly, some texture options range from obscure to antique.
