Are you ready for a modern garage door? If you are in the market for a new garage door, you may be thinking, “well, naturally, I want a modern garage door.” However, this is not necessarily the case. A modern garage door, also called a contemporary garage door, refers to a particular style of door, not how high-tech or in style the door is. We have many stylish, state-of-the-art Clopay® garage doors at Halo Overhead Doors that are not modern garage doors.

That being said, many people do prefer the modern style of garage door, and you may be one of them.

All About Modern Garage Doors

So, what makes a modern garage door? Most modern garage doors are primarily characterized by simplicity and efficiency. They offer clean lines without a lot of complicated or ornate design work. Another thing that distinguishes modern garage doors from more traditional doors is their use of windows and glass.

Modern garage doors do not always have a lot of glass, but they frequently do. And when they do, that glass usually does not take the form of a simple row or two of windows across the top, but instead windows along the sides, in seemingly random locations, or even taking up the vast majority of the door in huge glass panels.

Composition of Modern Residential Garage Doors

Modern garage doors will usually have a metal frame, often aluminum, and the window panels may be made of glass, acrylic or a similar substance. Remember that since the windows make up so much of the door, they need to be quite durable. Modern garage door window glass also can be customized according to how much light you wish to let in vs. how much privacy you want. You can have clear glass, frosted glass, obscure glass or even mirrored glass.
