The Top Residential Garage Door Trends of 2019

2019 is an exciting year for design. Before diving into the next decade, both exterior and interior designers are focusing on cutting-edge, energy efficient designs. Garage doors are no exception. This year's garage door trends also prioritize efficiency, the latest technology, as well as style and aesthetic. 

The Top Residential Garage Door Trends of 2019

In today's day and age, a garage is no longer just for your car, tools, or storage. Many homeowners have transformed their garages into hangouts or "man caves" - which are perfect for hosting parties or watching the game with your friends. The garage is an extension of your home and it should be a reflection of that. 

If you're looking to bring your garage into the next decade, there's no better place to start than with the door. Not only is it the entrance to your garage, but a new, beautiful door adds curb appeal, increasing the value of your home. 

Energy Efficiency is Key

Not only is an energy efficient garage door environmentally friendly, it's great for your wallet, too. If your garage is attached to your home, your heat can seep out through it. Additionally, your garage may bring cold air in. When the weather warms, your air condition may escape through your garage and heat may come into your house. 

An energy efficient garage door will provide proper insulation so that you aren't paying more than you have to for heat or air conditioning. Our Polyurethane and Expanded Polystyrene insulated doors offer unbeatable energy efficiency. The thermal Break & Air Seal prevents heat loss through the metal-to-metal contact on the inner and outer surface of the door and it is available on our Masterpiece as well as ShowCase residential garage doors. 

All Raynor garage doors also feature a Weather seal to keep out weather elements such as rain, snow, and wind. 

Cutting-Edge Technology

Believe it or not, technology has come a long way since C.G. Johnson's invention of the automatic garage door in 1926 (DASMA). Now, we have doors that can be opened through an app on your smartphone. Some of the latest garage doors even let you monitor your garage from your phone. You can have peace of mind knowing your garage is safe and secure from anywhere in the world. 

Raynor's Airman II has MyQ technology in addition to its WiFi capabilities. The MyQ allows you to monitor your garage door via smartphone, tablet, or computer. You can also receive alerts as a notification on your phone or through your email address. 

The Corporal II and Sergeant II also have WiFi capabilities and advanced security. 

The Latest Trends in Style and Aesthetic

Historically, garage doors have come in a wide variety of styles, designs, and materials. There are single and double door garages, steel doors, painted doors, and decorative windows, to name a few. Nationserve predicts bold colors, glass, modern materials, and old fashion accents will dominate the market this year.
