Rolling Forward – Garage Door Trends of 2024

Posted by Overhead Door of Sioux City and Yankton | May 8, 2024 8:00:00 AM


When was the last time you thought about updating your garage door? Many homeowners don’t think about replacing their door until it breaks. But an outdated garage door can really date your home’s exterior, reducing its curb appeal. Like with other home designs, garage door trends change from year to year, and if your design is from decades ago, it may be time to update it. And, with an ROI of 102.7% for garage doors (according to the 2023 Cost vs. Value Report), you can be confident a garage door update will pay you back in case you ever sell your home.


Here are some garage door trends to look for in 2024.

Durable Materials

Home maintenance to-do lists can get long. With homeowners checking the HVAC, checking for leaks and cleaning out the gutters, the last thing they want to do is maintain their garage doors. It’s been found that on average, homeowners spend about 17 hours per month doing home maintenance-related tasks. In 2024, homeowners are looking to install garage doors that are built with durable, low-maintenance materials to help offset time spent cleaning. The materials should withstand harsh weather conditions, like the scorching heat of a Midwest summer and the sub-zero temps of winter without warping, cracking or repainting.


Aluminum Doors

Aluminum and steel are durable, can withstand harsh weather and are also recyclable. Plus, aluminum doors, like those available from Overhead Door of Sioux City and Overhead Door of Yankton, are sleek and sophisticated for today’s more contemporary-styled homes. They come in two models, 511 in a standard frame and 521 with a wide, heavy-duty frame. Clear Aluminum Finish doors are standard. But dark bronze and black anodized finishes are also available. Custom Powdercoat Finish doors are available in 200 powder coat color options to best match your home. Color samples are available by request through your local Overhead Door Distributor.


Faux Wood Doors

While wood doors can offer a natural look, they can be a lot of work to maintain, not to mention they come with a hefty price tag. Faux wood garage doors, like our Wood Overlay Carriage House Doors, can deliver the same stylish look for much less and without the required maintenance. In fact, faux wood garage doors resemble wooden doors so closely, it’s hard to tell the difference between the two. Faux wood doors also never need to be painted or stained. Made from fiberglass, faux wood doors won’t rot or rust no matter the weather conditions, perfect for our area.


Open Up Spaces

Homeowners today are looking to incorporate nature into home design. Biophilic designs, those that use greenery and natural elements, have increased in popularity, according to Architectural Digest. Glass paneled garage doors and weather screens can turn the garage into a comfortable, light place to congregate.


Glass Garage Doors

Glass doors are a popular option for a variety of reasons: they look modern, offer plenty of light and have adjustable layouts. Glass options range from arched to square and from one row to a full-glass door. There are even glass door options that are frameless. Overhead Door’s Envy model features glass panels mounted on top of an aluminum structure to create a sleek and modern look.


Weather Screens

Overhead Door of Sioux City and Yankton also offer bug or weather screens that attach to the inside of an existing residential garage door, using the same track. The doors allow air to flow in while keeping out bugs, birds, and other pests. The doors also provide shade, as most come in dark colors to reflect the sun’s harsh rays.


Custom Colors

Designers today are embracing color and homeowners are getting on board. Designers predict the use of bolder neutrals as well as greens, pinks and moody blacks in 2024. And while they’re painting interior walls in bright hues, some homeowners are transforming their exteriors as well. Painting a garage door is an easy way to give it a fresh look. And while many Overhead Door garage doors can be painted, they also come in custom colors, so the work is done for you.


Overhead Door of Sioux City and Yankton offers 188 different garage door colors that are factory applied as a powder coat paint. There is also a custom paint option so you can expertly match your home’s siding and trim to your garage door. Make a selection from any Sherwin-Williams color and we will have it painted – in a paint booth – by a local professional before installing it.


Smart Technology

Homeowners want their homes to be just as smart as their phones. Smart speakers, thermostats, doorbells, appliances and lights have dominated the market. The smart home devices market is expected to grow 17.8% from 2023 to 2024. Homeowners want their garage doors to be just as smart and programable from their phones. The OHD Anywhere app makes this a reality. OHD Anywhere is a smartphone app that works in conjunction with a garage door opener allowing users to access and control the residential garage door from anywhere with a cell or wireless signal. The OHD Anywhere app allows users to check if the garage door is open or closed, get notified when someone uses the door and remotely opens the garage door for deliveries. Plus, the app has convenience features that allow you to set up both permanent and temporary users on your account, operates up to three doors on one account and free, over-the-air updates and features.
