Custom Home Garage Doors – They’re Just Doors, Right?

custom home builder on lbiOne of the most overlooked and under appreciated exterior features of a new custom home are the garage doors. Not only do garage doors provide protection and security for your cars and other items stored in that coveted space, we bet you didn’t know they represent up to 30% of your home’s exterior façade! With such a large amount of the outside taken up by one or more doors, it’s important to choose your garage door based on quality, however, aesthetics should also be considered for the curb appeal of your home.


All of our custom homes on Long Beach Island are built using Clopay® Garage Doors. They are the only manufacturer of garage doors that are backed by the Good Housekeeping Seal. Our homeowners enjoy choices from the Gallery Collection from the Portfolio line of Clopay® which feature vintage style, insulated steel garage doors with a more modern, updated appeal. These doors have five factory finish paint colors or an Ultra-grain® stained wood look. In addition, the swing out appearance with overhead operation offer long or short grooved panel designs with optional windows and decorative hardware. These doors can withstand up to 110 mph winds, so your home and its garage contents will be protected during storms. More information and specifications are available at the Clopay website.
