Color Tips

As a rule, the color of your door should integrate and harmonize with your home.

  • Match the color of your garage door to your window frames rather than your entry door.
  • Choose a color that harmonizes with your brick or exterior cladding.
  • Avoid an overwhelming contrast with the brick by choosing shades of sand or clay that harmonize with the mortar.
