Residential Garage Doors in Florida

No matter where you live in Florida, you can count on two things — sunshine and thunderstorms. While basking in the sun's rays by the water is just as tempting as curling up with a book during summer afternoon showers, we bet that your car doesn't appreciate the high heat and heavy storms as much as you do. Having a garage is a necessity for many Florida homeowners.

Popular Garage Door Styles in Florida

A garage is a fantastic resource in itself, but a garage door alone can have a dramatic impact on your home's aesthetic. It can create balance across the front of your home and provide an attractive contrast to the exterior color. Replacing your old garage door with a new installation can also enhance your curb appeal and has the potential to increase the resale value of your home.

From the farthest tip of the Keys to the western edge of the Panhandle and everywhere in between, you'll notice that many Floridian homes have been wonderfully transformed through the use of specific styles of garage doors. As South Florida's choice for garage door sales and repair, Broten loves seeing how a brand-new garage door dynamically changes a home's exterior. If you're looking for a new garage door, we suggest considering one of these five popular garage door styles in Florida.

1. Contemporary

Florida has a mix of old bungalows and newly constructed homes, giving homeowners many options. Many homeowners love the look of contemporary garage doors because it adds just the right amount of style without being too subtle or overbearing. These models feature crisp, clean lines which complement classic details. One great advantage to choosing a contemporary garage door style is that it can blend perfectly with any other modern makeovers you give the exterior of your home.

Modern homes require modern styles. Our contemporary doors are made from a variety of materials. Choose an insulated steel or an aluminum and glass model for low-maintenance convenience. You can also select a wood-look garage door in a contemporary style to give your home an extra boost of charm. A favorite of many Florida homeowners is our durable Modern Steel door that is hurricane-rated to provide the protection you need. Our steel Canyon Ridge Modern Series is another popular option that offers a faux-wood appearance.

2. Traditional

Contemporary is a great choice for some, but many other Floridians prefer a more traditional approach when it comes to the design of their home's exterior. Basic can be beautiful, and conventional is often convenient. One benefit in choosing a traditional garage door style is that it integrates seamlessly into a home's exterior that also features a traditional design. Another advantage is that a traditional style may be ideal when it comes time to sell your home, giving you the boost in curb appeal that conventional buyers may appreciate.

You can't go wrong with a traditional garage door from our Value or Premium Series. The Value Series has the long-lasting garage door you need at an affordable price. The Premium Series ups the ante to deliver better insulation that increases energy efficiency to keep your garage comfortable all year long. We even have garage door lines that you can customize if you want a traditional style with the inclusion of windows or a paint color that matches your home's exterior perfectly.

3. Carriage House

The minute you lay your eyes on a carriage house-style garage door, you fall in love with its charm. This style transports your mind back into a bygone era of horse-drawn carriages and simpler times. The classic white-painted finish and crossbuck panels deliver that perfect country-style appearance that Florida homeowners love. Carriage house garage doors can be manufactured from natural wood, but new models use woodgrain finishes to remove the upkeep and damages that traditional wooden garage doors incur.

Our selection of carriage house doors are available in two, four and five-layer construction and feature multiple door and window styles. We also encourage you to check out our carriage house garage doors made from steel and composite overlays that are hurricane-rated — perfect for a Florida home close to the coast!

4. Mediterranean

You don't need to go far to find a Mediterranean style home in Florida. This Spanish-influenced design style is popular in many of the Sunshine State's neighborhoods and deserves a garage door that perfectly complements its architecture. Because many of these homes are predominantly white or tan with red and brown accents from top to bottom, it's important that you choose a contrasting stain or paint for the garage door, especially if you purchase a door that is made with wood or a faux-wood material.

Our Canyon Ridge Modern Series is the perfect model for your Mediterranean home. This series was designed with the Florida home in mind. Hurricane-rated with optional impact windows, this garage door is available in several factory-finish colors that present a rich, dark stain that beautifully contrasts your home.

5. Wood-Look

Do you love the look of natural wood but would rather not deal with the constant upkeep? Then consider a wood-look door for your garage. Natural wood doors are phenomenal looking, and we understand why so many homeowners take pride in their wood door. As a Florida homeowner, you need to be aware of how these beautiful woods react to the heat, rain and humidity that our weather brings. That's why we always suggest homeowners consider our wood-look doors before making a final decision.

Wood-look doors are steel with faux-wood overlays, giving you strength and durability blended with the beauty and style of natural wood. You can have your pick of colors and finishes to complement or match nearly any exterior color on your home. Unsure if a wood-look or Mediterranean style is right for your home? Are you looking for a style that sits somewhere between the modern's clean lines and the carriage house's charm?

Broten wants you to be 100% satisfied with your decision, that's why we offer a line of custom products so you can create the perfect garage door that's truly one-of-a-kind!

Ideal Garage Door Materials for Florida Homes

Florida garage door materials

Choosing a new garage door involves more than simply picking the style that speaks to you. You need a garage door that can look great and withstand whatever nature throws at it. Intense heat, wind, rain and even hurricanes may impact your home throughout the year. As you consider which garage door style you want, keep in mind that the material matters just as much as its appearance. The following three residential garage door materials are ideal for Florida homes.

1. Steel and Composite

Steel is trusted for its strength and style, so it's no wonder it's such a popular garage door material for Florida homes. This material is also one of the most versatile in terms of design, customization and even pricing. Homeowners of every budget can easily find a steel garage door that delivers the style and durability they need at a price they can afford. Our Clopay steel doors range from single-layer to triple-layer construction, including insulation on some models.

You already know that steel is reliable, but why not double down on the integrity of your garage door by choosing a steel door with composite overlays? A woodgrain textured composite overlay offers an additional layer of protection. The already strong steel of these doors is given extra layers for maximum durability. Our overlays are available in several colors so you never have to trade style for strength.

2. Aluminum and Impact Glass

There's a reason so many Florida homeowners choose aluminum as the material for their garage doors. Many aluminum doors are rustproof as well as corrosion-resistant. Some exceptionally manufactured models also offer a high-rate of durability that maximized privacy and protection. Some homeowners may be hesitant on incorporating glass into their aluminum garage door, but we want to assure you that new glass panels are designed with strength, safety and convenience in mind. When paired with an aluminum frame, glass panes transform your garage inside and out.

You've surely seen your share of aluminum garage doors, but we guarantee you've never seen anything like our aluminum and glass doors Broten carries. Our glass panes come in clear or frosted to provide the amount of light and visibility you desire, and the frames are available in several finishes.

3. Faux Wood

Real wood is beautiful — but it also requires a lot of ongoing maintenance to prevent shrinking, cracking, warping and rotting. If you want to retain the beauty of real wood without all of the hassle, choose a faux wood garage door. Available as a natural-looking, stained paint finish on our aluminum and steel doors, faux wood designs are available in bi-directional and uni-directional grains to preserve an authentic appearance without having to worry about the material succumbing to damage from Florida's heat and rain.

We are proud to have an unbelievable selection of Ultra-Grain faux wood finishes throughout our Clopay collections. With over a dozen unique options, you can choose from oak, cypress and classic wood styles. Available in three-layer and four-layer construction, these durable, long-lasting garage door materials are ideal for those who want the rustic charm of pure wood but who also need the strength and weather-resistance of steel.

Garage Door Options to Customize

Standard is sufficient, but many Florida homeowners love to add their own personal touch to their new garage doors. You want a home that's customized to your style, and we couldn't agree more! Now that you've put together a shortlist of the garage door styles you love, it's time to take your creativity to the next level by customizing its design. From finishes and windows to track configurations and insulation integration, all of our Clopay home garage doors can be modified to your specific style and needs.

1. Finishes

When it comes to customizing your new garage door, we suggest you look at the finish first. Selecting a finish has the potential to transform your curb appeal even more. For example, staining a natural wood garage door can really refine its appearance. Similarly, painting a steel garage door can give it that strong color blast that makes it stand out in style. Looking for the perfect color to complement your home? Let us customize the color so that it balances, contrast or matches your home's exterior color!

The factory finishes on our new garage doors are second to none. With so many finish and paint options, you can explore every possibility available to ensure you select the best color for your home. Unsure about which finish will look best on your home? Let the Broten team help you compare your options and choose the style that will showcase your home. We can even send you free garage door color samples so you can see exactly what it will look like.

2. Windows

If you haven't considered including windows in your garage door, you may not be aware of the many benefits these features lend. As one of the best investments you can make in your home, garage doors with windows are functional and attractive. The increase in natural daylight makes the interior of your garage more convenient to work in. Some window panes are energy efficient while impact-rated glass that meets strict building codes is also available for high-wind protection.

While you can install new windows in some existing garage doors, we recommend that you purchase a new door with windows already installed. Our selection of Clopay garage doors include many different options for window integration. The classic and designer collections offer you a diverse array of styles that will complement your garage door and can even match the existing window shapes and styles throughout your home.

3. Tracks

Take a moment to consider one element of a garage door that most homeowners forget about — the garage door's track. If you're like many homeowners, you may be used to seeing the standard radius track that's most commonly used in residential applications. However, there are actually a few other track variations you can choose from that cater to your garage's unique size.

  • Follow roof pitch lift: Great for garages with sloped ceilings.
  • Vertical lift: Perfect for those who need additional vertical space in their garage.
  • High lift: Increased lift space that may be necessary for garages that need to avoid specific structural elements.
  • 25-degree track: Ideal for garage doors that may interfere with windows when in operation.
  • Low headroom, rear-mounted spring: This accommodates garages that have an extremely limited amount of vertical space.
  • Low headroom, front-mounted spring: For garages with limited vertical space but slightly more than those that the rear-mounted spring tracks accommodate.

Every aspect of your garage door should fit your style and spatial needs. Unsure of which track configuration is right for your garage? Call Broten today and we'll help you determine how much headroom, sideroom and backroom is required for all of our configurations in 2-inch and 3-inch tracks.

4. Insulation

You rely on insulation to keep your home comfortable throughout the year — shouldn't you expect that same reliability and comfort in your garage? The garage is one of the areas where your home can let in the most heat. Along with improving your energy efficiency and lowering your energy costs, insulated garage doors are great resources that help preserve the items you store in this space. Don't let heat wreak havoc on your tools, holiday decorations or other important possessions. Choose an insulated garage door for maximum protection.

Clopay garage doors can be installed with Intellicore insulation technology. This polyurethane foam fills the inside of the entire garage door, increasing its strength, durability and insulation. It enhances comfort while also absorbing sound. Imagine walking into a garage that's warm in the winter and cool in the summer while knowing your garage door has built-in resistance to wear and tear that will extend its lifespan and enhance your family's safety.

Customizing your garage door has never been easier than with Broten. Our wide selection of residential garage doors has many potential variations and configurations so you can design them specifically to suit your home. Before any of our customers settle on a door design, we encourage them to consider all customization features to discover how a simple modification to the windows, track, finish and insulation can dramatically transform the door. Whether you're customizing for enhanced style, security, space or support, our garage doors are guaranteed to please!
