Traditional raised panel – Traditional raised panel garage doors are one of the most common and inexpensive options out there. They include square or rectangle panels and while they are made in wood, the cheaper options are faux wood and not as durable.
Stamped carriage house – These doors are a throwback to a time gone by.

They are very decorative and can be a beautiful addition to a traditional style or farm style home.
