Design Your Own Garage Door

There are hundreds of  types and styles of garage doors available today.  Choosing which one is right for you can be a daunting task.  Fortunately, there are websites that allow you to see how different styles and colors of overhead doors would look on your own home.  One of our suppliers, Overhead Doors, has a great site for this.  You can upload a picture of your house and get a good idea of what the different colors and styles of residential garage doors would look like.

Some tips on taking and saving a photo of your home for this site:

  • Your photo should be less than 800 pixels in height and width  with a file size no larger than 6MB.
  • Take your picture with the sun at your  back to get a well lighted image
  • Use the landscape format
  • Make sure the focus is correct
  • Take a head on view of the garage door with entire house included in the shot if possible


Here’s what this webpage looks like.  Just log into Overhead Doors Design Center to get started.
