Picking Out The Garage Doors

Now here's a first - the first place we checked out for Garage Doors and we decided there was no need to get quotes from anywhere else we'll go with these guys Gryphon Garage Doors. They make the garage doors themselves locally and it's always best to deal direct you get a better deal and a quicker turner over because you're not dealing with any middle man.

So as soon as the slab was poured, the very next day in fact we called Gryphon to come out and measure up and picked out our doors

We are going for the cedar wood look in jarrah (of course!)

You can pick thin or wide panels (not suitable if you want windows)

Or this Ranch style with squares (suitable with windows)

I wanted window panels to let in a bit of natural light
Here are some of the different window styles 

And this is the style of door we picked
A Sectional Cedar Look Door in Jarrah Ranch style

With Sunrise Windows I liked this pattern as there are only 4 panels it looked less busy

We also got a single roller door for the back of the garage that goes into the backyard
The colour we picked is classic cream (top left sample)
so it blends with the house bricks

The door style is a metal roller door and will look similar to this door
except it won't have the key lock on the front as it is electric as well

Buying the 2 doors together we made a bit of a saving which is why we splurged on the electric roller door as well, it was an extra $200 but at the end of the day it will be much easier to buzz open the door with a remote than to have to find the key and heave the door up.

Hopefully the doors will be installed in the next 2-3 weeks and we can set up our garage, park the cars in, and have a garage party!

  1. Nice choice, Michelle! I like that style window. They've got quite a variety of colors available. We've always gone with white and many years ago when we moved into our last house, it was a stained wood. It got so beat up from the sun beating down on it, the stain and poly just peeled up. When we replaced them we went with a white vinyl [with windows]. Now we live in a condo community and all the garage doors are the same {and white}, which is fine with me. I would have liked windows though to bring some natural light in.
