Finding the Best Modern Garage Door for Your Contemporary House

Modern architecture and design revolutionized the way we build homes. The contemporary and minimalist approach to houses has become more popular over the years. Simple and sophisticated, this style most exemplifies a modern house. And, as the garage door is the facade of most houses, it should look as stylish as the rest of your home.

The R-Value, or insulation value, is a factor that most homeowners should consider before shopping for garage doors. If you’re living in a state that is prone to temperature changes each season, you may want to consider a higher R-Value rating for your garage door. Simply put, the higher the R-Value, the greater the insulation, which means the garage door will help retain more heat inside your garage during colder months and keep the garage cool during summer months.

To help you decide which is the best modern garage door for your contemporary house, here are our top picks:

1. Steel Garage Doors: Sleek, Strong, and Stylish

If you’re looking for a heavy-duty garage door that is built for performance, our Wayne Dalton Classic Garage Door Series 9100 and 9600 is up to the task. Steel garage doors also come in a variety of styles and can be less expensive than wooden doors depending on the model.


Our Classic Steel Garage Doors 9100 and 9600 come in a variety of design options and are also cost-effective. These doors feature a combination of steel, sprayed-in foam insulation, and Wayne Dalton’s Toughguard® (for model 9100) or steel backer (for model 9600). You’ll enjoy seamless-looking panels that resemble real wood, but provide better insulation than glass or wood doors.

Steel garage doors are recommended for cold climates because they have a high R-Value rating. The thermal efficiency of steel doors not only helps to ensure your garage is properly insulated, but it also reduces street noise from inside the garage.

Other features include reinforced steel and struts that strengthen the framework and tamper-resistant bottom brackets and pinch-resistant panels for safety.

2. Wood Garage Doors: The Beauty of Rustic Artistry
