WHAT COLOUR GARAGE DOOR ?
What colour garage door should I choose? This is a question that has been asked of me many times over the years, but unfortunately there is no one correct answer. Everyone has their own personal taste and that is what really counts. There are some who prefer to match the front door with the garage door, but alternatively, there are many who would rather have the garage door somehow blend in with the house and have the front door a different colour. The theory here is the front door should be the focal point in the front of the house and that you do not want to draw all the attention to the garage door. It works either way and depends on your own personal taste.
Dodds Garage doors has a rainbow of colours to choose from. We have a nice selection of standard garage door colours, but if none of these work for you, there are literaly hundreds of other custom colours to select from.

Tips for Choosing the Right Garage Door Color
There are a number of elements that help form the overall look and curb appeal of your home. Exterior finishing materials and landscaping are huge factors, but so is the use of color. Even small details such as window trim color, exterior siding (brick, vinyl, stucco, etc.) can have an impact, but the biggest consideration is almost always going to be about your garage door.
As one of the largest single features of a home, a garage door’s color can play a major role in how much or how little your home stands out in the neighborhood. Not only does it have an aesthetic impact, but your garage door’s color can also affect your home’s overall value. The wider the door (ex: 16 feet), the greater the impact.
When choosing a garage door color, here are a few things to keep in mind:
Remember, details make a home. If you are planning on painting your home or replacing your garage door, take some time to consider garage door colors. If your home is a neutral color, such as beige or gray, a white door will give it a cleaner, brighter appearance. This is especially noticeable if your front door and trim are also white.
On the other hand, if your home is white, adding a bit of color is a great way to brighten up the home while still keeping it simple. In both of these cases, the key is to create contrast.
If you don’t necessarily want to draw attention to your garage door, you can also match it to the color of your house. Again, this seems like a simple thing, but it really does make a difference.
