What does your commercial garage door say about your business?

The front of your business is the first thing that people see when they pull up or drive by. How your store front looks is giving potential customers their first impression of your business, in many cases. So, you need to think about what message your commercial garage door is sending to the people who lay eyes on it. You want it to be making a statement about your business that goes along with what your company vision is.

Let’s take a look at what factors there are that you should be considering when it comes to your commercial garage door. Then, you’ll be able to see what the answer is in your case for what your commercial garage door says about your business.

Choose the right look

Commercial garage doors come in different sizes, materials, and colors. You can give your service business an entirely different look by changing out the garage doors. Many people look into what they can do in terms of residential garage doors because they want their homes to look a certain way. We’re here to tell you it’s just as important to do this for your commercial garage doors too.

Garaga makes commercial garage doors that have the designs traditionally seen in residential garage doors that people like to enhance their homes’ curb appeal with. Here’s a list of what Garaga offers for commercial garage door designs:

  • The Grooved model: this is the one seen most often. It has 1" (25 mm) - high horizontal lines traversing the sections
Standard+, Grooved, 9x7, Black
Standard+, Moderno 2 beads, 9x7, Charcoal
  • The Flush model, without any design or lines on the sections
Standard+, Flush, 9x7, Ice White

You can check out our Design Centre to see what your business will look like with different kinds of commercial garage doors. You won’t have to try to imagine the front of your shop, just upload a photo of your actual business front and you’ll be able to see exactly what a different garage door design will do for your business’s storefront.

You can also add images to the front of your commercial garage doors, keeping in mind that there are regulations governing this in some areas. It can be very useful as advertising space for your business. You can give your storefront some personality and make the business more recognizable by putting your company logo on the door.

Don’t underestimate the value of a window

It’s probably not the first thing you think about when you’re considering how a garage door looks, but adding windows could also be a good idea. Or how about this? What about doing an all‑glass garage door? Think about the message that sends to your customers. You will always be fully transparent with them about the way you do business. It also allows a lot of natural light into the shop, which can be great for morale.

If you do find yourself wanting to go with the all‑glass door, you’ll have choices for that as well. There are actually more than 25 possible choices, to be more precise! You’ll find tinted, clear, gray, and more!

Many people express concerns about the security of their shops’ equipment if they were to go with an all‑glass door. That’s certainly something to consider and everyone will have different comfort levels. We understand that. There are plenty of other window options for you to choose from. Some of them are quite large, so you’ll still get lots of light coming through. You can decide to place windows high enough on the commercial garage doors that someone couldn’t just walk up and see what’s going on inside. We can find an option that will work for whatever your needs are.
