Craftsman homes date back to early 19th century England and have become a staple in American architecture. These homes are known for their old-world charm, clean, modern lines, and lodge-inspired designs, making them a highly popular choice among homeowners in the Pacific Northwest. Craftsman-style garage doors are the perfect opportunity to capture cozy wood grain textures with any stain choices that show off your timeless, sophisticated home design.

What are Craftsman-Style Garage Doors?

Craftsman-style garage doors blend traditional designs with a modern flare. These manufactured doors are available in dozens of styles to suit your specific home design. Typically, they include panes of glass on the upper third of the door to allow natural light and wood material on the lower section to complement the home’s straight, modern lines.
