Panel design. There are four main standard panel designs to choose from that we will share below. Which will work best for your new garage door?

3. Short-Raised Panels

Similar to above, short-raised panels can also add depth to the door. Short-raised panels make great additions for Victorian-style homes with intricately delicate trim, colonial-style homes with symmetrical facades, or Tudor homes with strong architectural lines.
