Top Garage Door Brands: Pros and Cons

We Can't Wait to Hear From You!

The Best Garage Door Brands on the Market

Here at Tanners Garage Door, we’ve partnered with the best brands on the market to provide you with a variety of quality garage doors. Each of the brands we work with produces top-notch doors that we’re proud to present.

But how would you know which brand to choose? A big deciding factor may depend on the style of door you want as well as its availability. But as for the rest of it, don’t worry. Tanners Garage Door will walk you through the various brands we work with and what makes each one distinctive.

Pros and Cons of the Garage Door Brands

We’ve listed out all of the manufacturers we currently work with, and the pros and cons of each of them. Since we’ve partnered with all of these brands, we believe that each of them can bring something to the table. Each brand suits different needs. So no matter what you’re looking for, one of these brands is sure to work for you!

C.H.I. Overhead Doors

C.H.I. is a very popular brand used all over the country. They’re most known for their accent series—especially the accent series plank door—and their overlay doors. These two styles in particular do extremely well.

One unique feature about C.H.I. is that there’s no other steel door that looks so much like wood. It’s almost impossible to tell that it’s not wood. They accomplish this by photographing real wood grain and applying the image through a photo process. The downside is that right up close it can look a little pixilated, but from slightly farther away, it’s almost impossible to tell it isn’t real wood! The best part is there are no repetitive patterns; each door is a little bit unique.

Their most unique garage door is the Sterling – a frameless glass door. No other company makes glass garage doors without frames. This is an extremely popular option for high-end customers wanting a sleek, modern garage door that’s extremely unique.

CHI Garage Doors

C.H.I. uses a slightly different distribution model – they use third parties to distribute. They only manufacture the doors. That means you can’t buy them directly from C.H.I.; you’ll need a dealer.

With 188 different color options, you can be sure that you’ll get the perfect look for your door!

doorLink Manufacturing

doorLink builds a good product. They’re a slightly lesser-known brand, and it’s hard for them to compete with the big names like C.H.I. and Clopay. That being said, doorLink’s garage doors are more budget-friendly.

Something unique about doorLink is their paint process. They have a special process that allows their doors to have a uniquely finished look. Their paint always looks great!

The main reason they don’t compete as well as the big names is because they don’t have as wide of a variety. They have a lot of basic doors and no high-end doors. Of course, this isn’t a problem if you’re looking for a simple door!

doorLink has a find your door option that allows you to search through their inventory for a door that most closely resembles what you’re looking for. This is a great way to get an idea of what you’re looking for!

Clopay is arguably the biggest brand of garage doors. They’re definitely the name when it comes to variety! They have everything from the most budget-friendly options to the most unique high-end doors out there. You simply can’t beat the number of options that they have!

They have a unique take on a carriage house garage door that adds a little extra to the normal style. In addition, they have a ton of different glass options available if you’re looking for something more contemporary.

Their customer service simply can’t be matched! They’re very polite and always ready to answer your questions.

Clopay Garage Door Brand

Clopay’s design gallery features every type of garage door imaginable. And with their convenient brochures, you can learn the exact details of every single garage door they offer. You’ll know everything you could possibly know about your garage door!

If you want the most variety at the best price, choose a Clopay door! After all, they’re not called “America’s Favorite Doors” for nothing!


Amarr is basically a more budget-friendly version of Clopay. While they don’t have the variety that Clopay has, they defiantly work hard with what they do have!

Their doors are more simplistic, but still beautiful nonetheless! In addition, Amarr has a big educational section where you can learn all about garage doors in general.

These garage doors are still very durable, but their materials are of a slightly cheaper quality. This does mean that the doors aren’t as pricey, which can be a big help.

Amarr Garage Doors

Amarr has many distribution centers all over the country, so they’re fairly easy to get, no matter where you are. They have two in Texas alone!

With their design your door feature, you can see all of their available options in order to get the right door for your home. You’ll love having a new door from Amarr!


AlumaDoor exclusively designs full-view glass garage doors. These doors are reinforced with aluminum, hence the name. The aluminum helps keep the garage door from becoming too heavy, requiring bigger and more expensive parts in order to operate safely.

They provide both residential and commercial doors across the west coast. One really cool feature is their easy pick-up system. They have unmanned warehouses that allow the customers to pick up their garage doors directly.

AlumaDoor has an impressive design gallery that showcases their most beautiful garage doors. This is definitely the way to go if you want a durable, quality glass garage door.

The downside is, of course, that they only offer glass garage doors. They have about as much variety as they can, given that they only offer the one style. You can choose from various frame options and window tints.

These quality-made doors add a stunning, contemporary look to any home!

So Who’s the Best?

All this being said, what’s the best option to go with? Really, this depends on your specific needs as a homeowner. Style, budget, and materials all play a big role.

That being said, we have to give the #1 role to Clopay. Their variety and available options simply can’t be beaten. Plus, they have options for just about anyone. They have the best combination of price, materials, and style.

The other brands we work with are great brands as well, or else we wouldn’t be working with them! It all depends on what you need for your garage. We’ll be happy to discuss your options with you and help you pick the right brand to go with.
