American Garage Door - Blog


When you hear the words garage doors, chances are you instinctively think about garages for homes. That certainly makes sense: garages were made for housing cars and household items like lawnmowers, yard tools and more. But just because garages are typically reserved for homes, doesn't mean that your commercial business couldn't benefit from the look and performance of a garage door.

You don't have to travel far through any town or city in Southeastern Louisiana to find a business using commercial garage doors in a creative way. New Orleans bars, for example, are replacing windows with garage doors for their high visibility, light transmission, and aesthetics. When installed correctly from a professional commercial garage door specialist, your doors are just as easy to open and close as windows, and can be insulated.

The only difference is they offer unique character for your commercial business that a standard window simply can't deliver.

Looking your best: Garage doors for businesses in New Orleans, Covington, Slidell and Mandeville

If you own a commercial business that relies on increased foot traffic, adding a touch of characteristic flair to your building could be the difference that gets folks in your doors. What we've been seeing in recent years is more and more modern business owners asking us to install commercial garage doors to help them stand out on a street lined with competitors.

Business owners looking for all the advantages of windows, plus the added touch of a stylish garage door, should consider a full-view door. These types of doors open and close like a garage door, but also act like a window. During warmer seasons, restaurant and coffee shop owners, for example, often keep their garage doors open. This helps bring a bit of the outdoors into the establishment with little more effort than opening your commercial garage door.

At American Garage Door we can also completely customize the glass on these doors (think tinted, stained, plexiglass, etc.).

Added security for your Louisiana business with commercial garage doors

Not every business in the region is as concerned with making their storefront look trendy and contemporary as they are with security. That doesn't mean they can't benefit from a commercial garage door. Our American Garage Door team can help you choose the right type of security shutter for your business. These types of shutters are regularly used by urban retail stores that are concerned with maintaining safety without having to compromise on the welcoming nature of their store.

These security shutters will help you continue to showcase your space without sacrificing security. It's ideal for retail buildings, schools, offices, and hospitals.

When looking at security and curb appeal, think outside the window

Security and appeal are two of the most important factors to consider for your commercial business. Being able to showcase what you sell or offer, while not compromising on the integrity of your security measures, can be a challenge. But that's why so many commercial businesses throughout Greater New Orleans turn to American Garage Door of Louisiana to learn more about our versatile commercial garage doors.
