Which Amarr Garage Door Should You Choose?

Amarr offers numerous garage door options for residential buyers to choose from. The Lincoln 3000 and the Classica are popular among ExCello customers, but they don’t have to be your only options.

Here are some factors you can consider to narrow down what kind of garage door you want to buy:


First off, you need a door that has the look you want, whether it be classic, modern, contemporary, etc. The door must look nice with your home and offer curb appeal. Choosing the right garage door for your home can help increase its value.


Often, finding a garage door that’s the perfect look for your style preferences and home is the easy part. The hard part is finding a door that fits your budget. So, instead of setting your heart on a single door that looks perfect, it’s better to have several different options to evaluate and choose from. Sometimes a different style might become your favorite once you see the price is more within your budget range.

Energy Efficiency

Some garage door styles have better insulation than others. This will be more or less important depending on your climate. Having a poorly insulated garage door can increase your heating and cooling costs immensely.


Lots of people want to have a garage door that’s unique. Customization options make this possible. But it’s important to know that different collections of garage doors allow you to customize different aspects. So you need to decide which factors are most important for you. For example, there’s windows, panels, color, finish, accessories, etc. Consider shape, size and position of these elements as well.


The material a garage door is made of will impact how long it can work without requiring extra maintenance or upkeep. A wooden door requires lots of maintenance, while different types of metal doors are more durable.

If you go with the Lincoln 3000 or Classica garage door, you’ll likely be happy with your choice. If you want to explore other options before making a decision, consider the factors above and call Ex-Cello Overhead Door for a free door consultation to see if an Amarr door is right for you.
