Holmes offers both residential and commercial models in steel, and they also manufacture a line of wooden carriage house style residential doors. They do not offer models in aluminum, glass, fiberglass, or vinyl.

Holmes roll up garage doors are constructed with 26 gauge roll formed galvanized steel. They are available in widths up to 14 feet and in 26 different colors.
Most Holmes garage doors come with nylon rollers, which are quieter and last longer than steel rollers. Holmes also offers detailed installation instructions that are geared towards the do-it-yourselfer, which many other manufacturers do not. If you plan to install a garage door yourself, Holmes may be one of your better choices.
