If you’re seeking a classic style for your garage door, a carriage house garage door might be the answer. These doors immediately call back to an earlier time, when garage doors were pulled open by hand, swinging out or folding in, rather than conveniently lifting up as the best doors do today. Of course, these doors do feature modern overhead operation, giving you the best of both worlds.
Guide to Carriage House Garage Doors
For the best carriage house-style garage doors, look no further! Our carriage house-style doors offer a wide range of styles and materials, from the beauty of natural wood to the practicality of steel and composite.
Carriage House Garage Door Types
One of the biggest advantages of carriage house garage doors is the variety. What makes a garage door carriage house style is more about how it looks than how it’s made. Carriage house garage doors come in many different types and can contain natural wood, steel, composite materials and insulation. They are available in simple, one-layer styles or as many as five layers for enhanced detailing and insulation.
Wood doors generally offer a more traditional look and provide higher insulation ratings. Steel designs can feature a faux wood finish to mimic a traditional door, enhance a conventional paneled door with windows and hardware or modernize the carriage house style with contemporary window placements.
A Variety of Eye-Catching Styles and Options
Naturally, as the name would indicate, these garage doors go perfectly with carriage house-style homes. However, they fit in with many home styles — including Craftsman and bungalows, mission revival homes, Spanish and Mediterranean-inspired architecture, Tudor houses and ranch-style homes — thanks in part to the many customization options you can enjoy with these doors. With window, panel and decorative hardware options, various finishes — ranging from Glacier White to Ultra-Grain Walnut — and your choice of whether or not to add insulation, you can make a carriage house garage door fit your specific home style and needs.
