CARRIAGE HOUSE STYLE GARAGE DOOR FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONSAs the area's leading garage door installer, we know a lot about carriage house style garage doors — and we get asked a lot of questions. We are always happy to offer our experience, and we have compiled a list of some of the most frequently asked questions we encounter about this garage door option.
WHAT IS A CARRIAGE HOUSE GARAGE DOOR?Carriage house garage doors have a long history that dates back to when homeowners used their garages to store their horse-drawn carriage. These doors have a rustic charm and consist of two large gates you can customize to include windows. In the past, people had to open these doors by hand. With our carriage house doors, we can install an advanced opener system that will do the heavy lifting for you.
WHAT ARE THE STYLE FEATURES OF CARRIAGE HOUSE GARAGE DOORS?
Carriage house garage doors are characterized by their swing-out appearance. These doors are modeled after the early carriage houses. The carriages were eventually replaced with cars, but the garage doors still operated the same — they were designed to open horizontally and swing out so that you could access your car.
The nice thing about today’s carriage house style doors is that while they look like those old doors, they have the convenience of modern operation. They can be opened remotely, and they rise up and roll back into your garage with modern overhead operation, just like any contemporary garage door.
For a truly traditional carriage house garage door look, you need wood. DistribuDoors has plenty of quality wood carriage house style doors to choose from.Wood isn’t the only option for a carriage house style door, though. Some people prefer the low maintenance and durability of steel. That’s why we also offer composite doors, with a steel core and wood cladding outside, as well as doors with Ultra-Grain® wood finish. Either way, you end up with a tough steel door that looks and feels like real natural wood.
