Real wood is warm, inviting, and naturally beautiful. Wood garage doors from Carriage House are built with the latest modern technology but have the ageless and authentic look of a century-old carriage door. These doors can be custom built, so you can design yours to stand out from all others.

Customizing Your Door:

  • Choose the style of door you want; there are several options for both single and double doors.
  • Choose your wood. Pick a quality stain-grade or paint-grade wood, such as cedar, hemlock, mahogany, or birch.
  • Choose a window style.
  • Choose decorative hardware or additional accent pieces to complement your door.

In addition to its classic beauty, wood is a renewable resource that acts as a natural sound barrier to help keep your garage and home quiet. If your wood door is damaged, you can choose to repair only damaged panels rather than replacing your entire door. Wood garage doors do require periodic maintenance, however. Failure to properly care for your wood door could eventually lead to rot.

Steel doors are heavy duty and built to last. They are very similar in style to the wooden ones but are more energy efficiency and require very little maintenance. 

Carriage House steel doors are distinctive. Their construction in cludes sculptured edge detail. You can choose windows in a variety of styles and specify the number of windows you want depending on how much light you want to let into your garage. Pick from several different types of glass, including smoked, seeded, and obscure. For the door, you have several colors and stains to choose from as well as the option to add an extra layer of insulation to increase your energy savings.
