Features of Carriage Garage Doors

Before the time of automobiles, many well-to-do homes had carriage houses. These sheltered the family’s carriage and had to be operated by hand. In order to give a modern garage door an Old World feel inspired by this era, carriage style garage doors have several unique, customizable features:

  • Construction: While carriage style garage doors are typically made of wood, you still get to choose the species as well as the paint color or stain. Then you decide how thick you want the rail and stile to be. Insulated doors are a particularly beneficial option if you plan to use your garage for more than just parking your car.
  • Design: Carriage style is a category of garage doors with plenty of variety. Choose from a plethora of window shapes, glass types and panel layouts to suit your preferences.
  • Hardware: Detailed wrought iron hardware includes hinges, knockers, lift handles and studs, each of which adds to the carriage house aesthetic.

Home Styles that Look Best with Carriage Style Garage Doors

With so many customizable options, you have many different configurations to choose from.
