What Are Carriage Style Garage Doors?
Resembling real carriage houses, Carriage style garage doors are ornate with “antique” charm. They are characterized by decorative windows along the top and hardware mimicking the handles and hinges of real carriage house doors.
Some carriage style garage doors maintain the traditional, swing-open design of genuine carriage house doors. Others have the hinges and hardware for aesthetics purposes while still operating like regular garage doors, using motors and remotes for convenience.
Real wood models are available, and metal doors can feature embossed wood-grain texture for aesthetics while still offering the strength and durability of steel. Overhead Door’s carriage style door collections are steel and wood.
In addition to materials and insulation, you can also choose from a variety of:
- Window layouts
- Decorative hardware choices
- Colors and stains
These features can help your garage doors complement your home’s exterior. The ability to make these customizations can enhance the aesthetic without impacting durability against the elements!
Is a Carriage Style Garage Door Right for My Home?
Carriage style garage doors work especially well with rustic or period-style homes, which have architectural features (like porches with white columns, turrets, etc.) that complement the old-world feel of the doors. However, carriage style garage doors work with any home’s exterior.
