Carriage doors are a popular garage door design that resembles the traditional look of a coach house, while adding historic flavor to the structure. Carriage styles include side-hinged, which open inside or outside, and sliding models, which require no interior or exterior space to operate. A signature feature of the carriage door is the unique mortise-and-tenon joinery construction of each piece. The male and female pieces fit snuggly and securely together to give years of worry-free operation.

These gorgeous garage doors can be personalized with ornamental hinges and hardware, and colored with a wide variety of paints and stains. Adding custom-cut windows to the upper portion of the double-door design allows natural light into the interior of the garage space. Because they take up such a large area on the outside of the home, garage doors give homeowners an excellent opportunity to exercise their design chops.
