A carriage style garage door will offer your home a unique and beautiful addition. This type of door has been around before home garages even existed. The original carriage style door was used for the elite to keep their horses housed. The doors leading into the carriage house were usually swinging wooden doors that permitted both the horse and carriage to enter into easily. Thick iron hinges that held the doors at their sides accompanied the wood doors.
Modern carriage style garage doors do not swing open like they used to. However, they are made to mimic the look of the old carriage door. For this reason, they will function by rolling-up in order to open. To maintain the carriage house aesthetic modern carriage style garage doors also have overlays to add the decorative details to create an authentic look. These details give an aged appearance while enjoying the modern amenities.
You would choose a carriage style garage door if you are building a more traditional style home. Contemporary styles use clean, straight lines with minimal decorative detail. Carriage style garage doors offer you a timeless look and give you a great deal of warm and welcoming curb appeal.
