Carriage Style Garage Doors
Does your house evoke a rustic style of yore that you wish had that extra old-timey touch? Are you planning for your next home and want to add a stylistic blast from the past? If you are nodding your head “yes” to either of these questions, then carriage style garage doors are for you.
The Perfect Carriage Style Garage Door For You
Much like snowflakes, everyone has their own unique home exterior design taste, and garage doors are no exception. Whether you are remodeling your current home or planning for a new one, we at AAA Garage Door Repair will help you find the perfect carriage style garage door for you. Here are some considerations to make when finding the perfect carriage style garage door.
You can’t pick a carriage style garage door without knowing what color will best complement the rest of your home. Consider what will do the best job of boosting curb appeal and matching your home. If you are thinking of multiple color options, take a look at a paint swatch to find a more specific shade. If you say you want a blue garage door, that could mean anything from aqua blue to cornflower blue, so it’s good to be as specific as possible. You should also find out about paint samples so that the color comes out as you expect.
It’s safe to say that carriage style garage doors pull off an old-fashion aesthetic that might make you believe you live in the countryside rather than the city. The question is which design you want for those doors. There’s the crossbuck or X’s exterior that is most familiar, but other options are also worth considering for your carriage style garage door.
You also want to think about the desired movement or style of opening for your carriage style garage doors. Most carriage doors swing open to resemble their older counterparts, which inspired their design. However, it is possible to install a garage door with a carriage style exterior that operates with an overhead or rolling motion. Consider which movement you prefer for your garage door anytime to depart and return home when making your selection.
Of course, you can’t have any kind of garage door if you don’t know what material will be used for it. Most carriage garage doors are made of wood. The types of wood used for a carriage style garage door can be anything from composite wood, cedar, or anything else. However, steel and vinyl are also options for carriage style garage door material.
Why Carriage Style Garage Doors
Now that you know what you need to think about when finding your perfect carriage style garage door, let’s take a look at why you should consider installing a carriage style garage door. The primary benefits of a carriage style garage door include more space, security, and a boosted curb appeal. The fact that these doors usually swing open allows for more storage space for any additional items. Where security is concerned, these garage doors can be shut with any opener system and can, additionally, work with a chain lock, and their thickness makes them difficult to break down. Finally, if you want to boost your home’s curb appeal and give it a chance to fetch a high price when you eventually put it on the market, then a carriage garage door will do both those things easily.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I perform some garage door maintenance myself?
You can do small things for your garage door to help keep it running right. Every few months, clean out the tracks and lubricate the rollers. Additionally, perform a visual and auditory inspection every once in a while. Keep an eye and an ear out for signs of wear and tear or damage. You can clean your garage door and weatherstripping as well. Everything else should be left to professionals.
Do you replace parts?
We do replace parts. Sometimes, repair isn’t feasible if parts of your garage door are damaged too much. In that case, we’ll replace them instead.
Which springs are better, torsion or extension springs?
Torsion springs are better. They cost more, but they are more durable and less likely to cause injury upon breaking. If you have the money to purchase torsion springs, they are always a better option.
Why is my garage door making so much noise?
Unusual noises during the opening and closing process are often a sign that something is wrong with your garage door. You should contact a professional if you notice any unpleasant noises emanating from your garage door.
