Why Carriage House Garage Doors? The Inspiration and the Modern Trend

Just after the turn of the last century, the car was becoming a major part of the modern lifestyle. As horse & carriage combos were gradually replaced by cars, homeowners started using the “carriage houses” where they stored their carriages as the world’s first garages. Homeowners literally moved the carriage out and the car in.

Fast forward to this century, and history repeats itself! Carriage house style doors are showing up on homes across the country. Made from steel, wood, or faux wood composite, modern carriage house doors stylishly emulate the look of their historical predecessors… while including all the modern amenities, of course!

 

About 20% of new doors sold are in the carriage house style.

Each of Metro Garage Door’s partner manufacturers offer carriage house doors. We have a wide variety window, color, and material options. These doors are moderately priced, come in many styles and options, and are covered by manufacturers’ warranties. We can help you navigate the options that fit your budget and your home’s exterior.

What People Are Saying About Metro Garage Doors

Top Rated Garage Door Company in Minneapolis – St. Paul, but don’t take our word for it…
Very happy experiences with Metro Door. We've used them before, to install a new opener and for repairs from backing into the door. Always prompt, professional, friendly, and reasonably priced. This time, we needed to replace a 30-year-old opener on our seldom-used small door. After analyzing our situation, the technician, Randy, provided a much better strategy -- moving the 5-year-old opener to the small door and installing the new opener on the big door (the one we use all the time). This also allowed us to install a really quiet belt-driven opener on the big door. Thanks Randy! Great experience all around.

I had a new garage door installed. My initial garage door had a weird problem -- it opened by itself! Our technician came out and was just fantastic. He replaced the opener (the maker of the opener, for instance, tried to send me a part that I could replace on a week-old opener). They fully replaced the opener and the wire and it works great. And Randy was exceedingly professional and helped me understand everything. Great service.

Outstanding service and great pricing! My garage door flipped out and luckily someone referred me to this firm. From the minute they answered my call until the door was fixed, they were simply great. Very prompt, courteous and very trustworthy. The tech was Dana and he was just wonderful answering all my questions and making excellent suggestions. The door has never operated so well and so quiet!. Thanks again for a great job.
