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.

What People Are Saying About Metro Garage Doors
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.
