Contemporary Carriage Doors Can Open Overhead, Instead of Swinging Out

The most basic residential garage door is an aluminum, steel or fiberglass overhead door. It is sectioned off into panels that gather at your garage’s ceiling when opened by a motorized opener. You may have noticed that carriage-style doors are popping up in the poshest new neighborhoods, but don’t forget they are the original garage doors and are ideal for historic homes as well. Swinging out, attached with a hinge, is how all garage doors used to be, but contemporary carriage-style doors are constructed to open overhead as well.
