Garage Doors

Carriage Garage DoorsWe are ready to get bids on the four garage doors for our new home. Please either comment below or contact me via the contact form. We will be selecting the doors as soon as possible.

2 size 8’h x 9’w

1 size 8’h x 10’w

1 size 7’h x 5’w (utility door)

Our specifications are:

  • 3 main doors either carriage style or flush panel
  • Utility door flush panel
  • White steel
  • Insulated
  • Handles only, no hinges or other hardware
  • Keypad on one door
  • Garage door openers on all doors, utility door optional
  • Windows, optional

The tops of the doors are more than twelve inches below the garage ceiling.

I really like the look of the doors in the picture, but realize they are quite expensive. It’s the simple, clean style that we’d like to have, not the particular door. Think craftsman-style, flat panel, no curves. Give me your best ideas.

Note: I really, really, really hate the four-high, raised, short- or long-panel, wood-grain doors. Capital “H” hate.

    There are so many options available, the door pics look like alluminum which are very expensive and there are some less expensive doors on the market, could you call so I could ask a fee questions.

    We are very pleased to provide you with a carriage door quote for your new home. We custom design and build all of our doors here in Sandy. Many of the doors we have built are shown on our website. We ship our doors nationwide but take a special interest in local jobs. We will work with you to design the specific door you are looking for… no mail order, pre-designed, catalog doors here! Only first class custom work. Then we will build your door from scratch using the finest materials available and finally install it for you. We use only commercial/heavy duty hardware (hinges, rollers, and track) to install your door. We also only use 3/4 hp Liftmaster Professional Series openers (chain, belt or jack-shaft styles) to ensure longevity and trouble free operation. Our wood doors come with an 8-year guarantee against failure in workmanship, materials and finish. Many companies claim to be the best but we know that we build the best available wood doors, we install them ourselves, and we service them and stand behind them for as long as you own them. Your doors can be ready to install in as few as two weeks from the time of design approval! We are registered with the Better Business Bureau so you can be sure that we provide what we promise and that you will be very happy with the products and services you receive from CHD! Your quote will arrive shortly and I hope that we will hear from you soon.

    Thanks to all of you. I look forward to getting your bids. For the record, I like the style of the door in the picture, but the door we choose does not need to specifically match it by any means.

    Jim, you are welcome to call. Shoot me a message and I’ll send you my phone number.

    Look at clopay.com and find the doors you like then call the local Clopay dealer under where to buy and get a price from them. The door in the picture actually looks like a flush steel door with composite overlay to make the decorative carriage style look. I am from Texas and can give you my prices on anything you see that you like so you will know around what the price should be.

  • Alison Moore Smith July 6, 2010, 10:06 pm

    Thanks, Joshua. Clopay has a door I really like, but they don’t make it in a 10 foot width! In fact, word is, they make “pretty much every other door” in that width. Sheesh!

    Thanks, Simon. We moved in the house in October 2010. Garage doors were installed some months ago.

    Steel garage doors are used everywhere in Australia. Becareful when oranising transport and make sure the are wrapped up correctly and they encased in a steel covering. That way it will arrive undamaged to your site 🙂
