Garage door or Carriage Door? What is the difference?
Many people get a little confused by these terms, but there’s no reason to!
A garage door is a door that is used to close the entrance to your garage, regardless of its style or opening mechanism.
A carriage door is a door system that opens and closes by swinging in or out of the doorway.

The history of Carriage Doors
Carriage doors have been around for at least 100 years! Incredibly popular during the 19th century, the elite used wooden carriage doors as a simple door system that allowed their carriage and horses to enter and exit their “carriage houses" quickly.
Several decades later, carriage doors are now a beautiful door trend that incorporates history and design. Although modern carriage doors still keep the same classic design and construction techniques from the past, there are now much more sophisticated and customizable.
Nowadays, carriage doors can be constructed with several different wood species, construction techniques and mixed with other materials, such as glass, and steel. Carriage doors can even be automatized with the assistance of an automatic door opener.
