Our Founder

Don Rees started out as the builder, designer, and owner of Rees Builders. He started building authentic one-of-a-kind homes in 1976. His house building projects often incorporated his own wooden doors.

Don created his first swing-out carriage garage doors on a custom home in 1995. Soon his idea found a home in all his projects and became a significant part of Rees Builders. Don found a market for his handcrafted doors. His doors stood above standard garage doors in their quality, unique design, and operation. Soon business drove Don into creating Real Carriage Door & Sliding Hardware. Don continues to oversee daily operations, create new designs, and continues to innovate the idea of what a door can be.

One of the best parts about sliding doors is that there are several operation options to choose from. Each type of sliding door system has its unique advantages and use cases. Learn the difference between standard, bi-part, bypass, pocket, and wall mounted and discover which sliding door operation is the best option for your space.
