Carriage House Style Garage Door Continues to Increase in Popularity
One out of every five residential garage doors sold in North America today is a carriage house style door, according to a recent nationwide survey conducted by Door & Access Magazine. Sales of carriage house doors have tripled since 2005, now accounting for 19% of the typical North American door dealers’ residential garage door sales.
When asked “What is the most popular upscale carriage-style door model you sell?” the Amarr Classica Collection ranked in the top 5 models mentioned.
Enhance Curb Appeal
One of the most important factors in a consumer’s decision to purchase a carriage house style door is its unique look and added curb appeal.
Amarr recently introduced two new offerings to the Classica Collection that provide increased variety and style options:
Amarr now offers 42 factory- painted two-tone color combinations that create more distinction and definition to the unique Classica designs. The two-tone paint combinations provide significant added color dimension for those who want a unique look and enhanced curb appeal. These different design options can be tailored specifically to your home’s façade.
Amarr recently introduced three new dual-directional woodgrain colors – Golden Oak, Walnut and Mahogany – that offer a more realistic, natural woodgrain appearance. These colors are available in Amarr’s Classica, Oak Summit, Stratford, and Heritage Collections of steel garage doors. The new dual-directional woodgrain colors offer a horizontal woodgrain pattern on the rails of a garage door section and a vertical woodgrain pattern on the stiles and panels. The result is a much more distinctive woodgrain pattern that can be seen from the end of a typical driveway. Dual-directional woodgrain colors are a great way for homeowners to mimic the look of natural wood but with the practicality and affordability of a steel garage door.
If you’re thinking of replacing a tired garage door in an effort to boost your home’s curb appeal this fall, consider the classic carriage house door, whose popularity has only continued to grow over the last century. With a timeless design that can be specifically tailored to your house, it’s a choice that both you- and future owners of your home- can happily live with for a long time.
