Carriage doors are for single-car openings. If you are replacing a double-wide door, you will most likely need two sets of swing-out doors with a post in the middle. Another option is a three-door set like this. Contact us for ideas and options that will work for you.
Evergreen chooses fine materials for the strength and durability required in a functional swinging door. All carriage doors produced in our shop are ready for a high quality exterior finish of your choice, either stain or paint, we build them to the same high quality.
Your carriage doors should be completely sealed and finished prior to installation so that they are not exposed to moisture when they are raw. If a painted finish is desired, we recommend a top-quality oil based primer, and either oil based or latex paint -- of a light color (to avoid absorption of excessive heat). If a stained finish is your choice, a high quality stain and finish such as Sikkens Cetol Door and Window Finish is excellent. Evergreen does not paint or stain the doors at our shop. Most of our customers are matching their finish to other doors or trim on their home. Often those who thought they would be painting their doors change their minds when they see the beautiful wood grain of the carriage doors. The doors come sanded to 100 grit. If a finer finish is desired, Evergreen recommends a final finish sand prior to applying any finish.
Evergreen's carriage doors do not come pre-hung. Because of their size, it is best - both less expensive and safer - to ship them as individual doors. There are many options of hardware choices, depending upon your preference and the function of the doors. Since your installer will likely do some planing in the installation process, we do not pre-drill the doors.
Your contractor or a licensed carpenter can handle the job of installing swing-out carriage doors. Many of our handy customers have installed the doors themselves. Evergreen provides complete instructions, and is available by telephone to guide you through the process.
Carriage doors are excellent for converting a garage to an insulated space because they close tightly against doorstop which can be weather stripped. Wind just blows the doors more tightly closed. Evergreen carriage doors come with an astragal to cover the seam where the doors come together, and a sweep to seal the bottom.
The heavy duty automatic door opener that Evergreen Carriage Doors offers mounts on the door header and pushes the doors open with a flexing elbow-action.
Evergreen Carriage Doors prices doors according to the size of your door opening, and the style of the door you choose. We have 8' x 7' carriage doors starting around $3595 for a set of two doors.
