Reclaimed/Vintage Garage Doors from Carriage House Door Company

Sometimes modern building materials simply can’t achieve that rustic quality you’re trying to achieve. Thankfully, Carriage House Door Company can build you a custom reclaimed/vintage garage door, using found materials like salvaged wood from old barns.

Smart Garage from Control4

Once you finally have the garage door of your dreams integrated into your Control4 system, then you can control it from anywhere inside or outside your home! For example, if your garage door is left open during the day while you are headed to work, you can receive a text message after a pre-specified amount of time, log in remotely from your smartphone, and close it. Or if the kids leave it open after a certain hour in the evening, your Control4 system can flash the lights in the home to alert you that it is ajar.

*Note that some of these garage doors may take more time than others to integrate with depending on their opener capabilities. Be sure to check with your Control4 dealer to be certain your dream door can be seamlessly added to your home automation system.
