Garage doors for a long time were manually operated forcing the driver to stop the car and come out of the cart to open the door and the take some time to close it once they have driven the car into the safety of the garage. All these steps made old type garage doors very inconvenient as compared to the modern garage doors. With the increase in population and the amount of activity that every individual has to take part in many people do not have the time to perform all the above procedures just to be able to pack or leave their packing.

The more stately homes had carriage houses. These were like barns. They were completely separate from the home. They offered a place for horses and their carriages to reside. The separate carriage house was for the rich of the time. Their use was practical with a touch of high style. They were all practicality and not a fashion thing

When installing them you have to ensure that the safety of the car and the driver are fully taken into consideration. Besides these factors you must also be able to come up with designs of them that are easy to operate and also efficient enough to give the user good value on the investment.
