Enclosing a Carport Offers Home Improvement and Appeal

A customer wanted to enclose their carport for additional storage and security but wanted to ensure that the design matched their unique home exterior.


The homeowner had a vision for a new custom carport door matching the architecture of the home and existing window design. Unfortunately, the attached carport lacked the headroom and depth for a traditional garage door and opener.


DH Pace built a custom wood door that was side-opening, instead of a standard overhead door. The side-opening door was then paired with an opener that used a rod design to move the swinging doors to allow to allow for the entire system to be hidden away and maximize space.

The door was also designed to match the look and feel of the existing home.


Residential garage door applications aren’t always standards doors, parts and installations. Many times custom applications or products are called for. Luckily, DH Pace has the ability and talented craftsmanship available to handle unique applications like this.
