New Carriage Door Transforms Garage
Apple Door Systems
Mar 27, 2012
A customer in the Fredericksburg area did not like the look of his garage door. His home was designed with a beautiful arched garage door opening but the original door installed was a traditional garage door with squared off glass in the top section. Since the glass did not follow the curve of the opening header, the two end glass panels were "clipped" resulting in an odd looking design. Apple Door of Fredericksburg was contacted to see if there was a solution to this problem. The process began last November. During the process site visits were made, designs were proposed and after 3 months, the homeowner agreed to have a new Classica 3000 carriage door installed. Complete with an arched glass top section, the new garage door accomplished two important goals. First, no more "clipped" corners. Instead the arched top glass follows the contour of the arched masonary opening. Second, this new, fresh design gives the house better curb appeal. In addtion, the new door was extremely well insulated with an R-value of 13.35. Even though Apple Door of Fredericksburg was not the cheapest bid sought, the homeowner elected to work with them due to the high degree of customer service and commitment to solving the customer's problem rather than just "spitting out a price". By working together a better door solution was found.
