Our Proven Process

Custom Wood Garage Doors by Designer Doors

The garage doors of many homes now encompass between 30% and 50% of the home's façade. With such a large blank canvas, it's the perfect opportunity to extend the style of your home and enhance the design details already in place. We offer a full range of custom wooden garage doors to address the unique needs of our customers.

When it comes to custom garage doors, Designer Doors leads the way in any doors design. From wooden garage doors to any other garage door designs, we set the industry standards. We take your custom garage door ideas, like the garage door within a door, and integrate your dreams into our custom wood doors. Designer Doors is your top-tier wood garage door and designer garage doors industry leader.

Of course, you have a number of different choices of door companies to work with on your project. Here's what sets Designer Doors apart from the competition:

Architectural Harmony™

We look at the whole project, not just the doors. We achieve the greatest, most pleasing, aesthetic effect by integrating your doors, shutters and gates with the architectural details that make your house unique.

Moisture Management

Our doors are built to withstand everything Mother Nature can dish out - with integral advanced moisture systems and doors specifically designed for hurricane-prone coastal areas. Our Moisture Management system prevents sagging and rotting and extends the life of your door.

Craftsmanship & Engineering

We have the technical ability and building know-how to include advanced features and functions such as wicket doors (door within a door), finished interiors, hidden struts, historical re-creations and large light sections. Everything comes down to our commitment to build the best doors we can using skilled craftsmen, advanced engineering and innovation.


Every project begins with a personal consultation. We work with you to get every detail right and to make sure you get the right product, expertly built and installed. With Designer Doors it's just one call. We take care of everything from initial measurements, design details, construction, delivery and expert installation. One company. Now that's reassuring.

Doors should...indeed, must...speak the same language as the architecture surrounding them.


Whether your home or structure is traditional, colonial, Victorian, Mediterranean, modern, contemporary, ranch, Spanish colonial or a pristine Craftsman bungalow, we handcraft entrances that will create instant curb appeal for your beautiful home. Our products are ideal for both new construction and replacement during remodeling and renovation. We begin with a personal consultation to make sure you're getting the right door for your home, your geographic area, and your budget.

Designer Doors manufactures quality custom wood garage doors, wooden front entry doors, matched walk-through garage doors plus real wood shutters and custom wood garden gates. Working with the unique architectural characteristics of each home, we build exterior wood doors that enhance your home's beauty while adding modern function and security. We build carriage style doors, traditional panel garage doors, garage doors with windows and without windows, garage doors with walk-through doors (wicket), original metal and copper clad doors and doors designed to withstand hurricane-force winds for areas that require windload rated doors in their building codes.

Architectural Harmony


Most often when you shop for doors, you'll see a number of different doors from which to choose. The concern is not about your house - rather you're asked to choose from what's available. Maybe it will work aesthetically, and maybe not.

Architectural Harmony changes that priority. We look at your house and your plans to determine what might be the best design for your house. The door, gate or shutter is then designed down to the smallest detail before we begin construction. It's a process that allows designers, architects and homeowners to really get it right.

Quality at every step is our promise to you.

30 years strong

For us, innovation is not a slogan. Our company started with innovation and it's the foundation of all we do.

We have more patents and innovations than any other garage door company.To name a few: [1] simulated center post, to make a double-wide door look like two carriage doors; [2] glass on more surface area of the top section of a garage door than anyone else; [3] 140 mph wind load capacity; [4] wicket doors (a "human door" cut into a garage door); and so much more. Share your dreams! Chances are, we can turn them into reality.

If you're in the process of designing or remodeling a home, it won't come as any surprise to you that there are a ton of products on the market that have been, let's say politely, "value engineered." Certainly there are times when budget is the only criteria and a selection of products is needed to fit those situations. The products are not designed for artisan and stick-built homes and the quality difference is readily apparent.

Our goal is to build garage doors that are suitable in any home, but are especially welcome in situations that require custom sizing and unique design. Most often, we install them in custom homes where a huge emphasis has been put on architectural details and quality construction. We fit right in.

Not sure where to start? No problem! We handle every detail from measuring to designing all the way through engineering, handcrafting and install.

If you've worked with other door companies before, you may find our approach to be quite different. We know our doors are. They're built to stand the test of time - not always the case with competitive products that are value-engineered. We start and finish, always, with you.
