Benefits of Factory Finish

  • Tried and tested products – Our expert craftsman have 20+ years of experience and they know what products work and how to apply them.
  • Fully sealed – often when doors are finished in the field edges can be missed and the overall integrity of the finish can be lacking.

Our Custom Color Match Process

Our craftsman are also experts in color matching. We offer a seamless and highly attentive color matching experience. Gone are the days of not getting the colors and results you are expecting.


1. Color Matching

Mixing custom colors can take longer than the average order because we're committed to getting it right. The process for formulating unique combinations of specialty bases and pigments takes time, so be sure that your production schedule is open on this extra work! To get started once you place an order just send us a color swatch.

2. Color Approval

Carriage House Door ships the color sample back to you for your review and approval. If you are not 100% happy with the color matching, simply send the pieces back to us and we will re-work the matching process.


3. Garage Door Finishing

Once the approval has been received, our mixing experts will create a custom finish based on the final approved combinations (we will need to have the approved color sample before the door can be schedule for production).  Once the finish is created, our experts will finish and seal the door*.

*Please note that there may be slight variations to the door due to the stain batch and wood batch.
