Oversized Garage Doors

One of the things that sets Moulton Custom Door apart from other companies is our skill and experience with larger garage doors. These doors are taller or wider than traditional doors and take special consideration when designing and engineering them. We pride ourselves in our work and expertise in this class of door and we are one of a handful of companies that works with these on a regular basis. From a massive single 'moving wall' to false center posts to give the illusion of more than one door, you won't find anyone better.

This owner knew exactly what he wanted: a garage door 7' high in just three sections.  Our preference is to break such a door into 4 sections, for smoother operation.  This is our only three section in 7' high out there. Five years later, door is still operating satisfactorily. This...

It took a while to come up with a design for this remodel. The owner trusted us to simulate two smaller doors while maintaining the same size door. We used a false center post which protrudes two inches above the surface of the door, creating a shadow that fools the...

Note arched horizontal center munton. The architect designed these doors so that the top of the windows become part of the header and trim for opening, thus creating a flawless look to the entire structure. As seen in the photo above, the curved window panel was innovative,

Designed by owner. Owner and contractor were a pleasure to work with. Owner very kindly commented on our 'artistic' approach to designing our doors! In the photo above, it is hard to decide which looks better; The House or the Garage! We think our door makes a difference.

Once again, these wide doors require more engineering and some finess in order for them to operate in a truly reliable fashion. As seen in the photo above, this door was designed by the architect to represent a multiple horizontal panel door to match the rest of the building. Designed...
