Swinging Door Considerations

Here are some key features and considerations related to custom swing out garage doors:

Design and Customization

Custom swing open garage doors offer a high degree of design flexibility. They can be custom-made to fit specific sizes, styles, and architectural requirements. You can choose from a wide range of materials, such as wood, steel, aluminum, or fiberglass, to match the aesthetics of your home.

Swing Direction

Swing out carriage doors can swing open from the center or the sides, depending on your preference and the layout of your garage. You can also choose between single swing out doors or double doors that open in opposite directions.

Space Requirements

Swinging carriage doors require space in front of the garage to open fully. You need to ensure that there is sufficient clearance for the doors to swing outward without any obstructions, such as walls, vehicles, or landscaping. Consider the available space in your driveway and the proximity of neighboring structures or objects.

Hardware and Hinges

Swing garage doors rely on sturdy hinges and hardware to support their weight and facilitate smooth opening and closing. High-quality hinges and hardware are crucial for long-lasting performance and durability.


Just like other types of garage doors, swing garage doors can be insulated to improve energy efficiency and provide better temperature control in your garage. Weatherstripping and sealing mechanisms help to keep out drafts, dust, and moisture.

Security and Safety

Swing open garage doors can be equipped with locking mechanisms and additional security features to ensure the safety of your garage. We can discuss security options to determine the best choices for your needs.

Professional Installation

Custom swing open garage doors typically require professional installation due to their unique configuration and precise fitting. You can count on the pros at Keen Garage Doors to get your door installed perfectly, ensuring long-lasting results!

Jeramie Keen of Keen Garage Doors arrived at my home within one hour of my distress call. He got my mangled garage door open so I could drive my car out of the garage and onto my driveway. He proceeded to quote a replacement door, new California code opener with emergency battery all ready to install within 2 weeks. In this business climate who would have thought all of this would be possible within one hour? Just amazing! Thank you Jeramie. Your company is my new go to garage door source. I couldn’t be more pleased. Thank you.

Great experience with Jeramie and his crew Skyler and Seth. I appreciate that Jeramie helped me upgrade the hardware for my 2 garage doors as I made the mistake of purchasing the doors elsewhere with hardware that was not advisable with heavier glass doors. With a speedy and efficient installation, I’m very happy with the finished product. Would definitely recommend Keen and would hire again in the future - Mike in Forestville

Keen was friendly, helpful and communicative from the start. My old house didn't have room for a regular sized garage door and I wanted a specific look. They delivered a custom built wooden door (with windows) that is just beautiful. It took awhile for it to be built, but they were accurately communicative about how long it would take. They installed it as expected and even sent a painter back to touch up a few areas to make it perfect. Thank you Keen! I highly recommend them.

Seamless service with keen garage door five star experience I recently had The pleasure of upgrading my garage door with keen garage door, and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the process from start to finish. Leslie, the office manager, set the tone with her outstanding organizational skills and attention to detail during the initial conversation. She was not only a pleasure to speak with, but also made sure that my press questions were answered, Josh Their knowledgeable rep was prompt in stopping by to review the various options available. He provided a comprehensive quote that was straightforward and competitively priced no hidden and fees or surprises. When it came time for installation, Van and Jodi were the technicians who handled everything they arrived on schedule they were professional, took time to walk me through the use and maintenance of my new garage door. The level of customer service. The quality of the installation in the value of the price paid were all top-notch. I would highly recommend keen garage door to anyone in need of their services services. They truly stand out in a sea of competitors for professionalism and customer care.

What a fantastic experience from the moment my garage door broke. They immediately came and did a quick repair. And then came back and replace my 35 year old door with a brand new door and it looks fantastic. They were on time they were courteous they were neat clean, quiet, and exceptionally professional. I would recommend them any day of the week.
