The garage door frame is constructed using kiln-dried 1 ½" Douglas Fir wood for its stability and its resistance to decay. Each sections meeting rail has a ¼" shiplap joint to act as a weather blockade. Together, the frame is assembled using mortise and tenon jointery and Titebond III adhesive.
The backside of the garage door frame, or what is visible from the inside of your building, is a ¼" Laun plywood that creates the finished look. Laun can be stained or painted.
All Neubauer Carriage doors come insulated with polyisocyanurate rigid, foil faced foam insulation with an R-value of 10.
We use 3" or 5" V-match, 3" bead board, raised panel or flat panels to create the face of the garage door. Inlay woods are fastened together with stainless steel fasteners and Titebond III adhesive.
We use 1x6 on the vertical trim boards and on the top and middle rails. A 1x8 is used on the bottom rails. Overlay/trim is available in multiple profiles: square, 1/2" thumb nail, and glazing (30 degree bevel) for historic appearance. The trim is adhered by using Titebond III adhesive and stainless steel fasteners.
*By using a "deep V" groove in a center style, creates the look of a pair of traditional carriage style doors.
All garage doors are designed with windows come with true divided light windows using standard 1/8" window glass. Also available is insulated glass up to ¾" thick, tempered and obstructed window glass.

October Builders of Sunapee, NH write: I am very pleased with Andrew's doors and would recommend him to anyone. They are of the highest quality both in materials and workmanship. He completed them sooner than the expected date, supplied all needed hardware and delivered the doors! I've used many garage door companies on previous projects, but Andrew is the only supplier I'll use from now on for Carriage House style doors! The attention to detail is evident in every aspect.Thanks again!
O'Reilly family of Montauk, NY say; We are so thrilled with our new custom built carriage doors. The workmanship, attention to detail, and personal service of your company were unparalleled. Our doors are truly a work of art.
Craig of Pine Plains, NY wanted to say; Just wanted to let you know how happy I am with the wonderful doors you designed and built for my garage project. Installation went without a hitch. Your "white glove" delivery of the doors was a great help and convenience and not a single scratch or dent, amazing! I followed your instructions regarding a light sanding of the doors before I applied 2 coats of Sikkens Log & Siding. The natural grain of the cedar looks amazing. Even the inside side of the doors looks great. I spoke with many different garage door companies and looked at several doors before hearing about the great work you do. Boy am I glad I discovered your doors before pulling the trigger on a prefab door that was half the quality and twice the price of your doors. Thanks for working with me on the details and offering your advice. Everyone that drives by my place slows down to admire the doors and several have taken the time to stop and knock on my front door to ask about them. Feel free to use me as a reference as I am 100% satisfied!!Regards, Craig
