Custom Made Mediterranean Style Wood Garage Door in San Diego, CA

Share with

When we are first approached for a new custom garage door project most of our clients understand the high impact a custom designed garage door will bring to their home's front elevation. This particular San Diego home was lacking character and missing that factor that would give it back its Spanish Mediterranean style. The originally installed steel overhead door was bland and boring hiding the true character and beauty of the home. It was evident that something needed to be done and that is just what the homeowner did when we were entrusted and commissioned to custom design, craft and install this gorgeous Mediterranean style garage door!

The selected garage door design was a great choice by the client as the simple tongue and groove vertical slats framed with a number of stiles and rails stayed within the Mediterranean architectural door styles. In collaboration with our design team the garage door design idea was recreated and drafted to suit the home's dimensions. The  wood species selection was done in mahogany for strength and durability. However, the downside of mahogany is the natural red coloring engraved in its grain. Luckily our finishers are able to bleach these red tones out of natural mahogany wood and then stain the wood to match practically any stain color available without having the wood's natural color interfere with the outcome. Several samples were made and given to the client for approval prior to the garage door installation to ensure the proper stain color was matched to  the client's satisfaction.

To finish off the custom garage door project and give back this home its architectural entitlement the jambs were encased with the same wood material used for the custom garage door and stained to match. The results, as you see in the images, were outstanding. You are able to appreciate how a bland, modest-looking home blossomed into a full blown architecturally rich home you would find along the coastal region of the Mediterranean. All this by simply replacing the existing garage door!

Mahogany Custom Made Garage Door

Perfect at any angle, this custom mahogany garage door was carefully designed and crafted in a Mediterranean style for this San Diego home. Though we used mahogany to manufacture the custom garage door there's hardly a trace of the red tonalities typically found in this type of wood. The reason behind the missing red coloration is because we bleached the wood allowing us to apply any stain color needed to match what our client was looking for. Mahogany has beautiful linear and consistent grain which makes it desirable for many of our garage door projects because of its refined finished look. The simple paneling and routered trim edges give this Mediterranean garage door an authentic appearance which dramatically enhanced the curb appeal of this San Diego home. Framing the garage door with matching jambs and stained wood casing resulted in a stunning result!

San Diego Custom Garage Doors

Dynamic Garage Doors are highly sought after for their unique and true architectural design. This custom wood garage door was custom designed and crafted with extra attention to detail so that the implementation on the home would be a natural fit that harmonized with the existing architectural elements.

The basic garage door design consists of vertical tongue and groove planking framed with a series of stiles and rails to appear like four individual carriage door panels. For durability and strength the wood of choice was solid mahogany which naturally tends to have red tonalities that we sometimes bleach out to achieve subtle earthy colors such as seen on this custom garage door. Since the home had a Spanish Mediterranean flavor this garage door design was the perfect choice to implement and increase the home's curb appeal.

As a rule of thumb, we strive to design our garage doors on a case by case basis so that the garage door upgrade appears as a natural architectural element. Our custom designed wood doors harmonize with each home project we work on so that they don't compete against the style of the home.

After: Custom Garage Door Makeover

San Diego, CA - The curb appeal of your home can be affected by the massive curb appeal square footage the garage door takes up. Often overseen, the garage door is a fantastic, simple and efficient way to dramatically improve the curb appeal of most homes!

This San Diego Mediterranean style home was lacking that rich architectural essence typical of the Mediterranean style homes. Upgrading the garage door to one of our custom designed architectural garage doors worked wonders for the architecture of this home. This custom garage door was crafted in solid mahogany which was bleached and stained a warm caramel brown to pull in the existing color scheme and architectural elements. Often times we will bleach the red tones out of mahogany wood to achieve a certain stain color that can be interfered with by the natural red tones typical of this wood species. The casing surrounding the new custom garage door was also redone in the same bleached mahogany we used on the wood garage door to "frame" the new door which in turn gave it a clean  finish appearance that further enhanced the home's architectural beauty.

This custom Mediterranean style garage door gave back this home its unique style and architectural identity. We crafted the overhead door specifically to the proportions that would harmonize with the home instead of competing. The stain selection was done through trial samples from which the client chose prior to the garage door installation. At Dynamic Garage Door we dot our i's and cross our t's to achieve world-class results that are highly desirable when investing in upgrading old, dull and unsightly garage doors that hinder property value and aesthetic character of homes throughout America!

Before: A Lifeless Garage Door Problem

Before, this Mediterranean San Diego home looked tired and lifeless. The old garage door was not giving it justice in spite of the fact that it accounted for a great percentage of the home's curb appeal. Often times, the garage door is missed as an opportunity to enhance a home's curb appeal that can have a great impact on a home's appearance. Replacing the garage door has many benefits including but not limited to increasing the value of the home, improved insulation properties and longevity that a conventional, tin-can roll-up garage door will not. Considering the improvements a custom designed garage door can offer, the cost is ultimately a bargain well-worth investing in.
