Application: Barns & Garages

Carriage Houses and Garages

Transoms are a mainstay in carriage houses and garages built in the 19th and 20th centuries. Styles differ, but long transoms over garage doors and smaller transoms in select locations are common.

Hints: Freestanding transoms should be ordered with sills on the bottom -- especially if the transoms are placed on a side of the building that receives weather.

Kind Words From Our Customers

"I just wanted to leave a message at how happy we are with our transom windows. We ordered 4 last year to create a room divider between our living and dining room. The dimensions were perfect, and the windows were very good quality. They arrived right on time, and in perfect condition (the wrapping was excellent). Thank you for an excellent product." -- J.D., Laurel Hill, FL
