The first thing you need to do when choosing a new garage door is to understand your needs.
So when you design your own garage doors you have the right tools and know how to make the most out of the door.
A steel framed garage can be made from galvanised or colour coated steel and is a cost effective option.
A wooden structure provides the greatest versatility and is the most traditional type of construction.
Fibreglass or GRP is a fully insulated material, it is strong and can be moulded into almost any shape.
Choosing the door material will depend on your budget and the style of your home. Consider factors such as:
Insulation, Security, Cost, Service life and Energy efficiency
Modern garage doors offer insulation, security and energy efficiency, and they can also be attractive to look at.
The motor that opens and closes your garage door also needs careful consideration.
Manual: A manual system uses a handle to pull a cord to open the door.
Automatic: An automatic system is operated with a remote control.
Wireless: A wireless system uses coded signals to open and close your garage door.
One of the most important considerations when choosing a new garage door is safety. A properly installed and maintained door will safeguard your family and your belongings.
If the springs are faulty or cables snap, not only can your door become jammed, but this can be very dangerous.
You can minimise the risk of injury by having your door regularly serviced by a qualified and certified professional such as our teams.
If you have a garage with an up and over style door, then it is likely that the springs will need to be replaced at some point.
If your door is hanging unevenly, or is bouncing on its tracks, this could be due to worn springs.
Garage Door Servicing
Regular servicing will ensure that your door is kept in good working order and will help to minimise the risk of an accident.
Regular maintenance will also ensure that your warranty remains valid.
Our garage door engineers can carry out a range of checks including:
• Lubricating all moving parts

By maintaining your garage door on a regular basis, you will reduce the risk of a breakdown and prolong its service life.
