Garage Door Buying Guide

Garage Door Buying Guide

With such a wide range of door styles, materials and colours it can be a bit bewildering knowing where to start your search for a door. As such, we have put together a few key pointers to help you on your way.

Things to consider:

What would you like to achieve?

Do you simply want to replace your existing door with a like-for-like modern replacement or do you want to improve the functionality of your garage space? If so, what would you like to achieve?

Matching the style of you home

Does your home have any particular design features you want to match or do you want the door to make a statement or blend in?


Whilst we have a door to match every budget, there can be a big difference between differing styles and finishes. A visit to our showroom will show you all the doors available and give you a steer as the cost implications.

Where is the door going?

If the door is built into your home it may be worth considering insulation, if it is for a rental property it would be sensible to get the most robust door available. Drop in to our showroom to see the doors in action or give us a ring to find out more.

What sort of doors do you want

There is a wide range of doors and styles to suit any scenario. Drop in to our showroom to see the doors in action or give us a ring to find out more.

Selecting the right supplier

If you have a preference for one manufacturer over another we will be pleased to discuss this with you. Alternatively we can guide you as to the manufacturer best suited to your requirements. Drop in to our showroom to see what the various manufacturers offer or give us a ring to find out more.

Matching the style to your property

If you have a particular design style to your home or would like the door to either blend in or make a statement then we can help. Either arrange a FREE survey, bring some photos into the showroom or give us a ring to discuss further.

Choosing the right type/colour/materials

With a huge range of styles and colours available it is worth considering whether you want to match the window frames, brick colour, front doors or any other feature. Drop in to our showroom to see the huge range of options available or give us a ring to find out more.

Design/production drawings

If your architect or builder has created some technical drawings showing the door we can identify the closest match or discuss bespoke door options with you.


As important element as the design and installation stage is aftercare. At Up & Over we provide a comprehensive after sales service and recommend setting up a service regime to keep your door in top condition. Give us a ring or ask our surveyor for more details.


We are proud of our workmanship and the products that we use. As such we provide a comprehensive 2 year guarantee on all doors and motors and the majority of doors, including the budget options, are covered by a 10 year guarantee.

To answer all these questions we can carry out a FREE SURVEY at your property to advise you.
