There are times when an off the shelf solution just won’t match the requirements of the project – a strangely-shaped opening or a difficult internal layout, a specific front door to match or just something completely out of the ordinary. In these cases, a bespoke garage doors service is required.
Typically the process starts with a meeting to discuss your individual projects and go through any drawings or inspiration you might have. Additionally, we would normally address the technicalities, such as ensuring there is sufficient space for the door mechanism and associated automation. If the build stage has already begun then we would combine this with a site survey and if desired create technical drawings of your door for approval. This service is provided completely free of charge. To summarise:
• We will provide you with all the design and technical information you may need either before or during a site survey where we will take full measurements – we carry a full range of surface finishes and styles to view, as well as having a showroom with every available garage door type on show.
• Once this is completed, you will be given a full design and specification with a detailed quotation and installation schedule. Our work on site is professional and we work to strict standards of quality, safety and cleanliness.
• To keep disruption to a minimum, we usually complete installation in one day, perhaps with a follow up visit the following day for any snagging.
• All our doors are covered by the longest guarantees in the industry.
Below are a couple of real scenarios of bespoke garage doors we have encountered and the innovative solutions that we have found:
With very limited internal space but with a need for more than just the simple look of a roller door, our client found the Delta Overlap trackless sectional to be perfect, with over 30 standard surface finishes in a wide range of styles and with the option to completely customise your door. The door can also be totally glazed.
Our client required a timber door to satisfy planners, and for aesthetic considerations, but wanted the strength, security and insulation of a steel sectional door. The Ryterna insulated sectional door with a 12mm hardwood veneer worked perfectly, including custom pattern routing and a bespoke fixed arched header piece to match.
We were approached by a high end building company who were building a coach house style garage where the architects had specified side-hinged doors. However, the client didn’t want the opening narrowed down by the doors or to accommodate for the outswing of these doors. As such, our friends at Cedar Door created some bespoke garage doors, solid cedar sectional doors with custom carving to achieve the look that the architect had put on his plans. Needless to say, our client was very happy with the finished product.
While we supply custom made doors in many materials we find that the wooden doors on a steel frame are the most popular choice wth our customers.
