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 or shutters. 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 garage 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 your 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?


What does the average garage door cost? 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 to the cost implications. We also have ‘from prices’ indicated on each of the garage door category pages such as sectionalup and over and roller garage doors.

Where is the garage 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.

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.

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.

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.

We are proud of our workmanship and the products that we use. As such all the doors we install our covered by a 2 year comprehensive warranty, 5 years on roller doors and a 10 year guarantee on all other door types. Motor guarantee periods are at least 5 years on the motor and 12 months on accessories such as remote controls.

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.

Everyone was on time, professional and done a great job. I got 3 quotes and they were the cheapest by some way for the exact same product. Would recommend.

Stephen Buckingham
From the initial quotation to the actual installation, Up&Over Doors have been a very professional company to deal with. Their communication is excellent, even phoning me the day before to check that everything was okay for the installation to go ahead. The installers were friendly and chatty and left my home in a clean and tidy condition. If you’re after a new garage door, I would definitely recommend this company.
Graham Smith
Every one I had contact with was helpful and friendly. the men who installed the door did a fantastic job very very pleased. These guys were not electricians so a power socket was supplied.
Best customer service i ever come across.
Greg Markham
Really professional, came to site provided a couple of options and walked me through each. Once agreed, the order process was simple, the team arrived as agreed and delivered to their agreed promises. Highly delighted with the install and the end result, got exactly what we needed, all for a good value cost. Would absolutely recommend for any garage door work.

This family run company excels at the simple things that means they provide great customer service. They listen to their customers and communicate well. They look to see what they can do, rather than what they cannot do. So much more positive than another garage door company I dealt with some years ago. The engineers that came from Up & Over Doors Ltd were brilliant and dedicated. They stayed well beyond their usual finishing time to complete the job and this for me proved their dedication to great customer service. A special mention for Ashley, Jakub and Scott.
