Automation can provide a range of benefits for different people.

Either way, it will cost less you than think, and in some cases can be VAT exempt. Give us a ring to find out more.
There are a number of options for insulating your garage. Some garage doors, such as sectionals and rollers can come pre-insulated to varying degrees whilst there are also retro-fit kits than can be applied to any door to improve their thermal efficiency. Give us a ring to find out more.

Insulated garage doors are considered eco-friendly as they reduce the carbon footprint of your home by reducing energy wastage through the garage opening. Additionally, all the timber doors are made from managed forests where three trees are planted to replace every tree taken.

The best budget option is often the up and over canopy door. It hasn’t changed in design for many years and offers tried and tested reliability at an affordable price. Additionally we regularly have clearance sales that give you the opportunity to buy a more expensive door at a bargain price.
In coastal locations painted steel doors can rapidly deteriorate. As such we recommend GRP, UPVC or plastisol coated steel doors to resist the salt air.

The installation time depends on the complexity of the job and the size of the door. It is unusual for any installation to take longer than a day as we will never leave your garage unsecured. If there are multiple garage doors to fit it may take longer but we will discuss this with you at time of order.
We hold many doors in stock and can have them installed within 5 working days. Our average turn around time from order to installation is 2-3 weeks. Sometimes however, and particularly for the larger and more bespoke doors that we need to import, they can take up to 8-10 weeks.
We take pride in our workmanship and have confidence in the products we sell. As such we offer a no-quibble guarantee for a minimum of 2 years on all doors and motors that we install. The vast majority of our doors, including the budget doors, are covered by a 10 year guarantee. Drop in to our showroom to see the doors in action or give us a ring to find out more. The guarantees we offer are manufacturer backed but please note that they are not insurance backed.
