Pair of Garador Design 100 Up & Over Doors in Titan Metallic with Brushed Metal Handles

We have been installing garage doors for over 40 years and in that time have become experts in our field. Still run by the same family there is unlikely to be any situation that we haven’t encountered or which we will have a solution for. Coupled with a friendly approach, we make the process easy – straight-forward advice, prompt service, excellent garage door installation and competitive pricing.

Get in touch today and put us to the test.

Guarantee periods vary depending on the type of door, the door material and the supplier – however most of the garage doors that we supply are covered by a 10 year manufacturers guarantee of safe and reliable operation. This applies to all up and over doors, sectional garage doors and side-hinged garage doors. Roller garage doors have a 5 year manufacturers guarantee, although single skin steel roller garage doors have a surface finish guarantee of 10 years.

In terms of materials, steel door panels typically have a 10 year guarantee, aluminium and fibre-glass door panels have a 5 year guarantee and timber doors, when fully factory finished, have a 2 year guarantee.

All the timber materials that we use – typically for building subframes for garage doors – are tanalised and are guaranteed for 25 years.

We would advise exercising caution when you are offered a very short guarantee with the option to extend it for an additional cost – quality doors are offered with quality guarantees as standard.

It is worth taking a look at the information around servicing your door as this can have a bearing on how easy it is to make a claim: ‘Do I need to get my garage door regularly serviced?’

The period that different companies offer to guarantee their installation work varies widely but our policy is to cover the door for the life of the manufacturer’s guarantee. Simply put, if your door has a 10 year guarantee and you have an issue with it within that time you can call us and we will come out to assist without charge.

It is worth noting that when arranging a visit our team will always outline that if it turns out that the issue is not covered by the warranty – such as if it has been caused by an unrelated power failure or accidental damage – then the visit will be chargeable. We will always explain our findings to you and we won’t carry out any billable work so you can choose what you want to do.

Of course, even when the guarantee period is passed we will be ready and able to help you with your door.

A great way of heading off issues with the door is to have the door regularly serviced.

The guarantee period for virtually all motors – whether chain driven, belt driven, tube or drive-shaft – is 5 years. Some motors, such as the LiftMaster LM100, have a 7 year guarantee for extended peace of mind.

Accessories, such as remote controls, push buttons and keypads, have a 12 month guarantee.

As with garage doors, we would advise exercising caution when you are offered a very short guarantee with the option to extend it for an additional cost – quality motor systems are offered with quality guarantees as standard.

Again, as with garage doors, a great way of heading off issues with the motor is to have the door regularly serviced – for more information on this please read our article: Do I need to get my garage door regularly serviced?

The standard guarantee period for garage door repairs is 12 months – this applies to the parts themselves and the installation of them.

To give you inspiration and allow you to experience the garage doors in real life we have an extensive showroom, with possibly the widest selection of doors in any garage door showroom in the UK, at our main premises on Feeder Road, Bristol (BS2 0UY).

From up and over garage doors, roller garage doors, various sectional doors, side-hinged doors, side-sliding garage doors, front doors, bifold doors, a whole range of garage upgrades and much more beside we would love to welcome you – we can either leave you to take a look at your leisure or guide you around.

Our garage doors Bristol showroom is open all the time for visits from 9:00 – 17:00 weekdays without an appointment (although if you let us know you are coming and what you would like to see we can make sure that we are ready for you) and by appointment on Saturdays.

Whilst we are confident that we will have whatever you want to see, it never hurts to give us a call to check before making a special trip so get in touch today.

We have over 100 standard sized doors in stock at any time so we will nearly always be able to provide a rapid response whether you want the door on a supply only or supply and installation basis.

Doors such as rollers and sectional doors are typically made-to-measure so are not held in stock but roller doors can come through within 2 weeks (and sooner if we ask nicely) whilst sectional doors typically take around 6 weeks to arrive as they are not made in the UK.

Beyond the more normal doors, we also have an array of different types, sizes and styles of door in stock on a clearance basis so get in touch today and we will be really pleased to help.

At Up & Over Doors we take the wellbeing of all our customers and our employees seriously.

As such, we have worked hard to ensure that we have the most comprehensive range of health and safety accreditations possible.

As a business we hold SMAS accreditation which is a recognition of the depth and strength of our health and safety efforts.

Every member of our installation team has undergone Asbestos Awareness training, manual handling training, ladder training and abrasive wheel training (training to use angle grinders and other similar tools) as well as being issued with a full personal protective equipment kit including all the usual items as well as anti-vibration gloves and bump hats.

We retain the services of the Building Safety Group to ensure that we have expert advice available on hand, and who send us updates as and when legislation is changed.

Coupled with this, our lead installers are Site Supervision Safety Training Scheme (SSSTS) accredited and we have Site Management Safety Training Scheme (SMSTS) accreditation at management level.

In addition then whilst every job is risk assessed, we can produce site specific risk assessments and method statements to comply with your site health and safety requirements.

As such, you can be assured of our commitment to work responsibly and safely at all times.

Get in touch today to find out how we can help you.

Yes we do!

When a regular garage door doesn’t meet your security requirements, or you have a more commercial setting for the door, then we can offer a range of both manually operated and motorised steel shutter garage doors.

Most typically finished in zinc-coated, galvanised finish, they are also available factory finished in any RAL colour to suit your colour-scheme.

For motorised doors they are most popularly controlled with a key switch – where you insert a key into a switch adjacent to the door and then turning the key in either direction will open or lower the door. They can though be powered by remote control and also other app controls systems to suit your need.

Get in touch today to let us know your requirements and we would be pleased to help.

We understand that often you might want to get a couple of quotes and so we would always recommend that if you do get other quotes that you use local, well-established businesses.

It is usually straight-forward to check online reviews, and if possible compare a number of different sources. Membership of an independent quality control organisation which doesn’t also sell their members leads (such as Which? Trusted Traders rather than Checkatrade for example) is always encouraging. A health and safety accreditation such as SMAS or CHAS is something to look for as it shows that the company takes safety seriously, as well as evidence that the company takes steps to be safe with your information such as ‘Cyber Secure’.

Finally, membership of our trade body, the Door & Hardware Federation, means that the business has committed to industry standards and will have received information and mandatory training  on the best practice to give you the best, safest and most reliable installation.

We take our commitment to you seriously so we comply with all of the above, offering quality garage doors.

5 star service from start to finish! I would highly recommend Up and Over doors happily to anyone and will be doing so. From the free quote to installation of my garage door the service was unbeatable, thank you!
William Soens
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.
Anthony Evans
Very pleased with Up & Over Doors professional service from survey to installation. Great job!
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.
Ian Bruce
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.
