Garage Door Installation

Here is a quick overview of the different garage door types available:

Sectional garage doors

Sectional Garage Door

Sectional garage doors are made up of 4 or 5 sections that open up vertically without “kicking out”; ideal for short driveways, high backed vehicles or times when the car is parked up against the door. These sectional garage doors are usually fully insulated, and are ideal where the garage is attached directly to the house. You will find that our sectional garage doors are also perfectly suited to electric automation. Our garage door fitters are certain to provide you with the quality installation service all sectional garage doors. 

Roller shutter doors

Roller Shutter Doors

Roller doors are one of the lowest cost ways to buy a new automated garage door, and they install very neatly as there are no tracks that go back inside the garage. The roller shutter door rolls vertically up and forms a neat, compact roll above the doorway, meaning that there is no “kick out” of the door. This enables a car to be parked directly in front of the shutter door without causing any obstruction. Roller shutter doors are commonly supplied with automation systems pre-fitted. Our fully automated roller doors are supplied with a full surrounding box and safety edge system with prices start from £1600 fitted, including VAT

Traditional “up and over” garage doors

Up and Over Garage Door

The most popular and familiar garage door is the “up and over”. Replacement manual up and over garage doors are usually the cheapest type of garage door, with prices starting from £895 fitted with a new frame and including VAT for a brand new door to be installed. Available in the widest choice of styles, sizes and colours - Up and over doors open out and then pivot back into the garage. We can provide up and over doors on canopy gear for manual operation or on fully retractable gear, which can be electrically automated.

Side hinged garage doors

Side Hinged Garage Doors

Traditional garage doors that open out as a pair of doors on hinges, they look great in various situations, such as stables, coach houses, barn entrances and older period looking properties. They are a very practical door system as they open out and have no internal mechanisms, leaving maximum interior space so you get the most from your garage. Our specialist garage door fitters are well equipped to provide a professional installation service and will ensure that your new side hinged garage door suits the style of your property.

Steel side hinged garage doors are available for just £1595 including fitting, all fixings and a new frame

We offer a range of Side Hinged doors that are made with insulated panels - perfect if your garage is attached to the house, or you use the garage as a workshop or utility room

And why stop at a door when you can automate it?

Automated garage doors provide you with peace of mind and extra security. New garage door electric operators are available from just £399 when fitted with a new door!

We can add automation to most existing garage doors; from sectional garage doors, to overhead and up and over doors. This will enable you to easily enter and exit your property without the need to get out of your car.
