Frequently Asked Questions

Is your product range limited to Hormann garage doors?

Absolutely not. The majority of the doors we supply are made by Hormann, but we also have doors in stock from the likes of SWS, Cedar, Cardale, Garador and Select. The reason that we emphasise our commitment to Hormann products is that we feel that they strike the greatest balance between high quality and incredible value for money.

Can you supply front doors to match your garage doors?

Yes.  The Hormann range is tailored for this purpose and provides garage doors, front doors and entrance doors that complement each other perfectly.

Do you sell garage doors that provide a high level of security?

Yes we do. In our opinion, the Hormann range of high security garage doors is unmatched by any other manufacturer, providing a number of state-of-the-art built-in safety features that stop thieves in their tracks.

How much do you charge for garage doors?

Our prices start at £450 for the classic up-and-over-style garage door, which includes the cost of installation. The cost of each garage door is dependent on its type, size, style and colour, as well as its mode of operation (electric or manual) and whether you choose any accessories as part of your purchase.

Do you have any electric garage doors in stock?

Yes we do. Fortunately, the cost of doors equipped with electric motors has reduced significantly in recent years, which is why the majority of our roller and sectional doors are equipped with the technology. If you require, we can also equip your existing garage doors with electric operation.

How quickly will you respond to emergencies?

If you need your garage door fixed or replaced urgently, we try to respond within two hours, especially if the broken door is posing a threat to safety or security.  In less serious situations, we try to respond either that same day or the next, depending on how urgent you feel the situation is.

Is it possible to upgrade my manual garage door to electric?

It certainly is. Before we do this, we will need to perform a quick survey of the site to assess the condition of your garage and frame, after which we will be able to quote you a price.

Do all of your garage doors come with a guarantee?

Yes. All of the doors in our Hormann range come with a 10-year parts guarantee.

What is the lifespan of my garage door?

It is hard to say. This is because there are many different factors that will determine how long any door lasts. However, if treated in accordance with the manufacturer’s recommendations, a steel garage door should last for at 10 years. Because of technological advances, modern garage doors may even last 20 years if treated well.

Can I purchase Timber doors from you?

Yes. We have large range of wooden doors, manufactured by both Cedar and Hormann. The portfolios of both of these manufacturers feature designs that range from the Georgian-style to the more contemporary horizontal and vertical panelled designs.

Do you sell side-hinged garage doors?

Yes we do. Our side-hinged doors are perfect for properties with a more traditional aesthetic.  Our steel doors come in a diverse range of colours, including an attractive wood grain effect, although we can also supply wooden side-hinged doors.

How much do your site surveys cost?

Sites are surveyed free of charge.  Before we can quote any prices, we come to your home to discuss your requirements and take all of the necessary measurements. It is important to be thorough, so that we can you an accurate and fair breakdown of what is required and how much it will cost.

Do you sell remote control handsets?

Yes we do. Our range of handsets covers the vast majority of electric operators. In addition, we can also supply complementary accessories and spares.

Do you ever employ sub-contractors?

Never. All of our engineers work full-time for us and have received full and comprehensive in-house training. Consequently, every one of our experts is committed to maintaining high standards of workmanship and customer service.
