Bespoke Garage Door Specialists

With garage door systems constantly improving, Managing Director Nathan Dove believes people need to do more than just replace old doors with exactly the same style.

He states:

"As garage doors have become more specialised, people need a specialist company like us that really understands the technical elements of garage doors, that can appreciate customers requirements and advise them accordingly. It is also vital that the chosen doors are fitted in a professional manner. With such an important purchase that will last for perhaps 20 years and more, many customers wish to see more than just a brochure. As well as inviting customers to visit the showrooms, we will conduct a survey of their garage to ensure that the door selected will fit the opening and be appropriate for their needs.

It is surprising how often we have had to change doors for people who have bought from a non-specialised company, only to find that the opening is no longer wide enough or high enough to accommodate their car. And of course, safety is a major factor, especially where electrical operators are concerned. Whether the main criterion be maximising drive through dimensions, complying with planning issues or enlarging internal space, The Garage Door Centre will be able to provide guidance and recommend suitable options."
