Timber Garage Doors

Timber Garage Doors from The Garage Door CentreThe Garage Door Centre can supply any of the timber garage door types shown below and we have been supplying high quality timber doors since 1986.

Pair of matching timber up and over garage doorsWe are one of the largest suppliers of timber garage doors in the U.K. and can provide all the major manufacturers as well as bespoke styles and types, with advice and assistance in specification as well as carry out site surveys for advice if required.

Most timber garage doors are produced in cedarwood but we can also supply doors in Oak, Larch, Iroko, Hemlock, Nordic Pine, Meranti, Okoume, Idigbo and Douglas Fir.

The beauty of wood is in its diversity, and we can create bespoke designs where the standard designs do not fulfill the requirements. There are also more than enough high quality, high specification microporous wood treatments for the long term preservation of timber doors for our ever-changing UK weather.

The fear of having to constantly re-treat timber garage doors is completely untrue when the door is treated correctly from the day of installation with a proper timber treatment; some manufacturers even offer very long guarantees (up to 10 years!) to back their products.

Talk to us about any timber garage door or pedestrian side entrance door, we can offer standard sizes at the very best prices or bespoke sizes and designs to suit the most demanding of requirements. 

Refer to the categories below to browse the various types of garage doors that are available in timber; please feel free to contact us if you have any queries.
