Considerations when buying


Choosing a garage door can be particularly difficult, with many different types to choose from.

When picking any garage door, there are many considerations to take into account, so our team at Huddersfield Garage Doors have listed some of the top things to look out for.


Inevitably this is one of the most thought about things. If you have a budget, it is key to look at garage doors that fall within that budget and not outside. The price of garage doors vary significantly depending on material, style and colour, however, steel doors are often the cheaper and timber doors the most expensive. You will also have to factor in to any price, whether you want them to be electronically operated or not.


Material is another big consideration and should not be an afterthought. Usually, the options are steel, timber, aluminium, PVC or GRP, but within that there can also be more varieties. The price often again matches the material, and you should always check to see if there is an option which works for you and is in-keeping with the local area.


Do not forget about this. The mechanism is how the door works and may not work if you get it wrong. Make sure you speak to a professional company if you are unsure as to how it may work as you don’t want to spend out for a great door and find that it prevents you from parking your car insdie the garage or using it as you may want to.


We know we go on about it, but the garage door is one of the single biggest components of the outside of the home. Thus it is very important that you make sure it is secure. Think about ways to secure your garage doors and ask about types of multi-locking options.
