Garage Door Bucket List


In supplying Huddersfield-based homeowners with the very best garage doors on the market today, we pay particularly close attention to the durability and strength of our Hörmann models.

All members of our team, for example, are keen to safeguard people from the threat of thieves taking advantage of their outbuilding, along with being passionate to minimise the risk of injury should any unfortunate accidents occur.

While we like to see everything safe and secure, the Huddersfield Garage Doors staff were uplifted and happy to hear of an incredible story over the past few days.

Some major news organisations last week picked up on a tale involving a 91-year-old American man, a garage door and a worn down car.

Walter Thomas of Chicago, Illinois, had harboured a life-long dream to in fact merge the three together, and crash a vehicle right through an outbuilding. Upon locating a garage on the verge of being demolished and a car on its way to the junk yard, the great-great-grandfather was finally granted his wish.

Fortunately all went to plan, as Mr Thomas seemingly finished the activity injury free and delighted with how it went. He said afterwards: “It was thrilling to get to do it after all these years, which I thought would never happen. It was like breaking a wooden box. I don't know what I could do to top it – I'm getting old to top anything. Just live life to the extreme.”

Though on this rather unusual occasion the unit was broken on purpose, garage doors can develop faults, as well as being damaged accidentally.

Should you be based in Huddersfield or its surrounding areas and require either your door repairing or a new model installing, please do feel free to get in touch with a member of our team.
