Garage Door Buying Guide


For a lot of Huddersfield homeowners, the garage door is an essential part of their home, but not one that they look to replace very often. Because of that, we find a lot of our customers look for our help in advising them on the best suited garage door for their home, due to the current amount of products available on the market today!

Here’s our guide to buying the perfect garage door to help you along the way:

  • Size: you’ll need to know what size garage door you are needing. Is it a double or single garage? Are you looking to extend your old garage? This is the one thing you need to have to hand before you start shopping
  • Style: garage doors have changed drastically over the years. If you’ve still got the original door on your 30 year old house, chances are you’ll have never used an automated garage door- which are ideal for most homes in the Huddersfield area. Are you looking for a super contemporary garage door for your modern home, or do you have a much more traditional looking house? At Huddersfield Garage Doors we stock a range of the finest Hormann doors, each coming in different styles, colours and materials
  • Operation: whilst we are on the topic of automated doors, you will need to decide whether you are wanting to invest in these easy to use doors or have a manual door. All of our automated garage doors come with a manual override. For the best advice please speak to one of our garage door experts
  • Security and Insulation: a key function of a garage door is to protect your home, the contents within it and keep it insulated and warm. You will need to decide on whether you are wanting a single-layer or double-layer garage door- each come with their own qualities. In most instances a single-layer door is well equipped for a domestic property.
