Choosing the perfect garage door


Huddersfield Garage Doors has a huge selection of all types of garage doors for you to choose from, so here is a quick 10-point guide to help you narrow down your choice.

  1. Cost. If your budget for garage doors is limited, call the experts at Huddersfield Garage Doors about a garage door to suit your budget.
  2. Style. Choose a style of garage door to complement the style of your home. A set of timber coach style doors will give your home a traditional feel, while smart aluminium will suit a modern building.
  3. Material. Garage doors come in timber, steel, aluminium, and PVC, and the material will affect the appearance of the garage doors, as well as their cost, security, and durability.
  4. Maintenance. Timber garage doors look great, but require more maintenance than metal doors. If you like the look of timber, consider a timber-effect finish in other materials, to reduce maintenance.
  5. Windows. If you intend to use your garage as living space, you should consider installing windows. Well planned windows will enhance the appearance of your garage and let in daylight for your home office, gym, or workshop.
  6. Insulation. This is important if you will spend time in your garage. Insulation saves on heating costs for your gym, or other living area, but may not be necessary if you use your garage for storage, or your car.
  7. Safety. An important consideration, for heavy garage doors. Check your automated garage door will have a safety reverse or stop function, and do not compromise on safety features.
  8. Garage door mechanism. The performance of your garage door depends on the quality of the door opening mechanism. Huddersfield Garage Doors can help you choose a good quality robust door opening mechanism.
  9. Warranty. You will want the peace of mind that comes with a good manufacturer's warranty for your new garage door. Ask Huddersfield Garage Doors about the excellent range of guaranteed quality garage doors.
  10. After sales service. Huddersfield Garage Doors offers a comprehensive warranty on garage door installations, and outstanding after sales service.
