Answer these questions before buying a new garage door

When it's time to buy and install a new garage door or if your door needs a few repairs, it's important to hire a dependable, professional company that will complete the job without a hitch. A shoddy insulation process can lead to an unsafe environment and the possibility of further costs to resolve poor-quality fitting.

To make sure you work with the best, our team of qualified installers are located in the North of England, Midlands and some areas of the South, who will ensure your garage door is secure and ready for use in no time.

Question Time...

Before you get in touch with the installers at Select Garage Doors, here's just a few questions to help determine which door is for you:

Question 1) What type of garage door is right for me?

Garage doors are an investment, value addition to your house and a way to increase curb appeal so it's important to choose the right one. There are many types available on the market including Side Hinged, Up & Over and Personnel Doors. All our doors are made-to-measure and come in a wide variety of colours, styles and materials. Each garage door has its unique benefits and levels of maintenance required.

If you're unsure of what garage door is most suited for your property, please read our what garage door is right for you section, where you'll find a brief explanation of the benefits for each door.

Question 2) What security accessories will I need?

Can the largest moving object in your home be dangerous? Make sure it isn't. We are in the business of making sure your home is secure at all times for a worry-free, safe access point through your garage. For this reason, we provide a variety of accessories to add an extra level of security to your home including Euro Locks, Door Stays, Handles and Hinges.

We'd also recommend maximising your garage security with a reliable, high-quality CCTV camera. It can take just seconds to break into some older garage doors and with the rising number of burglars targeting homes across the UK, don't leave it to chance!

Question 3) Style vs substance?

One influential reason to get an aesthetically pleasing garage door is to improve the value of your home. It all comes down to what is more valuable to you… style, substance or both? At Select Garage Doors you will find a mixture of traditional and contemporary styles all with real durable, long-lasting properties.

There are many different reasons that people decide on a particular garage door. You need to consider the design, colour and material. Depending on the style of your home you may wish to purchase a very traditional looking wooden door. Or if your house has a more contemporary, flashy exterior, a fully glazed aluminium door would be the perfect finishing touch. For those making a decision based on current trends looking to attract potential buyers, we can help you by letting you know what the most popular options are on the market.

Question 4) How do you plan to use your garage door?

The function of your garage door will greatly influence the type of garage door you need. If the main use for your garage door is to store your car then our range of retractable garage doors are the ideal solution. These doors use sidearms and springs and provide smooth, well-balanced operation.

Perhaps you want a secure, accessible workspace out of the way of prying eyes. In this case, the side-hinged door is the best option with the choice of a centre or off-centre split for quick, convenient access; perfect for retrieving things without having to open the whole door and therefore expose its contents to the entire street, oops!
