Choose the right door


Despite the garage door being the single biggest component the exterior of your home, more people are concerned about other parts of the home rather than the garage door itself, especially when it comes to appearance.

This is strange because the garage door and windows on the front of the house, along with the front door, are often what is judged regarding the quality of your house. The garage door is actually almost always forgotten and until it is in a state of poor quality is often left.

At Bradford Garage Doors we believe that the garage door should be looked after and maintained and is a really big selling point for your house.

Our team of engineers list some of our best and top tips to help you pick the right garage door for your home.

  • Firstly it is important to choose the right one for your climate. Depending on the geographic location it could be metal or wood.  Whilst this is less of a problem in Bradford, you seek professional advice if you are not sure.
  • Secondly timber garage doors are very aesthetically pleasing but are an investment and therefore if you are on a tight budget and it might be worth going for a wood effect garage door instead.
  • Thirdly, you need to decide what the purpose of the garage is. For example if you're going to use it for storage a roller garage door will allow you to store closer to the garage door. This might be better for you. Also consider the street you live on. For example if all the houses on your street have a timber sectional garage door it may look very odd if you then go and have a roller red garage door for example. On some houses planning permission maybe needed for the smallest changes so you might have to check as well.
