Pick the right door


At Bradford Garage doors we can offer a wide range of different garage doors for your home. From the traditional timber up and over styles, through to sectional, roller and the growing in popularity side-hinged varieties, we have all your needs covered.

However, with all this choice, picking the right door for your home can be a problem. Often people just choose a replacement for the door they have and thus the up and over remains a popular choice due to its longevity in the market place.

It however may not be the right option for you and a roller or sectional door could perhaps work better and offer a lot more to your home. Also is your current door insulated as insulated garage doors are now one of the biggest sellers in the UK market place, especially in place like Bradford, Wetherby and surrounding areas.

Below, our team have listed a few things which should help you pick the right garage door and make sure that an up and over, for example, is the best for your personal circumstances.

  • Choose the right material first. If you are hung up on having a timber door then just be aware that this requires a lot of maintenance. If you cannot commit to maintaining and treating it each year, you could choose an aluminium door with a timber effect. From the outside it looks just like wood but you do not need to carry out all the yearly care for it.
  • Choosing the right style for your home is equally important. If you live in a really modern areas of Bradford you do not want to choose a traditional looking garage door. Conversely, of you are in a traditional estate where everyone has Georgian looking doors, don’t go for something lavish and outlandish as it will not look good.
  • Thirdly choose the model. If you use it regularly, and have a car that easily first in the garage then an up and over may be the best choice. If however you wish to maximise external and internal space within the drive and the garage, pick a roller or sectional door. At this point you should consider the use of the garage and speak to a garage door company if you are unsure if the door you want will allow you to do what you want inside. Bradford Garage Doors are always willing to help you out.
