Unusual garage doors


After hearing that a couple awoke with a large swastika painted on their garage door, the team at Bradford Garage Doors has researched some other unusual garage door paintings and artwork on the doors.

Famously is the Ferrari painted on the door which was used by a homeowner in England to trick his neighbours into thinking that he owned one of the most expensive and sought after cars in the world.

Other intelligent paintings on garage doors include that of a plane and an elephant, both which obviously could not fit into the garage, but are used to trick the eye into thinking they are huge spaces. 

Back to the swastika story and the owner was left upset with the sign on her home. One of the neighbours said:  “To think that this anti-Semitism exists in our community, in our backyard, in our neighbour’s backyard, it’s inexcusable,” said one neighbour.

Whilst painting on the garage door is not uncommon, most people stick to traditional RAL colours. At Bradford Garage Doors, we can offer a range of different RAL colours to choose from as standard and also a wide selection of other RAL colours for those with an unusual colour taste. This allows us to match your new garage door perfectly to existing windows and doors, or perhaps other features within the stonework of your home.

We also have a number of different garage doors to choose from including up and over, sectional, side hinged and roller, and you can have them with electronic or manual operation.

If you would like to know more about our range of garage doors or the colours available, please do not hesitate to contact us on 01274 352 303.
