What to consider


Believe it or not, choosing a new garage door isn’t a small decision – not only can it shape the appearance of your Bradford property’s exterior, but it’ll also safeguard the contents of your outbuilding.

Because of their importance, it really is vital to consider several things before buying a new model rather than rushing into a decision.

To give you a bit more of an idea as to what these things are, the Bradford Garage Doors team have below summarised a few questions to ask yourself:

Does it look good?

As simple as it sounds, a new garage door ideally has to look good. While this is very much down to personal preference, we advise our customers to remember the bigger picture – whether it fits in with the rest of your property is an important factor, for example.

How long will it last?

Though it’s impossible to know for sure, there are some telltale signs to look out for when assessing the quality of a replacement garage door. The main one is its brand. Such manufacturers as Hörmann, who we’re lucky to have a longstanding relationship with, are known to provide the best quality models on the market time and time again.

What protection does it offer?

As much as we wish it wasn’t the case, garages are susceptible to break-ins – even in Bradford, where crime rates aren’t particularly high. To ensure that your outbuildings’ contents are given the protection that they need, we advise you to research security measures before purchasing a new door. Features such as multi-point locking are fully recommended.
