Getting The Right Garage Door Is No Walk in The Park

By 1st February 2017August 26th, 2022Blog

As it turns out, getting the right garage door for your property is not as straight forward as you think. There are a lot of details to take into consideration but with LT Garage Doors take care of every element from the word go.

There is so much more to buying garage doors than just finding the most suitable for your budget. With various designs, locking mechanisms, extra features and even quirky colours to choose from, it can quickly become a minefield of never-ending doors.

Don’t Make Your Garage Door an Afterthought

Many years ago when homes were first constructed, garage doors were seen as an afterthought, with most of the budget going on modern kitchen appliances and luxury bed frames. The first garage door was introduced around the 1920’s and the mass production of poor quality doors began even though the door itself can take up a large proportion of your property image.

As times have changed, and drastically at that, more and more homeowners are using their garages as extra living spaces, storage and even home gyms but are certainly feeling the chill with their box standard garage door they chose years ago.

You now have the chance to really make a difference with your LT garage door opportunities.

There are so many materials to choose from including thermal insulating doors and solid timber solutions that add value to your property and also versatility to the garage space itself.

No one can predict the future but you can prepare for it with an efficient garage door.

Bespoke Garage Doors

LT Garage Doors provide our customers with a bespoke garage door builder right here on our site, so that you can essentially create your ideal garage door. “Taking your plans to a garage specialist early on could make the difference between making a small change to your house design and choosing the door you want, or being limited to buying a door which fits,” says David Newcombe of Hörmann.

Choosing the width, height, opening style, number of entry points, how it should be fitted, the spacing needed and even the colour gives you the chance to create the garage door of your dreams – if that’s what you dream of!

Rather than choosing your favourite colour or the cheapest materials, you need to make a sound decision on how the addition will affect your property value. To do this, our team have years of experience working with period homes, traditional structures and modern new builds to really help our customers make the right choice with their garage doors, even down to the perfect shade of white.

Some of the colours we have on offer include:

  • Traditional white
  • Silver
  • Red
  • Painted Rosewood
  • Golden Oak
  • Beige
  • Walnut
  • Blue
  • Moss Green
  • Irish Oak
  • Many more

Once you have gone through the process of creating the perfect garage door, we also suggest vital additional features that your property can benefit from. These include alarm systems, transmitters, remote control access, door sensors and radio keypads to fast forward your garage door into the future.

Security Matters

Whether you are simply using your garage space of its initial purpose of storing your vehicles or you are looking at creating extra living space, you need to ensure security is at a maximum.

Police UK have published some top tips when it comes to avoiding becoming a burglary statistic and a key note throughout them all is the security measures taken at your home. When it comes to garages, they need to be locked at all times which is only possible with an effective locking system.
