STEEL GARAGE DOORS, SUPPLIED & FITTED
FROM £498learn more
My Garage doors are 100% steel and come with a steel frame (not wood) for great security and performance. Your old door (if you have one) will be removed (along with its frame) and taken away to be recycled.
All of my doors come in a pre-hung factory finished steel fixing frame, which makes installation simple (within 2 to 3 hours) and eliminates the need for a timber frame.
All of my doors are corrosion resistant, manufactured from premium grade galvanized steel and finished in either white or black powder coating and come with a black euro D handle.
My doors are available in either retractable or canopy spring assisted gear systems for smooth, safe and reliable operation. Plus with high-security shoot bolts on the retractable doors and retention points on the canopy doors.
ABOUT THE UP & OVER GARAGE DOORS
Up & Over doors are the most popular doors and for good reason. Easy to use and great value for money, they need very little maintenance and provide both clean looks and excellent practicality.
Please Note that most garage doors are sold in sizes of the opener and not the size of the door and frame together. Some garage door brands sell the frame separately and the size of the frame would need to be added before buying the right size garage door. This is why it’s worth getting it done by someone who knows what they are doing.
Up & Over Doors come in 2 gearing models, Retractable & Canopy design.
ABOUT THE UP & OVER GARAGE DOORS THAT I SUPPLY
I source my garage doors from Novoferm & Cardale at great prices and pass that on to my customers, along with friendly service and a years workmanship warranty.
WHAT ARE RETRACTABLE AND CANOPY MODELS?
Retractable gearing means the door panel opens on horizontal tracks which go back into the garage, and this type of gear has been designed specifically for use with an electric operator, which can be added in the
Canopy gearing means the door panel runs vertically on tracks on the side frame and a spring assembly on the top of the frame.
WHAT STYLE OF DOOR IS THE BETTER ONE?
- I feel the retractable model has better security than the canopy model, it’s attached in all 4 corners by 2 metal arms and 2 roller wheels with no wires in sight (unlike the canopy model).
- The retractable model has no need for safety locking hooks. These hooks will lock into a row of holes running down the frame of a canopy door to stop the door from closing/crashing down if the wires holding it up were to breaks this is because there are no wires on a retractable model.
- The retractable model has 3 small spring on either side, so if 1 spring does break in the future, then you can remove 1 from the other side and even up the tension or buy a replacement (around £25).
- The vertical line design helps stop
mouldand dirt settling on the whole of the door, this can’t be guaranteed but it will look cleaner than the horizontal design.
- It’s cheaper and I feel it’s an all-round better model than the canopy.
SO WHT DO I SELL CANOPY DOORS?
Canopy models are not asked for much because of the reasons above but if there is no room for the retractable frame (there are many reasons why there isn’t), then a canopy door will be the cheaper option compared to a roller door plus canopy doors do come in a smaller size than the retractable.
WHY OFF THE SHELF SIZES?
Most garage door openings come close to 1 of 4 width sizes and 1 of 2 heights. Selling only standard door sizes helps to keep your cost down, rather than spending more on a “made to measure” door for the sake of a few inches.
Garage door frames can sit between the brickwork (within the opening) or behind the brickwork (set back from the opening). This gives you another 2 options for fitting the door.
Depending on the gap around the frame (within the opening), Packers will be used to give a secure fit and then trimmed over.

HELLO & WELCOME
My name is John and I’m a sole trader, trading under my business name ‘OpenOpen’.
I’ve been fitting windows, doors and conservatories for over 10 years and have worked for some of the big companies here in the south.
I set up my own installation company to give my customers great service from start to finish, something I feel these bigger companies struggle to give.
Since then, the feedback that I have received from my customers has made the move from working for a big company to working for myself, all the worthwhile.
When I started working for myself, I was mainly fitting new doors and windows but over time, I have steered more towards installing garage doors.
With so many other businesses and tradesmen/women installing doors and windows, this area of work is a highly competitive market.
So I decided to stick to one thing and excel in it.
Apart from a deposit, I will not ask you to pay the remaining balance until the job is 100% complete. I believe that trust works both ways!
Once your installation is completed, payment can be made in cash or through a bank transfer up to seven days after.
A minimum of 50% deposit is required for all projects and you will receive a receipt of your deposit.
Here you can find kind feedback left from my customers on MyBuilder.com and Checkatrade.com
