Frequently Asked Questions

How quickly can we provide you with a quote?

Whilst we can give you an estimate over the phone, we generally prefer to come out to your home to both discuss your needs and undertake a quick site survey – we do not charge for this service. It is important that we provide a quote that is accurate, both in terms of the style of garage door you are looking for and the price you wish to pay. Our technical sales people can normally be with you in 2-3 working days from receipt of your call and are flexible and accommodating with appointment times.

Will I have to pay for a garage door survey?

Absolutely not. Our technical sales people will undertake this service free of charge whilst discussing your requirements. The purpose of the survey is to ensure that we can provide you with an accurate quote, and in the event of you placing an order, to ensure we complete the installation to the highest possible standards.

How long does it take to install a garage door?

Whilst it can vary according to size and type, typically a single garage door will take around half a day to install, whilst a double garage door takes a little longer. Likewise, a garage door with electric operation tends to add an hour or so onto the installation time.
