Warning to homeowners

08/12/2016

The team at York Garage Doors would like to make everyone aware of rogue Garage Door traders. The announcement comes after BBC TV consumer programme Watchdog exposed the rouge traders installing unsafe domestic garage doors.

The programmes, which aired last week highlighted the issues with unsafe installation of garage doors. This included how they could cause serious damage to consumers should they be used frequently.  

The programmes showed how this company had not installed the doors correctly and that the structural integrity of the door was compromised.

The programme’s presenter said: "A garage door is the largest and heaviest moving part in the home. If it's unsafe it's quite capable of causing serious injury if someone is struck or trapped by an unsafe garage door.”

"As Watchdog demonstrated, there are unfortunately still companies out there which cut corners, mislead customers and fit doors that are potentially dangerous. Watchdog is seen by millions of viewers so this programme will significantly raise awareness amongst householders of the need for compliant and safe garage doors. The DHF will continue to advise householders to have their garage doors installed and maintained by reputable companies that employ qualified and trained installers."

York Garage Doors would like to reassure homeowners that not all garage door companies are like that. At York Garage Doors we have multiple years’ experience in providing high quality garage doors for homes and installing them to the highest of standards.
