A lot of people that are looking to maximise the value of their home will choose to install a brand new garage door because it is a home-improvement investment that is both affordable and will give their house an instant facelift.

Installing a new garage door will increase your home’s curb appeal and will help to distinguish your house from your neighbours, especially if you live on a housing estate in Leicester with a lot of similar-looking homes built by one housing developer.

For something extra special you can choose a completely different style of garage door that not only looks very smart but can also have a different opening and closing action. Going for a side-hinge garage door for example will be far easier to open than a traditional up and over canopy garage door.

Or if you have a side-hinge garage door, but you need the space in front of your garage door to park a second car, then choosing an up and over canopy door or a roller door design may offer better space-saving for you.

When space is an issue

If you have very limited space on your driveway, then a garage door that opens and shuts vertically will allow you to park another car very close to the garage door without preventing it from being opened.

The most popular styles of garage door for when space is an issue are upward-moving and self-storing doors, such as canopy, retractable canopy and sectional garage doors that also take up very little space inside your garage. These can be operated manually or by using an electronic garage door opener.

Roller garage doors are a very popular choice with people that have garages that open out directly onto the road, and also for those who use their garage for storage where they may want to make good use of the garage roof space.

Our friendly Leicester-based team can install a brand new space-saving garage door for you that can be operated manually or by a secure hand-held electronic opener and closer, which you can operate from anywhere in your home. Automatic openers are very handy on rainy days where you don’t need to leave your car to open your garage.
