The problem with choosing a roller garage door is that, to all intents and purposes, they all look much the same. However, at the Garage Door and Automation Company, we know a few little secrets that we’d like to share with you. These secrets can help you choose the garage roller door that’s best for you and your home.
The first thing you need to know is that the parts that set doors apart from one another tend to be the parts that are hidden from view. However, our team are happy to discuss every aspect of each of our products, so don’t be afraid to ask!
The Secrets to Choosing a Good Roller Door
To choose a good roller door, you should look for:
• Manufacturers that have been making doors for at least 5 years. While you should expect a good motor drive unit to last longer than that, this is the minimum period you should expect a guarantee for.
• Doors that are either made in the UK or Germany. Both have a grand tradition of making steel doors and are market-leaders in design and durability.
• The latest electronic control systems.
• The latest safety features. Roller doors that do not feature the latest safety features carry an increased risk of injury. If your door is older than 10 years old, it is well worth researching a replacement, for that reason alone.
Security and Reliability
While budget options might seem tempting, the truth that is that they compromise on reliability and safety. At the Garage Door and Automation Company, we aim to provide garage roller doors that continue to perform, have a long life-span and will add to the value of your home. It’s the quality of the components that make one door better or worse than another.
In addition to the behind-the-scenes secrets held by roller doors, there are other things you will want to take into account, such as insulation, sound-proofing and security. If you want to find out which is the best product for your home, get in touch and we’ll be more than happy to help.
