Treat Yourself to a New Garage Door this Festive Season

Posted on by admin

If you have spend the last few months looking on in disgust at the state of your garage door as you drive up your driveway in the car or look out from a window of your home, why not treat yourself to a new one this festive season? It is after all the season to be jolly, and if your current garage door is doing nothing to fill you with joy, now is most certainly the time to make a change.

It isn’t just poor appearance that a dilapidated garage door can subject you to though, as there are other reasons as to why you should invest in a new model;


The main function of a garage door is to enable easy access to your garage, and if this is no longer the case, you are clearly not getting the most effective use out of the available space. It doesn’t matter whether you store your car in it or use it as a dumping ground for all the belongings you can’t fit in the house but don’t want to throw away, your garage needs to be a functional space and if your garage door doesn’t allow for this then you need a new model!


As the main point of access to your garage, a garage door also has a vitally important role to play when it comes to security. A damaged or broken garage door can be a tempting proposition to a would-be criminal, meaning you could wake up one morning to find your car or belongings gone after a criminal has taken advantage of the weakness in the door. If when looking at your current garage door you could see how this could happen to you, get in touch with us at A1 Garage Doors immediately.

So, with it being the gift buying season, why not treat yourself to a brand new garage door and reap the benefits that doing so will bring? For more information on the various garage doors we have available, don’t hesitate to get in touch today.

How Your Garage Can Make Your Property More Appealing

Posted on by admin

If you are looking to sell your home, you will undoubtedly want to do all you can to make it as appealing as possible to potential buyers. Whilst you will of course spruce up the interior and tidy up the front and back gardens, it is important not to forget your garage as this building is an extension of your home and will certainly have an effect on the initial impression a would-be buyer will make of your property.

Solid Structure

The first thing you need to do is ensure the structure of your garage is sound, as the last thing anyone looking around your property will want to see is a dilapidated, half falling down garage as they will immediately begin to think how much it will cost to remedy. Therefore before anyone comes to see your property, be sure to check the garage and resolve any structural problems well in advance so the building is the solid structure a buyer will be looking for.

Attractive Appearance

After ensuring the solid structure of the building, the next thing to do is make sure the garage looks appealing to the passer-by. This could mean that you need to add a fresh lick of paint here and there or replace an old, well used and dated looking garage door with a modern alternative that portrays the garage in the very best light. Whilst it may mean a little bit of effort on your part as well as some cash outlay, the benefits in terms of appearance will be well worth it.


As you tidy up the bedrooms, kitchen and living areas inside your home, don’t forget about the inside of your garage. Whether you do use the space to store your car or utilise it as somewhere to store belongings that can’t be housed inside your home, make sure you give the area a good clean and tidy before anyone comes around as you will need to showcase how functional the space can be. The more functional it is, the more appealing your whole property will be.

So there you have it, if you are trying to sell your property, don’t forget the important role that your garage can play in making it an appealing prospect; and remember, if you are looking to make it more attractive, come to us here at A1 Garage Doors for the very best in stylish, modern and functional garage door designs.

Find an Alternative to Up and Over Garage Doors

Posted on by admin

‘Up and Over’ garage doors are a choice that is mostly resigned to the past as they tend to be cumbersome, unpractical and hard to use. Now there are many modern alternatives that are more reliable, durable, allow for easier day-to-day use and are all supplied and installed by us here at A1 Garage Doors – just take our roller garage doors Watford as an example.

Up and over garage doors will firstly require a lot of space to be installed for their overhead sliding motion, and will then create further problems each time you leave or enter the garage in your car. If you currently own this style of garage door and are looking for a replacement, you will surely be accustomed to these problems, which include having to haul open the door yourself each morning, driving out of the garage and then pushing it shut again, to having to park a sizeable distance away from your garage on your driveway to allow for its opening mechanism.

This lack of practicality also brings with it a lack of security, so finding an alternative is essential to your happiness as a driver and the safety of your home. Our range of modern garage doors provide this alternative as our roller garage doors provide the height of home or workplace security, enhanced aesthetics and much, much easier usage. This is down to these shutters taking up little overhead space and rolling vertically upwards, meaning that you can even park a second car directly outside your garage and still open the door.

With a range of automatic operation choices, our roller garage doors Watford become an even more appealing alternative, which is furthered by their notoriously high security that will deter even the most persistent intruders. Experienced in all garage doors and supplying others such as sectional and timber garage doors, we can advise on which style of door would best suit your requirements, so simply call us today on 01923 428484 and find out more.
