Garage Door Materials

What Garage Door Materials are best suited to you?  Here we discuss which the benefits of choosing the right garage door materials for your installation.

Insulated garage doors prices

There are now so many different types of garage door for you to choose from: roller, retractable, side-hinged, sectional, and up-and-over garage doors.  Not only that, but many different suppliers have their own takes on these designs, with individual security, safety and insulation features.  If you’re looking for automated garage doors, you can choose from a range of operational devices and remotes.  The last, but not least, deciding factor will be the materials, colours and finish you choose for your garage door.  Obviously, not all manufacturers will provide all designs in all materials, so when it comes to choosing what your door is made from, Camber can advise you on the best choice and show you what it would look like.  When choosing between timber, ABS/UPVC, steel, GRP or another material, here are some factors to consider.

Plastic and ABS/UPVC garage doors

UPVC/ABS garage doors are chosen by people who are looking for a garage door to match their PVC window frames and doors, or who are looking for a low maintenance product.  ABS and PVC are both durable garage door materials, which are maintenance free, rot, rust and fade-resistant.  They can withstand heavy bangs and knocks, and provide good security.  These materials can be sculpted into elegant, joint-free shapes, and customised to suit your location.  ABS or PVC garage doors can be automated or manually operated, and they can even be installed with a timber-effect or other finish, to match the other parts of your home.

Timber garage doors

Oak garage doors, hardwood garage doors and cedar garage doors have the most classic look of any material, and they can be treated to make them resistant to rot and reinforced to ensure their durability.  Timber side hung garage doors are the classic design for garages that require easy pedestrian access.

Steel garage doors

Canopy Doors Installations GallerySteel is classically used in sectional and up-and-over garage doors.  Steel garage doors are chosen because they use an excellent value, low maintenance material that can be customised with many different panel styles, window designs, paint colors, and much more.  These are excellent doors for security, can be insulated with another material such as polyurethane or polystyrene, and can be supplied with a timber-effect laminate finish.

Aluminium is used in roller garage doors to provide an extra layer of insulation.  All different styles of garage doors can be supplied with extra insulation: however, up and over and sectional garage doors can be more fully insulated than the roller and round-the-corner garage doors.

There are many other further possibilities: garage doors with windows (clear or crystal); insulated garage doors with windows, SeceuroGlide roller garage doors, and much besides.  To find out which styles and garage door materials are right for you and your budget, and to ask about custom-made garage doors, insulated garage doors, or anything else, we’ll be pleased to hear from you.

In Camber Garage Doors, I was fortunate to discover a very professional & reliable company. From the site survey to the installation and to the follow-up courtesy call, all company representatives were both courteous & knowledgeable. There was no pressure selling & I now have a lovely new garage door that perfectly suits my needs. I have, therefore, no hesitation whatsoever in recommending their services.

When looking for a replacement garage door, I wanted to find a company that really understood my needs. I was fortunate enough to meet Grant (the owner) who was able to address the following: Security, enhancing the look of my house and price. I am very pleased to say Grant met this criteria.Grant went above and beyond to what I class as excellent customer service. Every question asked several times over. Impressed and would happily recommend to others.

I called up Camber to get a quote for a garage door replacement. Went to their shop and was impressed with their service and ability to answer all my questions. Pricing was great! Order my lovely door, delivery and installation was on time and they did an excellent job. Grant and Clare (husband and wife team) who own the business are lovely and very attentive to customer requests and needs. Would recommend them to anyone. Always happy to support local small business owners :)

We called 5 companies all together to get quotes for a new roller door, Camber from the 1st moment stood out with excellent customer service and knowledge.They invited me to come to their lovely showroom in Bordon as they have working electric Roller Doors on display which was well worth doing to see all colour samples.It was good to know that the company I am giving my money to have a showroom that I can go back to and see them If I have any questions or issues.There was no pushy attitude from them, they made me feel very comfortable and relaxed Clare was the lady’s name in the showroom . When Martin came out to survey againIt was a very pleasant experience and you could tell he knew exactly what he was talking about. We then ordered a door with them and 3 weeks later on the date and time agreed our newDoor was installed. The fitters again were very polite guys who got on with the job and 3 hours later we had a new roller door fitted, all the rubbish was taken away with everything neatAnd tidy. A great company to deal with, I just wish all trades people were this good. Highly recommended.
