The door is installed so that it is level with the surrounding façade instead of being set back. If you make the garage door the same colour or material as its surround, it will disappear into the front of your home – until opened!
‘Smart’ garage doors
A smart garage door is one of the most exciting new technologies to come out in the last few years and is becoming a common feature. It allows you to remotely control your garage door from anywhere, using your phone, tablet or PC. So, if you forget to close it when you leave the house – no problem!

With an insulated garage door, the temperature inside your garage will tend to fluctuate less throughout the day, making the space inside much more comfortable. Street noise will also be significantly reduced, which means you could use the garage as another room such as a home office, gym or playroom for the kids.
