Timber garage doors are a high-quality choice and one that presents an air of status, combined with reliability.
A timber garage door is typically hand crafted and made to measure. Made from solid tongue and groove boards or combined with wooden panels, there is an extensive range of designs to choose from.
Even the orientation of the timber can be selected with the option to choose from a vertical, horizontal or chevron layout. A garage door in timber can be supplied with just a base coat or hand finished in wood tones such as oak, teak, mahogany, rosewood, walnut, ebony and chestnut.
Aside from the aesthetic appeal, the timber garage door mechanism can be up and over or use the more traditional side hinge. Timber side hinged garage doors open outwards and this is an essential benefit for garages that have obstacles in fixed positions, such as power supply meters or shelves.
A side hinged timber garage door is also a good choice for garage owners who need regular access. The garage door can have a half and half or one third and two thirds opening, giving convenient access to those on foot or bike.
Garage doors in timber are suitable for even the most environmentally conscious garage owner as the wood used is selected from sustainable sources. A timber garage door is also suitable for those who use their garage space as a workshop, as the garage door can be fitted with clear or frosted glazing, made from tough acrylic.
