With the new decade upon us, maybe now is a good time to make some changes in your home. Whether you want to look after your home and improve the property or you’ve decided to put the house on the market, a new garage door may be just what’s needed. Here are five good reasons why this is one home investment you should seriously consider in 2020.
Garages are often used to store expensive objects – not just cars but power tools, gardening equipment, bikes, toys and more – which can be very attractive to a burglar. If you have an integrated garage with a connecting door to the house, the risk to the property and belongings is even greater.
While your number one priority is to keep your family and belongings safe, a less than perfect garage door may well represent the weakest link in your home security. Older garage doors can be much easier to break into than state-of-the-art contemporary ones, so it’s a good idea to review your current door.
Modern garage doors offer highly sophisticated security features to keep you and your valuables safe from criminals. Consider an automatic garage door accessible by remote control rather than key, to keep thieves out.
Do you park your car on the driveway or the road, or is your garage cold and draughty? A modern, insulated roller garage door will protect you from the elements, and keep your car and other items stored in the garage free from frost. Think of the time saved in the morning that you don’t have to spend de-icing the car during the winter months. Not to mention the convenience of a warm car to drive!
Arguably, the benefit is even greater if you use your garage for other activities – as a gym, hobby room, play room, media room etc. Note how cold it can get in the garage without heating or insulation and fit a new garage door to solve the problem.
Older style garage doors are notorious for being unreliable and temperamental. If your door is difficult to open or close, the mechanism sticks, the lock doesn’t work or there are other daily irritations with the functionality of the door, maybe it’s time for an upgrade. What’s more, a compromised locking system can put your vehicle at risk and compromise the security of your home.
Choosing a new garage door allows you to make aesthetic improvements to your home too. Perhaps the old door design has become old-fashioned or was more to the taste of the previous property owner? Getting a replacement is a simple way to add your own personality to your home.
Give your home a facelift with a brand new door that matches the style of the property. While you’re at it, why not consider matching all the elements – front door, garage door and exterior windows? At Wessex Garage Doors, we supply and install a wide range of garage doors in a variety of styles, designs, materials and colours, so you’re bound to find the perfect solution.
For those who are considering selling their property, upgrading to a new garage door can be a great investment. You only get one chance to make a good first impression, and a smart new garage door is a great way to enhance the kerb appeal of your home.
Not only does this make the property more attractive (and therefore easier to sell) to buyers, it can also add real value.

Almost a year ago we worked with an acclaimed architect and a luxury home developer on a unique project in Surrey. We’ve been back this week to see the finished garage doors and they look absolutely stunning.
We were involved from the start to ensure the Hormann Open For Infill (OFI) chassis were installed in just the right position to allow for the 12mm Tricoya Extreme Durable MDF and 3mm Grespania porcelain cladding to match other areas of the new home. The design required the garage doors to sit flush and were slightly curved which presented further challenges.
As the expected weight of the infill was significant, the Anthracite Grey frame and chassis and Hormann SupraMatic P electric operators were fitted to suit. There are some 30 springs per garage door!
We’re sure you’ll agree these are unique garage doors.

Love it or loathe it, Christmas is just around the corner and that can only mean one thing: it’s time to get festive!
There’s no better way to show off your love for Christmas than through an abundance of festive decorations. Whether it be a fully decorated Christmas tree inside or a huge plastic Santa outside, there are so many ways to easily spread your festive cheer.
One area to think about decorating in particular is your garage door. These large external doors provide effectively a blank canvas for creativity over the festive period, and offer many options for decorative designs. Regardless of whether your garage door is automated, sectional or roller, if you’re stuck for ideas, here are four great ways to add a festive touch to your garage door.
What would Christmas be without twinkly fairy lights? If you’ve already decorated your tree and have some lights left over, you can always hang them on the outside of your garage door instead. Whether you hang them in lines or create your own festive design, adding lights can transform your door and make it a showpiece of the neighbourhood.
One quick side note though; it’s important to make sure that the lights you use are waterproof and suitable for outside use. Otherwise, they might not last very long in the chilly winter weather.
If you want to really show off to your neighbours this Christmas, why not think about investing in an outdoor projector?
As the days get shorter over winter and the evenings become darker earlier on, your garage door becomes the perfect screen to project festive features onto. This gives your home a real ‘wow’ factor, stopping people in their tracks to stare admiringly at your high-tech decoration.
From sporting events to creating your very own outdoor cinema, investing in a projector could also prove cost-effective over the long-run, since you can use it all year round.
If you’d rather avoid going all out on huge Christmas decorations, it is perfectly possible to decorate your garage door on the cheap as well. Using a combination of stickers and magnets, you can transform your garage door into whatever you like – whether it be a snowman’s face, a personalised message, or a colourful winter scene.
These types of decoration may not give the same level of ‘wow’ factor as a projector or set of bespoke lights, but they will offer a personal touch that brings even more festive cheer to your home and the surrounding neighbourhood.
If you have an artistic side, creating your own banner or mural can really show it off. Whether you paint a wintery design straight onto your garage door, or display an already-produced sketched design, adding a slice of winter to your garage door can really help bring your home into the festive season.
You could even think about making the design three-dimensional. This will draw the eye of nearby visitors and make the experience of looking at your garage door truly immersive.
If you are keen to decorate your garage door for Christmas but are concerned about its level of wear and tear, here at Wessex Garage Doors we can quickly diagnose and repair any potential issues. After all, by decorating your garage door for Christmas, you will be making it stand out to the neighbourhood. Therefore, it’s important for it to be secure against the potential threat of burglars.
For expert advice on how to ensure your door is secure, please do not hesitate to contact our friendly team today.

On 5th October Wessex Garage Doors jointly celebrated 30 years in business with The Corporate Door Company (CDC) who celebrate 10.
The event was held at Lingfield Park Resort in the beautifully dressed Pavilion and was attended by 75 which included the Wessex Garage Doors and CDC teams, the CEO of Novoferm UK and a few of his key staff members, plus a number of suppliers that have worked with us for as many years.
The event started with a welcome drink, a quick chat, a few words from the MD, and then a three course sit down meal.
During the meal Jeremy Baker, CEO Novoferm UK, made a lovely toast and presented raffle prizes generously gifted to us by them. A member of Wessex Garage Doors, Zsolt, and a member of the CDC team, Chris, were lucky enough to walk away with a £100 restaurant voucher and other members received Novoferm jackets.
Following the end of the meal the MD, Marc Rorison, presented Beth with some flowers to thank her for all her efforts in planning the party. Two Service Awards were also presented. Mark Edmonds was presented with a Long Service Award for his 30 years with Wessex Garage Doors and Andrew House with a CDC Service and Dedication Award. Mark, a big fan of fishing, is off on a week’s holiday to a fishing paradise in Devon and Andrew, a Porsche fanatic, will be spending the day at Silverstone racing Porsches some time next year.
Then it was time for the big game – ‘Head and Tails’. We all stood and the MD read out a number of questions that required a true (hands on the head) or false (hands on the bottom) answer – questions included ones like ‘can lightening strike twice in the same place’ – true or false?! As people got answers wrong only a few remained standing and in the second round it was down to only two – Mark from the CDC factory in Dorset and Deborah from Barclays Bank in Banstead. Deborah was lucky enough to walk away with the ‘golden money case’ and tells us she will be using it to fund her granddaughter’s gymnastic’s trip but we hope she also treats herself.
Simon Evans, comedian, made us laugh with a 20 minute set, followed by music and dancing. What attracted most people, some more than others, was the photo booth and props – there were so many laughs with the booth being used, of course, more so towards the end of the evening as alcohol took affect. In fact there were so many smiley faces throughout the evening with lots of mingling and talking – this was so lovely to see.
As people said their goodbyes they were presented with a boxed parting gift of a personalised bottle of Prosecco and two glasses in the hope the party goers would continue to celebrate back at home.
The evening wouldn’t have been so special if it wasn’t for the staff at Lingfield Park Resort who took so much care of us during the night and for KT Entertainments Ltd who supplied the PA system to ensure our speeches could be heard together with the fantastic DJ and photo booth. Karl made sure that everyone made full use of the booth and props.
The room it’s self wouldn’t have looked so wonderful if it hadn’t of been dressed by Butterflies and Bows – the chair covers, sashes and balloons made the room that extra special and all of this was captured on camera by Barney from Barney Warner Photography Barney took some wonderful photos – we hardly new he was there during the night – and many of these have been placed together in the video below.
Here’s to another many years ahead!
