We recently installed this white Hormann garage door in a classic Countess style for a customer in the lovely village of Charlesworth, Derbyshire.
The customer has recently had a new resin floor laid around the outside of the garage, so this new door finished the space off nicely. The old door was fitted into a timber frame, we removed both the door and frame and cleaned up the stonework ready for the new door.
New Hormann doors come in their own steel frame, this not only saves on painting and maintaining wood, it also helps with security, as the gaps around the door are minimised to avoid any tampering with the door. We fit the door in the opening and then clad over the frame using high quality uPVC trims and fascia board (as shown in the closeup picture). This leaves a surface that is easy to clean and maintain by simply using warm, soapy water to give it all a quick wipe over. Doing this every now and then will keep the installation looking as good as new.
After fixing the door and making final adjustments to locking and spring tension (to make the door safe and easy to use), we sealed up the whole job in a suitable “buff” coloured sealant to match the stonework.
