A recently installed up-and-over (canopy) garage door for a customer in our local Denton area. Chosen in a vertical rib style, in white, this type of door is often our entry level in terms of price. These doors do not compromise on quality though. Hörmann are one of the leaders in garage door technology, these German made doors and built to last and installed by our team with care to make it a great addition to your home.
The old door and timber frame were removed first on this job, so we are left with a brickwork opening, which is cleaned up and then the new door lifted into place. The steel door and frame are integral, which not only eliminated the need of a timber frame, but is also a big security improvement on old door types. Before we could fit the door on this job however, we needed some attention to the floor level.
As you might notice from the pictures. The floor is quite a lot out of level and the door has to be fitted “level”. Normally if the floor is just a little out of level (most are) that is acceptable and it just means a varying gap under the door, we can also fit a rubber weatherstrip for the door to close against to take up these small amounts of gaps. This floor needed something a bit different though and we installed an aluminium floor threshold, which the door sits on top of and then the underneath gets filled in with a very stiff mix of mortar to take up the difference in floor level. Without digging lots of the floor and drive up and turning the whole thing into a huge job, this is an option we have for our customers.
Once the door was in place, level and plumb, we could then fix it into place and finish the outside off in white uPVC. A new steel lintel had to be also put in place before the job could be done, so we neatly covered that with a soffit and fascia board and also lined the internal walls to cover up the old stained brickwork where the previous frame was. This creates a nice boxed in look to the door and is very simple to clean with just warm, soapy water. No more painting required!
