Chatsworth Garage Doors

A decent garage door frame makes all the difference

The Yorkshire, Nottinghamshire & Derbyshire Garage Door Company

Chatsworth Garage Doors are a trusted installer of garage doors across Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Sheffield.  We’re frequently asked by clients whether they need a new garage door frame. Read on!

This is a very good question. You wouldn’t be blamed for thinking it makes sense to replace the tired old door whilst leaving a perfectly serviceable frame in place.

However, it’s somewhat more complicated than that. All garage doors are matched with particular frames, which give stability and security, and which support the reliable operation of the doors. In the absence of the appropriate frame, your new garage door might not fit well or may fail to operate smoothly, which could lead to potential issues either now or in the future.

There are one or two exceptions to the rule. For example, roller doors and sectional garage doors, popular with Nottingham, Derby and Sheffield home owners, don’t always require frames, as they feature a certain type of lifting mechanism. For the majority of traditional garage doors, however, a frame is crucial and it has to be the right one. 

Is it fine to keep the existing frame, or should you look at getting a replacement to go with your new garage door? Well, there are a number of considerations. For example, if your existing  frame is in great condition, quite new, and/or made of a robust material such as steel, retaining it might make sense, but only if it’s fully compatible with your new door. Moreover, if the frame’s damaged, worn or made from timber (which is susceptible to rot), it may well be advisable to have a new frame fitted. Our garage doors experts will be happy to advise you.

In the final analysis, investing in a new garage door frame to complement your new garage door is generally the way forward. Sure, it might add to your upfront costs, but it’s likely to save you time and money in the future. In fact, many modern garage doors actually come with factory-fitted frames, which makes the decision much easier.

In the final analysis, making sure your garage doors operate smoothly and reliably is generally worth the upfront investment. In any case, if you’re in any doubt, we’re here to help.
