Side Hung Garage Doors

Side hung garage doors are extremely convenient for people who want to pop in and out of the garage quickly and easily. Lots of garages are not used for cars, but as storerooms or utility-type rooms where ease of access is important.

Side Hung Timber Garage Doors

We offer side hung timber garage doors in softwoodidigbo hardwood, solid cedar and other timbers on request e.g. oak.

The softwood versions are a basic framed, ledged and braced door which must be painted on all faces and edges before installation. Our damp British climate with extended dry spells is not suited to exterior softwood doors and windows, so regular re-decorating is important during the life of the door.

The solid cedar and hardwood side hung door versions are naturally more stable and durable and can come fully finished in Sikkens or Teknos woodstain which does not require any maintenance for up to approx. 7 years and are also available made-to-measure at no extra cost. The Garador timber side hung garage doors are a cedar infill on sturdy steel door leaf chassis, great for stability and strength. They also come pre-hung on a steel goalpost frame to make on site installation very quick and easy.

Side Hung Steel Garage Doors

Side hung steel garage doors are the most popular as they can be maintenance-free and are cheaper in price than the cedar and hardwood versions.
