Smart Home Garage Doors

Looking for an automated garage door to work with a Smart Home system? Then the AlluGuard range is perfect for you!

Their automated roller doors are powered by Somfy. With the purchase of either the Connexoon or Tahoma Smart Home hub (both available to purchase from ourselves) you can control your garage doors, security system, lights, blinds and other connected devices via your Smart Phone. Both systems are also compatible with Nest and Alexa.

Set scenarios such as “when I leave the office activate ‘Im arriving’ mode” and have your gates, garage door and lights come on waiting for you to get home. Similarly set “I’m leaving” for the blinds and garage door to close and lights to switch off.

Connexoon centres around access to your home, providing smart control of your garage door, gate and lighting. Tahoma is the complete smart home solution for monitoring and operating your garage doors, gates, blinds, curtains, lights, electrical equipment, heating and home security.

AlluGuard roller doors offer the very best in security with all doors coming alarmed as standard. The standard 77 range is Secured by Design Level One but for added peace of mind chose the Qompact, Level 2 STS 202 BR2 certified.

The doors come in a range of 24 colours/finishes enabling you to pick a stylish, secure and smart garage door to complement your home.

We are the area’s dedicated AlluGuard distributor. We are a local, family company offering excellent customer service, so not only do you get the best door at fantastic pricing but a warm fuzzy feeling from buying local too!

iso45 Secured by Design Automated Sectional Garage Door in Golden Oak

Concerned about garage door security?  Then the Secured by Design range is for you!

This stunning golden oak sectional garage door was installed in Yarnton, Oxfordshire for a property developer.

On the outside it may look like any other sectional door but it is actually a ‘lean, mean, crime busting machine’ which has been upgraded to Secured by Design status.

All Secured by Design garage doors are certified to CS 5051 STS202 and approved by ACPO Association of Chief Police Officers and are available in our Roller, Sectional and Up and Over ranges.

The Secured by Design upgrade for a sectional door is the ‘Novoguard Assembly Pack’.  This includes heavy duty, extra strengthening brackets and springs, as seen in pictures below:

#HandsOffOurHorton

Hands off our Horton

save our hortonOur community is reeling from the changes being made at the Horton General Hospital.

Just last week consultant led maternity care ceased and was replaced with a midwife led unit and now Oak Ward (elderly care) has also closed.

With the ever increasing population in Banbury we have never needed our General Hospital as much as we do now.  If you haven’t received care from the Horton yourself you probably have a friend or relative who has.

It is incredibly concerning that our children’s ward, critical care and A&E could be next in the firing line.

On a personal note the Horton has provided emergency care to our two young daughters on more than one occasion.  Both our girls have rare growth conditions resulting in needing emergency treatment and being admitted to the Horton’s Children’s Ward more times than we have liked!  Mark’s parents have also received much needed emergency treatment in A&E, the Critical Care Unit and as inpatients.

We can’t begin to imagine our community without this necessary service.  Our community NEEDS a fully functioning General Hospital!

So for the month of October, for all door orders received, Elite Garage Doors will donate our waste disposal fee to the Save the Horton fund as our way of supporting the #HandsOffOurHorton campaign.

Rogue Roller Garage Doors

Rogue Roller Garage Doors

Last week, BBC Watchdog featured an article about a company selling roller garage doors which were failing and then, when the customers went to claim on the warranty, found it not to be worth the paper it was printed on.

The companies mentioned in the BBC’s report are well known to us and we have been called to many customers who have had problems with these doors.  Often they are beyond repair and just a couple of years after having their new door fitted customers are paying for a replacement new door.

Such stories sadden and anger us as it brings our whole industry into question. We recently replaced a roller garage door near Banbury where, despite the elderly customer purchasing an extended warranty, and being driven to the nearest town to get the cash to pay the fitters for the extended warranty, was then told it was nil and void when the door failed.   We have even been told stories of salesmen attempting to pass our installations off as their own in a bid to secure business!

We wanted to reassure customers that the roller garage doors we supply are not made by this manufacturer.  We work with established manufacturers such as AlluGuard, Aluroll and Novoferm.

 logo

Our roller garage doors come with a minimum five year warranty, as standard.  When you purchase a roller garage door from us we will provide you with details of your warranty and, in the unlikely event of a problem arising, we will deal with the manufacturer for you.  However, the information we provide you with means you could also approach the manufacturer direct if you so wished.

Both ourselves and the manufacturers we work with are members of the Door and Hardware Federation (DHF) and it was their Technical Expert who featured in the BBC’s programme.

You can read more about the DHF’s report at http://www.dhfonline.org.uk/news.aspx?NewsArticleId=188

The BBC’s full investigation can be found at http://bbc.in/2guOSuS

And you can view our completed roller garage door projects on our website at http://www.elitegd.co.uk/projects/roller-doors-projects/.

We, along with the manufacturers we work with, recommend an annual inspection for all garage doors.  If you are concerned about your roller garage door and would like to book a service, call us on 01295 272370 or email enquiries@elitegd.co.uk.

Side Hinged Garage Door in Southmoor, Oxfordshire

Side Hinged Garage Door in Southmoor, Oxfordshire

The side hinged garage door range is increasingly popular with customers who prefer pedestrian access to their garage without having to open the whole door.  However, side hinged doors can be expensive with manufacturer retail prices ranging from over £1000 to as much as £5000 for the insulated side hinged range.

To provide our customers with a cost effective solution, we have teamed up with Cardale to offer two steel designs from £790 fitted*, a choice of the Gemini (shown here) and the Georgian Regent.

To keep to this price you need to order a ‘standard size door’ which is 2134mm wide x 1981 or 2134mm high (plus frame) or, in old money, 7’0 wide x 6’6 or 7’0 high.  When you start getting into made to measure sizes, or change material from say steel to timber or GRP then the price starts to climb.

Whilst we call this size ‘standard’ it is surprising how many garages aren’t ‘standard’ size which is what we have here, an opening which is wider than the standard 2134mm door.

So to keep the door a standard size (and the cost down) we packed the opening with timber and cladded either side.  The cost of the additional timber and cladding comes to less than a made to measure size door.  And to look at the opening, you would have no idea.

If you would like to know more about our side hinged range, or to receive a free quotation, simply give us a call to arrange an on-site survey. If we can save you money on your new door, then we will.

Enhance your “Kerb Appeal” with a matching front door and garage door

 

matching front door and garage door

Matching front door and garage door

phil-spencer-and-kirstie-allsopp-pic-channel-4-577536990

“Kerb Appeal”, a phrase made popular in the early noughties by Sarah Beeny (Property Ladder) and Phil and Kirstie (Location, Location, Location), is still just as relevant a concept.  We all appreciate a finely presented house and with our British love of “keeping up with the Jones’” it’s every more prevalent today.

Whilst the phrase primarily derived from vendors enhancing the look of their home to attract potential buyers, most of us enjoy taking pride in our homes and secretly would like our home to be the best dressed on the street.

Changing your front door or garage door can transform the look of your home, change both to complement one another, and your Kerb Appeal has gone through the roof!

Composite Front Door in Anthracite Grey

Composite front doors such as those from Door-Stop International are still relatively new to the market but are increasingly popular.  Bringing a splash of colour back to your home, without the need to be sanding/re-painting like the timber doors of old, they have a low maintenance finish, easy to look after, but really do bring the ‘wow’ factor.   Whenever I am driving in a residential area a composite front door will always catch my eye.

To complement your new front door, consider a garage door to match.  The range of garage doors available has never been so vast.  Instead of a standard up and over or side hinged doors you can now choose fully insulated, automated sectional and roller doors, often with a surprisingly affordable price tag.

Cardale now offer over 20 colours/finishes to choose from on most of their garage door range.  Then there is the window options and handle options to consider.  External doors have come a long way over the last sixty years!

Bedford Side Hinged in Anthracite Grey

Chances are if you’re in the market for a new front door or garage door you probably haven’t purchased one before and with ten year warranties as standard, you shouldn’t be looking to replace it for a long time after that.  So you want to get it right.

Research potential installers carefully and consider your options.  You don’t need to assume that you must have ‘like for like’, there is so much choice available to you.  For help and advice, speak to an experienced installer, such as Elite, who can help you navigate the brochures, give you differing solutions for your budget and supply and install both your front door and garage door to really transform your home and enhance your kerb appeal.
