Replacing your garage door can be a difficult decision because there so are many options available to you. Motorised garage doors have become more popular of the years and we’re here to take a look at why this is.


Being stuck at home for a third national lockdown, we’ve had time to assess how little space we have at home. This is especially true for those who have been working from home and trying to cram their work computers and a new desk into a tiny corner of the house. Spending more time inside has brought it to a lot of people’s attention that they could really do with some extra space. It may not be the first thing to come to mind but have you thought about converting your garage?


Over the years we’ve seen garage doors develop in both quality and technology. Despite this, at Hipwoods we still find ourselves replacing newly installed doors. Some of these doors have been so low quality that they have been ‘kicked in’ with one hit. You can see an example of this in one of our recent Facebook videos where we took out the whole bottom half of a door in just a few kicks. If that isn’t enough of a reason to not skimp on quality, here are a few more for you to consider.


Most households within the UK have a garage door, and they are vital for keeping your vehicles and belongings safe. But it is also important to keep your own safety in mind when it comes to using and being around your garage door. If you don’t take care, it could result in damage being caused to the door itself or injury to either yourself or a member of the family. That is why I wanted to take some time to list a few garage door safety tips to help you stay safe. There are a few things to look out for and keep an eye on, read on if you would like to know more.


Garages used to be predominantly used for storing and protecting our vehicles, but they are now used as workshops, extra storage and even gyms.
