Old House, New Garage Door?

A property with a new garage door.

A new garage door should complement the property it is installed in. When you buy a new garage door from Auto, you are also buying a service from an experienced team that have installed garage doors in hundreds of properties in Norfolk and surrounding counties. We know which doors are best suited to older buildings and period properties.

Up & Over 

For spacious garages, the up & over design represents a secure and cost-effective choice. Up & over doors are available in two styles – retractable and canopy and is the most common type of door fitted to garages. Our up & over range is available in many colours, designs and materials and because of this up & over doors are a versatile solution to suit all budgets. 

Coming with a 10-year guarantee from manufacturers Garador and having achieved the Secured by Design accreditation, these up & over doors are an extremely secure option.


Where the garage is used for purposes other than storage – and thermal efficiency is a concern – sectional doors are the best solution. Sectional doors can be constructed with insulation in between the steel inner and outer panels and are compliant with all European safety standards. They can be fitted to a range of different door frame shapes and are available in a wide variety of colours, styles and finishes.

Sectional doors are comprised of separate sections rather than a single panel, which rise vertically meaning you don’t lose any driveway space in front of your garage. They provide a full opening drive-through width, which makes them a great choice if you own a wider vehicle.


Some older garages may not be a standard shape. Roller doors are good for narrow entrances and garages with less headroom. They open vertically and don’t take up any room inside the garage, saving valuable space. Again, Garador’s roller doors are compliant with all European safety standards and they lock automatically on closure providing extra security.

Coming in a range of different colours, styles and finishes there is a design to suit every property. Prices for roller doors start at £1150 + VAT.
