Frequently Asked Questions
About garage doors
Which garage doors tend to be the most popular in Bradford?
With its proud industrial heritage, a growing economy and one of the UK’s youngest populations, Bradford is home to a variety of modern and traditional properties. As such, we tend to see a large selection of different types of garage doors in the area. Over the years we’ve supplied and installed many white manual up and over models, for example, but at the same time we’ve also seen a surge in popularity for our electric roller garage doors.
Are there any particular security features that I should look out for?
According to a recent crime map compiled by the Telegraph & Argus, just over 3,000 burglaries were reported in Bradford in 2022. The city unfortunately fares poorly in this regard when compared to neighbouring areas in West Yorkshire, which makes home security all the more important. In only partnering with leading manufacturers, here at ABi Doors, we ensure that all our products are strong, resistant to being forced open and possess robust locking mechanisms.
Do your engineers travel throughout Bradford or just near the city centre?
We’re proud to serve customers across Yorkshire and a large part of the North of England, so yes, we regularly travel to Bradford and its surrounding areas. Mid-2021 population estimates show that around 550,000 live in the city, with many of these residing in towns like Bingley, Ilkley, Keighley and Shipley. We also do work in a whole host of nearby communities, such as Addingham, Baildon, Burley in Wharfedale, Cullingworth, Denholme, Eastburn, Eccleshill, Haworth, Menston, Oxenhope, Queensbury, Silsden, Steeton and Thornton.

How much can Bradford homeowners expect to pay for a new garage door?

Garage door case studies near you
We’re in the Bradford area installing and repairing garage doors every week, take a look at some of our recent garage door case studies near you.
We were contacted by a customer who wanted to replace their existing manual up and over garage door. They were in the process of renovating the front of their concrete garage and wanted a new automatic door. Up and over garage doors come in two ‘flavours’ – canopy and retractable. Often older manual doors will be using canopy door gear. Canopy door gear is not as easy to automate and the mechanism required reduces the drive through height.
In this case, an automatic up and over door would mean replacing the existing canopy door with a retractable type mechanism. Unfortunately, retractable door gear reduces the drive through width slightly.
(For more information on canopy and retractable door gear see our full article here)
Hormann retractable up and over doors are available with ‘retractable plus’ door gear. With retractable plus gear the pivot arms are positioned higher on the frame, above the height of most vehicle wing mirrors. This effectively eliminates any reduction in drive through width. Installing a Hormann retractable plus door allowed our customer to have the Georgian design they preferred with a fully automatic system.
As the customer was renovating the front of their garage, we needed to make sure that the installation fitted in with the customer’s schedule. We removed the old canopy door and timber frame, replacing it with the fully automatic Hormann retractable plus door.

This customer wanted to replace their existing roller door. The door had been in use for quite a few years and was, unfortunately, beyond economical repair. The existing door was mounted on the outside of the garage opening. Known as an ‘external roller door’ this type of installation is useful if there is very limited headroom inside the garage to install the roller door mechanism. It allows the full height of the opening to be utilised.
The customer wanted to maintain the full opening height available so we needed to install a new roller type door externally – in the same way that the old door was installed. Here at ABi we work with all the leading roller door manufacturers and after discussing the options with the customer we decided on the Hörmann RollMatic product. The RollMatic uses Hörmann’s own automation technology and the door can be opened and closed by hand when set to manual mode, as opposed to having to be ‘cranked’ with a handle.
After discussing the installation options with the customer we decided to install a door that was wide enough to overlap the brickwork up to the edge of the building. As this was an external roller door covering the brick provides a much neater and cleaner finish. The installation day was booked and the door was installed and commissioned in a single day.
