Frequently Asked Questions

About side garage doors

Why choose this type of door?

These kinds of doors are often called personnel doors, because they’re specifically designed for one-person access. They allow you to get in and out of your garage without retracting your entire garage door – handy for people who often need to get access. Best of all, you can match your main garage door for a seamless and stylish finish.

Can I get an insulated side garage door?

Yes – and it’s definitely something we’d recommend. You’d be amazed at the difference it makes to your space when your doors are property insulated, and the same can be said for the main garage door too. In our range, we can offer insulation up to 60mm.

What do garage side doors cost?

Personnel doors are incredibly useful and convenient, so for many of our customers, the benefit will always outweigh the cost. However, it’s good to know that they’re an affordable option, and we’ll work with you to get the best for your budget. As with any product at ABi, you can also choose to upgrade with hardware, different finishes and other extras that may add to the overall price, but we can advise you on this better during a home visit.

Which finishes do you offer?

We use the RAL colour system, with popular shades including light ivory, moss green and light grey. We also have plenty of grain finishes to choose from – like golden oak and rosewood. Even our solid timber side garage doors come in designs like ribbed and panelled.

Side Door Types

Types of side doors available

Because we have such a large selection of garage doors available, it makes sense that we bring that breadth of choice to our garage side doors, too. Not only can you pick the material your door is built from, but you can also consider colour and finish. Here’s more about what’s available.

Wooden: Timber doors endure year after year – not just in terms of trends, but in their solid construction. Our customers love their attractive grain and they also stand up to poor weather.

Steel: This material is known for being water-resistant and able to guard against weathering. It can be lighter than a timber door and needs no maintenance.

UPVC: Energy efficient, durable and low-maintenance, these are a good all-rounder for most garages.

Composite: Composite doors are commonly used on the front, back or side of your property, but they can also be used as a side door to your garage, offering more security and insulation with more design options available.
