We have just installed a new electric roller door on a large garage opening and was set on a particular brand. Gary visited us promptly and having looked at the project suggested we consider and alternative - a Warm Protection door - based on his experience. This was backed up by some online research and we are glad we changed our minds. The door was fitted within a couple of weeks to suit us and comments about the high standard of professionalism and workmanship mentioned in other reviews are spot on. We have been refurbishing our house over the past 18 months and feel we have a good sense of what each end of the spectrum looks like! Highly recommended.

Our garage door was ready for another repaint but, as it had seen better days, we decided to look into the probability of replacing it. Although our options were open, high on the list was an electric roller door. We've always used the garage for the purpose it was intended but, being fairly narrow, we could not consider any door where the frame would adversely affect access or even take a couple of inches off the overall length. We visited several showrooms but the sales staff didn't inspire much confidence about the products they had on offer or whether they would fit in with our criteria. Each time we came away wondering whether another tin of paint would be the best option of all. Then we spotted Doorman's entry in a local leaflet and gave them a ring. Gary came out the next day and talked us through their product. We placed an order immediately and it arrived the following week! Installation by Gary and Kenny was done in a very professional and friendly manner. They worked conscientiously and paid meticulous attention to detail and the final result is superb. We are extremely pleased with our new purchase and have no hesitation in fully recommending their services.

Gary removed my old door and fully installed a new system and surround. The transformation was outstanding and I cannot speak highly enough of the professionalism and workmanship. From start to finish the process has been smooth and simple. Gary was extremely pleasant throughout and extremely helpful. Once the installation was completed he even took me through the operation of the door and maintenance recommendations to ensure I will look after it ongoing. Great service and I would definitely recommend!

Gary worked to fit around me, happy to contact by email alone, came round to survey and discuss out of office hours to suit me. Worked out exactly what I needed and asked me the right questions and provided alternatives. No nonsense quote on the day of survey. Arranged a fit day to suit me, all installed smoothly and quickly. He even mopped my garage floor afterwards! No hesitation at all in recommending to others!

We have a double garage that had two twenty year old "tired" up & over garage doors. Phoned Doorman Garage Doors for a site visit and estimate to have them replaced. Gary arrived at the appointed time and after a sensible discussion we decided that if the RSJ (girder) supporting the garage roof above the existing doors could be proved to be strong enough it would be advantageous to remove the central pillar and install a double width roller shutter door. Gary provided a professional to assess the RSJ who deemed it more than adequate and said that the pillar was more for design than structural purposes. Decision made and Gary submitted a quotation for the removal/disposal of the existing doors and the supply/fitting of the new double width roller shutter door. Quote accepted, Gary returned and took a final measure and we agreed an installation date. On the day of installation Gary and his team arrived on time and commenced work straight away. He brought with him a professional builder to remove the pillar and reinstate the garage floor and a qualified electrician who was required for the roller door. All work was carried out in a very professional manner and on completion, all of the working area was swept and left clean and tidy. Gary and his team are all extremely friendly and pleasant persons who all take pride in their work.
