The team adjusted our garage door to automate the opening and closing of it. Initially they came out and assessed the art of the possible and gave us a clear option that was assessed and priced in short order. We decided to proceed, the parts ordered and the fitting promptly scheduled. The installer arrived on time and worked throughout the day, completing what is a very neat and tidy job that works perfectly. Thank you for an excellent piece of work.

HORMANN ELECTRIC GARAGE DOOR

I visited the Garage Doors showroom at Batford Mill Harpenden viewed the various garage doors and the working mechanisms. Service and good advice from the sales staff fully explained the various garage door options with no pressure to purchase from the saleman. Choose the Hormann electric door with a texture finish the manufactured door was delivered in the time quoted. Mark the fitter arrived exactly on time and he explained the work he was to under take. Removed the old garage door and frame work without causing any damage to the brickwork. He then installed the mechanism/track connected the power and fitted the door. Works beautifully the installation is superb which is a testament to his workmanship. Many thanks again for a quality door and great workmanship.

We ordered a sectional garage door. It took a few months to arrive but the communication from George was clear and quick. George came over to do a quote - he was friendly and professional, as was the man who came to fit the door. Overall a really good service. The door is of high quality.

I recently purchased a manual up and over replacement garage door from Garage Doors Ltd in Harpenden. The whole process was easy from my initial contact to the site visit, quote and then placing the order. The work was completed within forty eight hours of actually finalising the order. Work on site was quick and the site was left clean. All in all I’m very pleased with the outcome.

Called them over Xmas to look at my roller garage door, they responded on 4 Jan (no one else did) and came out on 11 Jan to effect a simple repair. They warned me that the motor is not going to last and this eventually packed up 11 Feb. They came back on 15 Feb and replaced the motor. Very efficient and quick with their service.

The fitter was fantastic and appears to have done a great job - and he was cheerful and enthusiastic, which means a lot to a customer. I was very pleased with his work and with his can-do approach to getting over any difficulties in finding ways to support and set up the mechanism. I was also very grateful that he left the site spotlessly clean and had arrived for the job at the agreed time. The Hormann garage door is of beautiful quality.

Our requirements for a replacement garage door was discussed with George who was very helpful and polite. The time schedule for delivery and fitting was also discussed and approved. The door fitter was very professional in manner and carried out the work to our complete satisfaction within a couple of hours. A good explanation of the procedure for locking and unlocking the garage was provided. The door appears to be of high quality and of very good value for the price charged.

Not only is the door top quality and lives up to all our expectations, but the team who fitted it were super efficient. We barely even noticed they were there and they were done very quickly leaving a quality install behind. Garage Doors (London) Ltd have been great communicators and very helpful through every step from initial approach, to visiting the showroom, quoting, survey etc.

Absolutely delighted with our new garage door. From first call, having door fitted to paying invoice after work completed very pleased. Staff are polite, efficient and very helpful. They were able to offer visit to give quotation without having to wait weeks. Was very impressed during first call they had got up satellite map and had indicated where my house and garage are. Chap that came to give quote was very helpful and we received the quote quickly. Excellent price and they were able to come and fit door within 10 days. Really pleased as didn't want to wait weeks. The chap that came to fit door did great job and was polite, professional and helpful. I would definitely recommend this company. Excellent customer service, excellent quality door for a very good price.

Needed to replace my garage doors and after getting a wide array of prices from builders and carpenters I tried looking at companies that specialised in garage doors. Really glad I did, as I couldn't be happier with the new doors. They are much more secure than my previous timber doors and won't need any work on my part in the years to come. Unlike other vendors in this area, Garage Doors Ltd send someone round to do a free survey and take all the measurements required so you don't have to worry about this yourself. Although I think I am reasonable at DIY I was concerned about missing something important if I were measuring this myself but with these guys, I didn't have to. If you're having a frame built to order it better be right when it comes and thanks to their survey, it was! Spoke to George before the survey, he gave practical advice on what to consider with the purchase and this was reinforced by the chap who came to do the survey. He showed us samples of the material so my wife and I could make an informed decision about colour and design rather than only looking at pictures online. When the fitters arrived they were in and out in a few short hours. Both very pleasant and professional leaving no trace of the previous doors or any mess once the job was done. Price-wise they were very competitive too which was another plus. I can't recommend this company enough - if you are in the market for garage doors trust the people that do it for a living and give these guys a go.

The whole process has been seamless. After my 4 quotes, I decided to go with Garage Doors as they are a local company and I found Keith to be genuine and knowledgeable, although they were not the cheapest. The timescales provided were exactly how the works proceeded. After the initial deposit was paid, we received an installation date after 2 weeks. The fitters turned up on time, and within 3 hours I had a new fully functioning garage door. There was no damage to the surrounding area that I could see, even though we were expecting a significant amount. The guys gave me a run through with the remotes, the manual pully, and the fixed remote on the wall. Couldn't ask for more. Worth every penny!

We contacted Garage Doors as we wanted to upgrade both our front and garage door as part of the refurbishment works on our town house with regards to appearance and insulation. After discussing the options with Garage Doors, a survey was completed by one of the companies fitters who talked us through all of the options following which we placed an order. The doors were supplied and fitted as arranged in one day with no issues. We were particulary impressed in the way everything was kept clean and tidy during the work with all waste materials being cleared and taken away. The quality and finish of both the garage and front doors are outstanding. We would thoroughly recommend Garage Doors to anyone wanting a quality service.

Having just had a rather disastrous en-suite renovation complete the week before I was not in the mood for another home repair. However, the installation team showed up and within minutes it was clear they knew what they were doing. They had the job completed in a couple of hours and even tidied up and re-hung my bike rack - way above and beyond. I would go as far as to say this was the best, and easiest, home repair we've had done. I can't recommend them highly enough.

Contacted Garage Doors (London) Ltd on the strength of the prior reviews. Had an initial visit from one of the fitters who measured up, upon receiving an informal quote via email I queried the details and was advised by Keith he would send 'one of his best fitters' to double check. A week later another visit from his fitter to measure up again, who at the time seemed to be knowledgeable and provide recommendations that were understandable. A revised price was sent over email, with a request for a 50% deposit payment. However, there seemed to be reluctance to provide a formal quotation or pro-forma invoice with the full work breakdown. Having made clear my understanding of the agreed work breakdown an invoice eventually was sent, though still rather fully on the detail. All the same payment was made. A month later the door has arrived from the factory and a fitter arrives on-site to install. This is where everything went totally downhill. The fitter complains that the door is too big for the opening. He has a copy of the email thread regarding the order and the detail of the work breakdown as I understood it to be (and wasn't contested at any stage prior). The whole encounter left me with little confidence with the company, trying to address the matter with their office was a nightmare and they didn't seem to care too much about the inconvenience caused. Eventually, my deposit payment was returned and doubt I will hear back from them again.

The trader replied (on 23/10/2020)
I am very sorry you have had a bad experience with our company. We have been in business nearly 50 years & fit thousands of doors every year. Very occasionally we make a measuring error. We only hope that returning the deposit while still on site proves we are honourable and contrite. Of course we would re-order a replacement door if given the chance. Once again very sorry for any inconvenience. Keith Thompson

Keith at Garage Doors (London) Limited was a pleasure to work with. Even during 'lockdown' he came to measure up promptly, and again when we changed our minds on what we wanted, but it was no problem, and the electric roller door was fitted on time, within budget by two experienced workmen to whom nothing was too much trouble. They worked quietly and quickly, and came back to fit an edge strip to 'finish off' the work. They were extremely tidy and took away the old door. Highly recommend this company.

From start to finish everyone I dealt with at Garage Doors Ltd were very helpful and knowledgeable about what was required. They offered a better alternative to what I originally requested. The quality of the doors that we choose were as described. A date for the fitting was discussed and agreed. The fitters turned up when advised an were very professional. The doors are well fitted and secure. My Mum is really pleased with the final outcome. I had to send pictures to our relatives. Great company

Immediate response to phone call. Fitter arranged for next day and arrived on time. Damage repaired, which I had thought impossible.
