Garage Doors

Care is needed in designing suitable garage doors, which in the past were often vertically boarded. Too often pseudo or incorrect ssemi-historical styles are used, when there is a need for authentic detail. Equally, creative solutions are sometimes required as the use of sliding doors, which have a long history and can be preferable to modern alternatives, such as roller shutters, where space is limited.
