Replacing Your Garage Door

Finesse Windows represents over 4 decades of our family’s life’s work. We care deeply about its success and reputation and want every member of our team and every customer to feel that unique sense of dealing with a truly customer focused family business.

We are immensely proud of our track record for customer satisfaction, which reflects in thousands of positive reviews and word of mouth recommendations. However, it is not only our customers that are impressed by the work we do.

Although your garage is designed to house your car, most of the time it ends up being used for storing other items. Whatever you keep in it, you'll need to be sure your garage door keeps things safe and secure. However, security is not the only consideration when choosing a garage door, as adding a garage door with style can also add value to your home.

At Finesse, we pride ourselves on an intimate knowledge of what goes into making a great garage door. We use the latest manufacturing techniques, and the finest materials, to craft doors that are much more than just something that fills a hole in a wall.

A garage door can quickly become the focal point for your home, even if that is only down to its sheer size. Anyone looking to make their property look as good as possible will want to ensure that their garage door is part of the plan and while looks are important, we install the latest designs and technology to ensure that your doors can even make life a little easier.

The following guide will hopefully remove some of the myths and answer the questions related to a new Garage Door for your home.

Garage Door Designs

Garage doors have evolved significantly over the past few decades. No longer do you find the same repetitive on every homes garage – you can now fully customise your doors in a wealth of colours, styles, materials and operations that you like.

When it comes to buying a new garage door, the process can sometimes be daunting. There are so many different styles and functions, that it can be difficult to know just which one is best for you and your home. Is a wooden garage door durable enough? What exactly is a roller garage door?

Up & Over and Side Hinged Garage Doors from Finesse Windows are probably the two most diverse type of garage door when it comes to design because it is possible to produce your own bespoke design.

Up and Over Garage Doors come in 2 styles – retractable and canopy and are the most common king of Garage Door fitted in the UK, they are available in a wide range of colours, patterns and finishes including wood effect. Up & Over Garage Doors are suitable for single and double garages and offer a great value to suit all budgets.

Side-hinged garage doors, as the name suggests, open like traditional double doors that you might find on your conservatory. Side-hinged garage doors swing open horizontally. They are perfect for garages that are being used as a work or living space.

Roller Garage Doors are simple and stylish that maximises the available space in your garage. Even the narrowest of garages with minimal headroom solutions can be met using a slimline cassette option, alongside openings with irregular dimensions such as sloped or uneven ground or those with arched roofs. Again suitable for single and double garages they are available in a large range of colours, finishes and widths to design the perfect solution for your home.

Sectional Garage Doors are made of separate sections which rise vertically so you do not lose any space on your driveway, and provide a full opening drive-through width to give extra room. Sectional Garage Doors are an ideal choice for Birmingham homes where space is of a premium. Again suitable for single and double garages they are available in a large range of colours, finishes including the option for glazed panels.


Why buy a new Garage Door?

There are many reasons which our customers contact us to discuss new garage doors for their West Midlands home.


A garage door is one of the main external feature of your home. An attractive door can bolster the aesthetic appeal of your home overall, leading to greater kerb appeal and possibly even an increase in value.


Garages are prime targets for intruders. A visibly older and weaker garage door will be an attractive target for thieves. A brand new garage door with all the latest security features which come as standard on Finesse Windows garage doors will be the best deterrent and defence against potential intrusion.


With us all looking for that additional living space, a renovated garage often requires an upgraded door. If you’ve renovated your garage with the intention of using it as a living space, you may wish to install a garage door that caters for heavy foot traffic, such as a side-hinged garage door.

Steel or Wood?

Garage Doors are available in different materials which have pros and cons:


Steel is the most common material used for making garage doors across the West Midlands. This is largely due to steel’s strong, yet workable nature, meaning that it offers excellent security for your property. Steel is an extremely robust material that guarantees superb protection and insulation all year round.


If you are after a particularly good-looking style of garage door, timber is the perfect option. Wooden garage doors are popular thanks to their inviting appearance, natural strength and durability.


What makes up the cost of a new Garage Door?


Sometime many visits are required for you to feel comfortable with making such high value purchases. We don’t charge for design visits and consultations, we can provide material colour samples, you can visit our showroom, and walk around the factory to see where the magic happens in production.

There are so many decisions for you to make; the Garage Door type, the style, and the colours – we don’t believe in one size fits. Every Garage Door supplied by Finesse Windows is made to measure and designed to your exact needs.


From survey through to final installation every stage of the Garage Door manufacture and installation is checked. During manufacture a Garage Door will go through 7 checked individual stages of manufacture and then is inspected by our Factory Manager who checks one last time before the Garage Door leave the building.

We continually invest in improving our products as technologies change; we always want our Garage Doors to be the most secure, energy efficient, strong and stylish products on the market.

Our fitting teams are all MTC approved which means they are capable of fitting products to meet building regulation standards. They also understand this is your home and will treat it with care.

It goes without saying that we want all of our projects to look incredible and this is achieved by using the finest materials and the latest manufacturing techniques to bring a vision to life.

Unlike some companies, we have the opportunity to guarantee this quality too, thanks to our approach that encompasses the entire process, from design all the way through to manufacture, installation and aftercare.



We want you to be 100% happy with your installation, so we will arrange for our Customer Care Supervisor to visit you on the day of completion or shortly after to make sure you are happy.

A Finesse installation gives you peace of mind of an insurance backed comprehensive 10 year guarantee or as we prefer to call it our DECADE OF CARE.



We often find out that garage doors are often overlooked by homeowners, even though a garage door is often an additional entryway into your home. We recommend that you give a replacement garage door some serious thought if you notice any of the following:

  • Wear & tear
  • Movement issues
  • Noise
  • Security Concerns

A new garage door can take anywhere from 3 hours to a full day for a complete install.

Garages come in various sizes. You should ensure that the garage door size you choose is suitable for your personal requirements.

There are many factors which will dictate your Garage Doors lifespan such as the weather, usage, maintenance and how it was fitted. However a typical Garage Door will last between 15 and 30 years.

After agreeing a contract we then take a 25% deposit which is then covered by a statutory 14 day cooling off period, whereby you can cancel the order if you wish with no financial repercussions. 

During this 14 day period we carefully measure the exact sizes of all items to be manufactured by way of technical survey. We double check everything that has been agreed and ensure that all the specifications match your expectations. We also take the time to carry out a risk assessment of your property. 

Finesse Windows then start the manufacturing process, ensuring at every stage we are working to our high quality standards. During this manufacturing process, we will contact you to arrange and confirm the Installation Date. Before each and every Window leaves the factory our Factory Supervisor personally checks every single manufactured item to ensure it is perfect.

We contact you by post to offer you a firm installation date which you can confirm or re-arrange. On the day of installation our fitting team will work with you to ensure minimum disruption and mess to your family and your home. They bring their own doormats and vacuum. Upon completion the Installation Team will do a final review with you by taking you around your installation in your home and showing you all aspects of the installation to ensure the expected high quality levels of finish have been met.

Finesse Windows honour your 10 year After-Care service promise should you ever need to contact us. It is common for our clients to contact us two or three times during their ‘decade of care’ to attend to minor issues that emerge from time to time and to ensure the installation is maintained to a high standard.




Our Finesse team thrives on customer satisfaction. From first contact through to aftercare, every company representative strives to exceed your expectations. People are at the centre of everything we do, we understand the value of personal relationships throughout your journey with us.
