The latest trend in bespoke garage doors is to conceal them so well that at first glance, and even after staring long and hard at a wall, it is difficult to tell where the wall ends and the door begins.
This is where the latest development from door experts Prestige Doors and Gates has attracted intense popularity. It’s a door that sits, as its name suggests, flush with the exterior cladding. “This can be done to achieve a few effects but it is generally to create an ‘invisible’ door,” Prestige Doors and Gates’ Ben Broide says.
“Flushmount garage doors are also set up differently to traditional garage doors mechanically, and work on an independent torsion, which has the added benefit of requiring less headroom than your standard sectional door.
“To get the cladding just right, a story rod is created on site and used to match the pattern in the door and wall cladding perfectly when it is created in the factory.”
