Choosing a Garage Door Installer

Cherwell Doors are experts in garage door installation.

Why buy from a DHF Garage Door Group member?

Your DHF Garage Door Group installer will guide you towards the door that best meets your needs. An initial site survey enables the installer to recommend the door that best suits your budget, your home and your lifestyle needs. For example, a busy life may suggest automatic operation with remote control and a low maintenance door type that never needs painting. Partial use of the garage as a utility space or workshop may lead you to a roller door that leaves overhead storage space free. It is the role of a skilled installer to specify the perfect door for you.

Quality advice and expert installation

Choosing a DHF Garage Door Group installer is your assurance that you will not be supplied with an unsafe, poor quality door that has been badly fitted by inexperienced personnel.

Choosing a DHF Garage Door Group installer gives you the reassurance that:

  • the door will come with a unique 2 year warranty that in the unlikely event that a member installer ceases trading, the DHF will ensure that another DHF Garage Door Group member installer resolves the problem for you
  • the door complies with applicable safety legislation and will bear the legally required CE marking
