Our Top 10 Favourite Garage Doors

Aug 2020

Over the years we’ve installed hundreds of garage doors all over Newcastle, Lake Macquarie, the Central Coast, Hunter Valley and Port Stephens areas.

From basic roller doors to stylish panel doors and custom made timber doors, we’ve installed doors for many types of residential and commercial properties.

As hard as it was to select just 10, here are some of our favourite doors from over the years that we’ve installed!

Gliderol Double Roller Door

10. Gliderol Roller Door

This double-width roller door proves that you don’t need to spend a fortune to tie your garage in to a modern façade. The Gliderol Roller Door is lightweight and quiet to open, but strong and secure to keep your family and home safe.

The colour of this door is Colorbond Woodland Grey, which suits the light render of the home and dark accents really well.

Opener: Merlin MR855BBU Silentdrive Elite with Battery Backup Kit.

9. Gliderol Oxford Panel Glide

What would normally be considered our most ‘Traditional’ style garage door, this Gliderol Oxford Smooth Panel Glide brings a classic element to this gorgeous home.

In Colorbond Surfmist with County Single Windows in the top panel, this door is the perfect fit for the white weatherboards and dark accents and driveway.

Opener: Merlin MS105 Commander Elite

Favourite Door - Gliderol Oxford
Western Red Cedar Door - White

8. Danmar Western Red Cedar Carriage Panel Door

Hamptons eat your heart out!

This door is a beautiful custom design by Danmar, creating a Carriage Panel Garage Door from Western Red Cedar Timber.

It also incorporates windows in the top panel to let light into the garage.

Opener: Merlin MS105 Commander Elite

7. Danmar Alipanel Door

This door is an Aluminium Panel Door, otherwise known as an ‘Alipanel’, manufactured by Danmar Garage Doors and installed by us. It is painted with 2 Pak Resene in Black & White colour.

The contemporary streamline design of the garage door suits this modern home so well, complementing the bold lines and structure of the façade.

Opener: Merlin MS105 Commander Elite

Favourite Door - Alipanel
Delta Custom at Bar Beach

6. Delta Custom Panel Door

This door was made by Delta, the Kings of Custom Garage Doors, and installed by us.  It is a panel garage door, made with raw finish vertical timber battens and a silver aluminium backing.

The raw timber look complements the bold cement features of the home, and we just love the pop of colour in the blue door!

Opener: Merlin MS125 Commander Extreme

5. Danmar Thermoflat

Danmar’s Thermoflat Garage Doors are sectional garage doors created from smooth finish, insulated panels. Read more on Insulated Garage Doors here.

We love these because they are the only doors that guarantee a smooth finish in a wide panel door, and also offer up to 30% reduced thermal transmission.

This door is a crisp white that complements the warm timber of the home really well.

Opener: Merlin MS105 Commander Elite

Favourite Door - Thermoflat
Flushmount Custom Door with Teak Battens

4. Delta Custom Panel Door

We love anything custom made, but the flush fit design is just something special! Another great build from Delta.

This is a Custom Flush Fit Panel Door with 40mm Pacific Teak Vertical Battens. The battens flow all the way around the sides of this garage, creating the illusion of a ‘hidden door’. Apart from looking fantastic, this door also allows natural light and airflow into the garage, whilst still providing safety and security.

Opener: Merlin MS105 Commander Elite

3. Gliderol Madison Panel Glide

A simple, but stunning door, this Madison Panel Glide by Gliderol is the perfect addition for this home.

In Colorbond Monument, the dark woodgrain panels balance out the light brick and bold chrome frame around the door.

Opener: Merlin MS105 Commander Elite

Gliderol Madison
"The Black House" - Gliderol Tuscan Panel Door

2. Gliderol Tuscan Panel Glide

This home broke street records when it was sold in 2019 for $2.1 million and was awarded in the New Houses category at the 2019 Newcastle Architecture Awards.

A classic style, the Gliderol Tuscan Smooth Panel Glide in Colorbond Night Sky fits in perfectly with this home, nicknamed ‘The Black House’.

Opener: Merlin MS105 Commander Elite

1. Danmar Timber Panel Door

For number one, we can’t go past this gorgeous custom door by Danmar, with a matching automatic gate also installed by Macquarie Garage Doors.

It incorporates spotted gum timber with shiplap joins into a beautiful panel door.

Opener: Merlin MS105 Commander Elite
