Whilst there are many types of wooden garage door on the market some are far superior in quality than others therefore when making a purchasing decision we strongly recommend that you do not shop on price alone as this can prove to be a false economy.

Available to order in a wide range of standard and bespoke sizes Woodrite wooden garage door designs are available in the following timber species
Featuring a handmade construction using carefully selected timbers all boards are individually dipped prior to assembly to ensure total penetration into the end grain, grooved sections and both front and rear surfaces leading to better levels of protection against the elements and a prolonged lifespan.
Choosing Woodrite Up & Over Timber Garage Doors
Depending upon your requirements Woodrite up & over garage doors are available in a choice of 2 build types. Detailed below are the differences between the 2 options therefore please read this information to ensure you choose the right system to suit your garage opening, tastes and budget.
Timber garage doors manufactured in this way feature a steel or aluminium sub frame onto which the wood panel is mounted as this gives the door additional strength and rigidity without the need for additional timber braces.
To create a seamless appearance the timber cloaks the sub frame so that it is not visible from the outside. This is something Woodrite refer to a “edge to edge timber” and is a neat finishing detail that is unique to them. In terms of panel designs all the options within the Somerset, Buckingham and Monmouth range are only available in the panel built option. In comparison the Warwick and Thetford range has the option of panel built and solid built styles.
For most door sizes this style of construction does not require the panel to have a sub frame. Thanks to the benefit of traditional construction techniques the door has adequate strength to support its own weight and is the preferred choice where the aesthetics inside the garage are of equal importance to the outside appearance.
Within this range of doors the Balmoral and York designs are only available as solid built whilst the Warwick and Thetford range has the option of solid or panel built designs.
Choice of Lifting Gear
To ensure smooth operation, reliability and performance Woodrite up and over wooden garage doors are available in a choice Masta and Super Chassis lifting gear.
