Do you use the cheap version of UPVC plates and channels, or the higher grade aluminium plates and channels?

There are doors in the marketplace made with plastic plates and plastic channels, but these would not conform to the stringent wind testing required to meet the European standards. Roman only use top quality aluminium plates and aluminium channels tested to conform to all requirements.

How do I place an order?

Our surveyor will assess your site to ensure the opening is suitable and look at other issues, for example the electric supply. Our surveyor will demonstrate the door at your premises, its an opportunity for you to see the door opening and closing and to examine the quality for yourself. If the opening is suitable, and if you are impressed with the new door system, you can place your order with the surveyor - he/she has an order pad on the show vehicle.

Why is the price so cheap?

We are one of the UK's largest manufacturers. We do not 'buy doors in' we manufacture our own brand. Roman Garage Doors and our product ‘ultraroll’ compact8 are brand names, and are becoming nationally known as one of the best quality garage doors available. Our elite empire of fitters are employees, we never use sub-contractors or anyone who is not qualified and trained on our products. The quality of our door systems and of the installation is second to none. There are many garage door companies who 'buy products in' and then add huge profit margins. Indeed it is the case that many members of the public expect to buy this door for in excess of £2,000!! We agree it is difficult to find a door of this quality installed for such a competitive price; that's what makes Roman Garage Doors so unique.

What happens in the event of a power cut?

All Roman Garage doors are installed with a manual override. This enables you to open the door easily by hand.

Do your doors come with a guarantee?

Yes, all of our doors have a 12 month manufacturers warranty covering all parts and labour. But don't worry, our doors are extremely reliable and all components used are fully tried and tested, and of the best possible quality!!

How do you connect the power supply?

There needs to be some power inside the garage, but essentially a garage door is similar to any other appliance, it can simply be plugged into a normal three-pinned socket, or wired into a 13amp fused spur if one is available. Our surveyor will check this, and it's all included in the price.

Is it better to have the door fitted to the back of the brick piers or between the piers, and where is the roll located?

Every site is different, but both options are usually possible. That's why it's important to see our surveyor. He will look at all options and recommend the best possible configuration to suit your garage and your needs.
