The Tilt Door Design Process
Many of our past clients have preferred to match their door’s flush with their building’s façade so that when the door is in a closed position, it blends in with its surroundings. This is achieved by installing a frame only, which is designed to pair with the nominated cladding. Then, the builder or homeowner will clad the door and the wall surrounding it to achieve a beautiful, seamless look. This is a popular option for tilt garage doors in Melbourne’s residential areas.
We are able to apply a range of claddings to your door, including Colorbond sheeting as a standard option, or western red cedar wood as a premium design option. We can even manufacture specialised panel lift tilt doors equipped with a counterweight to balance heavy cladding.
We have a colour chart available to help you perfectly match your new garage door colour to the colour of your home.
