Top 3 Tips to Avoid Cowboy Builders

Posted on

Embarking on a home improvement project can be daunting, especially if it will require some form of building or construction work. Your home will be disrupted for some time and if the company you choose doesn’t work efficiently, then the disruption can be far more significant than you had expected.

Unfortunately, if you find yourself in the hands of a cowboy builder, there can be considerably worse consequences than disruption. There are countless stories of homes left in chaos at the hands of rogue traders and if you want your project completed on time and to a high standard, it’s essential that you do what you can to a avoid cowboys:

1.    Check accreditations

If you’re ever unsure about a company, check their accreditations. Accreditations are established to check the standard of a company’s work and their practices but be sure to research what an accreditation actually means.

There are numerous accreditations that a company may have but can refer to their environmental policies or health and safety checks, not just the quality of their work.

2.  Testimonials

Seeing what previous customers have to say about a company is one of the best ways to determine their credibility. A company can brag about their service themselves but you’ll get a better idea of what a company is ACTUALLY like through customer reviews.

3.    Don’t be afraid to ask questions

A reputable company will always be willing to listen to your questions and offer valuable and honest answers in response. If the company or person you’re speaking to avoids the questions or gives answers that you know to be false you should be suspicious.

Home Security: How Important Is Your Garage Door?

Posted on

As a homeowner you’re likely to be aware that during the winter months your home is much more vulnerable to burglary; in fact, the risk of being a victim of burglary rises by 63% at this time of year. It’s an unfortunate situation in which the dark and long nights give thieves the perfect opportunity to get their hands on the Christmas presents you’ve worked so hard to buy.

Home security is essential to protect your home, your family and your possessions against criminal activity. Here at Eastern Garage Doors we specialise in garage doors in Huntingdon and we urge homeowners to take steps to improve security before it is too late. Many of us don’t realise, however, how important our garage door is as part of our security.

Secure All Entry Points

You wouldn’t go to bed without locking your windows or doors and if your front door was broken, in the interests of security, you’d get it fixed immediately so why don’t we think of our garage door in the same way?

If your garage door is left unsecured or broken, this presents a criminal with an easy point of entry to your home. It’s essential that you keep your garage door locked and secure throughout the day and night.

Your Garage Door Could Be Attracting Attention

A criminal will always look for a vulnerable home that will be easy to enter without being detected and your garage door could be attracting criminals for this very reason. A dilapidated or broken garage door will make your home appear vulnerable and could, therefore, be seen as an easy target for criminals.

To reduce the risk of burglary, repair or replace your garage door; here at Eastern Garage Doors we have a range of great garage doors at affordable prices. It’s never been easier to replace your garage door and improve your home security.

Get the Space You Need With Garage Door Widening

Posted on

When it comes to our garages, the majority of us will never use the space for its intended purpose; what do you use your garage for? So many of us use our garages for storing old furniture and gardening equipment but why don’t we use it for storing our cars? Here at Eastern Garage Doors we specialise in garage doors in Huntingdon, Cambridge and Peterborough and if you’re thinking about improving your garage, we have the experience and knowledge that you need.

Use Your Garage to Store Your Car Again

The most common reason that we don’t use our garages to store our cars is that our vehicles simply won’t fit in them! Houses that were built decades ago were, of course, designed to house the average car size at the time; however, the size of our cars has now increased dramatically. Thousands of us are driving large 4×4 and family carriers that just won’t fit into our garages; the increased width of the vehicle and the wing mirrors are not suitable for such narrow garages.

Experienced in Garage Widening

Luckily, here at Eastern Garage Doors we are experts in garage widening that can solve this problem and allow you to store your car away from unwanted criminal attention and the harsh elements. Our friendly and knowledgeable team have years of experience in widening garages as well as converting a two door garage into one; if your garage door is too small for you use, there’s no need to put up with it!

Here at Eastern Garage Doors we can also help if you’re looking for a new garage door to improve the appearance of your home or to replace a broken door. We have a variety of quality doors from a range of well-known manufacturers including:

•    SWS
•    Gliderol
•    Alluguard
•    Novoferm
•    Wessex
•    Woodrite

Is Your Garage Door Affecting The Value Of Your Home?

Posted on

The current economic climate, although it is now improving, has had a dramatic effect on the price of houses across the country and valuations have fluctuated significantly in the recent past. It can be difficult, therefore, to know exactly how much your home is worth and if you’re looking to move home in the near or distant future, you should be doing all you can to improve the value of your house.

Here at Eastern Garage Doors we understand that it can be difficult to know what aspects of your home are directly affecting its value but could it be your garage door that is having a negative influence on your valuation?

We specialise in garage doors in Huntingdon and surrounding areas at Eastern Garage Doors and can tell you with certainty that if your garage door is old and dilapidated then it could be having a significant impact on a variety of areas that you perhaps wouldn’t expect.

Security

Your garage door is vital to the security of your home and can actually attract unwanted attention if it appears weak. A criminal will search for a vulnerable home that is easy to enter undetected and an old garage door makes the perfect entry point.

Energy Efficiency

Now, more than ever, it is a top priority for a house to be energy efficient to reduce our impact on the environment and to reduce household bills. Unfortunately, your garage door could be costing you a fortune in energy bills as substandard doors are a prominent cause of heat loss.

Appearance

The aesthetics of both the interior and exterior of your home plays a vital role in the valuation and your garage door, in turn, has a large influence on your home looks. A tatty garage door can make the entire exterior to look unkempt and will often put off potential buyers.

If you’re looking to improve the value of your home, replacing your garage door could be the ideal solution. Why not browse our site or contact us directly for more information?
