Upgrade your home’s kerb appeal and add character to your garage space with beautiful, low-maintenance wood effect GRP garage doors made from durable GRP. Our doors capture the look and feel of natural wood with the unparalleled durability and longevity of glass reinforced plastic.

What is GRP?

GRP stands for glass-reinforced plastic. It’s a high-tech composite material made by infusing fine strands of glass within a tough plastic resin. The glass boosts the impact resistance, while the resin provides colour, sheen and weatherproofing.

Realistic Wood Finishes

Our wood look garage doors are crafted to capture the elegance and beauty of natural wood types like oak, cherry, cedar and mahogany. High-definition plank detailing and textured woodgrain patterns replicate the look found in real wood for a finish that looks authentic and natural. Special finishes add realistic weathering effects, natural colour variations, wood knots and grains. You’ll enjoy the visual warmth and character of real wood doors combined with the unmatched durability of GRP composite materials.

RAL Colour Garage Doors

There are plenty of colours to choose from too, to suit your personal taste or to match the style of your property. We can match your timber effect garage door to any RAL or BS (British Standard) colour of your choice.

Benefits of Wood Effect GRP Garage Doors

While wooden doors are aesthetically pleasing, GRP does offer several advantages over natural wood. It won’t warp, crack or rot from exposure to moisture and temperature fluctuations like real wood can if it’s not well cared for.

  • Easy to maintain: The colour and wood grain patterns are infused throughout the thickness of the GRP material, which allows these doors to maintain their original appearance despite years of use and exposure to the elements.
  • Lightweight but durable: GRP is lightweight and easy to open and close yet has incredible impact resistance and durability. So, with the elegant look and feel of real wood, GRP provides essentially maintenance-free garage doors that will last for many years to come.
  • Environmentally friendly: The glass-reinforced plastic contains gentle compounds derived from naturally occurring materials, and often incorporates recycled fillers and fibres too. With no toxic chemicals or harmful by-products, GRP is an eco-conscious composite building material. Our manufacturing process aims to minimise waste and energy consumption as well.
  • Heightened security: GRP has an unmatched strength-to-weight ratio compared to natural wood. The rigid, impact-resistant GRP doors will stand up to attempts at forced entry or vandalism, protecting your garage contents from theft.

FAQs

  • What are the benefits of a wood effect GRP garage door?

    Timber effect doors provide the authentic visual appeal of real wood but with the durability, weather-resistance and low maintenance of glass reinforced plastic. They’re a great way of achieving a genuine wood look without the maintenance required for real wooden doors.

  • How realistic is the wood effect on GRP garage doors?

    Wood effect doors use high definition prints that accurately replicate wood grain patterns and textures for a very realistic appearance.

  • Are wood effect garage doors expensive?

    Wood effect doors are competitively priced. They provide a mid-range option that is less expensive than wood but more than basic steel doors.

  • Does a wood effect door require a lot of maintenance?

    Wood effect GRP doors require very little maintenance since the glass reinforced plastic skin resists moisture, scratches and dents more effectively than real wood.
