Service and Repairs

As well as supplying and fitting garage doors, at John Briars Garage Doors we carry out repair and maintenance work, including insurance work, to very high standards. We have a large number of garage door spares and accessories available from stock, and can provide an estimate of repair costs over the phone in most instances.

If you need to contact us regarding a repair to a damaged or faulty garage door, please refer to the following check list, and try to find as much of the information as possible before you call:

  • The make of the door, which can usually be found on the handle, or on a label on the inside of the door. The most popular makes are Henderson, Garador (including Westland Garador), Cardale, Wessex, Marley and rarely, Hormann, SWS Seceuroglide and Seip.
  • The age of the door. If you know the approximate age of the door, that will help us get the correct part, first time.
  • The symptoms. Is the door jamming, juddering, not closing correctly?
  • Location of the spring. The spring mechanism on a manual door is usually above or beside the door.

Providing us with these four pieces of information will help us to provide a quote over the phone, and also inform you if we have the parts required in stock.


All repairs and services are guaranteed for 6 months from the date the repair and/or service is carried out. For further details please contact us.
