Door opens way to successful design


Stylish garage doorNew homeowner John Gallagher and his wife Linda have created a stylish, coordinated design using a B&D Panelift Grange door and CAD 4 Automatic opener at their new home in St Clair, New South Wales.

The new home combines the design of a traditional family home with the style and luxury of a heritage home.

“We wanted a garage door that would become a feature of the home and complement the design we had in mind – and it was vital that it was of a high quality and at an affordable price,” said John Gallagher.

“We knew that with a B&D garage door, there would never be any worries about warranties and maintenance in the long term, and we knew they would offer us exactly what we wanted.”

The B&D Panelift Grange door is custom-made to exact size requirements and can be installed to completely clear the opening, allowing maximum drive-in clearance for a boat, caravan or four wheel drive vehicle.

One of the newest and most popular doors on the market, the B&D Panelift sectional overhead door is also one of the most technologically advanced doors available.

When looking for a garage door for their new home, the Gallaghers examined a range of garage door options before selecting a B&D Panelift Grange door.
“The garage door is the first thing you see, which meant the design and colour of the door was very important to us because it had to align with the design of the rest of the house,” Mr Gallagher said.

The couple co-ordinated the soft cream colour of the house with the guttering, fascia and most importantly the B&D Panelift Grange door.

The design possibilities opened up by the Panelift Grange design also allowed Mr Gallagher to install designer windows in the garage to match the dramatic leadlight windows of the house.

This complemented the stylish landscaping of the small garden, which features an ornamental water fountain.

Mr Gallagher had previously arranged to have B&D Doors installed in other homes and was familiar with their potential.

“I knew they offered me a range of design possibilities and a stylish, well-thought-out door,” he said.
