As the title, looking to replace my standard up and over garage door with an electric ‘cartridge’
roller door. Any leads for local Companies based upon experiences. Thank you.
I could google but want to have more assurance of quality.

I'm happy to endorse Gavin from Absolute Gate & Door Services (01603742851, sales@absolute-norwich.co.uk, www.absolute-norwich.co.uk)

He installed 2 seceuroGlide roller garage doors for me a couple of years back (www.sws.co.uk/homeowners/roller-garage-doors).

I had one fitted in November by Foremost Garage doors in Ipswich

https://www.foremostgaragedoors.co.uk/

Andy is the guy doing the survey, easy to talk to and no hard sell, 5 year guarantee on the Securoglide, but he will offer you all the options you want.

The guys turned up on time, very professional outfit and cleaned up properly. I had a follow up call from the Office a couple of days later as well, so all in all pretty impressed.

Little late to the party but Cliff Hinchley at Newmarket Garage Doors - http://www.newmarketgaragedoors.co.uk/

Have recommended him to half a dozen people and they have all installed and had no problems.

He installed three Hormann doors for me in 2015 and they have not so much as squeaked once. Really good guy.

These guys aren’t local but I just used Crocodile. They are based in Huddersfield but no dramas.
Very high quality product and excellent install service.
I had insulated Aluminium roller doors fully automated with decent gear, 6mx3m and 4mx3m.

Thanks again guys for the leads. I have put the project on hold for now, our lad has decided to use my garage to park one of his TVR. In return I have use of it whenever!
I was going to install a roll up garage door and gain extra height which would allow me to park my.Bedford CA campervan in the garage.

As I understand it then, your selfish son is stopping you modifying your garage to suit your current vehicle and all he is offering in return is free use of his TVR whenever you please! Dish the dirt then and tell us which model it is and how long before your right foot tests the insurance companies worth. Cannot say that I have seen any TVR's around town recently, at one time there were more than you could shake a stick at, there is a chap who works at the old barracks who uses a Griffith as his daily.

Our lad is far from selfish, the opposite tbh.
He has his TVR cerbeby’ in our garage, a TVR 280i ftc in his carcoon, a BMW V8 and BMW 525
daily driver. A Suzuki superbike in his conservatory!
Let me have a go on each one when I fancy it.
I’m going to sell my camper now as I have changed my mind and will stick with my vintage caravan.

edit to add, lad hasn’t been driving his TVR lately owing to serious illness over past six months

You do realise this was very tongue in cheek, sorry to hear that he has not been well hopefully the coming Spring will rejuvenate him and allow him to enjoy his collection.
PS. The attraction of the van did not last long!

Sorry, I’m a thick o and mis-read. I feel a bit bad about my response now. But anyway thanks for his get well soon message. He suffered a pulmonary embolism which I’m told is a blood clot on the lung, that was topped up with pneumonia for good measure. 38 year old with exemplary medical history and then bang, his hit with that. Make everyday count.

As for the Bedford camper, just to cramped for me, it’s brilliant fun to drive though. Back to a vintage caravan, just came across the 1924 ‘Angela’ which will be tourinvthe steam rallies this season.

Do not fret, I am always being told that my sense of humour is obscure, no offence taken.
