Garages built during 6-7 decades of the last century became too small for nowadays cars. Consequently, they lost their primary purpose. Cars are left on the driveways and garages become a storage place of unnecessary stuff.
As real estate prices skyrocketed, every inch of the building became an asset. And the house owners turned their attention to garage space – why not turn almost derelict space into something functional and useful.
Timber garage doors after 60 years of service are in poor condition, begging for replacement. But there is one issue- usually houses are in conservation areas. So, you can change the material but must keep the design of the door.
‘Traditional’ is the most popular side-hinged garage door design from that period. Therefore, Ryterna developed a new garage door model several years ago replicating the original design. The insulated side-hinged door perfectly matched the requirements. Double glazing, sandwich-type door panels and mitred frame ensure perfect sealing and thermal insulation. Modern materials guarantee long service life and low maintenance. Many extra options allow customising the garage door to match the architectural setting and purpose.
As the demand was high, our trade partners grabbed the possibility of offering complete garage space conversion along with door replacement.
Homeowners are happy having cosy hobby spaces, dressing or utility rooms, workshops, and gyms instead of shabby garages.
There are several pictures illustrating garage conversions done by A Wright Improvement Company.
