This garage space needed to be converted to create a multifunctional workspace. The key requirements of this space was to allow privacy for the majority of the door while also allowing airflow. By using mixed Plexiglass options this allowed privacy to the lower section while allowing more natural light to flow through the top half of the door. Openable windows were then inserted to allow airflow without the need for opening the garage door and therefore losing privacy. A few design options were considered so we created scale drawings to allow our client to visualise the door prior to acceptance. 

The homeowner for this project came to us with a unique requirement, as he aimed to create security for his carport while still maintaining the light and visibility of the property. He was also looking to sell his property within the year, and wanted to update the exterior of the property to a more modern look to increase the sale value. We worked with him to find a design that complimented the existing aesthetic of the property, and put together an automation solution for both pedestrian access and vehicle.

”I engaged Prestige Doors & Gates to help with my new build. I was dealing with many subcontractors over the project but Prestige were able to help cut this down. They not only manufactured my driveway gate, they also installed it alongside a few pedestrian gates, a handrail, and an awning. Finally, they also took care of all our automation needs so the gate was ready to use once they finished on site. It helped to take out the hassle knowing I had one contact for all these features around my property.” – Carl

We were enlisted to help create a solution for this property, where the garage was constructed underground, meaning there were no windows, and a total lack of natural light. We worked with the Project Manager to design a plexiglass door in ‘Snow’ that allows natural light from the street to enter the property, while still providing privacy for the homeowners.

This garage door was another project with an integrative process, as we worked together with the builders to optimise their design concepts. The builders loved the carport concept of laser-cut design, however struggled with the lack of privacy and full enclosure. While the construction company brought their own laser designs, we worked with them to create a plexiglass base to the door, which allowed the design to show through but still provided protection and privacy to the contents of the garage

Our client came to us with an old timber door that hadn’t been maintained, and was starting to crack and detach from the frame. She wanted to keep the same aesthetic of the previous door, but was worried that if they didn’t make time to re-stain the timber that they’d have to replace the door again in a few years.

We decided to create a TG&V style door made out of Aluminium that is indifferentiable from a painted timber TG&V. The Aluminium is perfectly suited to the salty air of New Zealand, and won’t require any maintenance on the panels aside from standard soap and water to clean the surface and retain the ‘brand new’ feel.

"Prestige has been our preferred option for garage doors for a number of years now as they are sturdy and strong. We were sick of flimsy steel doors that get dinged all the time and don't align with the level of quality we aim to deliver our customers. The service we get from them is on point, they're always on time and they turn the quotes around in 1 day, always with additional options for us to consider. We're big fans of the Altec doors as well as the flush mount Cedar or Abodo. At the end of the day, you pay for what you get and we've never looked back".

We are very pleased with our new garage door. The installers were very good, and were very enthusiastic about the finished result, and showed pride in their work. Thank you.

Thanks to Gabi and Ben at Prestige Garage Doors for an amazing job on our garage door replacement!! We wanted something a bit different and their design team created exactly what we had in mind. Great attention to detail and the communication throughout was awesome. We couldn't be more pleased!

I rung the guys at Prestige to help with conversion of an old garage with two tilt doors to a new well-secured door. I built the framework for the door on day 1 and they fitted the door on day 2. I am in the Aluminum business and absolutely delighted with the final design, finished product and install team who completed the project effortlessly.

Prestige had a number of options for me to secure my garage being a gate or garage door. I decided to fully enclose my carport and fit a sectional garage door painted the same colour as my house. After some minor building, electrical and door installation work I have future-proofed my old garage which looks like it has always been there and ties in nicely with the style of my house

Hi just wanted to drop a note to say BIG thanks to you guys for our new gate. You made the process really easy, and the quality of the workmanship is superb. We are really happy!

We engaged Prestige to offer a solution to our problem of faded and rotting cedar garage doors. We talked about a range of materials and colours but finally settled on a special Dulux Mannex Powdercoat finish that is textured, low-maintenance and will look good for years and years. They completed the job in a day, removed all the old doors and now the new doors like they've always been there.

Dear Prestige - we are writing about the replacement door you arranged for our rental property while we were away overseas. Our tenant was very impressed with the two young guys that carried out the install of the large, damaged garage door in less than half a day. She was also very happy that we decided to go with the insulation as this no makes operation of the door very quiet.
