Garage door repairs and replacements

Hi my Name is Duncan Pereira. I trained as a carpenter and continued my building experience with my father. Over 13 years ago my family started specializing in Garage doors. I work along with my brother Alex and between us there isn't much we don't know about it. We supply and fit all different types inc 'up and over', 'sectional', 'side hinged' and 'roller doors', manual or electrically operated. The majority of these doors come with a 10 year guarantee. We can also repair most makes of door, some up to 30 years old. I live in Forest hill, just between Lordship Lane and Forest hill road. My friend Rory, a window cleaner suggested i leave a thread on here. I can supply many references and a gallery of local work if desired. I look forward to hearing from you. 07792746543
We now also offer Garage Door alarms.
Duncan repaired our garage door really well. We rang Duncan in the evening, and he was round at ours the next day. Fixed it (not spares required) on the spot and made some alterations to prevent it breaking again - went beyond what he needed to do. I would thoroughy recommend his work.

Hi, Just wanted to add that I'm a very satisifed customer of Duncan and Alex (Thames Garage Door Repairs). We unfortunately had a break in to our garage, I called Alex via this forum - his brother came round almost immediately, had a look and then they both came round the following week and it's all done. It was a very pleasant, straight forward process (they also fitted a brenton bolt for extra security) - reasonably priced and as I said a couple of very nice people. I would highly recommend them for garage door repairs.

Hi,

I'd also like to recommend Duncan and Alex (Thames Garage Door Repairs). When our ancient garage door broke, they came the next day to assess the damage, and promptly repaired it straight away for a very reasonable rate and a cup of tea! The garage door now works better than it did before - very refreshing when all the other garage door companies were suggesting a complete replacement at a much higher cost.
I'd also like to put a good word in for Duncan and Alex.
Duncan has been round a couple of times previously to fix my garage door which often needed adjusting because of some slip in the land. I've had other door maintenance guys come round before very happy to do a 5min tweak and take the callout fee! Nothing wrong with that I suppose but Duncan seemed keen to go the extra mile. He suggested that it would need a lot less maintenance if he and Alex were to re-hang the door to a different part of the building's frame, essentially fixing the recurring problem and probably doing themselves out of a number of repeat maintenance visits! It's been at least a couple of months since they did the job and it's holding up very nicely. It took them a couple of hours and was about the same as 2 callout fees. Duncan and Alex were friendly and professional from start to finish, big recommendation if you need any garage door work done.
Just as an update..We repair all types of Garage Door problems. Broken Wires and Wheels, Loss of tension, Broken handles, Rotten Wooden Frames, Faulty Electric Openers ETC. There is no charge for coming to look. And as we carry a large supply of parts with us, hopefully we can repair it there and then after agreeing the cost. We also fit new doors, that come with 10 year warranties from £500. Feel free to give me a call. Duncan. 07792746543
Also want to recommend Duncan and Alex who replaced my garage door. Nothing seemed a problem, they didn’t complain when they arrived to fit the door and the opening had changed due to some building work, they just got on with it and resolved the problem and the finish is excellent. They were professional and efficient, and as this recommendation is well overdue, I can report the door has been working well for many many months now.
Following the recommendations here on EDF I used Alex and Duncan to have 6 garage doors with rotten wooden frames replaced with metal framed doors. They were as responsive and helpful as other people here have described and they did an excellent job. I'll attach a photo if the system lets me!
I am happy to recommend Alex and Duncan who continue to impress with their friendly and knowledgeable approach. They have repaired my garage door and it is now working smoothly. They also made sensible, and not too costly, suggestions for further repairs which were very successful. They worked efficiently, leaving the area clean and tidy, taking all rubbish away. I am delighted with the outcome and very glad I looked on this forum when searching for a company I could trust.

Hi - I'd also like to recommend Duncan. My garage door was damaged after an attempted break-in, and after finding his number on this forum thread, I called Duncan who came and assessed the damage. He turned up quickly, at the time we'd arranged, assessed the problem realistically, and then fixed it cheaply and efficiently, and was friendly throughout.
Duncan is part of a Family business that have been established for 20 years, my experience with them has been absolutely fantastic, because they are a family run business they really care about their clients and the level of service they provide, from the initial point of contact there was clear communication and he did everything he possibly could do to help me in my situation and I really did appreciate this. The price was more than reasonable and I felt very confident in Duncan's ability. 10/10 and I would highly recommend him to anyone! If you need something doing he is definitely the man to call!
My garage door was in a dreadful state but Duncan (Thames Garage Doors) assured me it could be repaired. He turned up on time, inspected the door, gave me a price and repaired it straight away. The door wasn't straightforward as it hadn't been installed properly but he corrected this, without charging extra, and it now opens and closes more smoothly than when it was new! Duncan is very knowledgeable, polite and efficient and the price was so reasonable I found myself asking if it was enough - a first for me!
I've just used Thames Garage Doors to replace a rotten wood side access door with a metal one. They did a very good job for us. Reasonable price and v nice to deal with.
Duncan has just come to the rescue AGAIN!! Our garage door was jammed shut, I text Duncan last night and he text back within 5 mins!! And was with us at 8.30am this morning!! So professional, reliable, affordable and knowledgeable!!! Highly recommend Duncan!! Here is is number 07792746543
