Had my new 77 Roller Door fitted this week and am well impressed with it. Andy came out originally to measure up and demonstrate working models set up in his company van and the quality of them. He was excellent and not pushy in trying to get a sale and his price was very competitive. When the team arrived to fit the door ( On Time) they were very professional polite and helpful and they take your old door away with them. Would have no problem recommending Fortress Doors Colchester at anytime. Well done Andy and the team for an excellent job from start to finish.

So pleased we went with Fortress Doors, would have no reservations recommending Andy and his team. From first contact to installation was seemless, garage door looks great just what we wanted. If thinking about going electric just do it 👍

Andy came to see us and discussed our options. Incredibly helpful and came back several times to be sure as we had a slightly more difficult task than most. Measurements were taken and then double checked and I’m happy to say that an incredible job was done by the guys on the day. My garage has so much space now and is more usable than ever. I’m really glad we chose Fortress Doors. Update – I’ve now added a Somfy hub to my home network which allows me to control my garage door using my Google Smart speakers. They have a great feature requiring a pin code so that people can’t just shout in your window to a speaker and open the garage. Can’t recommend enough! Thanks to Andy and the guys!

We received a brilliant service from Fortress Doors from the very well demonstrated initial visit through to the installation and beyond. The installation was very tidy, on time and hassle free. We did have an issue a few weeks after installation as the door got stuck in open position but they came over the very next day to fix the problem. We had closed the door manually so it wasn’t left open overnight. Always very helpful with replacement remote batteries and communications etc. Thank you for a lovely door!

My second reviews for Fortress Doors. Andy and his team expertly installed my door last year, sadly it developed a minor fault. I contacted Andy and he replied straight away to ensure me it would be sorted and indeed it was and very quickly. If you are looking for a new door and are thinking about which company to use then look no further. Fortress Doors are first class. Thank you Andy

Their Salesman, Andy, was very pleasant and informative. He was not at all pushy but answered all the questions my partner raised. Based upon our garage door requirements he suggested various products that would be suitable. Decision made we placed our order and he said installation would proceed in 4 weeks time once the door had been made to our specifications. Our door was installed 4 weeks later by an excellent team of friendly fitters and instruction given on its operation. We are delighted with our purchase and thoroughly recommend this company

Cannot praise Fortress Doors enough. A highly professional service. The new garage door was for my elderly mum and she was treated with the utmost respect by Andy and she is delighted with the new garage door. Highly recommend.

Andy and the lads turned up today in the cold and fitted our new garage door. First class job and a first class bunch. Even Margaret the pooch was enthusiastic all afternoon. Thanks again lads. Top job 👍

We cannot rate Andy and his team at Fortress highly enough: we had a roller door fitted in the summer….a first class service! However we had a problem on a Saturday evening. We contacted Andy that evening and he came out to us first thing on Sunday morning (in the cold and rain too!). The roller had come off some clips…we suspect because our builders had closed the door and there was an obstruction. Andy and his team fixed it within 10 minutes. Thanks so much for coming out and fixing it for us. I would not hesitate to recommend Fortress for their great after sales service!

I had an Essati garage door which had been on Rogue traders and was having problems with it. Fortress doors were the ONLY people who would come out to it. I felt happy with the gentleman who arrived. He was concise, leavel headed and subsequently I decided to replace the door as I have health issues. The door was ordered and true to his word he contacted me the week he promised to. The people arrived to fit the door and were very professional. Very tidy and very organised. I would not hesitate to recommend these people. I am not in the habit of leaving reviews but felt it deserved the write up.

You’re in safe hands with Andy and his team. I had to get my door fitted to a tight schedule and Andy pulled it out of the bag. The door works brilliantly for the 6 months it’s been fitted without any major issues. It’s needed to be adjusted since install, but Andy was on site a couple of hours after calling and sorted it out. Customer service as it should be. The quote I received for my 3.5m wide door was mid-range for the enquiries I made with other companies, however the great feedback and Andy’s personality won me over and I’m pleased to say I feel I’ve still made the right choice. 5* from me 👍

Called Andy as I had a fault with my Somfy door that a previous company fitted poorly. He came out promptly and rectified issues to prevent future failures. Would highly recommend 👍🏻

Love our new garage door! Thank you Fortress. Excellent service throughout , Andy took plenty of time showing us the different options and kept us up-to-date once we placed the order. It only took two lovely guys just over a couple of hours to transform our garage and we couldn’t be happier with it.

Excellent service from start to finish. Andy knows his stuff and talked us through the pros and cons of a number of options. It arrived exactly when Andy said it would. It was installed today by Steve and Head fitter Callum and it looks great and gives us the security we need. After installation Callum went through how to use and care for the door. We’re really happy and 100% recommend Fortress Doors.

Extremely happy with our new door. Right from the get-go we knew Andy was extremely knowledgeable. Took us through the options and it was clear that he was passionate about providing the best possible product/service. He demonstrated each door, and we decided on the best one for our needs, with no pressure at all. We also changed our mind regarding the colour a few weeks from installation – accommodating this was no issue at all. Would have no problem recommending these guys.

I’m not a person that normally writes reviews, but on this ocation I felt I had to. From the time Andy call to survey the garage door replacement to a very resent problem we unfortunately experienced with our door. Andy listened understood and promptly carried out the repair. Nothing was to much trouble so I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and your team.

Update review I needed to leave a message with Andy the other morning about my Fortress garage fitted about 9 months ago. He phoned me straight back and was over that same afternoon with his colleague to address this under guarantee and door is operating fine again. I continue to be impressed with the service and back up provided

Fantastic service from start to finish, had 4 quotes in total, first 3 companies quoted within a couple of minutes but gave no real understanding of what the doors were that I would be getting. Andy gave me a full demonstration and I knew exactly what I was getting when the job was completed. Can’t fault them, great to deal with, including Callum and Steve who fitted them (and cleaned up including taking the old doors away). Worth mentioning they were not the cheapest I had been quoted, but I believe they were the best value for the doors provided. Would recommend happily.

Just had a single roller door in Chartwell Green fitted. Really happy with it. Dealing with Andy was problem-free and he was very efficient. Our old door was an electric up and over but I wanted to gift the mechanism from the old door: Andy and his team carefully removed the old mechanism for me too. Would highly recommend them!

Andy and his team did a fantastic job of widening our garage door and fitting an electric one. All were friendly, polite, helpful, on time and tidy. We had one issue with a warning light coming on and Andy was out to reset this first thing the next day. Highly recommend!

Andy and his team were professional from the sales process through to the installation. Andy’s van is fitted with demo roller curtains so you can easily see and feel the quality of the product. Ordering to fitting only took about 4 weeks. The fitters, Michael and Callum, were professional and polite at all times, did a great job, and tidied up after completion. We’re really pleased with the service and the door and would not hesitate to recommend Andy and his team at Fortress Doors.
