Colour Tec Expands Rapidly in The Garage Door Sector

Colour Tec – the Yorkshire-based firm that specialises in colouring and cosmetic repair – is reporting a major increase in sales within the garage door sector, particularly through firms looking for door painting.

Colour Tec has been trading since 2008 and started life as a man in a van offering an onsite cosmetic repair service to the trade and public. The company is now well established and offers cosmetic repairs and on-site colour spraying for windows, doors, garage doors and aluminium.

Colour Tec also offers a factory-based spraying service, where products are taken to its facility in Horbury. There, a team spray paints products using a specialist, high quality paint. The painted door is then either delivered back to the customer’s premises, or straight to site.

And it is this service that is proving such a hit with garage door manufacturers and installers, with major companies such as JD (UK) Ltd amongst Colour Tec’s customers.

One of these clients - Steve Pierce, Managing Director at ABi Doors Ltd – says this about working with Colour Tec:

“We choose the people we work with very carefully. Our relationship with Colour Tec has developed over a number of years and that is testament to their commitment to professionalism and level of customer service.

“They are always happy and ready to provide advice, and their knowledge and experience has been invaluable in supporting our own business growth. Their attention to detail allows us to provide our own customers with bespoke options whilst maintaining the highest standards of quality.”

Dean Hurst – Colour Tec’s owner – confirms that more trade than ever is coming from the garage door sector: 

“We are getting an ever-increasing amount of trade from installers and manufacturers, as word is getting around that we provide a quality service with quick turnaround times – typically around a week.

“We agree on an exact turnaround time prior to the job commencing, so that required timescales are met,” he explains.

“Installers in particular benefit from this, as when a client wants a particular colour, they can quickly get hold of a white ‘off the page’ door direct from a manufacturer, then send it to us to get painted.

“This cuts down on time massively – as you could wait six weeks for a coloured door. And there’s absolutely no compromise on quality, as the paint and materials we use are as good, if not better, than the manufacturer would use to paint the product.”

 The paint used by Colour Tec is supplied by AVKO, a Swiss company that has been in the business of colour coating for over 30 years.

The paint is made with the best quality binder and pigment. It has been rigorously tested and boasts long-lasting coverage - making it ideal for most installations.

It is a Car high-quality product for external and internal use and has been 10000 hr UV tested – after which most colours were still 4-5 on the grey scale.

Colour Tec follows a two-coat application process, before air-drying each door. Should further coats be necessary, this is done wet-on-wet, so paint is touch dry very quickly and no baking of the product is needed. 

The duration between coats is minimal, which improves turnaround time and factory workflow.

In total, Colour Tec offers a database of over 15,000 colours from the standard RAL / BS colours to the Farrow and Ball and Dulux ranges, plus a colour matching service.

And any door painted by Colour Tec comes with a ten-year guarantee, so quality is assured. Also, the firm offers colour fit trims - so every door that is painted by the firm can be supplied with matching trims.
