Found on trust a trader webpage. Absolutely fabulous. Old garage door removed ( original door probably from the 1960’s, so very heavy, with original mechanisms and difficult to remove) and new garage door fitted. Work completed by 2 very friendly fitters, obviously expert in their field. Highly recommended to anyone considering a new garage door. Smooth transaction from start to finish. Thank you!

I decided to go with Ace for my roller electric garage door because from the first call Darren gave me a price over the phone and stuck to it. Arrived when he said he would and all the mess was taken away. It's been installed a couple of months now and not had any issues so I would happily recommend him.

I would very much recommend this company. I live in Edinburgh and the door was being fitted in Stevenage. He was very quick to respond to my enquiry. We had a chat, he went out to fit, gave me a quote and it was fitted within 3 days. My daughter is very pleased, he turned up at the time he said and did a very good job. Thanks Darren, I'm delighted. I wish you well in your business.

Quality garage doors to increase curb appeal

What exactly is curb appeal? Well, curb appeal means exactly what it says, it's the appeal that your property conveys to passers buy, but particularly prosective buyers. Si in short, it is how good your home looks from the outside.

While most homeowners have pride of ownership and want their homes to look their best, curb appeal really has no monetary value unless you happen to be selling your house. Then you would be amazed at how important it can become.

Many homeowners will go out of their way, and frequently over budget, to keep their homes looking fantastic, including improvements to the landscape, keeping windows clean, making the entranceway look more inviting.

In addition to the monetary value that curb appeal can offer, there is always the pride aspect. Peaple like nice things, nice houses, nice clipped lawns and flower beds, but there is always one thing that seems to miss out, the garage doors!

Why are garage doors so important?

Let's be honest, any potential buyer will not want to live in your garage, so why would they care if the garage doors are not the best in the world? Well, think of the guy wearing the killer designer suit, with the perfectly trimmed hair and beard and the expensive manicure, you look down and his shoes are scuffed and dirty and suddenly the entire ensemble is ruined. It is exactly the same with a home.

You can have a gorgeous home, with a gorgeous garden, but if the garage doors look like they are ready to fall off their hinges, or just don't go with the rest of the property, the curb appeal will take a massive nosedive.

The term curb appeal was coined back in the day when home buyers literally drove around to look at homes. So the look of a home from the street, where the buyers would be in their cars, became the first hurdle to getting buyers interested in a home. Very often, buyers would not even get out of the car if they didn't like the look of the home from the car.

These days curb appeal is even more important. With the increase of online shopping for a home, you don't even have the luxury of presenting your house in person. People look at the photos on the estate agents website and on Google Streetview. If your garage doors are grim, they will be scuppering the chances of any prospective buyers coming round to take a closer look in person.

Garage doors can make or break a property

As a garage door can account for a pretty large portion of your homes appearance; possibly up to 35% of the visible area of your home from the street, it follows that every part of your property should look good, even the garage doors.

Yet despite that fact, very few people seem to worry about the state of their garage doors.

Fortunately this tide is turning. More and more properties are now matching garage doors with the entrance door to the house itself. This is a fantastic way of increasing the curb appeal of your property.

Home renovation cost versus return

Homeowners will think nothing of getting the landscapers in to sort the garden out. They will be more than happy to pay a good sum of money to have the house painted throughout and that old creaky and splintered banister replaced, but when it comes to the grotty looking garage doors, well, that can wait for another day!

A word of warning though, estate agents estimate that about forty percent of the highest return on investment when it comes to home renovation, is when it is done to the house exterior. In fact, homeowners could expect to get back as much as eighty five percent of their investment by installing a new garage door to their property.

So to increase the overall value and curb appeal of your property, think about paying a bit more attention to your garage doors, because you can be sure any potential buyers will be.

A famous witch trial in Hertford

In 1730 a woman died, but the thing that made her passing so notable, was that she was to be one of the last people to be condemned to death for witchcraft in England. The name of this Hertford woman was Jane Wenham. Her trial in 1712 is commonly but incorrectly regarded as the last witch trial in England, although her conviction was ultimately set aside.

She brought a charge of defamation against a Hertford farmer, in response to an accusation he had made of witchcraft against her. The local Justice of the Peace, Sir Henry Chauncy referred the matter to the Rev Gardiner, the local rector. She was awarded with a shilling, though advised to be less quarrelsome with her neighbours in the future. She was displeased with this outcome, and it was reported that she had said she would have justice “some other way”. She supposedly then bewitched Ann Thorne, a servant at the rectory.

The Hertford Witch stands trial

A warrant for her arrest was issued by Sir Henry Chauncy, who gave instructions that she be searched for “witch marks”. She requested that she undergo trials to avoid being detained, such as a swimming test, however, she was asked to repeat the Lord’s Prayer instead, as this was believed to reveal the identity of a genuine witch.

The ‘Hertford Witch’ was brought before Sir John Powell at the Assize Court at Hertford on 4 March 1712. Several villagers gave ‘evidence’ that Wenham was known to practice witchcraft. The judge was clearly more sceptical than the jury of the evidence presented. When an accusation of flying was made against Wenham, the judge remarked that flying, per se, was not actually a crime.

Some historians have suggested that there was generally a difference in attitudes towards supposed witchcraft between educated and less educated people, the latter being more credulous. However, the Wenham case is arguably more complicated than this distinction might imply, as Henry Chauncy, was well educated. Chauncy’s motivation has been the subject of speculation, and it has been argued that political issues were involved in the case of the Hertford Witch. Wenham was removed from her village for her own safety, as once such accusations had been made, regardless of the courts findings, the damage to her reputation would have already been done.

In her last years, she was visited by Bishop Francis Hutchinson, author of an Historical essay concerning witchcraft in which he applied an extremely rational approach to the subject. Hutchinson, who had met other survivors of witch-hunts, regarded their persecution as nothing less than Tory superstition.

The Last Witch play

In 2012, a play entitled The Last Witch was performed at Hertford Theatre and Walkern Hall, three hundred years after the original trial.
