Recently some drunk yahoo I am guessing ran his scooter into the Aluminum door that on my front gate (next to the garage door) and left a huge dent in the door. I have been to the local hardware store but it doesn’t have the same time of door that I had before. So does anyone know of any websites that I can look at and order these types of doors.
This is the type of door that I am looking for, except mine is solid panel door with a copper tint to it that has a more elaborate design etched into the door (a dragon and something else).
I have been searching for a couple weeks now for a new door but I have no idea where to find these things, I have asked other but no one has been able to tell me where to find one either, so I am hoping that the vast knowledge of forumosa can help me to find a site that sells these. I am even willing to buy one from over seas as long as I can see what the door looks like before ordering it.
thanks for your help…wasn’t too sure where to put this so I added it here.
Can you tell me the name of the place? I am living in a rented house from a friend who is studying in the UK. but they will be home soon for the mid-autumn festival and well I don’t want them to think I broke their door and didn’t fix it.
Try calling up a couple of these companies, they’re just the first few search hits for Taichung based outfits that do steel and aluminium doors, windows, installation, etc. You definitely don’t need to order from overseas…
You just need to get a blue truck guy to come over to see what it is you’re after and he’ll either show you a catalog or perhaps take you to a supplier to see what options there are… If you want to do the work yourself, they’ll probably be willing to just sell you a door…

OMG will the door actually cost me $10million NT
No way I can pay that much for a door. That had better come with the house attached to it
I don’t think that it will be too difficult to hang the door my self, but if it is too difficult I guess I can get the blue truck guys to do it.

It’s in Taipei, Hsinlong Rd, Section 3. Seriously doubt they’d have any interest in heading down to Taichung for a sale/install. Most residential areas will have them; just drive around and have a look on a main drag in a part of town that is mostly residential housing. You’re looking at anywhere between $10k and $40k, depending on intricacy. Those like in the pictures you posted should be towards the lower end of the scale. Btw, won’t your friend notice when he comes back and sees a whole new door?
Well that is much better than I was thinking…I need to improve my Chinese…
I will try the neighbors, but some of them are not to pleased with me now because I recently took in a rescued dog. Even though he is a good dog, doesn’t bark, doesn’t crap in our neighborhood, pees in our own back yard, etc etc. However they say he stinks, and that he is always barking blah blah. So I have lost some of slack I had with my neighbors, but there is a guy a few houses away that keeps a pig, so he should be kind I guess.
Yea I am sure they will notice, but I am hoping maybe I can find a door that is close enough to the original to pass as a substitute until I can find one or have one made to match the original.
That is if I can’t find someone who can repair this door.
btw~ I guess the only reason I haven’t noticed these types of places is because I live on the outer edge of beitun district and the houses here are more spread out…not too many shops/home mechanics etc that you see in the city.
