What Types Of Garage Doors Are There?
There is a huge range of garage doors available in the industry, we are going to talk through some of them today. The types of garage doors we will talk about today include up and over garage doors, rolling doors, double garage doors, and electric garage doors. Each type we talk about today will have advantages and disadvantages, these will be discussed below.
Up & Over Garage Door
Up & over garage doors are the most popular garage doors and provide a beneficial and long-term solution. This type of garage door opens by sliding overhead and under the garage ceiling. Tension springs keep the door open and will prevent it from closing uncontrollably. And potentially causing an accident.
Up and over garage doors are extremely easy to use and some of them are fitted with automation so all you have to do is press a button. The main advantage of automation is that you do not need to get out of the car to open the door, which is especially a benefit if you’re living in the UK. The only disadvantage of this type of garage door is that it will restrict storage space on the ceiling.
Roller Garage Door
A roller garage door takes up the least space in your garage! This type of garage door will help you to keep as much open space as possible. The door will roll vertically without occupying space on the garage ceiling, this is why you can still use the entire ceiling for storage.
Roller doors can be opened automatically too and are easy to secure. Your home, personal belongings, and family will be protected. They are well insulated, ensuring your garage doesn’t get cold and therefore your home is warm too. One disadvantage is that the door will need to be opened completely before anyone or thing can go in. This can be frustrating if you use the garage door more than once a day.
Sectional Garage Door
A sectional door is made of horizontal panels which fit into your garage perfectly. The panels will slide too close to the garage ceiling as they open, this means you will have a lot of space for storage on the ground and for your cars too. Panels are close to the walls the whole time meaning space is always available to you. You can also choose to have the panels run along the wall.
Double Garage Doors
Why have one when you can have two?! Double garage doors have double the advantages: they can be opened from two sides or you can only open one if you need to, which is helpful if you want to enter or leave with a bike, for example, easy access is key with this one. You can add automation to this type of garage, however, you can keep it manual too.
