Roller Garage Door vs Sectional Garage Door: Which is Best?

When it comes to choosing the right specifications for your garage door, there are a number of things to consider. Whether it be the colour, finish or the style, choosing between the options can be a tough decision. With that said, we are on hand to make it easier for you by looking at two common styles; roller doors and sectional doors.

Roller Garage Door

Roller doors are primarily a space saving door system that offers the additional benefit of insulation if required. Roller garage doors offer width and space on the driveway, similarly to sectional designs and are ideal for those with limited parking room.

The majority of roller systems are automated and come equipped with 2 handsets and a control board which offers an additional button to enable the opening of the door from inside the garage, this can usually be found near the entrance to the property from the house.

Roller doors are available in 3 finishes, a standard range offering 6 colours, a superior range offering 15 colours and a laminated range offering 16 woodgrain finish options to ensure that any front door or window colour can be matched to the unique designs of your property. In addition, 4 smooth woodgrain finishes are available for the budget conscious, without compromising on the quality!

Roller garage doors are typically a less expensive alternative to sectional doors but don’t write them off yet…

Sectional Garage Door

Sectional garage doors are rapidly growing in popularity here in the UK. These types of garage doors open vertically and are known as ‘Sectional’ doors due to their construction, being made of separate sections.

Sectionals are typically regarded as a higher end product compared with roller systems. Their superb engineering, warranties and huge choice of finish and colour make them a very desirable choice! Not only that but sectional garage doors offer fantastic security for your property with an insulated barrier of up to 45mm or single skinned for the budget conscious.

Much like roller garage doors, sectional doors are vertically lifting allowing you to park right up to the door and maximise the parking space that you have available. Sectional doors offer weather resistance with sealed weather stripping on all sides. If you opt for an insulated sectional garage door you will improve your thermal insulation as well as reduce noise from outside. They are aesthetically pleasing and provide both practicality and durability.
