What Type of Garage Door Should You Fit in Your Home?

Deciding on the right garage door to fit is not an easy task, especially as it is there to protect what is for many people, their most prized possession – their car. Apart from safety, there are other important aspects to take into account including the amount of space you have in and around your garage, how often you will use it, and what style suits your property. So here is a guide to the garage door types we offer and what they offer you.

Up and Over

Traditionally the most common type of garage door, the up and over does as its name suggests; it opens to fit up and over the entrance. Up and over doors move in one single piece. Canopy style up and over doors protrude from the garage to form a canopy, while retractable style doors fit neatly back into the garage.

Sectional Doors

Sectional doors open vertically and are suspended under the garage ceiling to save space. These doors are constructed from individual slats that bend as the door is opened and closed. This type of door offers the convenience of being opened and closed by remote and allows you to park right up next to it as it does not swing out.

Roller Shutter Doors
