The Various Types of Garage Doors


If you have finally decided to get rid of your old garage doors, there are indeed, many options. Like most things, garage doors have come a long way in the past decade or so, thanks to developments in technology, and with that in mind, here are the main types of garage doors that are available today.

  • Traditional Up & Over Garage Doors – These are manually operated and are great for saving space. The doors are raised, which sends the top into the garage, via a special tracking system, which sits just under the ceiling. Thanks to expert garage door installations in Coalville, it doesn’t take long to install an up and over door, and you have a choice of manual or motorised.
  • Side Hinged Doors– Not so popular, as they require a lot of frontal space when opening, and the two leaves either side, the doors open and close much like normal side opening double doors.
  • Roller Shutter Garage Doors– A very popular choice, the roller shutter doors are made from aluminium or steel and are very secure, with good thermal insulation, much like the shutters you would see on a shop front.

The state-of-the-art garage doors on the market today are a far cry from the old up and over doors you would see 30 years ago, and with motorised solutions, you have remote control.
