Types of Garage Doors
Are you looking for a new garage door? Below details the different type of garage doors available for you. The more common garage doors are the manual up and over and the electric roller garage doors.
Below details about four types of garage doors available.
Canopy Garage Door
This garage door is very common in homes and most of them are manually operated due to budget restrictions. This garage door is very simple to operate as you lift and push the garage door up to leave it hang over the driveway. Sometimes the door can fall to head height causing a dangerous obstruction.
This door is quite easy to install with only a frame secured to the garage opening and for customers who don’t use their garage regularly.
Retractable Garage Door
Although this is similar to the canopy garage door there are a few differences. Such as the door extends further from the frame and the door then retracts and is stored in the ceiling on runners in the garage, which means there is no overhang left as the door is flushed with the opening of the garage when open.
Again straight forward to install but for customers who don’t want the obstruction over their driveway.
Roller Garage Door
This garage door looks like a security shutter or window blind and works in the same manner. With both automatic and manual the door rolls up and down but this door can improve the width on the opening of the garage as the runners are installed behind the brick on the garage entrance.
Becoming a popular option of garage door with customers as reduces drafts and convenient. Customers are willing to pay for the benefits of the convenience.
Sectional Garage Door
If the garage door is to be used a lot then this could be a good choice with added insulation. This type of door is the roller and retractable garage door in one. The door splits into large sections and they move up and are stored in the roof ceiling on runners.
