Garage Doors Explained


Garage doors last a long time, so at Huddersfield Garage Doors we often meet people who have been homeowners for years but have never purchased a new garage door- and therefore know nothing about them.

With so many different types and variations of garage doors on the market, it’s easy to understand why homeowners find buying a new garage door a stressful process. To make it easier, our Huddersfield-based garage door team has prepared this article to help homeowners along the way!

Up & Over Garage Doors

Up & over garage doors are ideal for homeowners who have space on their drive but need some extra space in their garage. These garage doors are extremely reliable, functional and contemporary. Complete with an anti-drop safety device, these garage doors are known to be one of the safest on the market, not only to use, but to keep unwanted thieves out of your home too as they are extremely different to break through due to being available in a range of strong materials such as steel.

Sectional Garage Doors

Sectional garage doors are perfect for homeowners looking to save space at every possibility. One of the best engineered on the market, these garage doors split into sections, which run on vertical and horizontal tracks back into the garage. Sectional garage doors come with great insulation options, weather seals and can work either manually or automatic.

Roller Garage Doors

Roller garage doors are probably the most secure on the market, which is why a lot of commercial businesses in the Huddersfield area have them outside of their shops. These doors are made up of insulated aluminium laths which vertically lift and then roll into a box at the head of the garage door – ideal for space saving!
