Picking the right door


When picking a new garage door there are a lot of choices to choose from.

Firstly you have to decide what material such as timber or steel.  Once you have chosen your material, you then have to think about what style of garage door to have. There are four main options; these are the up and over garage door, the sectional garage door, the roller garage door and a side hinged door which is popular in large properties.

In this article, the team at Huddersfield Garage Doors will look at the differences and positives of choosing a sectional and a roller garage door.

Sectional garage doors

The sectional garage door has become one the most popular doors in the Yorkshire region over the past 20 years. Firstly it has a great look and appearance which makes it popular in both modern and traditional homes. However its big plus point is that it allows for maximum use of your garage due to splitting into four equal sections when opening. Because of this you can also park closer to the garage door as there is no swing mechanism brackets which happens with an up and over door, meaning the door opens and vertically.

Another great plus point of the sectional garage door is when electronically operated it looks superb and can be insulated to high levels should you be concerned about your environmental impact. This means that should you have a garage underneath a room or adjacent to your home you can limit the heat loss from your home through the garage and out of the garage door.

The roller garage door

The roller door, much like the sectional door has some very similar features and has gained in popularity of the last five years. Roller doors are much more common on large commercial buildings however homeowners are realising that the space-saving qualities that they have and their cost-effective packages make them an enticing proposition.

Again the door opens vertically which means that you can store right up to the front of the garage door. This could be the difference between storing a car in the garage and not, so think wisely when choosing an option. Where a difference however is that there are not as many styles to choose from with the sectional garage door.
