Roller or sectional garage door?


Are you considering investing in a brand-new garage door for your home? If so, look no further than here at Huddersfield Garage Doors, we are the leading garage door provider in Huddersfield and have been for the past 30 years. All our garage doors have their own advantages and disadvantages, but in this article, we will be focusing on the roller garage door, and the sectional garage door sto help you come to a decision.

Roller garage door

The main benefit of a roller garage door is that it will fit in to just about any shape of door opening, meaning no matter how wide or narrow your garage is, a roller garage door is available for you.

Another benefit is that roller garage doors don’t require any room on the garage ceiling, only above the opening. This is because the door shuts by tightly wrapping itself around a drum which stored above the opening.

Unfortunately, the roller garage door is restrictive in terms of designs – it is only available in the default design, which are a collection of horizontal slats. But if you want to make it a bit funkier, it comes in an array of colours.

Sectional garage door

A sectional garage door isn’t made up from single panels, it has separate horizontal panels which run from one side of the opening to the other – each of which are sealed on all four sides. Every panel is also connected to the mechanism, meaning it is extremely secure, something everyone will want from their garage door.

The main downside to a sectional garage door is that it requires a fair amount of space on the ceiling where the mechanism will run – but it doesn’t need any space outside your garage, meaning you can park however close to the garage you want.

This particular type of garage door is available in multiple panel designs and colours, meaning if you want to get creative with your garage, this may be the one for you.
