Roller or sectional?


Are you stuck as to which garage door to choose for your next home improvement? With many doors available to you here at Huddersfield Garage Doors, we thought we would whittle it down to the two most popular – the sectional and roller garage door.

Whilst both of these choices are great for multiple reasons such as aesthetics and security, your choice will be influenced by your needs and requirements. Let’s get started.


Our roller garage doors will fit in to more openings than our sectional doors as well as saving a lot more space too. The door is made up from horizontal slats which tightly wrap around each other and vertically roll up into a box located above the door’s opening. The operation means that no driveway, wall or ceiling space is lost, and the roller garage door is the only door that can say this.

Available in over 200 colours and a selection of wood-grain finishes, our roller garage doors are ready to make an impact on any type of home. Here are a number of other benefits:

  • Electric operation included as standard
  • 10-year warranty
  • Glazing options supplied on request
  • Wind locks come as standard


The sectional garage doors on offer to you here at Huddersfield Garage Doors may take up a little bit more room inside your garage, but it is the impact it can make on your exterior that is the impressive part. With a wide range of colours, materials and finishes to choose from, matching your garage door to the style of your home has never been easier.

Similar to the roller, the sectional garage door opens vertically, but its horizontal panels bend over the track and is then stored parallel to the garage’s ceiling when the door is open. This means that you need the ceiling free at all times, but thanks to the door bending, you lose no driveway space and the door doesn’t have the swing-out effect that the up and over and side-hinged garage doors do. Here are some other benefits of the sectional garage door:

  • Highly scratch-proof Duragrain
  • Choice of manual or electric operation
  • Every door comes with a 10-year warranty
  • A choice of Georgian or ribbed (horizontal) panels
