Up & Over vs Sectional


At Huddersfield Garage Doors we know a thing or two about garage doors. We’ve been serving the area for years, and have picked up on what the people in the area love and what they don’t. Our two biggest sellers for residential properties are the sectional garage door and the up and over garage door- they are both fantastic doors which work perfectly depending on your requirements.

So which garage door would best suit your Huddersfield home?


If you are looking to stick to a budget when buying a new garage door both of these options would be a good consideration. Although at face value these garage doors may seem a little higher, they really pull it back by saving you money in the long run on maintenance costs- that’s because they are cheaper to repair when needed and easier to clean and look after.

Both sectional garage doors and up and over garage doors are very popular, which means we can offer you a range of price points for these options which offer variety in the form of materials, colour and styles.


In both instances, section and up and over garage doors are both very easy to use. They both are automatically controlled and have a spring system installed to assist with the lift- ensuring a safe opening and closing. Arguably, sectional garage doors operate a little smoother than up and over garage doors- which can sometimes sway homeowners in the region.


Space is a big issue that a lot of homeowners will look to improve when buying a garage door. Sectional garage doors are very desirable because of this as it’s increased headspace is created by the lack of tracks needed- plus they sit high out of the way- so really impact little on the homeowner.

Although there is little between a sectional garage door and an up and over garage door, it is really up to the homeowner to make the decision on what would best suit their household. At Huddersfield Garage Doors- our team of experts can advise- and can even make on-site visits to help you along the way. For more information call our team on 01484 829 612.
