Choosing a garage door that complements your home
Today, there are lots of stylish garage door designs on the market, which can make the buying decision challenging if you’re not sure what you’re looking for.
It’s important to think about the future and choose a garage door that’s as large as possible because you never know what space you may need for storage or you may buy a larger car in the future.
Here are four types of garage doors you could use at your home.
Roller garage doors
If you have a space problem or a narrow driveway then roller doors are ideal. The doors are made of narrow strips of aluminium that wrap around a drum positioned above the opening of the door. There’s no overhang, swing or reduction in width.
Sectional doors are segmented into large subdivisions along the breadth of the door. The sections open upward into the ceiling space of the garage and because the door stays within the frame the size of the driveway won’t be affected at all.
Up and over garage doors
As the name implies, up and over garage doors are doors that first swing towards the driveway and then move up. When the door is open, it’s aligned with the ceiling of the garage. Keep in mind these doors need some space for opening and swinging, so only use these if you have plenty of room or a long driveway.
Swing hung garage doors
Swing hung garage doors are similar to traditional doors and are hinged to the opening of the door. They need a lot of space so they can be opened easily.
Before you make a decision, think about your home and choose a door that not only complements your home but also meets your needs now and in five or 10 years time.
