Sectional or roller?


This isn’t any easy question to answer by any means, but we are here to assist you and provide as much helpful information as possible. We are going to delve into the colours, designs, mechanisms and features that make the sectional and roller garage doors so unique and effective.


Both of the door’s mechanisms are extremely beneficial in the sense that they don’t take up a whole lot of space.

The sectional opens vertically and bends over the tracks (rather than swinging out and possibly causing problems) thanks to the horizontal panels it is made up from. The door is then stored parallel to the ceiling in your garage, meaning you will have to leave that space free.

Roller garage doors also open vertically, but rather than storing directly above your head, it is stored in a drum above the doors opening. Made up from multiple horizontal slats, the roller wraps itself around a drum and is then stored inside a box above the opening – making this the ultimate space-saving garage door.

Colours & design

If you’re looking for a garage door that can make a real impact to the exterior look to your home, then a sectional garage door may be your perfect match. Whilst a roller garage door is available in over 200 colours and multiple finishes, a sectional garage door has much more choice of design and can make the front of your home look that little bit more elegant.
