Types Of Garage Doors


With the recent statistics on the economy showing that more and more families are spending money on home renovation projects, it is little wonder the garage door industry is benefitting too.

The garage door is by tradition the largest single component of the exterior of your home, and it can reflect your families worth in its appearance. a modern garage door, well finished and perhaps electronically operated can look amazing and add thousands to the value of your home. Compare this to a tatty, un-loved garage door,mind you see why some people are put off. 

With so many people looking to change their garage doors, we are often getting asked what type of door may be best for me. So we can help those who are in the early stages of the purchasing process, we have listed some top things about the main garage doors to help you best choose.

Up and over 

 - Great for tight budgets

 - Traditional in style

 - Do a great job 

 - Swing open 


 - Allow for better use of space inside garage

 - Lots of awesome styles and designs available

 - Can come in insulated options for energy efficiency benefits


- Superb for garages used for storage

- Very very secure 

As you can see from these top points, it is often worth thinking about the use of the garage rather than the door itself when picking the right new garage door for your property. A wrong choice can leave you with a door which limits your use of the garage.
