Garage doors are critical in the everyday life of many people. We interact with them more often than not. Garage doors, therefore, need to be fixed as fast as possible and in the best way possible if they happen to break down or have any problems.
Types of Garage Doors
There are six common types of garage doors:
- Sectional Garage Doors
They are made of a panel of sections that are linked together using hinges. They are mostly made from steel and are customizable to have windows, textures, hardware, and colours. There are two models, which are insulated and non-insulated types.
- Roll up Garage Doors
As the name suggests, they open by rolling up. They used more in commercial areas than in residential areas. They can withstand heavy usage and provide better performance.
- Slide to the Side Garage Doors
Also, as the name implies, it opens by bending to either side of the garage and then sits parallel to the wall. Balancing springs are not necessary and are operated automatically using a retractable motor that is built-in.
- Side Hinged Garage Doors
These are the old fashioned designs. They are more like doors and open, just like normal doors do. They are most suitable for garages that have limited headroom or obstructions.
- Over Canopy Garage Doors
When open, they align parallel to the garage. They use a pivoting hinge that allows it to tilt up the garage.
- Up and Over Retractable Garage Doors
They are in a way similar to the canopy design, but they instead tilt up and retract into the garage. They suspend disjointedly from the frame.
