A Guide to Selecting the Right Garage Doors for your Home

Garage doors come in all shapes and sizes, indeed, each unit is made specifically to fit the customer’s garage, and with a wide range of design and material choices, there are many things to consider. Here is a list of the most common types of garage doors that are available today.

  1. The Up & Over Garage Doors – Fully retractable, the up and over doors are ideal for a garage with limited space, and the tracking is mounted horizontally to guide the door as it opens or closes. Very strong springs on either side make operation smooth, and this type of door can be motorised. Talk to the experienced suppliers of garage doors in Guildford for a competitive quote.
  2. Roller Garage Doors – The doors roll up into a compact way at the top of the frame, and the aluminium slats have an inner layer of insulation, which helps keep the cold weather out. A bottom rail is fitted for extra security, ensuring that the door cannot be levered open when locked, and with a wide range of rich colours that include a faux timber grain, you can select the ideal colour that blends with the surroundings. Roller doors can be manually or motorised, depending on your preference, and with automatic locking, you have great security.
  3. Side Hinged Garage Doors – With a choice of metal timber or PVC, side opening doors are ideal if you need access on a regular basis. Of course, you will need adequate space outside the garage and with a floor rail inserted, this gives the doors tracking to open of close.

If you would like to know more about the range of garage doors, an online search will help you find a local supplier.
