There are plenty of factors that can influence your decision, when choosing a new garage door. You might want to consider its energy-efficiency, its soundproofing abilities and you’ll certainly be influenced by the amount of space it takes up. In addition, there are the aesthetics to think about; does it look right? And let’s not forget about the issue of security! While you could spend forever deciding which garage door you’re going to buy, we’ve created a quick guide to which ones are best-suited to which garages.
Wooden Garage Doors
Wooden garage doors are ideal for homes with character. Whether you live in a rustic, countryside retreat or a modern home, they can add a touch of class to any property. With plenty of different materials available, you can choose the wood that best suits your home. While pine, mahogany and oak are increasingly popular, don’t overlook woods, such as cedar or spruce.
Roller Garage Doors
At their most basic, roller garage doors are ideal for garages where space is a premium. Stored overhead, there’s no kick-out to worry about and they take up as little interior space as possible.
Sectional Garage Doors
Sectional garage doors are ideal for those who live in areas that take a bit of a beating from the elements. Durable and well-insulated, they will withstand pretty much anything Mother Nature throws at them and can help to keep your energy bills down. They offer excellent draughtproofing facilities and can be accommodated by most garages.
Up and Over Garage Doors
The one that most people know, up and over garage doors are easy to use and aesthetically pleasing. They can be made from a variety of materials, including steel and aluminium. However, up and over garage doors come into their own when operated with a remote. Using a remote means no more standing in the rain, trying to use your slippery fingers to get the door open; just point and press.
