If you are one of the thousands of homeowners who has a short driveway, you’ll be aware of all the problems that come with it – particularly when it comes to your garage door. Parking close to your garage door can be difficult, especially if you want to avoid it ‘kicking out’ and clipping the end of your car. Unfortunately, shorter driveways are part of the deal for many houses and the increasing numbers of new-build developments. If you always park your car in the garage, then it’s not a major worry. However, if you use your garage for storage or as an extra part of your home, then it can present itself as an obstacle. At the Garage Door and Automation Company, we’ve got the perfect solution to this all-too-common predicament.
No Compromise on Space
The simple answer is to replace your existing garage door with a sectional garage door. Sectional garage doors rise on the vertical plane, before travelling on tracks into the garage space. With no kick out to consider, you can park your car as close to the garage as you like, without any worry about catching your vehicle. In addition, having a sectional garage door installed means that you don’t compromise on the space offered by your driveway. Some other types of garage door use lifting gears, which can take up valuable parking space.
However, it’s not just about functionality. With your garage door acting as the largest, moving part of your home, aesthetics can be just as important. Sectional garage doors might be a more complex form of garage door design, but they come in a variety of styles and colours, allowing you to choose the one that best complements the look of your home. You’ll also find that there are options available to have sectional garage doors made specifically for your opening, so even the quirkiest of man-caves can have a properly-fitting and full-functional entrance.
Secure and Energy-saving
While sectional garage doors tend to have more moving parts than other types of garage door, they are proven to be more reliable in the long term. Fully-insulated and with all the security features you’d expect from a 21st Century product, they can help to minimise heat-transfer and act as a formidable deterrent for would-be burglars.
