Roller Garage Door Buyer’s Guide

When it comes to choosing a new garage door you’d be forgiven for thinking that they’re all pretty much the same. After all, they all do the same job, right? 


There are a whole host of garage door types out there and it’s important to select one that meets your needs. One of the most versatile is the roller garage door, which combines security, energy efficiency and style in one slick, steel or aluminium door. 

Our team at Rollerdor has spent more than a decade as the UK’s roller garage door specialists and have put together a helpful buyer’s guide that will provide you with everything you need to know when buying a roller garage door.  

Why You Should Choose Roller Garage Doors

There are two main types of roller garage doors: the first is a single skin steel roller doors that are cheap, made from one corrugated sheet and roll into a large box, and then there is the double skinned aluminium roller doors that are easy to install, offer more protection and a higher level of insulation with individual foam filled slats. While the two types may have different properties, they operate in the same way with the door able to smoothly retract up into a box that helps maximise your garage’s space. 

As well as being able to offer your garage more room, roller garage doors have a number of great benefits that elevate them above other options on the market. This includes the great energy efficiency that comes with roller garage doors. These doors are much better at retaining heat in the home and can often save homeowners money on their bills.

They’re also incredibly easy to operate with an electronic remote control system, making them a popular choice among customers.      

Choose Your Colour

Once you’ve settled on the type of roller garage door you want to install, it’s time to choose your colour.

Undoubtedly you’ll want a design that matches the decor and style of your home’s exterior, and it can be tricky to know what suits. 

Luckily for you Rollerdor has you covered. On our website you’ll find a colour picker tool where you can browse through a wide range of colours and find out what works for your home.   

Measure Your Space

Next, it’s time to measure your space. Use a standard tape measure to measure the area where you’re looking to have your roller garage doors installed, brick to brick and floor to lintel. Roller garage doors are all made to measure bespoke but typically, domestic roller garage doors are no bigger than 4,875mm wide and 2,285mm high, If you want your doors to be larger, or have any other queries regarding size feel free to get in touch with the Rollerdor team. For installed doors we offer free onsite surveys that will check your measurements and the specifications of the door you’ve selected. 

Get In Touch Online

Once you’ve done all of the above, the final thing to do is to get in touch! Visit our website where you can complete a digital form including all the information regarding your project. 

Usually we’ll need to complete a visit to your home or business before confirming the work, just to see what we’re working with.    

At Rollerdor we guarantee the highest quality product along with the very best service. This is why we provide a minimum two-year warranty on every roller garage door we install. To find out more about what we do, or to make a booking, contact us today.
