Roller vs Sectional Garage Doors
A garage door is a significant investment, and so you need to be sure you’re making the right choice when buying your new one. However, with the variety of garage door types on the market, it can be difficult to know which one is right for you. In this article, Rollerdor are going to compare two popular types of garage door – roller doors and sectional doors – to help you choose between them.
Roller garage doors
Roller doors are a sleek, stylish option for any property. There’s a range of benefits to having a roller garage door, including:
When a roller garage door opens, it ‘folds’ into a box at the top of the door – this is ideal for smaller garages where space is at a premium, or garages that are being used for storage. Other doors retract into the garage itself, which can take up valuable space.
If you have a garage door that opens up-and-out, then you need to leave distance between the door and the car when parking on your drive. With roller garage doors, this problem is eliminated – you can park millimetres away from the door without fear of damage to your vehicle or the door itself.
Roller garage doors can be operated remotely with just the touch of a button. Once the door is in motion, you won’t need to do anything – the door smoothly retracts into the storage compartment, or unfurls back into position when closed.
Roller garage doors can be fitted into openings of various shapes and sizes, so you needn’t worry about being limited by your property’s form.
Sectional garage doors
Sectional garage doors are available in a range of styles and colours, meaning there’ll be an attractive garage door to suit any property. Many people like the look of the ‘sections’ on the garage door – the clean lines add to the sleek feel.
Sectional garage doors offer a wider opening than up-and-over garage doors. If you drive a 4×4 and you use your garage for car storage, then a sectional garage door might be ideal for you. No more worrying about scratching the paintwork!
Like roller garage doors, sectional doors open vertically, which means you can park as close to them as you need to. Ideal if you have a shorter driveway or if you need to maximise the space available to fit two cars on the drive, for example.
Sectional garage doors pull up and ‘fold’ into the ceiling of the garage, saving space for you to park your car, use as storage or to use as a secondary living room, office or whatever you like.
Sectional garage doors can be fully automated, with a smooth opening and closing mechanism that looks sleek and works with minimal noise.
As you can see, there are many benefits to both sectional and roller garage doors; when choosing between the two – so there’s no such thing as a wrong decision.
