Garage doors

Each home with cars has a garage. Obviously it has doors right? This is a large door on a garage that can either be opened manually or by a garage door opener. Even though of many designs, most garage doors are upward-acting, sectional, and self-storing. Garage doors are necessarily large to allow passage of your automobiles and/or trucks (or similar).

There are four basic types of garage doors and three types of materials commonly used to construct these doors.

1. Thus, if a traditional look is desired for the garage, then the side hung garage door is the usual solution. Side-hung doors can be fitted directly or straight on a wood frame or on bricks.

2. Another type of garage door is the sectional garage door. These doors are perfect where the space in front of the garage is limited because they open vertically. They are perfect for a new garage that is intended to have an aesthetic appeal.

3. Similar to sectional garage doors are the roller doors. The door rolls up inside a drum above the opening of the garage door. Also there is no need to allow any room inside or out to operate the door so it would be well suited for limited space in front of the garage.

4. And finally, the last type of door is the most common one, up and over garage door. This is the most popular type. They can be manufactured from timber, steel and GPR materials. They can also be manual or automatic and they are relatively easy to install.
