If you are in the market for a garage door, either to replace one that has seen better days, or as part of a new build, there are many options to consider. In order to help you make the right choices, here is a brief rundown of the types of garage doors available today.
- The Up and Over – This style has remained popular since its introduction on the 1970s, mainly due to the lack of space required to open or close the door. The door is conveniently stored in a horizontal position just below the ceiling, and by using a series of springs and pulleys, operation is smooth and effortless. The garage door fitters in Fareham would first go through the options with you, as there are many different colours if you choose aluminium, and a timber door might be more preferable in a rustic setting, or a faux timber aluminium finish.
- Traditional Side-Hinged Doors – If you have the space either side of your garage, a pair of traditional side opening doors would be in keeping with the home, and with a choice of timer or aluminium, you can design the perfect solution.
- Roller Shutter Garage Doors – Very popular, as they require no space in which to operate, as the door is made from many narrow slats that roll into a casement placed above the doorway. Guide tracks on either side ensure smooth tracking, and with motorised solutions, you have the convenience of remote control.
