Door Types:

Side Hinged doors are generally made only in a single opening size and can be made to measure.  Whilst they benefit from having no parts intruding into the garage space, clearance is necessary immediately in front of your garage to allow the doors to open.

Up & Over doors are now the most popular type of door, offering excellent value for money.  Pictured here is a timber Up and Over One-piece door manufactured by Horman.

Roller Doors open vertically with no “kickout”.  With the door “rolled” tightly around the drum located above the door opening, the drive-through height is maximised and overhead space within the garage remains free from obstruction.  There’s no need for a timber frame and, as the door is installed behind the brickwork opening, it’s ideal for arched garages.

Sectional Doors generally consist of horizontal panels which rise vertically then glide horizontally into the garage.

Both Roller and Sectional doors are growing in popularity, particularly because they open and close without the arc of travel of a one-piece door. These can be ideal for properties with short driveways or garages as you can park right up to the door itself. Sectional and insulated roller doors also offer the benefit of added insulation - particularly useful if there is a room above the garage or if it is used as a workshop.
