Types of garage doors

A functioning garage door is essential to the security and convenience of your home, keeping the elements and intruders out and allowing easy egress when you need it. It’s also a large part of the appearance of your home, placing further importance on its selection and upkeep.

There are various garage doors to choose from for your home, including variations on style, operating mechanisms, and materials. Browse through the articles below to find the right fit for your home's look and needs.

Roller doors

Roller doors, like tilt doors, are used almost exclusively as garage doors. Because of the way they operate, roller doors generally take up less space than tilt doors, and are often automated.

Tilt doors

Hinged tilt doors are commonly used for garages and sheds, and offer a simple and cost-effective way to create a large, accessible opening.

Sectional garage doors

Sectional doors are made of large, horizontal panels that open by lifting up and moving into space below the ceiling. They come in a variety of materials and finishes.

Flex-a-door garage doors

Flex-a-doors combine the corrugated iron of a roller door with the movement of a sectional door, providing security without occupying much space.
