Do You Know Your Door? Types of Garage Doors

The Many Types of Garage Doors

If you live in a house, chances are that you have a garage. And if you have a garage, there is probably more than one type of door leading to it. A garage door can be an important part of your home because it provides security and protection from the elements for the space inside.

The most common type of garage door is the sectional overhead. This style consists of a set of panels that open vertically and roll on tracks along the ceiling or roof to provide easy access for cars into your home’s main living area, as well as good insulation from outside weather conditions. Panel doors are also known in some areas as “headache doors,” since they can be difficult to service without professional help.

But there are other types too! A retractable door essentially becomes one with its opening when closed by rolling back between two track sections mounted at either side of an entranceway; this design provides excellent security because it doesn’t leave any gaps big enough for people or things to slip through undetected.

Other type of garage doors is the folding door, which is made to be very strong. All of these doors are different in their shapes and styles so it’s really important that you find out what one would work best for your needs before buying anything!

Also, there is an alternative to the most common type of garage door, the roll-up. It is a vertical rolling garage door that operates on an overhead track and chain mechanism to open up and down; it functions much like a pair of curtains opening for entry into your home or office space so you can get in without having to lift anything!

The safety features are another thing you need to consider when buying one of these doors – if they’re not installed correctly, accidents could happen. For example, since many people pass through them each day and none of us want any shortcuts taken with their installation (which would compromise safety), be sure to hire a professional contractor who knows what he’s doing before installing this product!
