Most people take a certain amount of pride in how their house looks, both internally and externally, paying attention to the garden, the look of our windows and front door, as well as the general exterior of the house. The garage door can also make a great contribution to the look and style of your house, though it is often overlooked until the old one is falling apart. Recent years have seen many new options in style and means of operation, as well as aesthetics, so if yours is past its sell by date, here are some of the options available to you.
The Traditional Garage Door
The traditional garage door, which opens in the centre with the two doors opening left and right seems to be fading in popularity. Put simply, it is old fashioned, inefficient and far less user friendly than more modern options. Having to open one door and secure it against the wind, then the same for the other side, is not very user friendly.
The Sectional Garage Door
The sectional garage door has a classic and elegant look to it and opens vertically, with a panelled design, which allows the sections to store away very neatly, especially useful if you have a fairly small garage and space is at a premium. They are very easy to install, come in a range of styles and sizes and are available both in manual and electrically operated versions.
Sliding Garage Doors
Sliding garage doors are made up of several horizontal panels and can provide fast and easy access to your garage. Operating on runners, the door slides to the left or the right, hugging the wall of your garage and taking up virtually no space at all once open. Many people like to store things in the ceiling space of their garage, which can be a problem with an up and over door, so for those people, the sliding door is a really great option.
The Up and Over Garage Door
A very popular option, the up and over garage door is strong, secure and has great looks. They are extremely simple to operate, simply grab the handle and pull and it flips horizontally. If you also use your garage as a workshop, options are available to help keep the cold out. Insulated up and over garage doors in Nottingham can help to make it a warmer environment, not to mention their fantastic looks, ease of installation and wide option of finishes.
The Rollmatic Garage Door
Rollmatic doors are made from high quality, corrosion free materials, which keep them looking great for many years to come. Ideal when space is at a premium, it folds away neatly, leaving the ceiling space in your garage completely clear. They run very smoothly and quietly and can be opened and closed at the push of a button, while offering automatic illumination at the same time. Available in a wide range of looks and styles, the Rollmatic is gaining in popularity.
