So, whether you want to add value to your home, add curb appeal or are simply wishing to upgrade to an insulated door, here are the most popular garage door styles on the current market.
Up and over garage doors
Combining quality with an attractive look, the original up and over garage door offers you everything – quality and security, good looks and comfort, plus mature technology. Cardale’s Garage Door Range includes a white prima so you can easily change the colour to suit your property’s style, it also includes a white plastisol finish that protects the steel door surface from the elements ensuring longevity and a low maintenance high quality finish. There is a high performance woodgrain laminate option available in Weathergrain Golden Oak and Weathergrain Rosewood finishes.
Side hinged garage doors
This style offers a stylish alternative to more common door types, and offers opportunities that other garage door types are not able to. The simple operation is easy to maintain, ensuring that a side hinged door will provide years of worry-free service. The Wessex range is suitable for garages that are in frequent pedestrian use and for locations where obstructions are present within the garage that would prevent the installation of an up and over door. All the doors are available in Classic or Exclusive ranges making them popular with a wide range of customers.
Steel roller doors
Steel roller doors come in many varying qualities, and that really makes the difference when choosing which one will suit your needs. Aluroll steel roller garage doors provide a high security “Secured By Design” status for both domestic and commercial garage doors up to 16m. This particular range from Aluroll has been tested by the Loss Prevention Certification Board (LPCB) and is security rated at SR1. These garage doors come in a wide range of colours and finishes including wood grains that can match your windows and doors, which is another reason why they’re a popular choice.
Sectional garage doors
Where limited drive space is an issue, sectional garage doors are the perfect choice as they open and shut vertically, allowing cars to park within inches of the door without impairing functionality. This leaves more height in the garage, making them a popular choice for people with 4x4s and other tall cars. Sectional doors come in a wide range of colours and finishes, with different sized sections and double-skinned for greater insulation. Our most popular ranges, Hormann and Garador are covered with a comprehensive ten-year warranty offering piece of mind and the functionality that many find indispensable.
