The Benefits of Sectional Garage Doors

Last Updated Jul 6, 2011 · Written by


The humble garage door is actually one of the biggest features that you will find in your home’s exterior and they can actually make or break the look of your home.  One excellent option for your garage doors is sectional garage doors.  Here, we tell you why.

What is a Sectional Garage Door?

A sectional garage door is a type of garage door that is made using a number of panels (usually six to eight) that are connected together and that slide up when they are opened. When fully open, they lie flat against the ceiling of the garage, in the same way that a standard monolithic garage door does.

Sectional Garage Doors are Very Reliable

One big benefit of a sectional garage door is that they are very reliable and durable.  This is because each panel has its own connection to the main garage door track so it is very secure when the door is opened and closed.  You can also repair one panel without having to repair the whole door.  Sectional garage doors are a much better option than the standard garage door that opens outwards and upwards in this way as the standard doors (also called monolithic garage doors) as standard doors only have a few connections, so they can go off track easier, or otherwise have problems.

Sectional Garage Doors are a Space Saving Option

A huge benefit of sectional garage doors is that they save a lot of space in comparison to the standard monolithic garage door.  The way that the sectional garage door opens means that they do not jut out at all when they are open, unlike the standard monolithic doors.  This means that sectional garage doors allow you to park much closer before you get out to open the door,

Sectional Garage Doors are Attractive

Sectional garage doors are an incredibly attractive option as they are available in a range of different colours and styles.  They are equally suitable for classic and contemporary homes and make a stylish, elegant statement.  as well as being available in a range of powder coated colours, sectional garage doors can even be timber look, allowing you to replicate the look of your favourite timber such as Western Red Cedar.  For even more of a stylish statement, you can add some window panels in the topmost sectional panel of the door.
