Know any type and see for yourself which one best suits your space, style, and needs. Here are the common types:
1. Roller: Ideal for short or small driveway. It rolls around the drum above the opening. It is usually operated by remote control and has an automatic locking mechanism. An aluminum strip is common for this type of manufacturing.
2. Up and over: It swings outwards and then up and parallel to the ceiling of the garage. This will work better in the spacious garage for extensive space requirements of door operation.
3. Sectional: Teamed type before, but with a difference when being opened. It need not be swung outwards to open. Instead pull the door up is the way it goes.
4. Swing Hung: Basically operates like a normal door. This requires you to hinge for opening the garage door. It requires a spacious room also for the opening.
