Roller versus sectional garage doors. If you are considering a replacement garage door then you will have to make a decision on which door will suit your requirements. All of the different kinds of garage doors that we provide have their own advantages. In this article we will look into both roller garage doors and sectional garage doors so you can make an informed decision.
Sectional Garage Door
Sectional garage doors have practical advantages and high levels of security. A sectional door is made-up from separate sections rather than a single panel, and all of these are sealed on all four sides. This allows for smooth operating and additional protection against the elements. The sections slide up vertically and then across into the roof area, so they are a good choice when headroom inside the garage is not an issue, but space in front of the door is.
As these doors are made from galvanised steel, and are coated with polyester paint, they have long term durability. You will save money in the long run as you may need never invest in a replacement. Most sectional garage doors carry a ten year warranty.
You can choose from a wide range of styles including insulated and non-insulated. If your garage forms part of your property then it is a good idea to go for an insulated option. When it comes to roller versus sectional garage doors, sectional win hands down on this. The range of our doors can fit into a variety of garage openings.

Some of our roller garage doors only require as little as 9” of headroom. this is were the roller door is best in the roller versus sectional garage doors contest.
