For a house to have harmonised visual aesthetics, it is important to consider the garage as a vital part of the house and not just an add-on where you can compromise on costs. Some houses may have a front facing garage where the visual factor deserves consideration. In such cases, the door you select for your garage makes an impact not only on ease of use and convenience but also on the curb appeal of the house. Given the wide range of door types available, which one to select is a matter of ones outlook, budget and need.
Types of garage doors
There is no lack of choices when it comes to garage doors in the matter of materials from which they are made or the way they operate.
From the perspective of operation, you have the choice of different types of garage Shrewsbury doors by building product suppliers and installers.
• Swing out, single panel or double panel doors with side hinges.
• Up and over retractable garage door using lifting arms with springs and a degree of automation for remote control. This type of door occupies the least space and allows use of full width of the opening.
• Swing up canopy type garage doors that also serve the dual function of a canopy.
• Sliding garage doors are also available for homes. However, if it is a front facing house and space is at a premium on either side then it may not be possible to implement a sliding type door for your garage.
• Sectional roll up door for garage Shrewsbury house owners is popular and for good reasons. It is most practical, affordable, easy to implement and aesthetic as well.
The rolling shutter
Rolling shutters, whether they are vertically oriented or horizontal, are most compact in comparison to other types. From the simplest metal slat corrugated roll up shutters to somewhat more sophisticated roll up and under the ceiling types and horizontal slat types, they are easy to design and maintain while presenting a harmonised look to the building façade. The simplest metal slats will have the mechanism positioned outside which might give a rather industrial look to the frontage. A better option is the use of wooden slats in a mechanical arrangement in which the slats roll up and underneath the ceiling of the garage. The same arrangement can be fixed in a sideways movement where the sections slide horizontally across a side wall inside the garage. An advantage of this type of sectional door for garages is that it can be mechanised and automation can include control unit mounted inside and outside the garage or an ultrasonic or IR based remote control mechanism. You can drive up to the garage door, press a button on the remote and the door opens, allowing you to drive straight in without having to get out of the car to operate the mechanism.
Materials used in doors for garages
The simplest corrugated roll up shutter uses metal, either steel or aluminum. With appropriate coatings, both are durable and light in weight. An improvement is by way of using sandwiched, powder coated aluminum slats. It looks good. The drawback is that should a vehicle or heavy object dash against the corrugation the door can be damaged.
Wood is a perennial favorite where good looks, functionality and durability are required. Treated, coated wood used in sectional roll up and under or swing up and over types of doors will last a long time and are also secure. Quality wood used in the door will resist impact, will not rust, shrink or warp.
Automation in some form or the other is always desirable for the sake of convenience. While one can opt for a motorised control mechanism operated with the help of push buttons, it is more convenient to opt for a remote controlled mechanism. You can sit in your car and use the remote to open the door or shut it.
Regardless of the type of door you select, it is also important to select a quality supplier who can supply the right type and sizes of door customised to the opening in the wall and then install it to perfection for years of hassle-free operation.
