Garage door guide

A brand-new garage door is arguably the number one option to enhancing your home’s curb appeal and it’s down to three very simple reasons – improved aesthetics, great return on investment and modest cost.

The fact that a garage door takes up around 20% of your home’s façade is astonishing, making it all that bit more important that you get your choice absolutely perfect.

Types of garage door

Here are the types of garage door we have on offer here at ABi Garage Doors Ltd:

Each garage door can benefit you in many different ways. For example, timber garage doors look absolutely amazing and can therefore transform your property’s exterior, but they require a lot of maintenance, and their durability, insulation and security are nowhere near the levels of a sectional or roller garage door.

The most popular door we have here at ABi is the sectional, this is down to its fantastic insulation properties, security levels, and the fact you lose no driveway space.

Choosing the right one

Due to the fact there are a lot of doors on offer to you, when it comes to the decision making, it can be rather daunting. There are many things that need to be taken in to account such as the type of your home, how your garage will be used and what kind of area you live in.

If you live in an area that has high crime levels, then you will want to choose a garage door with fantastic security – which will leave you choosing between the sectional and roller garage door.

When it comes to the type of home, you may have a large Victorian house with old brickwork which wouldn’t look as good with a sectional or roller compared to a timber. The timber garage door adds a bit of class as well as complimenting the traditional look.

The main thing you need to think about is how your garage is going to be used. If the space is going to be used a simple storage space for items you don’t use that often, you want a secure yet not overly flashy option. But if you’re planning on using your garage as a workshop, fitness room, home office or something along those lines, you will want the garage door with the highest security and insulation levels as possible. This will not only keep you and your belongings secure, but it will also mean your garage is a comfortable environment to work in all year round.
