Automated Garage Door
Your first garage door choice should be between whether you want it to be manual or automated. If your home is connected to the garage or you live in a place where it rains a lot and you would like to get into your garage without getting wet then an automated garage door is for you.
Automated garage doors will allow you to open your garage from the comfort of your vehicle as you arrive home. If you have shopping or other items in your car then you can transfer these from your car to your home with privacy and ease. Automated doors also provide you with added security keeping you and your family safe at all times.
Up and Over Garage Door
An up and over garage door is certainly a popular choice. If you are looking to perhaps automate in the future then this is also the perfect option for you. Ensure you go for a retractable mechanism as this is much easier to work should you want to upgrade.
Roller Shutter Garage Door
