Garage doors have become statements and design elements in many home designs today. While function should still be the primary goal, garage door styles, designs and colors are proving to be equally important. Early garage doors were hinged on the sides and swung open, these doors function very well, but require a great deal of space. One piece garage doors swing open and closed on a pivot point. these function, but do not allow for a good seal between garage door and the frame and are often times very heavy. Sectional garage doors are the most common type of garage doors we see today. Sectional garage doors are made of separate panels that hinge together, and open and close using tracks, wheels, pulleys, cables and springs. Sectional garage doors can be made of many types of products like steel, aluminum, vinyl and wood. There are also rollup doors that rollup and wrap around in a cylindrical fashion, these are most often seen in commercial applications. In the UK they have developed Round the Corner garage doors. These type doors are similar to sectional doors that run in an over head and floor mounted track and are a interesting option if you have low clearance or minimal space in your garage.
