This summer if you’re working on remodeling the garage please double check to see if you need a garage door replacement. If you have the same doors that were there when you bought the house, maybe its time to get a new door. Check the hinges, color or paint chips and possible rust holes. There are four basic types of garage doors and three types of materials commonly used to construct these doors. If a traditional look is desired for the garage, then the side hung garage door is the usual solution. Side-hung doors can be fitted directly on a wood frame or on bricks.
Types of Garage Doors
Another type of garage door is the sectional garage door. These doors are perfect where the space in front of the garage is limited because they open vertically. They are perfect for a new garage that is intended to have an aesthetic appeal. Similar to sectional garage doors are the roller doors. Residential garage doors and industrial doors are fairly different so be careful when you shop online.

How do Garage Doors Work?
Most garage doors have a movement that rolls up inside a drum above the opening of the door. Also there is no need to allow any room inside or out to operate the door so it would be well suited for limited space in front of the garage.The most popular type of garage door is the up and over garage door. They can be manufactured from GPR materials, timber or steel. They can also be manual or automatic and they are relatively easy to install.
Garage door remotes are more common than back in the past. I recommend automatic garage doors for those who have old manual doors. It will help save time and security especially if it has an alarm. Remotes for garage doors all range in price and depends on the security features. But normally, the price can run between $20 – $300.
