Single panel doors

Most people's garage are single garages. These are popular as they are not too heavy to open. one person can easily pull up a single garage gate by hand, or alternatively, the gate can have an automatic opening mechanism. These doors open overhead; they are attached above the railing and you either push them up or pull them down.

Sectional doors

Sectional garage doors differ from single panel as they are made of sections, normally around six or more, allowing the door to fold up as it opens. They are cheaper than their single panel equivalent, but may require more maintenance. The joints between the panels can become still or rusted, which keep them from functioning properly.

Rolling panels

Rolling panel doors are another easily maintained type of door. Roller doors are a good choice if you have a wide doorway. They are expensive, but can be worth the money if they are taken care of properly. You have to lubricate the many strips they are made of in order to keep them functioning.
