What is the difference between a sectional garage door and a rolling garage door?
This is a very good Garage Door Question. Businesses use the roll up garage doors most of the time. They are becoming popular in large homes because of the look and extra safety they can afford. These garage doors roll up like a carpet at the top of the entrance, which makes them more compact. A sectional garage door is the popular doors found on most homes. The door has at least four sectional panels that the door can go all the way into the garage without sticking out the front.
Rolling garage doors are the ones used by businesses. You’ll see this type on the windows and doors on some buildings as well as the garage door. They are called rolling doors because the whole door rolls up like a mat on the top of the door entrance. The other type of door is the sectional garage door this type of garage door is installed on residential homes. When the doors are opened with a remote, the doors break into four sections. The whole door sits inside of the structure unlike the one piece system. The one piece garage door was the most commonly installed system, but now the sectional is more popular because of its features. The door itself is one piece and when you open it half of the door is outside of the garage and the other half is inside. If you have any more Garage Door Question please send us a message.
