Garage doors can be made of a variety of materials: wood, steel, aluminum, fiberglass, and vinyl, among others. Which garage door material you choose will depend on a variety of factors:
- What kind of “look” are you going for? Your garage door is a very large feature on your home, so you want to be sure that it fits with your design plans.

- How secure do you want your garage door to be? Steel, for example, is extremely inflexible and better positioned to stand up to harsh weather conditions. Aluminum is easier to bend and dent than steel, but it may also be less expensive to repair.

What are the Different Types of Garage Doors? Which One is Best?
There are several different types of garage doors to choose from. The best one will depend on your specific needs, your budget, and how often you plan to be in and out of your home via the garage door; however, there are several things to consider. You’ll need to take into consideration what you want your garage door to look like as well as the space you have available in your garage–including what space is already in use for storage, since you may have to clean out your garage to install certain types of doors.
Sectional Garage Doors
Sectional garage doors are made up of panel sections that bend over the curved portion of a track as they raise and lower. Sectional garage doors sit flat on their rails close to the ceiling when they are open and lower smoothly to the ground when they’re closed.
Roll-Up Garage Doors
Roll-up garage doors are divided in much smaller pieces than sectional garage doors. They require less clearance, which is perfect for areas with low ceiling height; however, they also appear much more functional, rather than offering aesthetic appeal.
Slide to the Side Doors
These doors, rather than lifting to the ceiling, slide to one side of the garage. They’re ideal for garages without sufficient headroom, but they do make it difficult to store other items along that wall of the garage.
Side-Hinged Garage Doors
Side-hinged garage doors open out from either side of the opening. These garage doors are often made of wood, giving a unique look and feel to your home.
Tilt up canopy doors raise and lower in one piece, which means they have fewer moving parts than other garage doors. These doors do extend outside the house when the door is open.
