Types of Garage Doors

Garage doors come in all different sizes and functions, these are the four basic types to choose from: Swing out, swing up, roll up, slide to the side.

Roll Up

The name says it all. This garage door type uses a track system to roll the door up and along the garage ceiling, where it’s out of the way and out of sight. Due to their convenience, roll up garage doors are the most popular.

Swing Up

The swing up style garage door is much less common than roll up. Similar to slide up doors, garage doors that swing up are made up of just a single panel and give you the benefit of increased space.

Swing out

These classically designed doors are great for a period and country-style homes. They are carefully crafted and utilize state of the art technology to ensure they are long-lasting and reliable. They open like French doors and generally hang from hinges. This type of garage door tends to be more energy efficient due to how well they seal at openings.


The sliding-style garage door can be a great compliment to just about any home. These doors can also save homeowners valuable space. A swing out garage door can take up space in front of the garage doors. Sliding garage doors are a great option if your home has lots of space around the garage door opening. Most customers choose them due to their space-saving structure.


The next step is choosing the perfect garage door style for your home. This all depends on the look and characteristics of your home.



Wood gives your home a certain charm and authentic appeal that other materials simply cannot mimic. This type of door can be made into whatever size you need, so it fits perfectly for your home. While these doors will look beautiful in your home, keep in mind that they will need frequent repainting and refinishing if you want to keep them looking new and fresh.


Don’t want to deal with a lot of maintenance? Go with metal over wood garage doors. Steel is our most popular option because it is tough and durable, yet affordable.


This garage door type is sturdy, rigged and rustproof, but will fetch you a higher price tag than steel. You can go the route of less expensive aluminum doors, which will have aluminum frames with panels made up of other materials.

Aluminum is a great choice due to its light-weight characteristics. Because of this, it will be less dangerous and easier on your operating system.
