The most common garage door is undoubtedly the up-and-over with roller and sectional varieties becoming ever more popular. But what about side-hinged doors? Why would a customer choose one of these? Here are a few reasons why:

Easy to open
Up-and-over garage doors can be heavy to lift and the strain caused by opening one of them can even cause injury. Side hinged doors are like a front door, they are easy to open.

Easy frequent access
Many people use their garage for other purposes than just storing a vehicle. Their garage is their office, workshop, games room, utility room or store for tools, bikes, freezers, etc and therefore access is required on a daily basis and, as discussed above, they are easier to open and you only need to open one side to gain entry.

Easy tradition
Side-hinged garage doors give homeowners of period homes an attractive replacement option that is in keeping with their properties. These doors come in a range of materials, colours and styles to ensure a garage door is complementary feature rather than an eyesore.
