Many homeowners are choosing to steer away from the single panel garage door as the sectional door becomes more popular. There are still many reasons to choose the single panel door, though. Our team at Neighborhood Garage Door Repair has listed some of the reasons that may appeal to you when it comes to choosing a single panel garage door.
Affordable Garage Doors
Your budget would probably be the most compelling argument for a side panel garage door. As far as being inexpensive, this type of door is the least to buy and also install. There are two types, canopy and retractable, and of the two, a canopy is the least expensive.
With all the options available on the market, the side panel door can make for such a nice change for your home. That is why this is the most appealing door for many homeowners. It can really add some value to your curb appeal and increase your property value.
More often than not, a burglar or thief will break into a garage to gain entry into the home. Most of the single panel doors have multiple locking points making them the hardest for a thief to break into. This can often be a deterrent for a would-be home invader.
Many homeowners choose the most secure garage doors due to theft. The entire idea of having an attached home garage is for the safety and security of your family and your personal belongings. Choose the best type of door for your family to be safe and secure as well as keep your property from being damaged or stolen.
With the availability of ranges to be fitted to almost any height or width, the side panel door is available for many openings. While they cannot go into different shaped, garage door openings, they can be made as tall or wide as you need. They can also be fitted to work with garage door openers as they are a heavy-made door.
With the single panel garage door, it is less heavy than sectional doors making them easier to be lifted manually. A garage door opener does add an extra expense to your budget and might be something to think about when choosing a new door. With an opener, there is also the remote or keypad as well.
Unlike sectional doors, you can park your vehicle a little closer to the garage entrance as the side panel doesn’t take up much space. When the door is open, it is retracted all the way to the roof space making it less obtrusive to look at. Of course, again, there is also still the added benefit of being the most affordable garage door.
