What is a Single Panel Garage Door?

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. 

Visually Appealing 

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. 

Other Advantages 

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.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
