What Are the Different Types of Garage Doors? Pt. 2

In the previous blog, we discussed some of the most popular garage door styles. But as a trusted provider of garage door replacement in Salt Lake County, Affordable Garage Door Repair is well-versed in all sorts of models. Let’s take a look at some alternative options that range from being steeped in tradition to pushing the envelope forward.

Tilt-Up Garage Doors

There are a few different types of tilt-up garage doors:

Tilt-up Canopy

A pivoting hinge mechanism lifts the door upward so it can slide back parallel to your garage’s ceiling. A bit of the door extends past the home’s facade when the door is open.

Tilt-up Retractable

Similar to a canopy garage door, except no part of the garage door protrudes from the home when it’s open. 

While sectional garage doors are the more traditional style prevalent for American residences, tilt-up garage doors are an increasingly popular choice for homeowners looking for a unique touch.

Slide to the Side Garage Doors

This aptly named door operates just like you might imagine it does — by bending to one side of the garage, and sitting alongside the wall when “open.” This style is, admittedly, a bit old school (or a classic, depending on which way you look at it), as they were initially used for garages with limited headroom. These doors don’t require balancing strings and have a built-in retractable motor for automated operation — no ceiling-mounted operator needed!

Side Hinged Garage Doors

Also known as swing-out, these look like large barn doors when they open and close. These doors don’t have section hinges, allowing the doors to swing open rather than move up or even to the side. You can customize the hinges to have the doors swing either inwards or outwards from your home.

The owner of this company is amazing. He is so caring and really wants the best for his customers. It is nice to find a company who really stands behind their work. I would use this company again.

Wow! My mom called them out for some work, and ultimately got a new garage door motor. She’d had some confusion about a her purchase, the work that was done, etc. The people at Affordable Garage Door were proactive about ensuring that she not only understood but was completely satisfied with the overall experience. They took time to explain the mechanisms of the door, how the new motor worked, what we can do to keep it well maintained either on our own or through them, and made sure to leave us feeling confident overall. Highly recommend!

I had a very old garage motor that I knew was on borrowed time. It finally broke and I called Affordable Garage. They sent Jason out to me who confirmed that I needed an upgrade. He gave me options with different prices that I felt were very fair. Jason was super nice and very professional. He did an awesome job and now I don’t have to worry about my garage going out on me. Thanks Jason!

Scott came out and an outstanding job updating me about my garage door and did an awesome job fixing my garage door! Definitely recommend this company for your upcoming needs!!
