Garage Door Styles for Queensland Homes

10 August 2021

Looking to buy a new garage door for your Queensland home? Picking the right option isn't easy. Not only is it vital to find a garage door style to suit the look of your home, it also needs to offer the functionality you require. On top of that, Queensland brings heat and freak weather in equal measures - and you need a garage door that can stand the test of a strong storm. Don't worry, though - we've got you covered. In this article, we'll explore the 2 types of garage doors that are ideal for Queensland homes.

1. Sectional Garage Doors

Keen to make the most of your garage space? Look no further than sectional garage doors. Sometimes known as “panel” doors, sectional garage doors are designed to save space by lifting upwards and resting parallel with the garage ceiling. This is different from traditional tilting garage doors that lift outwards and can eat into your drive space. Instead of being made up of a single sheet of material, sectional garage doors, as the name suggests, are made up of segmented panels. These doors can be customized to fit almost any design of garage.

3 benefits of sectional garage doors for Queensland homes:

  • A strong design and bottom seal to protect your garage contents when wind and thunderstorms hit.
  • Convenience easily automate your garage door to open and close at a push of a button.
  • Clever design repair one panel when required rather than the whole door and save space inside and outside the garage.

2. Roller Doors

Rolling overhead garage doors do a similar job to sectional garage doors by opening vertically whilst rolling up onto a cylinder over the garage entrance, instead of resting on the underside of the ceiling. 

Rolling overhead garage doors are available to withstand the cyclonic conditions Northern Queensland face. As they are hard-wearing and protect the contents of your garage from the strong winds you may experience.
