Sectional garage doors are not exactly new, but they have been developed drastically and are still viewed as relatively modern, especially when compared to up and over garage doors. That said, not every garage is a perfect fit for sectional garage doors and there is one big reason for this.
Without the right space above the door, there may not be enough room for the sectional panels to fold up, and this is especially true in garages that already make use of headroom, perhaps storing tools, bikes and ladders. If you want a door that uses less space above, a roller shutter, a round the corner door or an up and over door will be better suited, and these all come in a range of styles, sizes and finishes, whilst you can choose between electric and manual operation. So you do get plenty of different variations with all of these types.
