10 Good Reasons to Buy a Roller Garage Door
It may sound obvious but nevertheless true, roller shutter garage doors are remote controlled just like your TV and therefore they are much more convenient and easier to use than traditional garage doors. A garage door is a rare purchase so it makes sense to buy what is “current” and what will bode well for the future.
In recent years the cost of roller garage doors has fallen significantly in real terms. Today the price difference between good quality roller shutter and traditional garage door is usually just a few hundred pounds and therefore you could conclude that the benefits of the roller garage door outweigh the price difference.
Roller garage doors have cleverly designed locking mechanisms built into the roller box that engage automatically. There are no exposed locks than can be broken or tampered with making it more difficult for opportunist thieves to break into your garage.
4. SPACE SAVING
Roller shutter garage doors do not “swing out” into the drive like traditional up and over garage doors. The vertically rising mechanism allows you to park your car right up to the door helping to maximise the space on your drive.
When a roller shutter door opens it “coils” into a box above the door inside the garage and therefore does not need any frames to hold it in place when in the open. This is the most compact type of door available and maximises the width, height and ceiling space of your garage.
6. AN INVESTMENT IN YOUR HOME
In many homes the most prominent feature and the first thing that people notice is the garage door. A good quality and stylish roller shutter garage door will not only transform how your home looks but it will also add desirability and therefore value to your home.
7. LOWER COST OF OWNERSHIP
Garages can be a huge “weak point” for winter draughts and cold. Good quality roller garage doors incorporate high density insulated lath and draught reducing features. This contributes towards increasing the resistance to colder temperatures entering the garage and main house helping to reduce heating bills.
8. ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY
For exactly the same reasons that the cost of ownership is lower, the thermally efficient design of a good quality roller garage door will retain the heat in your garage helping to make a positive contribution to the environment.
9. SOUND INSULATING
All our roller garage doors have twin walled 19mm thick, high density insulated panels which are designed to be good sound insulators. This is particularly useful for high traffic areas and helps towards better sound insulation entering the garage and potentially the main house.
The sound, draught and heat retention properties of our roller garage doors help to create a quieter and warmer garage making your garage a more versatile space should you decide to use your garage for something other than parking you car.
