Garage doors for bigger garages. Up-and-over garage doors are one piece doors that swing out and then up, lying parallel to the ceiling. They can be made from steel or wood, but glass reinforced plastic is the most common material used to make them. You need a large space before the garage door (from the ground up and from the top down) to allow the door to freely swing in its horizontal position. If you have a big garage, you should also consider the most traditional (and simplest) style of garage door - the side hung door. They hang from the side, and are basically double doors that lock in the middle.

Spaces larger than this will require tailored fitting. Smaller garages are also catered for in these dimensions, the need for custom manufactured doors only comes to those with extremely large spaces.
Some garage door openers offer heavier steel or a sturdier design. Some garage door openers do not use the steel chain pulley system; they use a screw threaded steel rod that turns to move the garage door up and down. If you are deciding on which type of garage door to purchase keep in mind the differences between wood and metal, the wood doors need to be taken care of just like a deck, you need to stain or paint it so it doesn’t rot, a steel door is easier to maintain. If you decide to get a steel door the main thing to check is that it has been properly prepared to prevent rust.
Converting the garage to other uses certainly makes sense in the case of families with a single car who have two or three-car garages. But when a garage is transformed into an extra living area, the garage door on the part of the garage where the car will be stored will have to be chosen so that it complements the appearance of the remodeled portion of the garage.
