We don’t always consider all the factors when deciding on the perfect garage door. There are some obvious features that we are drawn to such as price and time to install, however a cheap door that can be fitted in a rush isn’t going to do the job or get you a reliable product that will last for years to come. 

We’ve put together a useful article on what features are essential when purchasing your new garage door as well as the best garage door to invest in.


Thermal efficiency with a roller garage door

If you’re looking to convert your garage into a room, then a key part is having it warm enough to sit comfortably in, both for you and your guests. Whether it’s a games room, a gym or a cinema you want to be able to regulate the temperature for your needs. 

Roller garage doors are perfect for this as they are made with CFC-free foam to ensure no warm air gets out and no drafts are present. Keeping you cool in the summer if you have air-con fitted, and warm in the winter once heated. You can also benefit from having a thermally efficient door when your garage is connected to your house to ensure no further heat is lost.



Sound insulating garage doors

Roller garage doors are also better at sound-insulating than other garage doors such as a side-hinged swing door. This is because they are made to provide a tight seal with no gaps to lock in heat and sound. So if you are using your garage as a spare room, you won’t disturb the neighbours. 

Sound insulation is also great if you have family members with a different sleep schedule or don’t enjoy the noise coming from your garage. So get that garage band you always dreamed of together and play to your heart’s content!


Strong materials used for durability

Having a strong garage door is essential, roller garage doors are manufactured from extremely strong aluminium, this ensures the doors last for many years without wear and tear. This helps them tackle extreme weather conditions and changing temperatures, as well as being resistant to corrosion. 


Easy-opening doors

One feature to consider when purchasing a garage door is for the opening process to be simple and easy. Having an aluminium door also means it is lightweight and flexible, making the rolling process smooth and effortless. 

Garolla’s garage doors are electric too, so this means there really isn’t any heavy lifting required. You can open our garage doors from the comfort of your car using our uniquely designed remotes.



Security enhanced for your peace of mind

Protection for your home and belongings is key to owning and storing items in your garage. Another reason why roller garage doors are the best type of garage doors is because of their added security benefits. 

Not only do they contain a seal, but they also contain slats kept in place with high-strength end locks and a patented auto-locking system. This adds difficulty for intruders to move the door out of place. 

Due to the nature of roller garage door design, there is no visible opening that can throw off intruders. A sectional garage door can also provide security due to its robust panels for reliable, strong protection. Garolla’s garage doors are also designed to high standards, and you can visibly see this. This makes them a further deterrent to threats.

The best type of garage door is one that is made specifically for your garage. You can’t settle for generic sizing when choosing your garage door. Having a perfectly fitted garage door is essential, not only does it add to the thermal efficiency of your garage but also the security.
