If you’re looking to invest in a new garage door, side hinged garage doors should logically be your first choice. Not only are they easier to manipulate than ‘up-and-over’ garage doors are, side hinged doors require a lot less effort and are more convenient for single-person access.

For those after convenience, investing in side hinged garage doors for your home is a sound decision. Thanks to technology, side hinged door panels can be fashioned out of steel, timber, or even fiberglass. With the added bonus of available insulated options, side hinged garage doors are just as energy efficient as any other type of garage door.

Switching from manual to electrically operating your garage door is considerably easier with the side hinged design. Since the door mechanism is fairly basic, you’ll find that automated side hinged doors open more fluidly than the up-and-over designs. Side hinged garage doors also offer more in terms of aesthetic design, with the variation of the classic half-split design into the 1/3-2/3-split giving considerably more to choose from.
