In the previous blog, we discussed some of the most popular garage door styles. But as a trusted provider of garage door replacement in Salt Lake County, Affordable Garage Door Repair is well-versed in all sorts of models. Let’s take a look at some alternative options that range from being steeped in tradition to pushing the envelope forward.

Tilt-Up Garage Doors

There are a few different types of tilt-up garage doors:

Tilt-up Canopy

A pivoting hinge mechanism lifts the door upward so it can slide back parallel to your garage’s ceiling. A bit of the door extends past the home’s facade when the door is open.

Tilt-up Retractable

Similar to a canopy garage door, except no part of the garage door protrudes from the home when it’s open. 

While sectional garage doors are the more traditional style prevalent for American residences, tilt-up garage doors are an increasingly popular choice for homeowners looking for a unique touch.

Slide to the Side Garage Doors

This aptly named door operates just like you might imagine it does — by bending to one side of the garage, and sitting alongside the wall when “open.” This style is, admittedly, a bit old school (or a classic, depending on which way you look at it), as they were initially used for garages with limited headroom. These doors don’t require balancing strings and have a built-in retractable motor for automated operation — no ceiling-mounted operator needed!

Side Hinged Garage Doors

Also known as swing-out, these look like large barn doors when they open and close. These doors don’t have section hinges, allowing the doors to swing open rather than move up or even to the side. You can customize the hinges to have the doors swing either inwards or outwards from your home.
