Garage Doors

Doors for the garage come in a number of different types -roller, overhead, sectional overhead, folding and sliding. What you choose will depend on a number of factors -how much space there is for the door(s) in the open position, and whether it needs to be insulated -any garage that is integral with your house should be. Then there is the decision for manually or electrically operated. You should also consider whether any form of glazing is required to throw light into the garage.
If you are thinking of converting a garage, then the Energy Saving Trust publish a useful guide on Energy Efficient Garage Conversions.
