There are both residential and commercial garage doors.

Usually residential doors are broken down into sections and when open are parallel to the ground. Another common type of residential garage door is the tilt up door.

A Tilt up door is all one piece and just like the name implies tilts up along tracks when the door is opened. A tilt up garage door is also parallel to the ground when it is open, but requires a little more room in which to operate, because the door moves up and out, away from the garage when it is motion.

Commercial garage doors may not be for garages at all,

but attached to the walls of buildings such as in warehouses or the backs of retail stores. These are usually roll up doors and they are often adjacent to loading docks.

A roll up door has many sections, depending on its height and rolls up around a bar at the top of the door opening. That means that the track that the door operates in is entirely different than that of a residential door. It has no horizontal portion of track.

Garage doors are everywhere. They are found in people’s homes, farms, repair shops, storage facilities and car repair shops.

You can buy a garage door through a local garage door company, on the Internet and even at the big box retain home improvement stores and discount membership clubs.

Most garage door openers are mounted to the ceiling of the garage. By a push of the button from a box that is mounted inside or outside of your garage you can open or close your garage door with ease.

Garage door opener companies have made it even easier to open or close your garage. They provide wireless remotes so you can open your door from your car as you approach your driveway.
