6 Advantages of Roller-Shutter Garage Doors
Homes seem to be shrinking in the UK and space is at a premium more than ever. In fact, new-builds in this country are the smallest in Europe.
As homes get smaller, homeowners are trying to squeeze as much useable space as possible out of each area of the home, including their garage.
For that reason, roller-shutter garage doors make an excellent choice when trying to maximize space. But at Easy-Roll, we know this is not their only benefit! To help you decide if this type of garage door is right for your home, we have rounded up some of their main advantages.
1. Increased Storage Space
Make the most out of your space by choosing the right doors. If you are re-designing your garage or use your garage partially for storage, you can utilise a ceiling storage rack in the space where a traditional up-and-over garage door would go when it's open. With roller-shutter doors, the slats roll around each other. This means you will be able to park closer to the door, leaving additional floor space for something other than your car.
These doors are structurally sound, very strong, and come with built-in security features. Whether you go with steel or aluminium, you get to enjoy the same level of security.
Automated doors for the garage offer additional security as they work using a remote control. They can even be programmed for vacation mode, where they cannot be opened at all. Another option is a temporary guest password, so you don’t have to give out your regular code when giving access to someone else.
Whether your garage door is automated or not, it is easy to handle and requires little effort to open.
If it is automated, it opens at the push of a button. You don’t even need to get out of your car to open the door. Raining? Snowing? Drive right in and keep dry while you bring things in from the car.
4. Protection from the Elements
Roller shutters keep your garage and car protected from the harsh winter weather and the excessive heat and sun of hot summers.
They often come with a fire protection rating. This means the shutter is built to withstand fire for a certain amount of time and helps to slow its spread.
Roller-shutter doors are highly customisable. As they come in a variety of styles and colours, you can choose according to the architectural style of your home. They therefore increase curb appeal and are appropriate for any size and shape garage. To make sure your garage doors are perfectly suited to your home, Easy-Roll custom-fits every door.
Keep the cold air out in the winter and the hot air out in the summer, saving you money on your utility bills.
Well insulated doors will help you manage your stress levels. They reduce outside noise and commotion. Since the insulation works both ways, you get to use your garage for band practice, as a workshop or a place to entertain guests until late without worrying about your neighbours complaining.
