Garage Door Types & Styles

Today, there is a wide variety of garage door types and styles to choose from, including roll-ups, sectionals, tilt-up retractable doors, and more. CT Garage Service is here to make things easier for our customers. We have broken down the main types of garage doors so that you can get the perfect door solution for your residential or commercial garage.

Garage doors are basically large doors installed on garages. They can be either automatically or manually operated depending on the application. Automated garage doors are operated by electric motors called garage door openers. A typical residential garage door is large enough to accommodate conventional automobiles. Commercial garage doors, on the other hand, are found in warehouses, storage facilities, mechanical automotive repair shops, among others. Their sizes allow large vehicles such as trucks to pass through with ease. In addition, they are significantly more resistant to scratches and dents.


  • Single-layer garage doors

    This is a basic garage door option that offers great value and durability. These doors are often made from steel and require very little maintenance.

  • Double-layer garage doors

    These double-layer doors combine a layer of vinyl-coated and environment-friendly polystyrene insulation with another layer of heavy-duty steel. Double-layer garage doors are known to operate silently and are more energy-efficient.

  • Triple-layer garage doors

    If you are looking to get a garage door solution that offers ultra-quiet operation and superior energy efficiency, consider installing triple-layer garage doors! Comprising three layers: a heavy-duty steel exterior, polyurethane or polystyrene insulation, and another layer of interior steel; these garage doors are extremely durable.
    When it comes to style, modern garage doors can feature a wide array of decorative hardware, such as straps, knobs, hinges, and handles. In addition, windows can be installed to enhance the garage door’s appearance and allow light into the garage. That’s not all though; one can even opt for textured garage doors that capture the look of natural wood while delivering the no-maintenance benefits of steel.

Awesome Service!!
My husband and I searched for a few companies for garage door openers and we decided to go with CT Garage Services. We were not disappointed! The technicians (Luigi and John) arrived on time and were great getting the job done. They were both respectful and knowledgeable. We also want to thank David for his advise on choosing the right garage door opener. Would highly recommend this company.
Margarita Ortiz
This was my first experience having a garage door opener installed and I couldn't be more pleased with this company. From my first call for installation and cost information I was impressed with the curtesy and professionalism of the office staff. The installation took place on the date scheduled with a call in advance to notify me that they were on their way. The installation team was kind and courteous and did an excellent job. I would not hesitate to recommend this company.
Linda Dente
I have never used a garage company before, but after this experience, CT Garage Service will be the FIRST and ONLY company that I will use. The professionalism from start to finish was second to none. Rose was wonderful in contacting me with times available and was very courteous. Steven and Eddy came to my house on time and began to thoroughly explain to me what was needed to be done. They carefully went through all of the necessary work to be done along with the associated costs. They were professional every step of the way. After completing the work, Steve and Eddy cleaned up and made sure that I understood everything that they had done. I would highly recommend this company, without reservation, to anyone that needs a garage company with professional service.

CT Garage Service replaced my old wooden garage doors with new, insulated steel doors. The technicians were very timely, educated me on my options for doors prior to committing to one or the other and answered all of my questions with ease. They worked with my budget and provided a lifetime guarantee for the doors. Best of all, the pricing provided by CT Garage Service is far better than many other companies I spoke to; including the major "overhead door" type companies. Install was on time, and the finished product looks better than I expected. Do not hesitate to use CT Garage Service, they will exceed your expectations.

Professional operation all the way. Our Installer Steve couldn't have been more helpful. Steve inspected our current garage door setup from 1987 and quickly determined it was done for. Steve then patiently went through all the options/pricing available and helped us in making a decision we could afford and a product we were happy with. Everything went as promised. For the install, Steve was on time, professional, and a pleasure to deal with. Love the new doors and they operate perfectly. Ct. Garage Service is fortunate to have such a dedicated and highly qualified individual in their employ. Highly recommend Ct. Garage Service.

Ewelina Ledas
Connecticut Garage Door Service has the best service in CT. I had an issue where a friend backed into my garage door and left a pretty gnarly dent in the door. Before I knew it they where over my house quoting me out and had a new garage door panel installed within the week. Highly would recommend Connecticut Garage Door Service.
Kyle M'Sadoques

Linda Tehan
We had a great experience with a repair job. And we hope to have them back to replace our garage doors next year.
Ron Lecours
This company was amazing to deal with. So professional & they were the only company willing to work with me regarding the situation that I was in. The tech's were amazing and it totally blew me away when they arrived because they were just rear-ended on the highway. Even after the accident they still showed up. Luckily neither of them were hurt. DEFINITELY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!
