What Are Overhead Doors?  

Overhead doors are garage doors that open upward from the ground. Overhead doors may swing or roll upward, have manual or automatic rollers, and single or multiple panels. Overhead garage doors are popular for residential and commercial properties. The most common businesses that use overhead doors include: 

  • Car washes
  • Warehouses
  • Commercial storefronts
  • Emergency buildings (fire or police stations)
  • Storage buildings

Overhead doors function the same as any other garage door. They are meant to protect what’s inside from intruders and nature. 

Types and Styles of Overhead Garage Doors: 

There are numerous types and styles of overhead doors available. The choices may be overwhelming, but they don’t have to be! Some of the most common door styles include the following: 

  • Sectional 
  • Aluminum glass overhead doors
  • Insulated and non-insulated roller service doors
  • Security grilles
  • High-performance doors
  • High-speed metal doors
  • Fabric and rubber roller doors
  • Fire-rated doors 
  • Counter doors or shutters

Perimeter Garage Doors can help you pick the most appropriate style and type for your building. Keep reading to learn more about the three most popular styles: 

Single-Panel Garage Doors 

A single-panel garage door uses one piece of material across the entire door. Single-panel doors come in various materials and open upwards on an overhead track that keeps the door horizontal when open. 

Sectional Garage Doors 

A more traditional garage door is a sectional or multi-panel door. These doors have four paneled sections that roll upward on a rounded track until they are parallel to the ceiling. Most current garage doors are sectional doors. 

Roller Overhead Garage Doors 

Roller garage doors are most commonly used in commercial buildings. Roller doors do just that; they roll up into the door frame, eliminating the need for an overhead track. Roller overhead doors are heavy-duty and durable. 

Materials Used for Overhead Doors: 

Overhead doors come in several materials. Each property has unique garage door needs, so one material isn’t necessarily better than another. The most commonly used materials for overhead doors include the following: 

  • Steel 
  • Aluminum  
  • Glass 
  • Fabric 
  • Rubber
  • Wood 

It’s critical you speak to a professional if you are unsure of the best material for your building. Perimeter Garage Doors would love to help you choose! Call us at 770-809-9793 to speak to one of our qualified team members. 

Important Considerations for Commercial Overhead Doors: 

Numerous factors play into choosing the best overhead doors for a commercial building. When looking for new doors, consider the following: 

Insulation 

An insulated garage door can help control heating and cooling bills. A garage door with a higher R-rating is more costly upfront but saves business owners tons of money over time. Energy costs are rising, so consider investing in this valuable feature for your overhead doors. 

Airtightness 

Some styles have more airtightness than others, which can impact air filtration. This, in turn, impacts the door’s thermal resistance. Overhead doors with a properly designed thermal break can help with energy savings. 

Outer Skin Thickness 

A thicker outer skin enhances the safety of the door. It strengthens the door panel and creates a thicker layer to prevent punctures. Overhead doors come in various materials, so the thickness of each will depend on that. 

Panel Design 

A poorly designed panel can reduce the safety and effectiveness of the door. Hiring a professional to design and install your overhead doors is highly recommended to prevent poor designs that leave the panels unsupported or ineffective. 

Hardware Components 

Proper hardware is vital if you want the overhead door to function correctly. An overhead door without the appropriate hardware components is dangerous to people, objects, and animals. Improper hardware can also damage the door itself, meaning you would pay additional fees. 

Windows 

Some overhead doors have windows to increase natural light. This is a common design feature, but it is essential to consider the functionality of the overhead door when choosing a style with windows. Is it meant to be a security barrier? Windows should be placed properly to prevent intruders, if so. 

Overhead Doors FAQs: 

Many customers have the same questions about overhead doors. In this FAQ section, please find the answers to those questions to help guide your decision-making for new overhead doors. 

Insulated vs. Non-Insulated: Which Do I Need? 

We will always recommend insulated overhead doors over non-insulated doors. Insulation helps to reduce energy costs. While purchasing an overhead door with thicker insulation is a higher investment, we strongly recommend clients do so to save them money in the long term. 

If you have questions about insulation and R-ratings, Perimeter Garage Doors is happy to answer them. Call us at 770-809-9793 to speak to our team! 

How Much Do Overhead Garage Doors Cost? 

Numerous factors play into the cost of overhead doors. The size, materials used, style, and more are all important considerations when determining the cost. You would need to speak to a professional about the options for an accurate quote. Perimeter Garage Doors is happy to provide a quote; contact us today to get started. 

How Long Does an Overhead Garage Door Last? 

Garage doors last anywhere between 10 and 20 years, with the average being 10 to 15. However, home and business owners can increase the longevity of their overhead doors in many ways. Overhead doors that receive regular maintenance and repair tend to last much longer than those without. 

What Sizes Do Overhead Garage Doors Come In? 

Overhead garage doors come in all sizes. Most materials can be custom-sized to meet the buyer's unique needs. We recommend you speak to a professional before sizing a garage door because we wouldn’t want you to waste money on a garage door that won’t fit. Contact Perimeter Garage Doors at 770-809-9793 today to get help with sizing your new overhead doors.
