Their technician quickly diagnosed the issue as worn-out garage door springs and replaced them with top-quality new springs. The difference is night and day - my door now operates smoothly and quietly. No more cringing at that awful spring noise! Their professional service was worth every penny."

Types of Garage Doors We Install

At Garage Door Repair Universal City, we offer a wide range of garage door options to suit your specific needs and preferences. Some of the most popular types of garage doors we install include:

Sectional Garage Doors

Sectional garage doors are among the most popular options for homeowners. These doors consist of several horizontal panels that are connected by hinges, allowing the door to bend and roll up overhead when opened. Sectional doors are available in a variety of materials, including steel, wood, aluminum, and fiberglass, offering excellent versatility in terms of aesthetics and durability. They also provide superior insulation, helping to keep your garage comfortable and energy-efficient.

Roll-Up Garage Doors

Roll-up garage doors, also known as coiling doors, are an excellent choice for properties with limited overhead space. These doors consist of a series of narrow slats that roll up into a compact coil above the door opening when raised. Roll-up doors are typically made of steel or aluminum, making them highly durable and low-maintenance. They are often used in commercial settings, such as warehouses and storage facilities, but can also be a practical choice for residential garages with unique space constraints.

Slide to the Side Garage Doors

Slide to the side garage doors, as the name suggests, open by sliding horizontally to one side of the garage opening. These doors are an ideal solution for garages with low headroom or when you want to maximize the vertical space inside your garage. Slide to the side doors are available in a range of materials and designs, allowing you to choose a door that complements your property’s architecture and style.

Side-Hinged Garage Doors

Side-hinged garage doors swing open like traditional doors, with hinges on either side of the door opening. These doors offer a classic, timeless appearance and are often chosen for their aesthetic appeal. Side-hinged doors are commonly made of wood or steel and can be customized with decorative elements such as windows, panels, and hardware. They are a popular choice for detached garages or for homeowners who prefer a more traditional look.

Tilt-Up/Up and Over Retractable Garage Doors

Tilt-up, also known as up and over retractable garage doors, consist of a single panel that tilts outward and then slides up into the garage ceiling when opened. These doors are a space-saving solution, as they don’t require any additional room outside the garage for opening. Tilt-up doors are available in a variety of materials and designs, making them a versatile choice for many homeowners. They are also relatively easy to operate and maintain, making them a practical option for everyday use.

In addition to these main types of garage doors, we also offer custom garage door solutions tailored to your unique requirements. We also offer a variety of materials, such as steel, wood, aluminum, and fiberglass, to ensure you find the perfect garage door to complement your property’s style and meet your functional requirements.
