I requested someone to come out to install a keypad and adjust the motor mechanics on my garage door. They quoted me a price over the phone and we set up an appointment for the next day. Two technicians came out.
The most obvious benefit of modern glass garage doors is their ability to let in natural light.
Sure, cut out window panels on other doors let in some light, but a full glass garage door is on another level.
The seams of the horizontal panels are on flexible hinges. This allows the door to slide into the open position, suspended from the ceiling, without taking up any space in front of the garage as it rises.
Garage doors have come a long way over the years: manual roll-up to automatic door openers, single-layer steel to insulated multi-layers in various materials and simple coverings to dramatic, visual designs.
