Sectional doors are one of the most popular types of garage doors that are relatively new on the market today. Sectional doors are formed from a series of panels that slide up and over your head when opened. They are typically constructed out of either steel, aluminium, copper or polythene.

Your garage door may be the last thing you think of when it comes to home maintenance, probably because it’s easy to overlook them due to their reliable automatic opening and closing. Yet, the amount of times we’ve had to repair or replace a garage door because of an issue that could have been rectified through regular maintenance checks is astonishing! 
The ease of automatic doors makes it easy to forget their maintenance, regardless of whether you use them for personal or business use.
