What’s the Difference between Tilt-Up & Sectional Garage Doors?


The sectional garage door is ubiquitous: it’s easy, widely-available, convenient, and reliable. Almost everyone has a neighbor with a sectional garage door, if they don’t have one themselves. In contrast, we most often see tilt-up, or single-panel, garage doors on older homes with tiny garages. But that’s not all they are – and they do have a place on modern garages as well. Besides visual appeal, there are pros and cons to both kinds of overhead garage door:
