Frequently Asked Questions

There are many garage doors available for installation at Express Garage Door. And some of them are–

  • Sectional garage doors – Each panel of our sectional garage doors is supported by a vertical track, and the edge wheels move as the door opens and closes.
  • Roll-Up Garage Doors – The steel panels of our garage doors get rolled up and inserted into the top of the door’s spring-loaded slide making it more appropriate for smaller garages. 
  • Carriage House Style Garage Doors – Our swing-out garage doors work best with carriage-style garage door designs giving your house a timeless appearance.
  • Tilt-Up Garage Doors – Our tilt-up garage doors tilt up when they open and enter your garage and don’t have any sections, unlike sectional and slide-to-the-side garage doors. They tilt up when they open and enter your garage. 
  • Side-hinged Garage Doors – Our garage doors with side hinges consist of a hinged frame that swings open from the middle, either on the left or right.

  • Chain Drive garage opener – The chain-drive opener is one of the most widely used types of garage door openers which raises your garage door using a metal chain. These garage openers cost between $31.49 and $422 per opener in Fort Worth.
