There are three basic types of electronic garage doors: chain drive, screw drive and belt drive. Most electronic systems have ceiling-mounted electric motors as their cores, linked to the doors they’re operating through a mechanism responsible for opening or closing doors. Another type, the torsion system, does not need a chain, belt, or screw; unlike other designs, a torsion-operated garage door does not require overhead tracks and a ceiling-mounted box. Some systems can be added to existing doors; thus, it’s often not necessary to replace the old one. However, there may still be a need to modify the opening mechanism of the existing door so that it can accommodate an electric opener.

The traditional pair of doors still works out as the most economic option, and they are easy to maintain for elegant homes. Sliding doors, on the other hand, can cost more money upfront, but they are easy to use and require little in the way of maintenance. Most sliding components will be sealed with a permanent protective coating, so painting is not required. In addition, many sliding door models have insulated panels that help keep the garage warm. Side-hinge garage doors would fare better for houses since they are simple and easy to maintain, while sliding garage doors would be ideal for commercial spaces because of their long-term durability and reliability.
