Roller fences on the other hand also consist of rectangular panels or sections but they are not fixed to a track like the Panel type. This type would roll up like a carpet on the ceiling of the garage. It uses a barrel of the same length as the panels that help in rolling it up thus it is the most important part of the garage fence. Having a broken or rusty barrel would mean a costly garage fence replacement. You can also automate it and it usually has lower maintenance costs than the Panel type. To check if your Roller type garage fences needs repair, put it into manual mode and lift it up half way. It should not creep and rolls up smoothly, but if not you can try cleaning the tracks with a silicone-based spray that you can purchase at most home stores.
Swing Hung fences: swing hung fences closely resemble traditional fences in their appearance, and require much space in the front of the garage to prevent it hitting vehicles etc.
Lastly and the most varied type is the Tilt Type fences. As the name suggests, tilt fences uses a collection of power arms and pulleys to tilt it to one side to allow the car into the garage. It is also highly customizable since it has few mechanisms and usually only uses one panel to lock up your garage. The three main types of tilt fences are: Jamb Type, Track Type, and Counter-weight Type fences.
The jamb type uses a power arm that is attached to a jamb and lifts up the fence outward. It leaves half the fence protruding outside of the garage and needs a little more space in front of the driveway to fully open.
Track type fences on the other hand adds horizontal tracks on top of the garage and gives it a much more easier operation thus this type is the best for adding a garage fence opener.
The cost of a new garage fences may vary from type to provider, depending on what materials were used in their manufacturing.
Before requesting for estimates, a good idea would be to get a better understanding of the types of garage fences available. In that way you're more knowledgeable about the mechanics, functions, durability and costs involved with owning a specific type of garage fence.
