The Benefits Of Stacking Doors


Selecting the right door for your garage can be a daunting task. The process can seem overwhelming since there are many options. You must also consider materials, price, impacts on your home and longevity. Remember that the addition of an entry to your garage improves the value of your home. Therefore, the type of door you choose must be compatible with the overall architectural features of your home. One of the most common selections for garage doors is stacker doors. Stacker doors are always behind one another when sliding along. For example, a 6-panel stacker door has two stackers fixed on either end. Some stackers slide in both directions, a compatible feature with many house designs. This article explores the advantages of stacking doors.

Easy Access

Stacker doors allow you to access the outside with ease. Garages should have convenient doors that enable easy access for anyone outside and inside. If you need to pack your vehicle or move huge items into the garage, the stacker door provides enough space. Having the freedom to move items in and out of the garage makes your life easy, especially if you have a project running in the garage or use it for parking. 


You can easily add a flyscreen or security screen to prevent bugs, birds and insects from entering your garage. Adding flyscreens to the stacker door is also a deterrent against intruders. The flyscreen has no environmental impact since it simply prevents bugs from entering the garage. In addition, you can choose from a list of flyscreen options that helps you improve the aesthetic quality of your home. Such improvements are attractive, and you may want these attributes when you need to sell your house. 

Natural Light

Having natural light in your garage encourages you to get in there and pursue projects. Stacking doors allow sufficient natural light into the garage and improve the house's appeal. The entrance takes up more perimeter than any other opening on the garage walls. Therefore, you can install a door that exploits the advantages of natural light. Natural light helps you conserve energy used in your home. The light also enhances the quality of the garage space and may improve the value of your home. 


Space is a significant consideration when selecting a garage door. Stacking doors consume minimal space when opened. The stacker door can remain locked on one section and open on another. You can roll back the door and stack its parts closely as you open, thereby reducing the space required. In addition, the view from inside the garage makes it appear spacious than usual. The sense of space provided by stacker doors is a great architectural attribute that improves the quality of your home's aesthetics. 

Stacked doors provide easy access to your garage, flyscreen options, natural light and a sense of space.

Contrary to popular belief, garage doors do not have to be boring. They can be super colorful or unique designs. One thing I really like is garage doors that remind me of the great outdoors. To that end, I love garage doors with vinyl stickers on them depicting the outdoors, and I also love doors reminiscent of old barn doors.
