What are the major kinds of Gold Coast garage door options ?
Two of the most popular options would be the roller doors and the sectional doors. Both of these kinds roll directly upwards and fold near the ceiling, conserving the most space possible. These types are the easiest to maintain and they last for a long time. They are also the strongest kind.
Other doors might have a ‘novel’ appeal, but are far less safe. At MTD, we offer the strongest and most reliable products – sectional and rollups. And we have a wide range of options under both of these categories to suit all preferences.

What types of garage doors can I choose on the Gold Coast?
This type of door is designed to keep your garage, vehicle, and belongings safe whether you’re at home or heading to Coolangatta beach – but there is a range of ways to achieve this goal.
It’s easy to assume all types are the same, but this can leave you with a product that isn’t suited to your Gold Coast home, is not practical in your space, or is flat out a safety risk. Different doors unlock their own style as well as functionality, so a little homework can ensure you find the right door to meet your needs.
In residential settings, they typically come in three types:
A roller door, as the name suggests, rolls on a set of tracks and around an installed’ barrel’. This is the classic Australian door seen up and down Queensland, with the mechanism imitating a carpet that’s rolled into a cylinder shape that sits above your garage entrance. As a practical and durable door, there’s a reason this is our most popular product.
Sectional doors are a more modern innovation, offering durability and aesthetic advantages that can be used in areas with limited space. A sectional door is divided into multiple parts (typically 4 or 5panels) connected by hinges. When you open or close your garage, each section slides up to sit under the garage ceiling by swinging upwards instead of out. At MTD we offer a range of stylish sectional doors including Colorbond, Timbalook timber-alterative, smooth panel series, and more.
The mechanism of the tilt doors is in the name – it tilts up and outwards when opened. This type of door is constructed from one single panel that swings outwards to open. Although this design is not suited in all settings, it is often used in custom door designs for standalone Gold Coast homes with ample room.
At MTD we offer the strongest and most durable options across sectional and roller types. While tilt doors may have been popular in the past, they don’t provide your GC home with the security you need.
Benefits of Upgrading your Gold Coast Garage Doors
You already know how valuable it is to keep your garage and home safe, but have you considered upgrading your current door?
They are designed to last between 15 and 30 years, but there is a range of factors unique to Gold Coast living that can speed up degradation and damage. Salt air corrosion and accidental damage are two of the most destructive forces on your door. The following benefits are unlocked whether you’re installing a new door, or upgrading an old door:
Even if your door appears stable, malfunctions to your door’s mechanisms can leave your home vulnerable to break-ins. We’re proud to support our Gold Coast community with installation, repairs, and maintenance that ensure your home and belongings are safe.

What are my design options?
Living on the Gold Coast means enjoying a relaxed, beachside lifestyle. It’s no wonder many of our customers ask about the design options for their garage door. While these doors were once utilitarian and drab, focusing only on security, modern doors can be used to complement your home and align with your style.
Our doors come in a range of premium-grade steel to suit your needs. From 0.6mm thick Colorbond steel in a wide range of colours, to ‘Timbalook’ doors that replicate the natural timber aesthetic with the strength of steel, we’ve got an option that’s every bit as eye-catching as it is enduring.
How long does it take to install a new door for your garage?
We understand the importance of keeping disruptions to a minimum, which is why our experienced team strives to complete the installation between 4 to 6 hours.
The exact timeframe of your installation will depend on a few variables, including:
To help cut down on installation time, we’ll ask you about the exact measurements of your door as well as any information about your existing door. Older doors may require more disassembly, but well provide a full timeline breakdown to help you plan your movements on installation day.

Frequently Asked Questions About Garage Doors on the Gold Coast
If you’re leaving your car in an exposed carport or garage space, it’s common to want to protect it. We offer a range of innovative solutions to help you protect your vehicle, even if space is at a premium. Our sectional doors require minimal headroom and collapse your door up into the roof, giving you maximum value even in a small space.
We don’t recommend you attempt installation on your own. Not only does this approach leave you at risk of injury, but the wrong installation can lead to a door that doesn’t open/close properly, or requires expensive repairs. From connecting the springs to wiring an automatic garage, there are plenty of challenges that are best left to the pros.
As an added bonus, hiring experts means you don’t have to lift a finger. We’ll disassemble your old door, install your new door, and remove any excess parts and materials too.
All of our Gold Coast garage doors and made to measure, so you’ll never be served a ‘one size fits all’ product. As a reference, a single door is 2100mm high x 2400 mm wide, with a double door 2100mm high x 4800mm wide.
