When considering a new garage or shed door, one of the most important considerations is that the door should securely lock and be hard for intruders to break into. While aesthetics are important, security should be the highest priority. Another important factor is ease of use. While you want the door to be secure, once it has been unlocked it should be relatively easy to fully open. There are a variety of mechanisms available, and you should test a few different types to find what works best for your situation.
