I've had both panel doors and rollup doors. There are pros & cons to both. The panel seal better, the rollup take less space. Both will stand up to hurricanes if properly braced when installed. However, I found out there are 2 styles of rollup doors. There is one where the axle of the roll is at the bottom of the header and leaves a gap at the top big enough for birds to fly in when it is rolled down. You really don't want that. You want the door to seal at the top as well so the roll has to be mounted higher. The rollup require more headroom than the panel doors.
