If your springs are about to break, or your opener isn't working right, our team can help. If you have some questions about your garage door system, take a look at the FAQs below to see if the answer to your predicament is addressed. If it isn't, all you need to do is give us a call.
What causes a garage door to get off track?
This usually happens when a cable snaps. The door starts hanging on one side and its own weight can force it to get off one of the tracks. This situation is dangerous so you must get help fast. Your door panels can weight upwards of three hundred pounds, so you should never try to realign the door with the tracks by yourself. Give our experts a call ASAP.
Is a chain drive opener more durable than the rest?
Currently, this type of garage door opener is regarded to be the most durable. This is because the chain is extremely strong and highly unlikely to suffer damage. You have to pay a price for durability, however. Chain drive openers tend to be the noisiest and the only way to make them quieter is to have them undergo regular maintenance. Our team can help you with that.
Why is R-value important?
R-value is the measurement of the thermal efficiency of your garage door. In other words, it tells you how well it insulates your home. A higher value means better insulation, so if you have a room next to or above your garage, you should get a garage door with a higher R-value to keep the outside temperatures from affecting you. Our experts can explain the R-values on all our doors and help you select the one that's best for your home.
What should I look for when inspecting my garage door springs?
Our technicians recommend that you watch out for rust, scratches, scraping, and deformation of the coils. If you notice any of these issues, you must have the spring in question fixed as quickly as possible. If the springs appear greatly worn, they should be replaced to avoid the potentially dangerous complications associated with this type of scenario.
