Can You Help Me with My Broken Garage Door After Hours?
When it comes to having a broken garage door at night or early in the morning, we understand the safety risk it can pose, as well as how irritating it can be. We offer customers 24/7 emergency services for round-the-clock on-site repair and replacement.
Can I Replace a Section of My Door, or Do I Replace the Whole Door?
When mishaps happen, like someone accidentally hitting the garage door with their car or flying debris causing damage to it, we typically don’t need to replace the entire garage door. Most brands and designs make it easy for our technicians to remove and replace a specific section or panel of the garage door, which makes it less expensive and time-consuming. Although sometimes the damage is too extensive, and the entire door must be replaced.
Can My Garage Door Be Painted?
Before applying any additional paint to your garage door to match your home or business’s cosmetic needs, it’s important to read any manufacturer warnings or guidelines. It’s usually okay to paint your garage door, but you might want help from professionals.
How Frequently Should My Garage Door Be Serviced?
Your garage door should be serviced any time you notice something isn’t quite right with how it’s opening and closing. If you’ve noticed any strange squeaking, popping, or scraping sounds or you’ve noticed that your door doesn’t open as smoothly as it once did, this could be a sign your door needs an adjustment or repair. It’s important to call a professional garage door service with fully trained technicians because they are equipped with the right tools, use safety precautions, and use high-quality parts.
How Much Does a Garage Door Cost?
The price of a garage door depends on the quality of materials used. The higher quality doors are a little more expensive, but we offer a diverse range of affordable garage doors for anyone’s budget. We are dedicated to helping you find the perfect garage door that suits your needs.
What Causes the Garage Door Springs to Break?
The more a spring’s cycle life diminishes, the closer the spring gets to the point of breaking. Using your garage door daily will cause wear and tear on the spring, which leads to fracturing or snapping. Springs will naturally loosen over time and sometimes require an adjustment or a complete replacement altogether. If one spring breaks, the other spring will most likely follow, so it’s usually best to replace both at the same time.
How Can I Prepare My Garage for a Garage Door Installation?
When preparing your garage for a garage door installation, you will want to get all the vehicles out of the garage, keep the driveway clear, clear space inside your garage 10 feet back from the garage door, remove anything hanging from the rafters, and clear the ground of any items.
What Size Opener is Best for My Garage?
With lightweight metal doors, you should always go with a low-powered 1/3 horsepower garage door opener. With slightly heftier single and double doors, you should select a medium-powered 1/2 horsepower opener. With the biggest and heaviest doors, you should choose the most durable and highest-powered 3/4 horsepower opener.
Can My Garage Door Be Insulated?
We offer various types of garage door insulation to meet your needs, including:
- Fiberglass Insulation
- Cellulose Insulation
- Rigid Foam Insulation
- Spray Foam Insulation
Additionally, we offer garage door insulation kits for metal doors. Our team is experienced with all types of garage insulation, and we’ll ensure all areas of the garage door are seamed with special trim.
Why Should I Get an Insulated Door?
Garage door insulation helps your home stay energy efficient throughout the entire year. Insulating your attached garage door is the best way to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
What Should I Expect from a Door Tune-Up?
Our maintenance services help decrease the risk of oiled springs losing their elasticity and breaking down faster while enduring natural wear and tear every time the door opens and closes. If you don’t properly maintain the springs, dry spring misalignment can cause a loud and annoying metal-on-metal or squealing noise. Our technicians will perform a thorough 44-point inspection of the garage door, parts, and opener to ensure they’re working efficiently. The garage door tune-up will include:
- Fully lubricating the door
- Tightening all nuts and bolts
- Checking the gear on your opener
How Much Will Door Maintenance Cost?
Having maintenance done to your garage door isn’t expensive and is worth it in the long run. Many of the emergency calls we receive are due to a lack of annual maintenance. If you have not had your garage door serviced within the last year, we can schedule maintenance services on an annual basis to give you peace of mind.
