What do I need to know about extension springs?
Extension springs help the panels move by stretching while the garage door is closed, which makes them become loaded with tension. They then release that tension by contracting when the door is opened. They're usually installed in pairs, and if one of them snaps, they both need to be replaced for safety reasons. Since they can be very dangerous, they are often interlaced with safety cables that prevent them from whipping around and hurting someone when they break.
What should I look for in an electric garage door opener?
Consider the horsepower, safety and the security features of the opener. Typical residential models will have horsepower ratings ranging from ½hp to 3/2 HP, enough to lift most standard size doors. Safety features such as the automatic reverse mechanism are standard to prevent injuries from occurring. You should also look out for security features such as locks and security lights to fit your needs.
Should I use polyurethane insulation for my garage door?
We think this is a pretty good option for insulation. The material has a very high R-Value and is flimsy enough not to cause any problems with the weight of the door. We can ensure that it is chemically bonded between the steel panels before it's installed at your property.
Does my garage door opener have an average lifespan?
The average lifespan of garage door openers can range from anywhere between ten and twenty years. However, if the opener system is properly maintained and does not suffer major the wear and tear with constant use, then it could go beyond twenty.
What type of garage door should I get?
Our experts get this question a lot due to their expertise, but picking out a style of a garage door is an individual matter which depends on your needs, environment, and budget. Asking an expert to provide you the choice available will allow you to better gauge your options.
