To find answers to the questions many garage door owners tend to ask, simply scroll down and check out the list of FAQs we created. If you've got something else you want to consult with our experts about, please feel free to call us.
Can I keep my old hardware with a new garage door?
This is possible if the new unit is of the same type as the old one and has the same dimensions and weight. However, the door manufacturer may require different parts to be used. Furthermore, if the older components are not in good condition, the new door may begin to malfunction.
Should I install a second spring?
Installation of additional garage door springs than standard may be needed if the door is particularly heavy. In this case, you may need two pairs of extension springs on each side or two torsion springs. Let our professionals weigh your garage door and help you decide.
What causes a garage door to hang on one side?
This problem typically occurs when an extension spring is too loose, deformed, damaged or broken. The problematic part has to be inspected and the problem should be resolved quickly. This is because a malfunctioning spring can snap completely, causing a serious accident.
Do automatic garage door openers provide greater security?
Automatic garage door systems tend to provide greater security than manual ones. They have no external openers or bolts for forced entry and are generally strong enough to endure an impact. However, if you have an automatic opener, you'll also need to take good care of it and ensure no one's leaving fobs unattended or sharing your access codes.
Does my garage door system need regular maintenance?
Regular maintenance is important to prolong the lifespan of your system. Even tightening any loose fixings and lubricating the moving parts of your system can improve the performance and reduce wear and tear over time.
