How can I fix my garage door?
Garage doors are quite heavy and very large. This makes them quite dangerous to repair on your own. Many of their different parts, like the springs for example, are under a lot of tension, and can cause serious injuries when they're mishandled. If your door doesn't seem to be performing well, the best thing to do is to call qualified garage door repair specialists who can take care the problems for you.
I'm getting a new garage door installed. Can I keep the old tracks?
While it is possible to keep the tracks of your existing door when getting a new one installed, it is not recommended you do so. The tracks are not very expensive, and keeping the old units can void your new warranty and may also compromise the proper performance of your new door and lead to frequent problems.
What are the signs of an out of balance garage door?
A garage door that is out of balance is a potential hazard so you need to act quickly to rectify it. Some of the signs to look out for are the door looking crooked when it's opened half way, the door slamming down too fast and its bottom not being in line with the header. If you notice any of these, get it checked fast. Remember, spring adjustment (which is how balance issues are often fixed) is not a task you should carry out yourself. Leave it to the professionals. Give our team a call.
When is steel garage door waxing a good idea?
It is possible to cover the front sides of the panels with car wax instead of painting them. Our professionals recommend this for places where there are temperature extremes and lots of rain or snow. The wax will protect the panels in coastal areas where there are a lot of abrasive sand and salt particles carried by the wind.
