The Best Garage Door Repair Contractor
It's good to know a few things about garage doors. If you have questions, get answers here.
Which is better, the torsion or extension spring?
Garage door torsion spring is usually mounted to the header and can be found attached just above the top section of the door. It is the better choice since torsion springs are able to balance the weight of the door better than their counterpart. As a result, the garage door operates far smoother and safer.
Is there a need for me to lock my garage door?
It depends as to whether or not you have an automatic garage door opener installed. This device will serve as your lock if it is installed properly. With an opener, your door will only open through a garage door opener remote or a mounted keypad, making it impossible to operate the door manually.
Why is an insulated door better than a regular one?
An insulated door protects your vehicles and other items from outside temperatures, and is more energy efficient. When the weather is too hot, you do not need to lower your garage door’s temperature to balance out the temperature inside. When the weather is too cold, you do not need to jack up your heater to avoid engine stuck ups.
What should I do if my garage door freezes?
If there is ice at the bottom and around the jambs, you should melt it with a heat gun or hair dryer. You must not attempt to break the ice even with a plastic object. If the spring, hinges and rollers are hard to move, you should clean them with solvent and spray lithium-based lubricant.
