What does the R-value rating signify?
The R-value of your door indicates its level of thermal efficiency, as in, how insulating it is. A door with a high R-value will better protect your garage, and subsequently your home, from outside temperatures. Consult with our experts to make sure you get a door that's as insulating as possible.
Will painting my garage door have a harmful effect?
Applying a coat of high-quality paint to your garage door should not cause it to sustain any short or long-term damages. In fact, coating the door with paint is usually used as a preventive measure for homeowners who believe that the layer of paint can actually protect the door from external damage.
Why isn't my overhead door opening fully?
If your overhead door doesn't come to its full opening position, check whether there's something obstructing the movement of the garage door rollers. If they're okay and the tracks aren't bent, use the up button at the opener unit to adjust the door's opening position and see if this makes a difference. If no, give our team a call!
Why do my garage door components need lubrication?
Most garage door parts are made of steel. They are also connected with each other and if they don't have lubricant to facilitate their movement, they will rub against one other, creating friction, bad noises and faster wear and tear. We recommend semi-annual lubrication maintenance at the least.
