There are multiple different types of garage doors on the market and you may be wondering which is the best one for you. In most cases we highly recommend the sectional garage door. The biggest reason for this is its ease of repair. If something were to go wrong with just one section of the door we can easily replace just that one section instead of replacing or repairing the entire door. This will save you a lot of money in the end. Do you have a preferred type of garage door? If so, why?
Most of us don’t bother to lock the door inside of our garage that leads into our home. There doesn’t seem to be a reason to need to lock it, the garage door being closed is usually enough security to keep people out of your home. However, if you garage door were to malfunction or if you accidentally left your garage door open, you would be leaving your home open to anyone who wanted to break in. We believe in safety no matter what, and that is why we think it is very important to make sure and not only close your garage door every time you enter it, but to also lock the door inside the garage.
If you own a commercial business that requires the use of a garage door, you may not be aware that it should be a different opener used for it than a regular residential garage door. In most cases a commercial or industrial garage door is much heavier than the residential garage door. This can cause extra strain on the opener if the right opener is not being used. We highly recommend using a screw drive opener for all commercial and industrial garage doors. These openers are made to lift very heavy doors.
If you have windows on your garage door you have probably noticed that they are frosted. This doesn’t allow for as much light to come through as a clear window would so you might wonder why the manufacturers would do this. Garage door manufacturers have your safety in mind when they do this. The frosted windows allow you to have a stylish garage door with natural light coming in while keeping your garage private from prying eyes. Your privacy is important, and your frosted windows are just an added level of privacy to your garage door.
If you currently have a chain drive on your home then we would highly recommend you think about replacing it with a belt drive opener. The belt and chain drive openers work in the exact same way except that one lifts and lowers the door using a chain, the other a belt. The biggest advantage to a belt drive is how quiet it is. A chain drive can make a lot of noise while it operates, but a belt drive could operate in a library it is that quiet. For most residential buildings a belt drive is preferred as to not irritate anyone inside the home.
If you are used to doing all of your home repairs on your own, you may think it will be no big deal to repair your garage door by yourself. There are certainly some things you can do to help your garage door work more optimally like lubricating the springs and hinges and checking it regularly, but anything larger than that should really be handled by an experienced and professional garage door technician. A garage door is very heavy and very dangerous if not properly repaired or installed. Reading a manual will not take the place of actual experience working with garage doors. Please don’t put your safety at risk; call a professional garage door company today.

You have a driveway, right? So we think it is a fair idea to park your cars in the driveway and use the garage as another room in your home. It can be easy to make the garage a man cave. There isn’t carpet on the floor so you don’t have to worry about being as careful with food and drinks. It is further away from bedrooms so you can watch loud movies or sports games away from the others in your home. We say, get on it!

Sometimes in the summer the sun can get so high that it can actually affect your garage door functioning properly. There have been cases where the garage door opener refuses to pick up the signal when the sun is shining directly on it. If this happens to you, more than likely just shading the sensor will be enough to get it working right again.
Another important thing to keep in mind is keeping the garage door closed as much as possible during the hottest parts of the day. The heat can easily seep in through the garage and into you home if you don’t keep the garage door closed.
