CAN I PAINT MY GARAGE DOOR?
Steel garage doors can be painted with the color of your choice by using latex paint.
CAN I REPLACE A SECTION OF MY DOOR OR DO I NEED TO REPLACE THE WHOLE DOOR?
Depending upon the damage involved to the garage door system, it may be possible to replace a section of your garage door. With our free estimate, we can evaluate your situation and give you a recommendation on the best course of action.
WHAT IS R-VALUE AND HOW DOES IT BENEFIT ME?
R-value is a standardized measurement of thermal efficiency. The higher the R-value, the greater the insulating properties. We carry insulated doors with a broad range of R-values designed to meet your needs
WHAT MAINTENANCE DOES MY GARAGE DOOR REQUIRE?
We recommend you have your garage door inspected annually. We can give you the most thorough evaluation and perform routine maintenance as needed.
I HAVE A LOW CEILING IN MY GARAGE. WILL A GARAGE DOOR AND OPENER WORK IN MY SPACE?
Yes. A residential door requires a minimum of 4 1⁄2" of headroom space. Your system will need a low headroom extension track or a low headroom torsion rear track. For a garage door opener, you'll need slightly more headroom, about 6 1⁄2" minimum.
HOW CAN I GET A NEW REMOTE CONTROL FOR MY OPENER?
We can provide you with a broad range of opener accessories from remote controls to wireless keypads. If your opener was manufactured before 1980, you have an analog type opener that we no longer carry remotes for and your system will need to be upgraded with a new receiver kit.
