Let us clarify things! We offer answers to the most common questions about garage doors
How long torsion springs usually last?
You can estimate the useful life of the garage door spring with simple calculation. Check the cycle life estimated by the manufacturer. It is usually between 5,000 and 20,000 cycles. Then determine how many times you operate the door each day. One cycle consists of one opening and once closing. Divide the cycle life by the number of cycles per day to get the useful life of the spring in days.
What kind of insulation material is best?
Polyurethane is the best material for insulation because it is thicker, and its R-Value is higher at R-18. Doors should generally be insulated so they protect the contents of the garage against extreme outdoor climate. If you have a non-insulated garage door, have it insulated, there's no need to replace the entire door.
Can I insulate my garage door?
Yes! Some doors are sold without insulation and this can create a problem in the future. There are insulation kits available for you. Our professional service technicians advise contacting a garage door service provider for having your garage doors installed with weatherstrip and other insulation.
How powerful should my garage door opener be?
Your option in terms of the power of your garage door opener should be determined by the size of your door. Our experts recommend that for an 8’x12’ door, the opener should be at least 1/3 HP. For over 12’ high, a ½ HP will be enough. The success of the opener however is affected by the door balance.
