Our Esteemed Company Has the Most Advanced Garage Door Tools and Equipment
Let us clarify things! We offer answers to the most common questions about garage doors.
How long do torsion springs usually last?
You can estimate the lifespan of your garage door spring with a simple calculation. Check the number of life cycles estimated by the manufacturer. A life cycle represents one full operation of your door, which would be opening all the way and then closing back all the way. Now determine how many times you operate your door each day. Finally, divide the manufacturer's number by the daily usage number, and you'll have an estimated number of days left in the system's lifespan.
What kind of insulation material is the best one?
Polyurethane is the best insulation material you can use because it is thicker, and its R-Value is higher than other varieties. Doors should generally be insulated so they protect the contents of your garage against extreme outdoor climate. If you have a non-insulated door, getting your garage insulated doesn't necessarily mean that you'll have 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 to use in order to upgrade your system. Our professional service technicians advise that you at the very least get a weatherstrip installed.
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 likely be enough. The success of the opener, however, is affected by the door balance's as well as the system's overall condition.
