What Do I Need to Know When Looking for A New Garage Door?

Knowing how big your garage door is can be super useful and save you a bunch of time when you want to get a new one.

What Garage Measurements Do I Need?
  1. Check how wide your door is by measuring from one side to the other.
  2. Measure how tall the opening of your garage door is, starting from the floor up to the top part.
  3. Measure the space above the opening, from the top to the ceiling.
What Is a Garage Door Header?
The header is a big piece of wood or beam that sits right above the very top part of your garage door. It’s important because it holds up the walls and ceiling of your garage. Think of it as a strong base. It also helps carry the weight of your garage door and the system that helps it open and close.
What Is the Difference Between a Torsion/Extension Spring?
Both of these are important for your garage door to work well, but they are different kinds of springs. Torsion springs are connected to the big piece of wood above the top of your garage door. Extension springs are attached on the sides of the door. They both hold up the whole weight of the garage door from different spots.
Do I need To Insulate My Garage Door?
Deciding to insulate your garage door is mostly up to what you like. Your garage door is a big opening that lets heat and cold air come in. If your garage is connected to your house (usually it is), a door without insulation can make the inside of your home warmer or cooler. Doors with insulation help to control the hot and cold air, depending on the time of year and the weather.
Why is My Garage Door Opening & Closing on Its own?
This often means that the transmitters are not working correctly. When the transmitters are not in sync, they can cause problems with how the door works. It’s a good idea to call a garage door expert and set up a checkup. They will test the frequency of the transmitters and fix it if necessary.
My Garage Door Won’t Go Up at all…Why?
Extension and Torsion springs do a lot of work in your garage door system. They hold up the whole weight of the door. As time goes by, this weight can make them weaker and not work as well. It’s important to replace both of them to keep things safe and make sure you can still open your garage door when needed!
What’s is the Cost of a New Garage Door?

The price changes based on the kind of garage door you pick and the type of opener you choose. You can choose from wood, carriage style, and steel doors. It really comes down to what you like and how much you want to spend. It’s all up to you as the homeowner.

Why should I Replace My Garage Door If It’s Not in Need of Repair?
Making changes to your garage door can make your home look better from the outside, which is called curb appeal. This can also make your home worth more money if you decide to sell it.
How Do I Know That My Garage Door Is Properly Balanced?
It’s really important for everyone’s safety that your garage door is balanced right. You can check this in a couple of ways:

Open your garage door halfway and then stop it. If it stays right where you stopped it, your door is balanced.
When you open your door, the bottom of it should match up with the big piece of wood above the door.
Doing these checks helps keep things safe and working well.

Should I Replace the Track When I Replace My Garage Door?
Usually, it’s a good idea to change the track of your door whenever you get a new garage door. This helps make sure that your whole garage door system works really well and doesn’t have to work too hard.
Does My Garage Door Require Routine Maintenance?
We suggest getting your garage door checked and serviced once or twice every year. This helps us look at the door and its parts to make sure everything’s working okay. We also put some special oil on the parts to make sure they work their best.
