Choosing a Garage Door Today is a lot More Complicated Than it Used to Be


Nowadays, garage doors are an integral part of any home, whether it’s used as car housing, a workshop or a converted living space. So, naturally, there’s more to think about for your new garage door installation than simply, does the garage door opener open and close the door correctly? Yeah? Good to go. But that’s actually not the case, especially in places like Northern California. So next time you invest in a new garage door, think about more than just the utility of it.

Things to Consider:

  • Style: There are countless options now; do your research and choose a style that will best fit the look of your home. It will enhance your curb appeal and make your home more unique.
  • Safety: CA has made battery backups for garage door openers mandatory to ensure easy exit in case of wildfires. Consider other fire safety features like tempered glass, which is resistant to high heat, and having a professionally-installed, tight fit door with no gaps, to keep out the elements in case of a wildfire.
  • Weather Resistance: Consider the effects that sun, wind and water can have on your door and choose the appropriate materials to resist the effects of weather wherever you are. For instance, anyone living near the coast should probably give up the idea of a traditional wood door.
  • Regular Maintenance: We can never stress enough how important it is to regularly maintenance your garage door. Whether garage door parts just need lubricated, or you have a broken garage door torsion spring that needs replaced, keeping up with the aging of your door will help it last longer and stop it from becoming a safety hazard. Call a professional for regular maintenance, because a new garage door costs a lot; it’s not an expense you want to be dealing with every couple of years just because you neglected some simple maintenance.

Broken Garage Door Springs are a Job for the Professionals

Chances are, if your garage door spring is broken, you already know because your door isn’t working. On extension springs, it’s easy to tell where and how a spring is broken. Torsion springs are a bit more nuanced. But even if you can identify the problem, this does not mean you should fix it. Of all the issues your garage door can have, a compromised garage door spring is probably the most dangerous. You risk serious bodily harm if you mess with these yourself; they hold a lot of weight and a lot of tension. So call your local trusted garage door repair company.
