Repair, maintenance and other services for garage doors available
Are you wondering whether to get insulated or non-insulated garage doors? Read the best tips here.
Installing weather seals
According to our technicians installing new seals saves energy and reduces moisture spread. Apply it to the bottom edge, frame and panels. Cut the stripping to the sizes you need and then apply using Liquid Nails. Finish by screwing on the stripping using a nail. You can use self-anchoring galvanized tools. Try to caulk using compressed foam.
Dealing with bent parts
As a rule of thumb any parts that are bent will likely get broken with time. Therefore you should give the garage door a complete rest until all the bent parts are completely repaired. Checking for these problems can be as simple as visual diagnosis or you may even go further by doing a full inspection.
Header and bracket garage door misalignment
This will certainly reduce the functionality of your garage door. Often, this is merely a symptom of the fact that the pulley is not perfectly aligned with the motor. Therefore, first begin by reassembling the pulley system before moving on to the brackets. The brackets are definitely easier to move than the head set.
Consider an oil tempered torsion spring for a heavier garage door
This type of spring is typically used in commercial doors, but it has residential application as well. It can withstand greater exertion compared to its galvanized counterparts and also operates effectively for longer. Its main drawback is that it leaves black to grey residue when working. Still, the residue can be easily cleaned.
