Our team can answer any question you may have about your automatic garage door system or any of its different features. Check out our FAQs below to see if your issue has already been addressed. If it hasn't, let us know.
How long can a garage door spring last?
The most common garage door torsion springs have approximately ten thousand cycles of functionality in them. A cycle is defined by one full opening and closing of the door. These components will gradually wear out over time and will eventually break. When that happens, you need to have an expert replace them.
How can I determine if my springs are properly balanced?
You can test this by switching to manual mode and then opening your door halfway. If the door doesn't stay in place and instead starts moving up or down, then you need to have your springs adjusted. This is a dangerous task, so you should leave to a trained professional.
What materials are garage doors made of?
Each different material has its own benefits, although wood and steel doors are by far the most popular choices. The type of material that will be a perfect fit for you will vary depending on your specific needs. For example, wood is a great natural insulator and is considered to have a classic beautiful appeal. However, it requires more maintenance and is heavier than, say, aluminum. Steel is very strong and durable, yet it can rust and is also heavier, and therefore requires a more powerful opener.
