What are the advantages of an insulated garage door?
Insulated garage doors are quieter and help keep the temperature inside your home stable and less likely to be affected by the heat or cold outside. But, if your garage is attached to your home, the interior air will tend to travel into your living area, so if you work in your garage, you may prefer to not have it insulated. Give our specialists a call to help you choose the right door that will be perfect for your home.
Which garage door parts wear out more quickly?
The moving hardware parts, springs and lift cables in particular, usually suffer the most wear and tear. It would be wise to have all of your door's components regularly inspected for wearing and damage. Broken springs and cables require immediate replacement, and can be extremely dangerous if left unattended to.
Can I add a window to my existing garage door?
Yes. Adding a window to your garage door is possible. However, you have to understand that it will change the overall weight of your door. This means that the springs should also be changed or adjusted to ensure the system remains balanced.
