Experts in garage door installation & repair
Scroll down for answers to common questions we receive from our customers. Perhaps you're planning to purchase a new garage door or would like to know how to keep your existing one in great shape. Just read on for a range of useful information on these subjects!
Are there standard sizes for garage doors?
Yes there are - they normally start at eight inches running all the way to twenty inches. The increments are one foot each but the standard height is either seven inches or eight inches depending on the frame. It is possible for us to install customized garage doors that are outside the norm.
Why should I construct garages at the side of the house?
It's always better to construct your garage in a spot that can be seen from the street for obvious security reasons. You don't want to risk constructing your garage door at the back of the house, and run the risk of bumping into an intruder hiding in the bushes while you are opening the garage door! It's basically important for security purposes as well as ease of access - you need to get your car in and out in the easiest way possible.
Why are steel garage doors so popular?
Steel garage doors are a popular choice. These models are known for durability and affordable pricing. They come in several designs and style options, and also range from a standard raised panel to a one of a kind carriage style door design. These days, steel door types have been designed to rival the appearance of their wooden counterparts minus the necessity of regular maintenance or garage door repair that genuine wooden doors need. Contact us to discuss your options!
Can I paint my garage door alone?
If you consider yourself a bit of a DIY pro and have painted your home walls before, this shouldn't be too difficult. You will just need to clean the door well first and check the panel for signs of rust or mold. Choose a high quality coat for better results and be sure to match the paint with the material of your door - any questions, just ask us, we'll be happy to help.
Which garage door material is best for me?
The best garage door material for you will be the one that suits the overall structure of your home and as well as the environmental needs of your area. Garage doors come in all kinds of material, including wood, glass, and a range of metals. We can help you choose the right fit for you depending on your budget, style and practical needs.
How do I maintain the beauty of my wooden garage door?
If you have a wooden garage door, it is best to have it re-varnished/painted with weather-protective coating at least once a year so that its natural splendor is maintained. Our experts also recommend checking if other parts of your system need cleaning, lubrication or replacement because they are also prone to usual wear and tear.
