Valuable answers to garage door questions
The purpose of this FAQ page is to provide clear and detailed answers to common garage door questions, and practical advice. Our goal is to cover a diverse range of topics to make this source of information highly valuable.
Do I need to replace the entire door if only a part of it got damaged?
If you have a single panel door then the answer is probably yes. However, if you have a sectional garage door, then only the affected panels will need to be replaced. Our experts can help you find new matching ones that won't hurt the curb appeal of your home.
Why does my opener keep making a strange whirring noise and doesn't open the door?
This sounds like a case of worn out motor gears. What you're hearing is your opener's motor essentially "running on neutral". Replacing the gears can be dangerous, and will require professional skill, so it's best that you contact us to have our experts do it.
How much headroom does a residential garage door require?
The answer will depend on the type of door and springs involved. Standard torsion springs and an overhead door usually need at least twelve inches of headroom. More may be required if you plan on installing an opener as well. Remember that backroom is also required, and this too can vary according to a few factors.
