FAQ

Get answers to important questions regarding garage door systems by reading this dedicated FAQ section. Whether you're led by pure curiosity or you want to enrich your knowledge for practical purposes, you will find valuable information in the answers provided below.

What is an R-value ranking?

The answer depends on the type of springs you have and how often you use your garage door. Typically, torsion springs will last longer than their extension based counterparts. About 10,000 cycles on average, with every cycle representing one full opening and closing of the door. Of course, if you make sure to regularly inspect and lubricate the torsion units they can end up lasting far longer.

How often should my garage door be serviced?

Whether you have an overhead garage door or some other type of system, this multi or single-paneled mechanism is undoubtedly one of the largest moving parts of your home. Many families tend to use their garage door more often than they do their own front door. That's why, at the very least, you need to have the mechanism serviced once a year; and that's the absolute bare minimum. Of course, there's a major difference between simply giving it a quick overview and having a professional make all sorts of tweaks and adjustments. Give our team a call if you want to have your door serviced by experts.

Is it easy to measure the garage?

It's not hard but it does require precision. You need to measure the backroom, which is the distance from the opening to the back of the garage, as well as the sides of the opening and the headroom, which is the distance from the opening to the lowest part of the ceiling. The measurements need to be precise because being even only an inch short in accuracy can determine whether or not you could have an opener installed, or which type of springs you'll need to use. If you don't want to risk it, let our experts take precise measurements of your garage.

How often should weather seals be replaced?

This depends on how quickly they wear out. You should check them twice a year as part of your regular garage door maintenance routine. To do this, you need to enter the garage during the day while the door is closed and turn off all the lights. If you see light coming through the sides of the door, those seals will need to be replaced. Naturally, the bottom weatherstrip will wear out quicker, so make sure you pay it a little more attention.

How long should my springs last?

The answer depends on the type of springs you have and how often you use your garage door. Typically, torsion springs will last longer than their extension based counterparts. About 10,000 cycles on average, with every cycle representing one full opening and closing of the door. Of course, if you make sure to regularly inspect and lubricate the torsion units they can end up lasting far longer.
