Why is the garage door structure important?
The structure determines the insulating properties of the door in addition to its strength and weight. The units with a single-layer structure tend to have the lowest R-value. Those which have two layers of the main building material and a layer of insulation between them tend to have the highest R-value.
I haven't touched my garage door in decades, is it still safe to use?
There’s a very high chance in these cases that too many issues will be present for it to be used safely right away. You will need to have a thorough check for rust and broken parts in the door, especially if it is made from mostly metal. You’ll need to check carefully for rot and serious decay in any wooden parts, and if it's an electrical or automatic system it's best to stand well clear when testing it out.
Are replacement springs expensive?
The professionals of Garage Door Repair in Estates explain that the cost is directly linked to quality. Stronger springs with greater cycle life tend to cost more. At the same time, they will operate reliably for longer time. In general, you should try to get the best value for money when making a choice.
Can I get parts which don't rust?
You can avoid rust problems by getting garage door parts made of galvanized steel. When steel is zinc coated, it's protected from elements and doesn't erode. This is also true for the door panel. Though, components would still rub on each other and would still require lubrication maintenance so that the material won't be scratched.
Why are bottom rollers harder to replace?
Bottom garage door rollers are secured on brackets on the lowest part of the door. The garage door cable is also attached to this same bracket and if you accidentally remove the bracket or the cable, the latter might snap. This can have terrible repercussions since it might injure you. So, ask assistance from our professionals.
