FAQs

What kind of door should I buy?

Insulated or non-insulated -- it all depends on various factors, including:

  • Is the garage attached to the house, and is the rest of the garage insulated?
  • Are there rooms above the garage?
  • Will the garage get direct sunlight? If so, will it heat up the door and transfer heat to the garage and the rest of the house?
  • How important is having a quiet door to you? If you want it to be quiet, you'll probably want a steelback insulated door, since non-insulated doors tend to rattle as they go up and down in the track.

What maintenance is suggested for my garage or overhead door?

While we suggest a certified professional undertake any major repairs, there are some steps you can take to maintain your door. They are:

  • Clean the frame's weather stripping with vinyl cleaner and lubricate it once every other month with an appropriate product to keep the stripping pliable.
