Our professional technicians have been repairing, installing and maintaining garage door systems for well over a decade now, and we use this section of our website to share some of the more useful tips we've acquired with any interested homeowner.
Compare the different types of insulated garage doors to make the right choice
Those with a single layer of polystyrene insulation are the lightest and usually have the lowest R-value. If another layer of steel paneling is added, the R-value will go up. Garage doors with two steel layers and polyurethane insulation between them usually have the highest R-value.
Add your garage door remote to you key-chain
This is an important safety measure you should take, since many thieves steal garage door remotes in order to gain access to their victim's house. Therefore, leaving it in your car isn't a good idea. Adding your remote to your keychain will help you keep it out of the hands of would-be thieves.
Match the style of your garage door with your front door to maximize your “curb appeal”
As a general rule, the more your garage door match the style of your front door, or the overall design of your home, the more your house will "pop" from among the dullness of the rest of your neighborhood. Match the paint colors and trim details to make everything combine well.
