Here you'll find answers to some of the most common garage door related questions homeowners tend to ask. If you'd like to learn more about how to increase your system's longevity, then you've come to the right place.
Will my garage door work better with steel or nylon rollers?
Steel rollers are strong and very durable. However, they need regular lubrication to work smoothly and to keep noise levels down. You will have none of this with nylon rollers. They are quiet because of the material they are made of and should never be lubricated as this may damage them. On the negative side, they may not last as long as their steel counterparts.
Why isn't my new remote working?
Chances are you just need to make sure your remote and your garage door opener are properly calibrated. This ensures that other remotes will not be able to open your door. Before you call us, though, make sure your remote's batteries aren't dead. You'd be surprised how many people forget to check them.
Why does wood require extra attention?
According to our specialists, garage doors made of natural wood will definitely need more frequent maintenance, especially if you live in high-moisture regions. Natural wood warps over time and if not maintained on a regular basis, it could also rot, which can end up causing problems to the proper operation of the garage system, as well as diminish its aesthetic appeal.
