Time to paint your garage door

Salt Lake City Garage Door Paint

Over time the paint on our garage doors will become dull or start to peel off; this is natural. This happens with pretty much everything. But if your garage door is starting to look old and worn down it can really affect the way people see your entire home. It will definitely decrease the market value. A fresh paint of coat will make a dramatic difference in the appearance of not only your garage but also your home.

If you are looking to have someone come out and paint your garage door our technicians would be more than happy to help. Just give us a call and we will send someone right out!

What to do at the first sign of trouble

Salt Lake City Garage Door System

Next Tuesday, you’re going to go out to your garage like you do every morning. You’ll have your coffee and briefcase in hand just like every morning. You’ll press the garage door opener button to open your garage door just like you do every morning.

Except, this morning, it makes a strange groaning noise, and hesitates before opening.

This is what we in the industry refer to as, “The first sign of trouble.” This is when you first notice something may be wrong, and this is when we advise you call us out.

Think of it like this: That groaning and hesitation could mean you need a simple track alignment. If you allow that to go on for sometime, though, it could turn into a much more costly repair, going as far as needing an entirely new garage door system, including the opener. So as soon as something seems different than normal, be sure to call us!

Tinted Garage Door Windows

Salt Lake City Garage Door Windows

How would you like to live in a glass house?

garage door windows

Okay, that’s a little extreme, but when you have garage door windows installed on your sectional garage door without having the windows tinted, that’s kind of what you’re doing– You’re inviting Ms. Livingston from next door to take a peak in your garage and see what’s going on in there; you’re inviting that punk little Billy to look inside and see if he wants anything; and everyone else that wants to come by and take a gander.

Why have an unsecured home when you can have them installed right the first time? Call us, and we’ll make sure you get the right windows; and if you had some lesser company take care of your installation, we can still help you out!

Turn Your Garage Into a Game Room

Salt Lake City Garage Door Game Room

A lot of people have started turning their garage doors into additional rooms to their house, and we say “why not?” We think it is a great idea if you have a driveway or ample room for your cars on the street by your home then why not used that additional space for more living area?

If you are looking to transform your garage door into a game room then we have some suggestions for you. The first is to make sure that your garage door is properly insulated because this will help keep the new room at a more comfortable temperature throughout the year.

Secondly, you may want to think about installing some windows in your garage door if it doesn’t currently have any. This will really open the space up and make it feel like a real part of of your home rather than a cave.

When to Upgrade Your Garage Door

Salt Lake City New Garage Doors

If your garage door is still operating well and you aren’t having any issues with it at all then you might be wondering why you would get a new one. If you haven’t upgraded your garage door in the last 10 years then you should highly consider it. Garage door manufacturers make major changes to garage door technology every 5 to 10 years that make the door safer. So, if your garage door is older than 10 years it is not up to date on all of the newest safer features.

A new garage door can also make your entire home look new and improved and since it is one of the most prominent parts of the exterior of your home it will make a huge difference.

Winter is coming

Salt Lake City Garage Door Winter

That is why it is so important to get your garage door up and running. The winter is long and cold, and it is so much more of a hassle to have your door repaired or looked at when there is snow and wind outside. Not to mention how terrible it is to have to leave your car outside over night and then have to clean it off with all the snow and ice.

So do yourself a favor and have all of the parts of your garage door checked out now before it gets too late into winter and you are kicking yourself for not doing it sooner.

What is “rolling code”? Is it important

Salt Lake City Garage Door rolling code

In a word: Yes. Rolling code is incredible important for the safety of you, your home, and your family. But the more important question is, “why?”

Lucky for you, we have an answer. Basically, your garage door opener and remote are programmed to send a secret “handshake” to each other every time your garage door opener operates. This ensures that your remote is talking to the right opener, and all that jazz. Thieves found a way to learn this secret handshake, and emulate it, to gain access to your garage. From there, they can do whatever they want, which can have some serious implication if you’re one of those who doesn’t lock the door between your home and the garage.

What rolling code does is forces the two to create a new secret handshake every time they operate, that way, if a thief gets the code, when they try and use it, it won’t work.

It’s a great piece of technology that everyone should utilize
