Proper Garage Door Insulation

Salt Lake City Garage Doors | Proper Garage Door Insulation

Ohhh the cold is certainly here in SLC. The cold can cause a lot of issues but one of the best ways of keeping your car and house a littler warmer is by having proper garage door insulation. You might actually be surprised by how much money you can save on your electric bill by having the right insulation on your garage door.

Insulation can keep a lot of heat inside the garage and that will help less cold air get into your home. It will also make it so that the door works better and is more sturdy. The last thing you want to do is have to walk out of your house to a freezing garage and a really cold car. But insulation keeps the entire garage warmer and that in turn means your car will be warmer too.

If you aren’t sure if your garage door has insulation you can certainly call a professional technician out to take a look and let you know. But if your garage is getting really really cold then it is probably best to either install insulation or new insulation if it the current one isn’t doing any good.  If you have any questions give us a call and we’ll answer any questions we can!

Salt Lake City Garage Doors | Garage Door Vandalism

A South African man made headlines when he tampered with the gate and garage door of another man, eventually breaking it. In a story called “Man Damages Gate and Garage Door” an unnamed crime reporter details the ordeal in wide brush strokes, leaving the identifies and motivations of the three men involved largely to speculation and other fits of fancy and imagination. But while we may never know what was behind the twenty-three year old perpetrator’s reckless tangle with another man’s garage door — was it revenge? alcohol fueled? good old fashioned tom-foolery? — what we do know is what happened, where, and in what order.

The saga begins with the landlord of the damaged garage door on Bassea Road, who called the Primrose Police Department after he received a call from a tenant in the middle of the night. Before the phone rang, the landlord had been sleeping. On the other end of the line, his tenant explained that a third man was damaging the gate and garage door on the property. Evidently, it had not occurred to the tenant to call the police — it’s possible that the landlord was acquainted with the perpetrator, and the tenant assumed he’d want to handle the situation himself. In the end, he did not.

Upon inspecting the garage door and the gate, the landlord called the police to report the damage. The garage door and gate had both been broken. The tenant didn’t indicate whether the man had used a hammer, a baseball bat, a golf club, a wrench, or his own bare hands to cause the damage, but he was able to identify the garage door’s assailant, said Sgt Styles Maome, communications officer for he Primrose police. As a result a case was soon opened against the vandal, who was charged with malicious damage to property. The young man will soon be required to appear in the Germiston Magistrates Court to stand trial for his crime against garages.

Christmas Lights Salt Lake City Garage Doors

With Christmas right around the corner you are probably in full swing of getting all of your decorations up and Christmas lights strung. This is one of our favorite times of the year because when it snows and you go out with all the lights on it is quite magical…one of the reasons we love Salt Lake so much. Anyway, we digress. Although it is so festive to hang lights we have a few words of advice.

  1. Make sure you follow all directions that are on the boxes containing all of the decorations/lights. We also recommend talking to someone experienced in hanging lights to make sure you do everything in the safest possible way.
  2. Don’t hang any lights to the actual stripping around your garage door. This can cause permanent damage. Instead, hang clips from it that are safe and then put the lights on the clips.
  3. Don’t hang anything directly in the path of the garage door and risk it impeding its motion.

It is always best if you have an elaborate idea in mind to hire someone who does this professionally, as they know how to do everything safely, but if you can’t afford that then just keep these rules in mind and you should be ok. Also be aware that all the lights can actually affect the garage door opener and your wifi…so don’t freak out if your stuff isn’t working right during this time of the year.

Garage Door home’s design

Salt Lake City Garage Doors

What’s going to make or break your home’s curb appeal? It’s the appearance of your home’s exterior, and whether or not that exterior is complimented or compromised by your home’s garage door. But garage doors don’t have to be drab, boring, and conventional. For the fashionable home owner with an eye for bold design, there are ways to give your garage door a lot of flair without sacrificing function.

One easy way to add style to your home’s facade is by adding windows and window panels to your garage door. Panel designs in the garage door create interest in the same subtle way that painted shutters do — they add to a unified aesthetic without calling too much attention to themselves. Depending on the size and style of panel, your garage door can take on many different looks.

Garage Door Windows

Long raised panels create an elegant look for your garage door; short raised panels lend depth. Painted panels can add pizzazz to garage doors that were previously plain, or you can paint the panels and trim in cool contrasting colors that will cultivate curb appeal. An added benefit of double-paned windows is that they let light into the garage and keep extreme temperatures out.


For the truly individual homeowner, a custom garage door might be the best way to get the look you desire. And going with a custom garage doors doesn’t mean you have to empty your bank account. Many are mid-priced. In fact, steel doors, which can be pre-customized according to color, are still in the middle price range come. Customized garage doors may also be painted to match the colors already in use on the home’s exterior. For wooden garage doors, hemlock looks good and comes at a lower cost, whereas cedar or mahogany makes a more high-end statement. Your contractor should come equipped with a variety of styles that can create the perfect door for your home.

Salt lake City Garage Door Opener

Another day, another news story about the questionable security of residential garages. This time, the victims are a family from Hanford, California, who recently lost an expensive Italian bicycle and their peace of mind when a burglar successfully entered their garage with a random garage door opener. “It’s quite disturbing to know that you’re inside your house in the middle of the night and someone can go in your garage and take your personal property,” Lutz said. “It’s pretty brazen by the criminals to do that,” local police Sgt. James Lutz told the local ABC news affiliate.

Melissa Durst was the first to notice that something was amiss. In the morning following the burglary, she entered her garage to find that the door was open and that two bicycles were missing. One bicycle remained, but had been pushed in front of the interior entrance to the home. Melissa was sure that she had closed the garage door before she and her kids retired to bed for the evening, and she immediately alerted her husband.

“When she got up she said, ‘Hey I didn’t move that bike,’ and then my stomach flipped,” Devin Durst said. “I was like somebody was in our garage and they didn’t know we had cameras.” But the Dursts did have cameras, and a single frame of their security footage revealed an intruder walking into their garage early on a Friday morning, just before Devin Durst left for work. Nearly a minute passed before the footage revealed the suspect riding away on one of their bikes. It is presumed he returned later for the bike that belonged to the Dursts’ 3 year old son.

The most disturbing thing about this story is that the intruder was able to enter their garage despite the fact that it was completely closed and all of the Dursts’ garage door openers were secured inside. Previously, the Dursts had had their car stolen and their Christmas decorations ruined in their front yard.

Preparing your garage door for Winter

Garage Door Salt Lake City

We know the weather has just started to cool down and fall is here, but that means it is the perfect time to prepare for winter. You don’t want to wait until there is a bunch of snow on the ground or the cold is biting to the bone to have someone come out and take a look at your garage door.

If you have known issues with your garage door let’s get someone out right away. If you are pretty sure your door is working well but haven’t had someone look at it recently then you should definitely get someone out there to take a look and test all of the safety features before winter gets here just in case you do need to do any small repairs.

It is never worth it to put your garage door safety on the back burner, because the door is extremely heavy and if it falls with all the tension coiled up in the springs it can cause incredible damage or even death. That is why it is so imperative to keep up on the security checks and maintenance of the door.

If you need to someone to come out and take a look at your door, whether it is for a known repair or just to make sure everything is ok we can certainly get you in the books!
