Insulate your Garage!

Salt Lake City Garage Doors | Salt Lake City, Utah

Most people don’t think to insulate their garage.  They usually figure that their car doesn’t mind the cold, and thus, they don’t need to worry about it.

But think about it.  Your garage is an extension of your home, and if you have an insulated garage and garage door, that means the temperature in your garage doesn’t fluctuate.  That can have a lot of important implications when it comes to the temperature in your home.  For instance, that means you don’t have to worry about opening the door to your garage.  It can also have a sort of carry over effect that could save you money on heating and cooling expenses.

If your garage door has started to wear down or is showing signs of rust, you may be able to save yourself the trouble and cost of replacing the entire garage door by simply painting it. A new coat of paint can make the door look brand new and it will also help keep the door from rusting in the future. Painting the door is an easy process that can be done in the matter of a day. You just need to make sure you sand it down first, use a primer, and then make sure to use a silicone based paint that is made for garage doors.

Garage Door Springs

Salt Lake City Garage Door Springs

If you have a broken garage door spring  you have a decision to grapple with – should I replace just the broken spring, or should i replace both springs?

Why you should replace both at the same time

The smart answer is to replace both. Unfortunately, consumers don’t understand the need to replace the spring that isn’t broken, and they believe they are being “oversold” or hoodwinked by the technician.

Not so. Replacing both tension springs makes perfect sense. First of all, the unbroken spring is bound to be on its last leg because springs are engineered to last a finite number of open-and-close cycles for your garage door. When one spring snaps, it’s a sure sign that the other is about to blow. The average garage door spring lasts about 3 years, but technicians can install longer-lasting springs that cost a few dollars more and provide peace of mind for many years to come.

Another excellent reason to replace both your tension springs at the same time is to save money. Most reputable garage door service companies offer a nice discount for the second spring.

Finally, look at this way: when your shoelace breaks, do you replace just the broken lace, or both?

It’s possible that you have only one spring as a counter-balance to the tremendous weight of your garage door. If so, it’s a tightly-wound torsion spring mounted above the door in the center of your garage. These are the most dangerous types of springs because they store so much energy. Be sure to consult a professional.

Summer Maintenance Tips for Garage Doors

Salt lake City Garage Door Maintenance

The life span of a garage door is usually around 15-20 years, but you can’t expect your door to last that long without regular maintenance to maximize its dependability. Since summer is fast approaching in several parts of the world, here are a few tips even a novice can keep up with:

  1. Check for signs of wear and tear. Look out for misaligned tracks and sensors, bent railings and rusty gears. Replace or tighten bolts here and there and make sure your door opens smoothly.
  2. Keep it Rust-free. If you witness paint chipping off your steel door, that means moisture is seeping in your door. Sand the rust, coat with zinc-rich primer and top it off with latex paint for outdoors.
  3. Beat the Heat. Insulation isn’t just handy with keeping the garage warm during winter; it also keeps your garage at a comfortable temperature for people to stay in.

Safety reminder: Areas under great tension such as cables, springs and bottom brackets should only be repaired by professionals.

REMOTE OPENER PROBLEMS

If you have trouble opening the door with your remote from the car, try operating your garage door using the wall outlet. If it works fine when the wall outlet is used, your remote may need battery replacement or repair.
