Frequently Asked Garage Door Questions

Are there any doors which can withstand extreme weather conditions?

Standard garage doors can withstand a great deal of adverse weather including rainstorms, frost and strong winds. However, if you live in an area which experiences particularly adverse weather, there are a number of garage door options which have been optimized to withstand extreme weather including high winds. These types of doors are usually constructed with additional struts which have been steel reinforced, upgraded the strength of springs, rollers, and tracks. These doors can usually withstand wind speeds of up to 170 miles per hour.

What horsepower value should I look for in my garage door?

In order for the opener to lift and lower a garage door efficiently, a sufficient level power is needed. Typically, a door opener with 1/3 HP (Horsepower) is adequate for a garage designed for a single car and about ½ HP for a two-car garage. If you opt for a carriage house design of wood door, the opener should be powered with ½ HP engine.

How can I protect privacy with glass doors?

There are many different styles of glass garage doors and the glass panel may also be tinted. You can choose milk glass or mirror, white laminate or similar shades for the panel and this way you won't be seen from prying eyes.

What is the solution for a deformed spring?

In this case, we recommend that the component gets replaced as soon as possible. A deformed spring will cause the door to open more slowly. In this way, all the connected hardware parts and the opener will strain more, making them more likely to wear quickly. You would not want to take this risk.

My door keeps freezing shut when it's cold, what do I do?

Luckily there is a simple trick for this. You can use some silicone spray on a rag and wipe it on the base of the door and sides as a preventative measure - this should also prevent the door from freezing shut.
