Is insulation important?
Insulated garage doors will help you maintain the desired temperature, not only inside your garage but inside your home as well. That means you'll spend less money on your monthly energy bill, as your HVAC unit won't have to work as hard in order to efficiently cool or heat your indoor environment.
How should I paint my garage door?
It is important to prepare the surface properly to allow the paint to adhere. Take time to properly sand away any rust or peeling paint. You will also need to ensure that the surface is cleaned of any grime or dirt. Apply a primer and allow sufficient time for it to dry before applying your chosen paint. You will need to apply several layers of paint, so allow each one to fully dry between coats. Allow the door to thoroughly dry before attempting to use your opener.
Why does my garage door screeches when opening?
This can be caused by a number of issues. In general, screeching noises are caused by worn out or poorly lubricated components. Check for any rusty hinges or bolts and worn rollers which may require replacement. Straining noises can also be caused by the panels being warped or a damaged garage door track. Try lubricating all the moving parts of your system to see if this resolves the issue.
