Can a garage door opener handle a heavy one piece double wooden door?
A garage door can range from something as light as 80 lbs. to something that tips the scale at a whopping 400 lbs. A double wooden door certainly falls along the higher extreme. This said, not all garage doors will be able to handle such a heavy load but certainly those with a higher HP rating will be able to do so. Garage door opener ratings range from 1/2 to 1 1/2 horsepower.
Can I buy insulation for my garage door?
You don’t have to buy a new garage door to benefit from the use of insulation. Insulation kits are an economical alternative. Kits are readily available and can be installed by homeowners or trusted professionals. The insulation fits against the inside of your door. These kits shouldn't take too long to install.
When is garage door panel replacement required?
Wood panels have to be replaced in case of severe rotting. Metal ones require replacement when they have corroded. Glass panels have to be replaced instantly when they are broken. This is particularly important since, the security of the garage will be greatly compromised otherwise.
Q: How should I reset my electric garage door opener?
A: First switch off the power and unplug the opener. Turn on the power after 10 seconds. Push the down arrow button till the door is closed completely. Now press the 'set' button. Now press the arrow up button and wait till the garage door is at least 7 inches above the opener. Now press the 'set' button again.
Q: What is the importance of safety cables?
A: Safety cables should be installed on all extension springs, which can be found just above the garage door tracks. These cables help contain the spring in case it breaks suddenly. Contact our pros at garage door repair Sherwood if you notice that the cables are fraying.
