What are the benefits of an insulated garage door?

A garage door opening represents a large opening in your home’s thermal barrier. Insulated doors will help to reduce the amount of outside temperatures that enters your garage, thus reducing the amount of energy required to cool or heat your home. Insulated doors also reduce noise from the exterior of your home.

What maintenance is suggested for my garage or overhead door?

Most garage doors do not tend to require ongoing or repeated maintenance. However, there are a few things you can do to keep your garage door operating efficiently. 

Here are some steps you can take to maintain your door. They are:

  • Periodically lubricate your garage or overhead door track. Call us to determine the best methods for lubricating your specific door.
  • Clean the frame’s weather stripping with vinyl cleaner and lubricate it once every other month with an appropriate product to keep the stripping pliable.
  • Inspect the rollers every six months and replace any that are worn or broken, or call us and have us replace them.
  • If you have a painted door, periodically paint the exterior to help protect it from the elements.
