Consumers are welcome to get educated from these FAQs. The answers you need.
Should I get galvanized parts or not?
It depends. It's good to invest in some galvanized garage door parts but it's not always suggestible. For example, it's smart to have stainless steel tracks but not galvanized garage door springs. Galvanized springs don't have the same power as oil tempered ones and need constant maintenance while galvanized tracks will still do their job and remain with you for years since they're rust-resistant.

What are the things to be checked first in order to troubleshoot your garage door?

How should I reduce stains?
Our technicians recommend that you hose down the entire structure at least once a year. This will reduce the risk of slip hazards as well as pockmarks. Watch out for any spillage of auto fluids as well as road salt. Hairline cracks are not a problem as long as they are on the concrete slab.
Why horsepower counts for openers?
The horsepower of the garage door motors determines the speed of the door and ensures that the opener is capable to activate its movement. If you have a very heavy door and you choose ½ hp instead of ¾ you will exhaust the garage door opener and you will need to replace the system sooner.
How often must I lubricate the components?
The experts of our garage door company in Thornwood suggest twice every year but the frequency of lubrication maintenance will also depend on the condition of the garage door parts and how often you maintain as well as open/close the door. Most of the times, it's not necessary to exceed the times recommended by specialists.
