What garage door material is the best one?
The answer can vary depending on your needs. Wood is beautiful, but usually requires more maintenance than the metal variety. Composite wood might require less work as well. If you opt for a steel model, a zinc coated one is preferable, and any aluminum door would not be suitable for hurricane-prone regions.
Can I clean my garage door tracks with a household cleaner?
You can, as long as the cleaner is safe for use on metal (providing your garage door is of the steel variety, of course). It should be helpful in removing some dirt accumulation. You can use a solvent If these prove to be too stubborn. What you should never use is a sharp object for dirt removal, as it can scratch your panels.
Why are backup batteries vital for electric opener systems?
Your garage door can certainly operate without a backup battery in place, but if you want to ensure it continues to function through at least the first couple of hours of a power outage, our experts recommend investing in such an upgrade. They take no time to install and can be fairly inexpensive.
Which opener is best for me?
Well, that depends. As the saying goes, what might be right for you may not be right for some. The weight of your garage door is one of the key factors you'll need to take into consideration. You'll need a proper motor to ensure the power output is enough to properly operate the system. After this, there's the supplementary safety features and accessories that work with specific opener models. Consult our professional team to make sure you're getting the one that suits you best.
