Quick response to your garage door needs
On this page you will find practical and simple garage door repair and maintenance tips.
Check your door for wear and tear regularly
Garage doors and their openers typically endure years of daily use before finally succumbing to some form of major damage. Many of these however have their start in minor insidious damage. This is why Garage Door Repair Duvall advises that you have your garage door and opener checked for wear and tear and safety periodically to prevent potential major mechanical or electronic problems in the future.
Checking the roller chain
Your garage door opener's roller chain should be tight, but not excessively tight, or the door won't be able to drop properly and premature wear will occur to the rollers. However, a loose chain will reduce the amount of power available to open or close the door. Our technicians are trained to determine the exact amount of tension required in every garage door situation, so when you need service or repair to your door, give us a call where your satisfaction is always 100% guaranteed.
Maintaining your garage door’s good condition
Painting your doors to make them look like new is one thing but it is more important to have our experts inspect all the parts to know if there is something that needs to be replaced. Lubricating the garage door parts is essential for maintenance.
Choose the color of your preference
When you are getting ready to replace the existing garage door or want to improve the condition of the current one, choosing the right color or repainting the door with your favorite color will make a difference to your mood. The right color will match the style and colors of your house and it will definitely improve its appeal and increase its overall value.
Match your garage door to your home architecture
In order to match the style of your garage door with the rest of the architecture inside your home, select the right material, making sure that it will match accordingly to the other furnishings and materials inside your home. Also, the design and style should also contribute to the durability of the garage door. By reading information on home designing magazines, you can get practical ideas for the design.
Options for garage door insulation
In choosing the right insulator for your garage door, you can opt between getting polyurethane and polystyrene insulators. The selection often depends on how it would fit the type of your door. Polyurethane insulation is thinner, but has a higher R-value. On the other hand, Polystyrene insulation is thicker, but with a lower R-value. The selection then depends on the thermal efficiency needed in your garage.
