Garage Door Tune-Up Tips

Garage Door Tune-Up Tips

Do you wait until there’s something wrong with your garage door before taking action? Doing so could leave you with a big bill and the inconvenience of your garage door not opening for you. It is much better to perform regular maintenance and call the professionals for an annual garage door tune-up to keep it in good working order.

Here are our expert tips for your garage door tune-ups.

Maintenance you can do yourself

Any garage door repairs are better off left to the professionals because they can be extremely dangerous in the hands of a novice. However, there are certain checks you can do throughout the year to monitor the health of your garage door and all of its parts. Some of these are simple visual checks where you inspect parts to look for any damage or significant wear and tear.

Here are a few vital tune-up checks you should do on a regular basis:

  • Pay attention to the movement of your garage door. If it doesn’t open and close smoothly then there could be a problem. Keep an eye out for any jerkiness or stopping and starting.
  • Pay attention to how it sounds. Garage doors should not make excessive noise while opening and closing. Keep an ear out for any changes in the noise your garage door makes while in operation.
  • Inspect parts for damage. You should check the rollers, springs, cables, and pulleys for any obvious signs of wear and tear. Cracked parts or frayed cables are a warning sign.

Then there are some simple maintenance tasks you can do yourself to keep your garage door operating smoothly:

  • Lubricate all moving parts. Moving parts like rollers and hinges will wear down quicker if they are not properly lubricated. Apply a basic store-bought lubricant to these parts regularly.
  • Tighten loose hardware. Check whether any of the hardware is loose and tighten up the screws and bolts to stop this from getting worse. Parts can loosen over time just from the vibrations of your garage door.

Why you need to book a professional tune-up

On top of your own maintenance, you should arrange a professional tune-up at least once a year. Thanks to their experience and expertise, a professional may spot a problem that you wouldn’t have noticed yourself. They can resolve any problems quickly and efficiently before they become bigger issues.

Don’t run the risk of leaving your garage door unmaintained. Perform regular checks yourself and top this up with at least annual tune-ups from the pros. If you notice anything unusual during your own checks, you should call a professional garage door service to see to it for you. You can contact Carolina Garage Door for your garage door tune-up around Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville.

Questions to Ask Before You Add Windows to Your Garage Door

Questions to Ask Before You Add Windows to Your Garage Door

Windows can add a nice decorative touch to a garage door while also letting some natural light into the garage. But is it the right option for you? Before you jump into making this decision, here are a few questions you should ask when you’re considering adding windows to your garage door.

Can your garage opener support windows?

Adding windows to your garage door will increase its overall weight, meaning your garage door opener will have to lift more weight each time you open the door. Depending on the type of spring system as well as its age and the condition it’s in, this may be problematic. It’s a good idea to have your garage door assessed by a professional to determine if you can install windows safely in your garage door. It may require updating your spring system if it’s getting old.

What style are you going for?

One of the main considerations when installing windows in a garage door is the appearance. Windows add a bit of interest to otherwise uniform garage doors. Since your garage door makes up a large portion of the front of your home, it’s important to most homeowners that it looks good. A popular trend is to install decorative garage door windows that match the windows in the front door to the house.

How much time do you spend in your garage?

If you spend a lot of time in your garage, then adding windows can have both upsides and downsides. If you spend time in there during the day, then windows give you the benefit of letting natural light into the garage. This can make the atmosphere more pleasant while also saving a little on your electricity bill.

The downside is that windows are not as insulative as garage doors, so adding them will detract from your garage door’s ability to keep your garage warm in winter and cool in summer. This could lead to an increase in heating and cooling bills for inside your garage.

Do you store valuables in your garage?

The final question relates to security. Traditional windows let you see out and others see in. If you have valuables on display in your garage, then this could pose a security risk as thieves may target your garage. A solution to this is to have translucent or frosted windows. These will still let light into your garage and add aesthetic appeal, but people won’t be able to see in.

Are windows the right solution for your garage doors? If you’re looking for garage door advice or installation services around Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville, then get in touch with us today.

Top Tips to Prepare Your Garage Door for Winter

Top Tips to Prepare Your Garage Door for Winter

You might be prepared for the cold of winter, but is your garage door? To help it survive the low temperatures and blustery weather, there are some essential maintenance jobs you should do before the temperature drops too much. These will help to ensure that it operates properly throughout winter and remains in good condition.

Inspect the seal and weather stripping

Your garage door should be properly sealed and the weather stripping should be in good condition to keep the cold winds and snow out of your garage. This will help to save on heating costs, especially if your house is attached to your garage, and will prevent water from seeping in.

Check the weather stripping around the garage door to make sure it isn’t cracked or worn. Another trick is to turn the light on inside your garage and stand outside, closing the door behind you. If there are any gaps around the door, you will be able to see the light coming through. Have your weather stripping and bottom seal replaced if there are any problems.

Lubricate moving parts

Making sure all the components of your garage door move smoothly can be even more important when things start to freeze up. All moving parts such as the rollers, springs, and hinges should be lubricated regularly. You can buy a spray lubricant that makes it easy to apply.

Insulate your garage door

Another way to keep the cold out of your garage this winter is to make sure your garage door is properly insulated. If yours isn’t, then you can either install a new insulated garage door or add insulation to your current door if you don’t want a full replacement. Insulation can be added to the back of your garage door to help keep the cold out.

Clear debris from around the door

Debris can build up around your garage door over fall, so you want to make sure that this is all clear in time for winter. Pay attention to the tracks of your door to make sure they’re clear of debris, and make sure nothing is obstructing the sensors linked to your garage door’s safety features.

Schedule a garage door tune-up

To check up on any other potential problems your garage door might have, it’s a good idea to call a professional to book a garage door tune-up. This will fully prepare your garage door for winter and identify any problems before they become too costly.

If your garage door needs a check-up or maintenance in time for winter, then you can call Carolina Garage Door for services around Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville.

Innovative Garage Door Ideas That Will Have Your Neighbors Talking

Innovative Garage Door Ideas That Will Have Your Neighbors Talking

Garage doors are generally pretty standard fare. The tried and tested designs of aluminum or steel garage doors can be seen all over the country, and they do the job well. But why should we stick to these universal garage door ideas? Your garage door takes up a large portion of the front of your home, so don’t you want it to be something that will grab the attention of passers-by and visitors?

If you’re ready to revamp your garage door, here are a few innovative ideas to get your neighbors talking.

Glass garage doors

Rather than the typical steel or aluminum garage doors you see on every street, a glass garage door can add an extra touch of sophistication and intrigue. As well as the aesthetic appeal, you have the extra benefit of letting light into your garage during the day, which is good if you tend to spend time in there. Translucent glass can give you privacy and conceal any valuables in your garage, too. These doors are typically supported by a metal frame, so they are still strong enough to last.

Garage doors for your house

Think outside of the box and use a garage door for something other than your garage. Replacing part of an exterior wall of your house with a garage door can really add interest. A glass garage door is the perfect choice for this because it will also let light into the room. This will serve as an additional way in and out of your house, making it perfect for leading onto your backyard from a conservatory or “man cave,” for example.

Carriage house doors

While glass garage doors are a way to add a modern appeal to the front of your home, installing carriage house-style garage doors can provide a more traditional, vintage appearance. Making your garage look like an old-fashioned farmhouse, carriage house doors look like they’ll open up like a swinging gate but can actually open upwards just like any modern garage door.

Wooden doors

Garage doors made from wood are a little more common than glass garage doors, but they still provide a different appeal than the traditional steel doors. Different types of wood can be used and stained a variety of colors to create the look you want for the front of your home.

If you’re in the market for a new garage door, stop and think about these different designs to make your home impress anyone who sees it. For garage door installation in North Carolina, we can help you out – just get in touch with Carolina Garage Door.

Selling or Not, It Pays to Perk Up Where You Park!

Selling or Not, It Pays to Perk Up Where You Park!

Getting a new garage door is a great way of improving the resale value of your home, but that’s not the only benefit. Even if you’re not planning on selling your house, then replacing your garage door is a solid investment. Here are some of the main reasons why.

Improve the look of your home

If you’re coming home to the same view every day, you want to make sure that it is one you like the sight of. Your garage door is a large part of the front of your home, which is why it has such an impact on curb appeal when selling your house. If your garage door is old or if you’re not keen on the style of it, then this will really affect how you see your home and how it makes you feel. Updating your garage door to something you really like the look of can make a huge difference.

Make your home more energy efficient

Old garage doors tend to be less energy efficient and have problems like letting drafts into your garage. This makes it more difficult to heat your garage or keep it cool in the summer, which leads to rising energy bills. If your garage is attached to your home, then this matters even more. New garage doors are well-insulated and more energy efficient.

Add convenience to your day

New garage doors can come with a variety of smart features, like the ability to open and close your garage door from your smartphone, meaning you don’t even have to leave your car to do it. It might not sound like much, but the small amount of time you can save through these kinds of features will save you time every day and make things more convenient for you.

Improve the safety of your home

New garage doors also come with better safety features, making it much more difficult for a potential intruder to break into your garage and your home. New technologies and more stringent safety standards have made garage doors more secure and better able to protect your home and family by keeping intruders out.

Are you ready for a new garage door? Call us for expert garage door installation in North Carolina, around Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville, whether you’re selling your home or not.

A Crash Course in Garage Door Openers

A Crash Course in Garage Door Openers

Are you confused by all the different types of garage door openers out there? If you’re looking for a new garage door opener, read on to learn more about them and what to look for when you’re browsing through them

Different types of garage door openers

Traditionally, there are three different types of electronic garage door openers – chain-driven, belt-driven, and screw-driven. Chain-driven garage door openers are perhaps the most commonly found. They operate using a metal chain to open and close the door when it is activated.

A belt-driven opener replaces this metal chain with a rubber belt. These are a little more expensive but tend to last longer as the metal chain can wear down quicker as it rubs against the metal tracks. A belt-driven opener also produces less noise than the chain, so it is a better option if your garage is attached to your home.

Screw-driven openers tend to be even quieter than belt openers, operating using a threaded steel rod. With fewer moving parts involved in the system, less maintenance is generally required for this type of opener, but the downside is that they operate slower than the others. We now also have more options for garage door openers using new technologies, including the direct-drive and DC-powered openers that can work more efficiently and quietly.

Features to look for

When you’re choosing your new garage door opener, here are some key features to look for:

  • Safety features – Garage doors can be dangerous when not installed or maintained properly. To avoid accidents, a lot of garage door openers come with certain safety features. Your door should be able to stop itself from closing if it detects something in its path, and an auto-reverse feature can make it go back in the opposite direction if it does detect or come into contact with something.
  • Smart controls – Garage door openers can now be equipped with Wi-Fi or another kind of technology that allows you to operate your garage door from a smartphone app. This can be extremely convenient and stops you from worrying about remembering your keys or replacing the batteries in your remote control.
  • Horsepower – It is important that you know what horsepower your garage door opener needs. The standard is ½ horsepower but if your garage door is larger and heavier, then it may need a ¾ horsepower opener or even 1 horsepower. The extra weight that comes from insulating your garage door may mean you need a ¾ horsepower opener.

If you need to buy a new garage door opener, have it installed, or need garage door repair for your current opener, then contact us for services around the Piedmont Triad area of North Carolina, including Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville.

Which Is Best? Single or Double Garage Door?

Which Is Best? Single or Double Garage Door?

If you’re designing a new garage or replacing your garage door, then size matters. Specifically, the size of your garage door. In your design planning, you may have come across doors of different sizes – single garage doors and double garage doors. A single garage door generally has maximum dimensions of 10 x 7 feet, while a double garage door can measure as much as 16 x 7 feet.

So, how do you know what you need for your garage?

Determining if a single garage door is enough

There are a few things to consider when deciding if a single garage door is right for your garage. First of all, what do you use your garage for? If you don’t use your garage for storing a vehicle, then a single garage door will probably be enough.

If you’re parking a single car in your garage, then a single will be fine in most cases, unless you have a large car like an SUV. You want to make sure there’s plenty of room to get out on either side of the car, so measure up your car against the garage door to determine if you’ll need more room than a single door provides.

If you park two or more vehicles in your garage, then you will definitely need more than a single garage door.

Two single doors vs. one double door

If you’ve decided that a single garage door won’t cut it, then you have two choices – a double garage door or two single garage doors. Part of this decision will come down to aesthetics and tastes. Which design do you prefer the look of? Some designers will advise that a large, double door is quite imposing and can disrupt the look of the front of your house, while two single doors look more balanced.

If you’re parking two vehicles in your garage, then they can just as easily fit through two smaller doors than one large door. However, remember to consider the size of each vehicle. Larger vehicles will fit more easily through a double garage door, giving you plenty of space to exit the vehicle and move around it in the garage.

Two single doors can also be more practical than a double door. If your double door malfunctions, then you could end up locked in or out of your garage, whereas one of two single doors malfunctioning still leaves you with one functioning door to use. Plus, two single garage doors can also be more efficient as they let in less air from outside. This means that less cold air enters your garage in the winter and less hot air in the summer.

Once you’ve decided what is right for your garage, you can call us at Carolina Garage Door for all your installation needs around Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville.

Turn your garage into a man cave for football season

 

Football season is upon us and people all around the country are making plans for viewing parties when the season starts. Your garage could be the perfect place for watching the game, so read on for our tips on how to turn your garage into a “man cave” this football season.

The screen

You don’t want to be huddled around a tiny TV to watch the game. Give the sport the justice it deserves with a large, widescreen TV or, better yet, a projector to display the game on a blank wall in your garage if you have one that’s suitable. If you don’t have enough electrical outlets in your garage for everything you need, considering having new ones added or else running long extension cables into your house if it’s feasible.

The seating

Comfort is key for viewing parties, so you should make sure that you’ve got enough comfortable seating for everyone. If you don’t want to lug your home furnishings out to the garage every time, then it’s a better idea to get sofas and chairs that live in your garage permanently. For extra comfort, recliners are obviously the way forward.

The snacks

No football game is complete without a selection of snacks and drinks to accompany it. Make sure your fridge and cupboards are well-stocked before the season starts.

The garage door

If you don’t want to take the “cave” aspect of your man cave too literally, then there are some upgrades you can make to your garage door to make the space airier and more welcoming. There are various options for garage doors that let air and light into your garage and make access easier, such as swinging or gate-style garage doors, or a screen door for the added benefit of keeping insects and debris out.

Staying warm

The weather’s going to start getting colder, so a portable heater or a permanent heating system in your garage will make your viewing parties more comfortable. You don’t want your energy bills to skyrocket though, so making sure your garage and garage door are properly insulated can help to keep the heat in and the bills down.

If you need a new garage door for your perfect viewing parties this season, contact us at Carolina Garage Door for installation services around Winston Salem, Greensboro, High Point, and Kernersville. If you’re going ahead without replacing your garage door, then a pre-season tune-up could be a good idea to make sure there are no hitches in your plan.

Glass Garage Doors

Glass Garage Doors

There are a variety of different materials that could be used to make your garage door, whether that’s at home or on commercial premises. One that is less often seen is the use of glass for garage doors. Should you choose a glass garage door? Let’s weight up some of the benefits and potential dangers to help make your mind up.

All about glass garage doors

Glass garage doors are typically made up of sections of glass panels joined together by aluminum framings. They are more commonly used by businesses, but can also be used for home garages. For example, a car dealership may use a glass garage door to allow customers to still look inside at what is on offer.

The advantages of glass garage doors

Why would you choose a sectional glass garage door over traditional, solid doors? These are some of the benefits glass garage doors have to offer.

Easier to heat in winter – If you’ve ever been in a room with big windows during summer, you know how hot they can get as the sun streams through the glass. A glass garage door will also let the sun through, which offers benefits in winter where you will notice a reduction in your energy bills as it will be easier to keep warm.

Lightweight – The combination of glass panels and aluminum, rather than steel, provides an extremely lightweight effect. This makes it much easier to open and close your garage door, allowing you to air it out in summer, too.

Durable – Glass garage doors are tough and long-lasting, able to withstand practically anything the weather can throw at it. This means they will not need repairing or replacing too regularly, as long as you keep them maintained properly.

Modern style – If you’re looking for a more modern appearance for your home or commercial garage door, then glass is a great option. It provides a nice look for the front of your home or business and can be designed in a variety of different styles.

Any disadvantages?

You should also consider the potential disadvantages of upgrading to a glass garage door. They do pose a possible security risk if people can see into your garage, especially if you are storing valuable goods. Obviously, glass is easily breakable compared to steel. You can mitigate this risk by treating the glass with an opaque film. This means that the sunlight can still get through, but prying eyes are kept at bay.

Glass garage doors may also need cleaning more regularly than solid doors if you want them to look their best.

Considering a Detached Garage?

Considering a Detached Garage?

As the nation’s prosperity grew in the 1940s, it became increasingly common for families to own a car and, therefore, require a garage. Within the next decade, attached garages became a the most common entry point to a home. Now, it’s almost unheard-of to find a new home without a garage, a majority of which are attached.

It’s ingrained in many of us that detached garage doors are antiquated, but they are slowly making a comeback. Why are so many people now considering a detached garage?
