Common Garage Door Questions

Searching for answers about your garage door? Here they are

There are probably many times when you ask yourself why your garage door is behaving a certain way, or what to do. To help you, we have come up with a dedicated FAQ page.

Can galvanized steel garage door parts rust?

Well, technically yes. Galvanized components are treated with a special coating of zinc which allows them to resist corrosion. However, if that material gets damaged and the components become exposed to air and moisture, they can still end up rusting. Also, some chemical compounds can cause galvanic corrosion, so inspect these components regularly for signs of damage.

How do I choose a new opener?

This is quite a broad question, as there are many different things you'll need to consider before choosing a new garage door opener. The horsepower output necessary to move your door, for example, as well as the noisy output your new unit is going to make. Consult with our experts to make sure you are making an informed decision.

Why does my door refuse to move even if the opener lights blink in response to my remote?

If the opener light blinks and the panels do not move, then the safety sensors may be detecting some obstruction that's blocking the door's path. Either that, or the sensors are misaligned and they are falsely detecting an obstacle. These are delicate components, so it's best that you contact our team to get them realigned carefully.

How long does a garage door opener last?

An average garage door opener usually lasts for about a decade or two, depending on its model and how frequently it gets used. With regular maintenance, however, your opener will last longer, and if you take good care of it, it may even see twenty-five years of operation. That's the quarter of a century!
