Why does my garage door open immediately after closing?
According to our experts, one of the common causes for this is that there could be something underneath the door. If an obstruction is detected, electric doors would automatically open. If there are no obstructions, then the garage door opener settings may need adjustment.
What does a headroom mean?
A headroom is simply the distance between the garage door’s top and the ceiling’s lowest point. The lowest point of the obstruction, such as the door opener’s rail, ductwork or pipe is also counted. The headroom is measured to determine the right size of door to install in a garage.
What are my options if I want an energy-efficient garage door?
You may ask our garage installation professionals regarding energy-efficient models, if you want a new overhead door. However, if you still want to use your existing door, weather stripping can be installed on the bottom and edges of your door. The door itself can also be insulated using injected foam, polysterene and others.
Do I need to have my garage door insulated?
You only need an insulated door if your garage is directly attached to your home, or if it shares a common wall with it. The heating and cooling will be lost, increasing energy costs, if the garage is not insulated. There are several options for you if you want an energy-efficient door.
