Superior Garage Door Installation Services
How long has it been since you replaced your garage door? Most garage doors last up to 30 years when they are cared for properly. If you purchased an older home and you aren’t sure about the age of the garage door, you may want to consider getting a replacement. You should also get a replacement if you haven’t invested in proper maintenance in the past. Proper maintenance is important to ensure that your garage door doesn’t become a safety hazard. Continue reading to learn more about the importance of garage door installation and replacement and how we can help you.
Why Bother With Garage Door Installation?
If your garage door still opens and closes, you might think there is no reason to purchase a new one. After all, owning a home is expensive. It’s easy to skimp out on certain improvements until a glaring problem presents itself. Unless something is obviously falling to pieces, you’re likely to deem it serviceable and focus on paying for things that cannot wait, such as electricity and water.
It’s okay to be frugal. In fact, being frugal is an excellent way to save up money for when repair emergencies (such as those that can occur with garage doors) do happen. But there is a difference between being frugal and negligent. Keeping an old, poorly-maintained garage door can be a major safety hazard.
Did you know thousands of garage door injuries occur every year? Many of these can be attributed to poor maintenance and failure to replace malfunctioning doors. New garage doors are equipped with safety features to prevent serious injuries such as crushing accidents. Modern automatic reversal systems are more sophisticated and thus more effective. When you purchase and install a new garage door, you’re reducing the chance of tragedy. You’re also reducing the chance of a lawsuit if someone’s child or pet gets harmed by your old, malfunctioning garage door.
There is also another compelling, though less serious, reason to go through with garage door installation. Garage doors make up a wide portion of your home’s exterior. That means that if your garage door is unattractive, it will detract from your home’s curb appeal. Curb appeal is an important part of increasing home value and attracting buyers when you’re reading to sell. Thus, getting a new garage door can be helpful for this reason as well.
Why Hire a Professional For Garage Door Installation?
Your garage door opening system is intricate. It has many moving parts that all work together to help the garage door raise and lower. Each of these components needs to be installed correctly, or it will cause strain throughout the whole system. Only a professional has the skills needed to ensure each part of the garage door opening system functions properly.
DIY garage door installation is also not advisable because of potential hazards. Garage doors can weigh hundreds of pounds, and if something goes wrong, you could be injured by it falling on you. Certain parts of the garage door such as the springs and cables can also cause serious injury if they snap or become displaced during installation. That is why only a professional should undertake garage door installation.

Frequently Asked Questions
Can I perform some garage door maintenance myself?
You can do small things for your garage door to help keep it running right. Every few months, clean out the tracks and lubricate the rollers. Additionally, perform a visual and auditory inspection every once in a while. Keep an eye and an ear out for signs of wear and tear or damage. You can clean your garage door and weatherstripping as well. Everything else should be left to professionals.
Do you replace parts?
We do replace parts. Sometimes, repair isn’t feasible if parts of your garage door are damaged too much. In that case, we’ll replace them instead.
Which springs are better, torsion or extension springs?
Torsion springs are better. They cost more, but they are more durable and less likely to cause injury upon breaking. If you have the money to purchase torsion springs, they are always a better option.
Why is my garage door making so much noise?
Unusual noises during the opening and closing process are often a sign that something is wrong with your garage door. You should contact a professional if you notice any unpleasant noises emanating from your garage door.
