Why does the weight of my garage door matter when choosing new springs?
The role of your springs is to counterbalance your garage door. This means that they have to be able to support the weight of your door. In order for this to happen, these components have to be sufficiently long, wide and strong. If the wrong spring is used, it could break prematurely, and your door panels could collapse.
Do aluminum frames last longer?
One of the major benefits of having aluminum frames on your garage door is that you don’t really have to worry too much about their longevity because aluminum requires very little maintenance. It will, however, dent and bend more easily than steel and wood, so you should regularly inspect it for damages.
How can I tell if my garage door is starting to rust?
The best way to tell if there’s rust building up on your garage door is to do a visual check on the outer surface of the panels since that’s where rust usually begins to form. The color of rust can vary from shades of orange, red, and brown, and sometimes even yellow. Rust also has a rough texture, so you'll be able to feel it's grainy ruggedness with your fingers.
