There's nothing our garage door experts love more than sharing their knowledge. That's why we created this page. We want to help all of our customers with whatever question they have. Take a look at our FAQs below.
What is a carriage garage door and why is it so popular?
A carriage style garage door is designed to literally appear like old-timey houses that were built to shelter stagecoaches and horse-drawn carriages. A lot of them are actually made of insulated steel and only exhibit a faux-wooden exterior for curb-appeal benefits. These types of doors have grown in popularity since the early 2000s. If you're looking to get one installed, our experts can help.
Should I replace both extension springs at the same time?
Let's start by saying that replacing springs is a dangerous task and you should really avoid doing it yourself. But yes, if one part of the pair breaks or is getting close to its breaking point, replacing both springs at the same time is definitely the way to go. Since they were installed at the same time, they've suffered through the same amount of wear and tear, and therefore if one of them needs to be replaced, the other one can't be too far behind.
Is it possible to paint my garage door?
Yes, many residential garage doors can and even should be painted at least once a year or so, depending on their type or design. You may need to check the painting instructions of your owner's manual so that you will know what kind of paint you can or can't use. Doing this can help your panels last for a longer time, and keep their curb-appeal at a high level.
Can I have a custom-made garage door?
Yes. there are limitations, but generally speaking, it is possible to get a custom-built garage door. However, in order for your new door to be a perfect fit, our experts will need to take exact measurements of the size and length of the opening to your garage, among other things.
