Do Not Overlook the Detail When It Comes To Your Garage Door | Garage Door Repair Bothell, WA

There are many questions to consider when selecting a new garage door system: Which opener to go for, which door material, and whether to opt for insulation or not. These might be considered the big decisions, but the smaller ones matter too. In some way or another, most of the decisions you make concerning your door can make a difference when it comes efficiency and safety. The devil is in the detail – read on to learn the things we think it's important you don't miss!

Choose The Right Frames

Whether you have glass doors or only window panels, selecting the perfect frames to fit them is very important. They must be strong, resistant and well-sealed. Aluminum frames come recommended as they are durable and tend not to warp. Insulation is important as you don't want to compromise energy efficiency by allowing air to escape through poorly insulated frames.

Make Sure The Weather Seals Are Strong

Weatherproofing is another way to ensure your door is properly insulated. Properly applied seals can help to ensure no unwanted dirt, leaves or water work their way into your garage. In particular, it's important to give special attention to the bottom seal since a gap here can leave your door exposed to small animals and weather.

Check your Door Complies With The Building Code

If you're living in an area prone to extreme weather like hurricanes or thunderstorms, we strongly recommend you confirm that your garage door can withstand the elements and complies with the building code regulations of your area. For areas susceptible to strong winds and rain, we recommend considering 24 gauge steel for your door as well as reinforcement.

Install Safety Cables

If your door is missing these important cables or they are considerably worn, we recommend installing new ones as soon as possible. These components will keep your door from crashing down in the event that your springs give way.

Choose The Right Rollers

Don't get nylon garage door rollers if the door is extremely heavy because they will break easily.

Check The Emergency Release Rope

It is really important to ensure your door's release rope is reachable and works properly. This feature exists for use in the event of an emergency – it won't be much help if it doesn't work or you can't reach it!
