Popular Questions About Garage Doors

After repairing and installing garage door systems for as long as we have, it becomes second nature. Over the years, we started to notice that many of our customers end up asking very similar questions, so we decided to create this FAQ section in order to try and provide any interested homeowner with some informative answers.

Are extension springs safe?

Yes and no. Older extension springs that only rely on hooks to secure themselves to their mounts are more dangerous than newer models. The more modern models come with safety cables and even safety brackets and locks that ensure that the springs don't fly off if they snap. A broken spring can result in a serious injury, so make sure you have the most advanced model possible.

What's the difference between steel and nylon rollers?

The steel ones have steel wheels and stems. The nylon ones have nylon wheels and steel stems. They are quieter compared to their all-metal counterparts, and they don’t require lubrication either. In fact, the lubricant may actually damage them. Steel rollers, on the other hand, tend to be stronger and will most likely last much longer.

Do I need to put a lock on my garage door?

It is recommended that you get a high-security lock installed on your garage door if you are still using it manually. However, if you have an automatic overhead door, this is not necessary as the garage door opener will serve as your lock. If you'd like to add a lock in order to increase your home's security, you can, but remember that you'll have to open it before using your opener.
