Should I consider installing a lock on my garage door?
If your garage door has an electric opener, an additional exterior lock isn't always necessary. Today’s openers usually also function as a lock, making it unlikely that an intruder will be able to open your door from the outside. Also, your door can suffer damage if someone attempts to open it when it’s locked. Another option might be getting new door. Some of our latest models feature one-button locking and many additional features. Give our technicians a call for more information.
Do I need reinforcing when installing an automatic door opener?
It's preferable. Without reinforcing your door, it can suffer damage and void your warranty. The exact amount of reinforcing depends on the size and model of your door. Our professionals are experts at installing and reinforcing doors according to manufacturer specifications, so contact us when you are ready to have an automatic door opener installed.
Is it safe to adjust the torsion spring on your own?
Torsion springs have enough stored potential energy to lift a heavy door that could weigh upwards of 300 pounds overhead. If this potential energy gets accidentally released when a torsion spring uncoils, the resulting trauma could be enough to cause serious injury and even death. Adjusting torsion springs by yourself is highly discouraged.
