One of the more common issues that occur with the garage door is that it either sticks open or closed. This can be caused by a wide variety of issues, from your remote-controlled garage door opener all the way to sensors and switches. There may even be obstructions that are stopping your garage door for being able to work properly. In either case, we can be to your home in a timely manner and regardless of what time of the day or night it is, we can get your garage door working again.

Another problem that many people don't recognize it is an issue with lubricant. The garage is often exposed to temperature extremes, because it is not heated in the winter or air-conditioned in the summer. As a result of the variations in temperatures, the lubricant viscosity can be affected significantly. If it is a problem such as this, we can verify the issue and make sure that your door is back up and running in a timely manner.

The Difference between Commercial and Residential Garage Doors

You may sometimes hear talk about the installation of various types of garage doors but basically, it can be broken down into two general categories. One of the categories is commercial, and this is the type of garage door that is usually installed in the area where extra security is needed or perhaps where the garage door is going to be operated more frequently. Another type of garage door is residential, and this is the more common type that is used on occasions when we need to get in and out of the home. What is the difference between these two types?

The first thing that we will consider is the material that is used and the construction of the door itself. For commercial doors, they are usually made out of aluminum or galvanized steel. These tend to be durable materials that provide an extra layer of protection that may be needed by those commercial properties. Residential garage doors, on the other hand, may be made out of a wide variety of materials. Some of the common materials that they are made from include fiberglass, wood, aluminum, steel and composite materials.
