Popular Garage Door FAQs

There are a lot of different issues that can inflict your garage door system. Our experts created this FAQ page in the hopes of helping many homeowners learn how to deal with a variety of common problems. Check out some of our informative answers below.

What materials are garage doors usually made of?

The common garage door materials are wood, wood composite, steel, aluminum, fiberglass, and vinyl. They all have their pros and cons. For example, steel doors are prone to corrosion and wood doors can warp. Aluminum doors don’t corrode or warp but they are more easily dented. Fiberglass doors are good insulators but they are most vulnerable to impact cracking.

Can a garage door and an opener be installed in a low ceiling garage?

That depends on how low your ceiling is. You need at least 4 ½ inches of headroom space for an average sized garage door, and a slightly bigger headroom of at least 6 ½ inches if you'd like to install a garage door opener. There are some types of systems, such as the rollup garage door, that require less space than other types. Consult with our experts to make sure your garage has enough space.

How important is lubrication maintenance?

As far as garage door maintenance goes, lubrication is most definitely one of the most important tasks. It can help your system operate more smoothly, and will help your springs stay optimal for much longer than they regularly would. Our experts recommend that you lubricate your springs and rollers at least every six months.
