Can my garage door be painted?
Many of our residential garage doors can be painted. Please see your owner's manual for specific painting instructions. In addition, most of our commercial doors can be powder coated. We offer 197 powder coat colors to best complement the look of your home or your facility.
Can I replace a section of my door, or do I need to replace the whole door?
Yes, replacing only a section of your garage door is possible in some cases; however, depending upon the damage involved, the entire door may need to be replaced.
What maintenance does my garage door require?
Our garage door systems are built for long-lasting performance and daily use, but we recommend inspecting your garage door annually. If you suspect a problem, we can conduct a thorough evaluation and perform routine maintenance. Read our blog article about garage door maintenance.
I have a low ceiling in my garage. Will a garage door and opener work in this space?
Yes. A residential garage door requires a minimum of 4 1/2” of headroom space. Your garage door system may need a low-headroom track system or a low-headroom-torsion rear-track system. For a garage door opener, you will need slightly more headroom (about 6 1/2” minimum).
Can my non-insulated door be insulated?
Yes, we have insulation kits available to add insulation to your existing garage door.
