The Benefits of Professionally Installed Garage Door Openers

Why you should think twice about DIY garage door openers

Garage Door Openers in Derry, NH

When you are looking at buying a new garage door opener, there are two routes you can go: retail or professional. Retail would be purchasing your garage door opener at a store and installing it yourself. Professional garage door openers are supplied and installed by licensed professionals. The biggest different between the two types of openers is the rail. Retail garage door openers are designed with the rails split  pieces the have to be assembled. This allows for the rails to be easily packaged into a smaller box to fit better in you vehicle. Professional garage door openers only have one piece rails.

 

We understand the appeal of DIY home improvement projects, but we have seen an extreme difference in quality of the retail openers. Multi-piece retail rails are less durable and not as strong as as the professional grade single piece rail.  Professional model openers are more rigid and stable and last longer.

 

When choosing a garage door opener you want your door to be safe, operate properly, and on opener that will stand the test of time. Cost is also a factor. You can save money by buying a retail opener and installing it yourself, but the results can be risky if not done properly. Any errors in installation could cause problems or shorten the lifespan of your door or opener. Of course you could buy the retail opener and then hire a professional to install it, but this often ends up costing more than a professional garage door opener and installation. The price is not so different to hire a garage door contractor to install a professional model garage door opener and you are guaranteed that your door is balanced, safe, and working at its highest efficiency.

 

If you have any questions or concerns about your garage door opener, give us a call. A-1 Fleet Door Service is located in Derry, NH and serves the surrounding towns of Manchester, Concord, Nashua, Salem, and all of Southern NH and MA with superior garage door and garage door opener installation, repair and 24/7 emergency service.

Garage Door: Painting vs. Replacing

Should you Paint your Garage Door or Replace it?

Painting Your Garage Door Vs Replacing your Garage Door

Your garage door makes up over half of the facade of your home. You door will increase the value and curb appeal of your home. When garage doors get worn down with age many home owners face the decision of fixing it or replacing it. A new coat of paint will freshen the look of your garage door but take into stock how old your door, or garage door opener is, and whether or not it’s time for an update. Just like every other technology, garage doors have changed over the years. Certain safety features are now mandatory on all models. If your garage door is more than 10 years old, it is time for a change. Even if it’s been less than that, consider how well your door works and if anything has broken, dented, or been repaired over the years. If your garage door or garage door opener has needed more than one repair, it may be time to call in professionals to get it looked at.

If your door is in good repair and is relatively new, you can consider painting your garage door to give it a fresh look. If you are interested in some DIY home improvement, here are some tips for painting a steel garage door: 

  • Clean your door first. Use a soft-bristle brush, a sponge or a sprayer on a low pressure setting. Some people chose to use a solution of low-phosphate (less than 0.5%) detergent with warm water. The ratio should be roughly 1 cup detergent to 5 gallons of water. Be sure you clean and rinse your door thoroughly and let it dry completely.
  • Lightly and down scratches or gouges on the surface.  If there is any bare metal showing, you should sand that area lightly and paint it with a primer that is suitable to properly protect galvanized steel from the elements to prevent corrosion.Make sure to remove any dust or loose material from the surface with a soft brush or wet cloth.
  • Use only high-quality latex paint that’s made for exterior use. Make sure that your paint is thoroughly mixed and apply a uniform coat over the whole door. You should paint the door within 24 hours of prepping your door to prevent any new dirt or material from getting on your door before you paint. Though the sun seems like a great help in drying your door, it can actually cause your door to dry unevenly. To minimize this effects paint your door early in the morning, or whatever time of day that your door is out of the sun.

We highly recommend replacing worn out garage doors and openers. In most cases, painting over it won’t solve the problem.
