Frequently Asked Questions

Does Your Garage Door Have You Stuck?
We Have The Answers.

How much does it cost to install a new garage door?

Because there are so many different sizes, models, insulation levels, and options, such as windows, it’s hard to nail down the common cost of a garage door installation. Usually a very well built insulated 16x7 door, without windows, can be anywhere from $1900 to $2500. Prices change with time and certain buildings can be more of a difficult install than others.

How do I know if I need a new garage door?

The condition of your sections, or “panels” is usually the driving factor if you need a new door. If they are cracked, bent, sagging, or rotting, your door most likely needs replaced. Age is also a factor. If your garage door is wood or fiberglass, and was built 50+ years ago, repairs can sometimes be difficult because of the lack of replacement parts. A new door should be considered in these situations as well.

What are some common garage door problems?

Broken springs are probably the most common type of repair that we do. All springs, both extension and torsion, usually have a lifespan of around 10,000 cycles. Some last longer, some don’t. Worn out rollers and broken hinges is also a common repair. Along with rusted cables, broken or mis-aligned reverse sensors, and broken gears on certain model operators.

How often should I have my garage door serviced?

In most situations, once a year is sufficient. If the door(s) is used very often, or is in damp and/or dirty conditions, sometimes once a month is required.

How can I prevent my garage door from breaking?

Proper maintenance is a large part of making your door last a long time. As with anything mechanical, use and years take their toll. Only using your garage door a couple times a day can greatly increase the life of its spring(s) and other moving parts (hinges, rollers, bearings, etc).

How do I choose the right garage door for my application?

A brochure can be provided if you’re unsure what type of garage door you would like. We offer free estimates, and we can discuss what your needs are. We install C.H.I. garage doors which are made in Arthur, Illinois. We also install Liftmaster operators.
