Garage Door and More Garage Doors

Garage Door Value and Home Value

Garage doors play a major role in setting the value of your home. Is that surprising? It shouldn’t be. Consider that most home buyers are looking for easy access, safety, and curb appeal (how good a house looks from the curb)–all things that a good garage door improves. A bad garage door lowers your home’s resale value for the same reasons. Have you ever heard the term, “don’t judge a book by its cover”? It’s good advice, but not when it comes to buying real estate. Even something as seemingly insignificant as the garage door’s color—if it doesn’t match the house—can make […]

Garage Door Weather Stripping and More

Gradual changes are easy to overlook. With that in mind, go outside and look really closely at your garage door. Go ahead, I’ll wait. Okay, you’re back. What did you see? I doubt your garage door needs a haircut, but you likely saw a door ding or some chipped paint you’d never noticed before. Maybe the paint is fading. Maybe the bottom seal or the weather stripping is loose. Here in the Charlotte area, summers are hot enough that the color on that weather stripping could melt, which looks pretty ugly. These kinds of issues are rarely a big deal, but you’ll want to […]

Garage Door Service with a Smile

Would you rather a worker at your house smile or not smile? Assuming the work is good either way, you’d pick “smile,” wouldn’t you? Me too. That’s why it’s literally our policy to provide garage door service with a smile. Now don’t get me wrong—a person can’t smile forever. Try installing a new garage door motor and that smile might well turn into a grimace. The point is to do it whenever possible. I don’t mean you. You don’t feel like smiling right now because your garage door needs work. That’s OK, we understand. But my team (me included) need to give you garage door […]

Garage Door Installation

Garage door installation is a job for the professionals. Mistakes could cause dangerous accidents during installation itself, or the installation could seem to go smoothly, but then later the door falls or a spring slips and someone gets badly hurt. So, while there are plenty of DIY instructions online, we can’t recommend using them, and we don’t offer instructions ourselves. But we know you’re probably wondering what garage door installation involves? What can you expect when the professionals come? That’s a good question. Read on. Sectional Doors There are several different types of garage doors, but sectional doors are the most common. Since sectional doors come in […]

Let’s say your garage door needs repair—who are you going to call? If you have an established relationship with a good company (perhaps the people who installed your garage door), then the answer is obvious. But if you’re starting from scratch, you face the challenge of figuring out not just who is capable of doing the work, but who is trustworthy enough to allow into your home. The same questions come up with hiring other kinds of service people, and the answers are largely the same.
