Do you have questions about broken springs, damaged garage door parts and new openers?
The carriage garage doors were the first style doors of the early 20th century and were made of wood. Today, carriage doors are not swing hinged but mostly up and over and made of wood or steel according to the experts of our company in Mill Valley.
Locks are necessary for garage doors without openers. If you have electric garage door openers, it's better to refrain from installing locks for safety reasons. If someone of your family locks the door and you try to open it, the door will be damaged.
Stainless steel garage door parts will definitely last longer because they will not erode over the years. Of course, they aren't recommended for all occasions. For example, Garage Door Repair Mill Valley wouldn't suggest galvanized garage door torsion springs for your place unless you live in very high moisture regions. The other parts should be galvanized.
It is better to start on the outside and then work insides. First the frame must be able to take the garage door. The windows and panels must fit snugly into their sockets. The hinges should be placed in such a way as to achieve perfect balance for the structure.
