Is an oil tempered garage door spring a good idea?
This type of spring comes pre-lubricated. The steel wire is dipped in hot oil and then made into a spring. This has several advantages. The spring can withstand intensive door operation on a daily basis without breaking prematurely. It doesn’t require lubrication maintenance to do its job well. Perhaps the only drawback of this type of spring is that it may leave thin black residue on the panels when working.
How often must my door undergo maintenance?
The frequency of how often a garage door should undergo a maintenance routine usually varies according to the age and condition of the door. However, according to our experts, you should get your door serviced once a year at the very least. Better safe than sorry, as the saying goes.
What insulated materials are best?
Manufacturers use polystyrene or polyurethane for insulation purposes, but our experts recommend the latter. Polyurethane can cover every gap between the door's panels and can make even thinner doors more insulating. Polyurethane's r-value score can be as high as 17, which means it is incredibly efficient.
Why should I get galvanized steel doors?
Galvanized materials have the advantage of being corrosion resistant. Steel doors are also incredibly strong and very durable, especially when they have rust-resistant properties. According to our experts, that means they'll be able to last much longer than other types of doors but will require strong springs to operate safely.
