Ad An overhead door is a standard-style residential garage door that opens by lifting up, overhead, either manually or with an electric motor. They can be designed in various ways, but typically are three to four hinged sections with stylish windows in one of the sections. We also carry styles that can include windows throughout the entire door face, like these Haas garage doors with optional window placement.
Steel doors are made in many ways. The most basic and least costly includes a single sheet or panel of steel that forms the door. These doors also tend to be more flimsy than a stronger garage door.
Other types of steel doors are made with a front and back panel for better rigidity. An option with these doors is the ability to have insulation installed between the two-door skins.
The steel used to make garage doors is available in different thicknesses referred to as “gauge thickness” and ranges from 20 to 28 gauge. The smaller the number, the thicker the steel which means a 20 gauge door has thicker skins than a door with 28 gauge steel.
When you shop for garage doors you might see reference to the number of “layers” in the door’s construction. For example, a 4-layer door might consist of a composite overlay on top of a steel front panel. The back is made up of an insulated core with another steel panel.
Similarly, a door with a steel front, polystyrene insulation, and no back panel would be a 2-layer construction.
The most common torsion springs have an expected life of about 10,000 cycles. A cycle is one opening and one closing of the garage door. The steel spring experiences tremendous force each time the door opens or closes. Over time, the steel fatigues with each flex, and eventually cracks and breaks, usually releasing its stored energy in an instant. In garage door repairs, most accidents occur during the replacement of the springs. This is why it is important for your safety to always have a professional like Rock River Door Co do this repair.
When one spring breaks and they were installed at the same time, it is likely that the other will not be far behind since they both have the same wear and tear. For this reason, we suggest changing both springs at once (we always replace both if they are extension types) to save you the expense of a second service trip. It is also recommended for your safety. Contact us for all of your Rockford Garage Door Repair needs!
Depending upon the damage involved to the garage door system, it is possible in many cases to replace a section of your garage door. Rock River Door Co can evaluate your situation and give you a recommendation on the best course of action.
In order to ensure a properly working door and operator, you should have your Rockford IL garage door and operator serviced every year.
The noises your door or operator makes are your initial “warnings” that something is not quite right. The longer you put off the necessary service, the more damage may result. Regular service can extend the life of your door and operator and save you from a garage door repair.
With the garage door fully closed, simply pull the red release cord down. Always take special caution whenever you release the garage door opener if the door is not in the fully closed position, since the door may want to fall quickly closed when released. Do not release the garage door when open if possible, except for emergency or security reasons, and close the door with care. Some older openers may not have a red release cord and may need to be released by pulling down a handle, a spring-loaded clip, or even possibly unbolting the arm from the door and opener. If you do have an older door that is difficult to disconnect you may want to replace the opener with a new garage door opener that has an easy pull red release cord.
Yes. A residential door requires a minimum of 4 ½” of headroom space. Your system will need a low headroom extension track or a low headroom torsion rear track. For a garage door opener, you’ll need slightly more headroom, about 6 ½” minimum.
If your garage door is having an issue going down and seems to reverse itself, keep an eye out for your operator lights to blink when this happens. This is usually a sign that your safety beams on the bottom of both sides of your garage door are blocked, dirty, or knocked out of alignment. Sometimes they just need to be cleaned off or have slight adjustments. If that doesn't work, give us a call to inspect your Rockford IL garage door.
It depends on the model so always refer to the owner’s manual for further instructions. You can open the door from the inside using the red emergency release cord, which hangs from the mounted overhead opener. With the garage door fully closed, simply pulling the emergency cord straight down should release the door from the carriage, allowing you to operate the door manually. If at all possible, do not release the garage door when open, except for emergency or security purposes, and close the door with care. Opening the door from the outside requires the installation of an emergency release lock. If you are unsure what to do, call Rock River Door Co, your trusted Rockford IL garage door company. We are always happy to help.
