Cheap garage doors (1 or 2 layer) - Are they worth it?

Submitted by gdcorp on Tue, 09/17/2013 - 02:17

For years we have had residential customers request “the cheapest door you’ve got”. The next comment is usually something like -”I am selling the house” or “It only has to last a few years” or “Why would I need insulation - my garage is not heated”.In most cases they are looking for a 1 layer not insulated garage door for a detached, unheated alley or side drive garage. We have seen builders install these same cheap garage doors on an attached garage with living area above the garage door just to cut their costs.

It's spring break for many - secure your garage door

Submitted by gdcorp on Sun, 03/24/2013 - 19:47

This week many of are customers in the Chicago area are on spring break. If you are going to be out of town and NOT using your garage door you may consider unplugging the motor unit from the outlet on the ceiling in the garage. This will prevent anyone from using the garage door in your absence. You can also use the mechanical slide lock on the inside of your garage door (if equipped) to act as a deadbolt lock. Be sure that you disconnect the power before using the manual lock to prevent damage to the door or garage door opener upon your return if you forget that you locked the door.
