Replacing your garage door has several impacts on your home's value.  Most obviously, your garage door is typically the largest moving appliance in your home...yet most of the time it is  the least valued asset of the home's properties.  Less obvious is the value of the first impression that your home leaves visitors when they first arrive!  Consider this:  In the November 2011 edition of "Remodeling" magazine,  the installation of an upscale garage door in your home ranked #2 out of the 34 basic home projects for Return on Investment (ROI).  If you are in the process of listing your home for sale, consider the advantage of attracting the right buyer and getting real return on investment!  Give us a call today to meet with us - we'll help you sharpen your plan for success!

Spring has come early this year!  That means that it's time to clean out the garage already.  Be careful when cleaning around your residential photoelectric safety eyes - these wires must be in good contact in order for your operator to work properly!  If you find a bad connection, give us a call and we will help you either in person or over the phone!

Broken Springs

Torsion springs for garage doors have an average life span of 8-12 years depending on the use of your door.  some larger doors have two springs in the counterbalance assembly - If you experience a broken spring, you may want to consider replacing both at the same time...when one breaks, the other isnt far behind.  Purchasing the second spring and having it installed at the same time will drastically save you money rather than having a service technitian visit you twice within the same year or two!
 
  Give us a call if you have noticed that your spring needs to be replaced.  Dont let your garage door opener work harder than it was designed to do!
