Garage Door Spring Service

Your garage door springs endure a lot in the cold weather, so do them a favor and have your garage door serviced in the Spring as it warms up.  A good way to check your torsion springs (or extension springs) is to disconnect the door from the opener by pulling the red emergency release cord, and raise the door half-way.  If the door falls on it’s own, it could mean that the springs need to be adjusted or possibly replaced.

To even better service your garage door and opener, have them serviced in the Fall as well to prepare for the colder weather.

For more information, or to schedule a service call for annual maintenance with one of our professionals, call us at 615.822.3667!

Every Friday Clopay offers a weekly dose of exterior door inspiration on their Facebook and Pinterest pages.

Now, Clopay wants to give you a chance to become an exterior design star during their ‘Foto-Finish Friday’ Feature contest on Facebook.

The concept is simple.  Homewoners e-mail before and after images of their home featuring a Clopay garage door installed in Middle Tennessee by Dixie Door with a brief explanation about why they decided to replace their garage door, what inspired their design choice (perhaps a suggestion from a design savvy dealer), and what friends and family are saying about their home’s new look.

If your Clopay garage door makeover succeeds in turning the heads of the design experts, Clopay will reward the homeowner with a $100 Visa gift card and launch it into the Clopay social media limelight for a week long “Like” fest on Facebook and Pinterest.  They’ll select up to two winners per month now through December 31, 2013.

3 Easy Steps to Choose Your Garage Door


With all the garage door manufacturers, styles, colors, and installation companies to choose from, making a decision on the right garage door for your home and your personal style can seem like a daunting task.  Dixie Door has been in the garage door industry for 57 years now and we’ve learned there are three easy steps in deciding on a garage door:


Since a sizable portion of what people see of your home from the street is your garage door, the style you choose should complement the rest of your home’s exterior.

Dixie Door offers a full selection of Clopay garage door designs from traditional raised panel options to timeless carriage house styles and unique contemporary looks.

Even if you’re replacing an existing door, remember there are many new options and materials available to match the architectural style of your home.

Dixie Door installs Clopay brand doors that come with the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval.  Use the Clopay web-based Door Imagination System to upload a photo of your home to see how various designs transform its appearance.  We suggest a straight ahead photo from 50 to 100 feet away from your garage door.  This will allow you to get the most out of the Clopay Door Imagination System.


Garage doors come in a variety of materials, sizes and colors with a wide selection of insulation, window (glass/glazing) and hardware options to choose from.  First, decide if you prefer the beauty of natural wood or the energy efficiency, durability, and low maintenance of steel and aluminum.

After choosing your style and the material you prefer, now it’s time to determination if you need insulation, glass, hardware, and any other accessories.  Use the list of Dixie Door’s standard questions along with the chart below for an easy process of elimination.

(a)  Are you looking for a garage door with a traditional raised panel, a carriage house style design, or a contemporary look?

(b)  Are you needing/wanting insulation?  For example – is your garage attached to your home, adjacent to your family room or below a bedroom where noise or temperature control is important?

(c)  Do you have enough lighting in your garage?

(e)  Do you want a door made from natural wood or one made of steel or aluminum?


Once you have decided on the style of door and options you prefer, call us at Dixie Door – 615-822-3667 (DOOR).  You’ll speak to one of our very friendly and knowledgeable staff who will schedule you with a free measure and estimate.  Our Dixie Door measure technician will come to your home and take measurements, verify the choices you’ve made, and give you the price of installation.  If needed, our office staff can mail you brochures and color samples while our measure technicians have training with exterior and interior decorating to help you make the choices you need in determining which door and options are right for you and your home.  Furthermore, we have a showroom of garage doors located in Hendersonville, TN, that allows our customers to physically see the difference between panel styles, colors, glass, hardware options, and insulation.  Dixie Door makes it that easy for you!

Clopay Earns Gold Innovation Award from Home Builder Executive


Clopay today announced that it has received a Gold Award from the editors of Home Builder Executive for product innovation in the garage door category.

Clopay’s Coachman Collection 2″ polyurethane insulated steel and composite carriage house garage door and the Canyon Ridge Collection Ultra-Grain Series were both recognized for their durable, low-maintenance, innovative design, and superior energy efficiency.

Clopay recently added a 2″ thick polyurethane insulation option with an R-value (insulation value) of 18.4 to its Coachman Collection, doubling the thermal performance of a polystyrene insulated door of the same thickness.
