Winter-Proof Your Garage Door

As the colder weather approaches, it’s a good idea to start thinking about winter-proofing your garage door.  With your garage door being the largest door in your home, it is a major contributing factor to the temperature inside of your house.  If your door needs insulation, adding insulation panels is very easy, and can help lower the monthly energy cost.

If you’re looking to replace your non-insulated door with a new vinyl-back or steel-back insulate door before winter arrives, we can help!  No better time than now to take care of your garage door so that the cold weather doesn’t affect the cozy temperature you’ve created for your home!

Call us today for more information on insulation panels for your non-insulated door, or for a FREE measure/estimate for a new insulated garage door!

Garage Door Seal: Astragal

With the colder weather upon us, it is the time that we find unwanted pests, such as raccoons, skunks, or other critters in our garage.  They are on the lookout for a warm shelter, and if your garage door has any gaps or if it’s left open for long periods of time, they just scurry on in, making themselves at home.  Not only do they not belong there, but they can do damage to whatever we house in the garage, as well as doing damage to the garage door or safety sensors.

If your garage door needs new sealing for the bottom of the door, we have what you need.  The rubber astragal can be damaged or warped over time, needing to be replaced.  We also offer storm shield which attaches to the concrete, with the door coming down to meet it.  That provides a little extra coverage, as well as protecting against water, dirt or debris.

Another option to help keep unwelcomed critters from your garage is to invest in a garage door screen.  While we don’t currently offer garage door screens, they are a nice addition to your garage, especially if you are one who keeps the garage door opened (probably more-so in the warmer months!) while working in or outside.  They are great for keeping bugs out and letting the fresh air in!

 

Garage Door Maintenance: Fall/Winter

Fall is here, and Winter is on the way… That means it’s a good time to have your garage door serviced, as well as having the springs on the door checked.

You can check for any problems with your garage door. To test the balance of your garage door, pull the red-handled emergency release cord. This disconnects the door from the opener, allowing you to open your door by hand. While raising and lowering the door a few times, listen carefully for any squeaking noises. This is the sound of hinges that need to be lubricated. Your garage door hinges will generally need to be lubricated once a year (remember to use silicone).
The next step is to lower your door all the way down, then raise it to about two-three feet off the ground and let go. Did your door stay in place with little or no downward slide? If yes, your springs are still working fine. But if the door feels heavy and sags, your springs are showing their age and starting to wear.

Sometimes the cold weather can cause your door to stick or the springs to break, so before that happens, call us for a service call!

Clopay® Garage Door Featured on DIY Network “Ice My House” Television Special

Clopay and Above and Beyond Garage Doors helped rapper turned home renovator Vanilla Ice transform an overgrown backyard into an urban oasis for a Queens, New York couple selected as the grand prize winners of the DIY Network’s “Ice My House” contest.

 

The makeover episode will air Tuesday, October 22 at 6 p.m. E/P on the DIY Network.

A few years ago the contest winners decided to purchase a fixer-upper in a neighborhood where they could be close to family. The couple started remodeling the inside, but with full-time careers they were running out of time and money to tackle the outside of the house. Winning the contest was a dream come true.

DIY and Vanilla Ice’s team of contractors spent 10 days upgrading the yard with items on the couple’s wish list including an outdoor kitchen, a pool and a gazebo. Clopay dealer Dennis Dubowski and his team also installed a Coachman Collection carriage house garage door as part of the $30,000 project.

The home’s detached garage is a prominent focal point of the backyard so it was important to upgrade the door to set the stage for the newly designed entertaining area. The carriage house design fits the architecture of the house much better than the original door. Most importantly, the homeowners are thrilled with the results.

LiftMaster Service Bulletin: 888LM MyQ Control Panel

When the 888LM MyQ Control Panel is connected to the LiftMaster Internet Gateway, it creates a two-day communication system which randomly sends out a burst signal of information through the 900MHz radio system.  This burst signal has been found to potentially trigger motion sensors of secondary wall control panels when the first wall control is mounted less than 12″ away horizontally and less than 28″ away vertically.  This close proximity may cause the lights on garage door openers to become erratic. If you encounter this situation, please use either of the techniques described below to correct the situation:

– Separate the 888LM MyQ Control Panel from the other motion sensor by at least 12″ horizontally and 28″ vertically.
– Turn off the motion sensor on the device that is displaying erratic behavior.

If the techniques above do not resolve the issue, please contact LiftMaster’s Technical Support Center at 1-800-528-6563 for further assistance.
