The rise in insulated garage doors

Insulated garage doors have continued to rise in popularity over the last 10 years, with our surveyors being asked more about insulated doors.

More readily available:

More garage door companies are making insulated garage doors readily available; with more featuring either a double skinned steel or aluminium panel design. The insulation not only provides its primary purpose but also adds strength to the door which in turn provides great stability. Consequently, this allows for larger sized garage doors to be produced without deflection. Our customer love the Hörmann sectional LPU garage door and we believe its one of the best insulated garage doors on the market.

Adaptability for garage conversions:

More and more families have considered converting their garage in recent years too which has, in turn, meant more families have looked at a way of insulating their garage door to prevent heat loss. Although some think of taking their door out, ones that still want their home to look like it features a garage often choose the very best insulated garage doors for best results.

Climate changes:

Top tips on looking after your garage door

Garage door maintenance tipsgarage-door-install
Modern garage doors are extremely well made and are designed to help protect your car – and everything else you keep in the garage – in terms of both security, as well as protection from the weather. Looking after your garage door is therefore an essential task to add to your household checklist. This task doesn’t need to take long, but if you do it regularly enough, you could save yourself a lot of time and frustration in the future by preventing things going wrong.

Here are the Access Garage Door top tips on looking after your garage door.

Before you start

  • Tell everyone in your household that you’ll be checking the garage door. You can avoid a possible injury if they know not to open or close the door whilst you’re inspecting it.
  • Read all the labels on the liquids and lubricants that you’re planning to use to make 100% sure they’re the right ones for the job. Getting it wrong could end up in permanent damage to your door.

Cleaning and maintenance

  • Ideally, twice a year, or every 2,000 door cycles, treat the springs, spindles, tracks, hinges and latches with a squirt of WD-40 (other multi-use spray lubricants are also available). However, be really careful not to allow any to drip onto the face of the door.
  • Do not oil the track runners, but do keep them clean and free of obstacles.
  • If the rollers or hinges become stuck because of rust, try dabbing a bit of paraffin on them and rub it off with a soft cloth.
  • Clean your door with a washing up liquid solution. It’s important to always use a soft cloth or sponge, never use anything abrasive because it will permanently damage the surface.
  • Keep the door clear of caustic or acidic substances on the door – bird droppings are a particular problem because of their acidity.
  • If you live on the coast, clean the salt off the door on a regular basis in order to prevent corrosion.
  • If you garage door is made from wood, inspect the paintwork or varnish to make sure it’s properly weatherproof.

These top tips will ensure your garage doors remain in a good condition for a long time. Contact the team for more information on 0800 716 569

Why you shouldn’t do garage door repairs yourself

There are plenty of do-it-yourself jobs you can handle around your home, but garage door repair shouldn’t be on that list. Garage doors can be extremely dangerous if not handled properly because:Garage door repairs

  •  Garage doors can’t really be handled by one person on their own, so many repair jobs will require two or more men to handle the door.
  • Not only will you need more than one person to move a stuck door, the weight of the garage door can cause serious injuries if not handled correctly.
  • Your garage door might seem like a simple mechanism, but they are actually quite complex. Parts like the springs and hinges can cause injuries while you are trying to repair your door if you don’t know what you are doing.

Even seemingly easy jobs can create major issues for homeowners. Additionally, if repairs aren’t completed correctly the first time, it can cause bigger more expensive issues in the future. The best thing to do is have all of your garage door repair done by a member of our expert team.

Access Garage Doors offers garage door repair that’s reliable, affordable, and fast. We know that you rely on your garage door, so we don’t make you wait for the repairs to be done. Give us a call today at 0800 716 569 for free friendly advice about your garage door repairs!

Protecting Your Garage Door

Winter is approaching fast, your garage door can take a lot of damage during this period, so you should protect your garage from the low temperatures of winter and in the long terms save yourself money.

protecting-your-garage-doors

Anything that you store in a garage can be effected by the cold, whether it be your car or any belongings that you may be storing. There are many ways to keep your garage insulated but the main thing to consider is your garage door.

The majority of modern garage doors, especially sectional doors, are well insulated and are good at keeping the heat in. However, extra insulation will ensure your garage stays secure and safe throughout the winter. Try our draught excluder and Weather Defender for keeping draughts and dirt out of your garage.

Most importantly check your garage door. Old garage doors can get worn and produce cracks that allow air through, but they can also warp in the wet weather. If you see a problem then contact us for free friendly advice as you may require a garage door.

If you know your garage door is old and could do with a touch-up, call our experts out to have a look. The last thing your garage needs is heavy weather such as snow or heavy rain causing, even more, damage, which could result  in you have to spend additional money replacing it.

Access Garage Doors have over 40 years’ experience in fitting, maintaining and repairing garage doors and we’d be happy to help if you have any enquiries.

 Choosing a New Garage Door

Top Tips: Consider the Material

The material your door is made from is an important consideration, as this can affect the thermal efficiency, the look and the level of upkeep your garage will need. Canopy and retractable doors are commonly available in steel and timber versions, with a variety of designs available in each material – from simple, plain styles with sleek lines to grander, more traditional versions, you’re sure to find something that suits you.

Rollmatic Hormann

Roller doors are restricted by their very design, as the door needs to roll up around itself when open. This means that all roller doors have narrow, horizontal ‘slats’ rather than larger plain spaces or raised panels. These slats are made from twin-walled aluminium with an insulated core, which will effortlessly keep your garage at a comfortable temperature, whether the temperature outside is scorching hot or freezing cold. With plenty of colours to choose from, as well as wood-grain finishes, they can be a surprisingly versatile door choice.

Sectional Garage Door

Sectional garage doors are made from steel with an insulated centre, much like the roller doors mentioned above, and are becoming extremely popular in the UK. They offer excellent thermal efficiency and are great for keeping your garage at a pleasant temperature during hot or cold weather. Sectional doors are also available in a variety of colours, as well as modern metallic finishes and timber-look textured finishes, by far the most versatile of our door range. For more information contact the team on 0800 716 569.
