Garage Door Repair Service In Port Moody
OPENERS AND ACCESSORIES
Residential Garage Door ServicingAt Door Ace, we offer a wide array of residential garage door models to fit the architectural design and specifications of your Port Moody abode. We carry all major garage door types, including the following:
Sectional: One of the most popular options among homeowners, sectional garage doors are comprised of several horizontal panels hinged together and fitted with rollers with the entire assembly operating on two parallel tracks. These garage doors utilize a heavy-duty torsion spring that’s wrapped around a torsion bar to counterbalance the weight of the door, and homeowners can either lift the door manually or use a motorized garage door opener that’s chain-, belt-, screw- or direct-driven.
» Carriage / Swing-StyleA more traditional type of residential garage door, tried-and-true carriage or swing-style garage doors operate like a pair of very large French doors. Typically, these doors are made of wood and hang from jambs on hinges. Swing-style doors create an architectural focal point, adding strong vertical lines to the facade of your home. It’s also important to know that swinging garage doors tend to be more energy-efficient due to the sealant at the header and side jambs and the fact that they only have a single joint.
Commercial-Grade Garage Door SolutionsAre you a Port Moody business, warehouse, or manufacturing site in need of garage door servicing? With our full-service approach, let Door Ace install and maintain your garage doors to keep your business running smartly and efficiently! Here is some more information about the commercial garage door offerings we are proud to offer!
» SectionalAlso available as residential solutions, sectional garage doors are among the most popular and affordable options for businesses, industrial sites, and other commercial buildings. In fact, many small businesses opt for sectional garage doors. These types of commercial garage doors are constructed with six to eight panels connected to a track that slides up and/or overhead to open. Available in an assortment of materials such as wood, aluminum, steel, fiberglass, or vinyl, sectional doors are very reliable and practical for many commercial purposes.
» Rolling SteelFor added security, heavy-duty rolling steel commercial garage doors are perfect for warehouses, fire stations, storage facilities, or other sites that need to stay protected overnight or over the weekend. This type of commercial garage door is a robust solution crafted from corrugated steel, which is resistant to any impact. In addition to overhead options, there are also a wide array of side-folding styles available to create a commercial door that’s not just sturdy and strong but secure.
» High-SpeedFor higher traffic commercial buildings, businesses, or sites, you’ll need a highly durable and secure garage door to stay efficient with daily operations, production goals, and even compliance. We offer high-speed commercial garage doors such as G2 5400 roll-up doors, which can open and close 54 inches per second with the use of an opener. Some high-speed options require less maintenance than commercial doors with cables, wheels, and springs–increasing your site’s up-time and helping your business stay ahead of schedule.
» All-GlassFor commercial buildings that accommodate dealerships, service stations, repair shops, or any other business that relies on displays on a large-scale, there are also all-glass garage door options that provide panoramic windows and commercial-grade protection.
All Your Garage Door Questions Answered
» What is headroom?Also referred to as clearance, headroom is simply the measurement between the top of your garage door and the lowest point of the ceiling or any obstruction such as a garage door opener rail, pipes, or ductwork that need to be factored in when installing a new door and all of its components.
» How much headroom do I need for my garage door?Headroom and clearance also depends upon the type of spring system your new garage door uses. For extension springs, a minimum of 10″ is required for your garage door to have enough room to operate correctly. Torsion springs require a little bit more space, typically 12″.
» What should I do if my garage opening does not provide enough headroom or clearance?If you have your heart set on a new garage door that doesn’t allow for enough clearance, keep in mind that low headroom kits are available for certain models, sometimes reducing the required headroom up to 4.5 inches. Just ask your garage door specialist and technician about your options!
» For new construction, what size should my garage opening be, roughly?Depending on the type of garage door, your opening should be the same size as the door you wish to purchase and install. Always keep in mind that the door fits against the opening from the inside.
» If my garage door slightly hangs in the opening, is this normal?It’s quite typical for a garage door to hang about 4 to 6 inches into the opening. This ensures consistent tension on the cable, preventing separation or migration from the drum or pulley. If your garage door operates with an electric opener, this additional distance can be adjusted, so the door is pulled completely flush with the opening, which would provide extra clearance.
» How much does a new garage door cost?There are so many factors that contribute to the overall cost of a new garage door installation, including: model, size, material, decorative options, and site conditions. That’s why Door Ace offers free consultations that breakdown the expenses for an accurate estimate. Keep in mind that garage door replacements can even be covered by homeowner’s insurance!
» Can I fix my garage door myself?If you have experience installing and repairing garage doors as part of your work as a contractor, you’ll be able to service your own door. However, if you’re a builder but not super familiar with garage door set-up or components, you should always opt for a garage door specialist in your area to prevent any potential damages or accidents that will compromise your system.
» Can I integrate my old garage opener with my new garage door?Whether your new door services a residential or commercial property, just about any garage opener can be installed with a new door.
» How long does it take to replace the springs on my garage door?Depending on the amount of wear, tear, and tension your garage door springs are experiencing, a spring replacement can take anywhere from 1 to 2 hours.
» Is garage door service and repair covered by my homeowner’s insurance?More often than not, in the event of theft, damage, fire, or vandalism, homeowner’s insurance will cover your garage door maintenance, repair, and/or replacement–depending on your policy. However, intentional damage to your garage door, which can include certain natural disasters and automobile accidents, will not be covered by your homeowner’s insurance. Always ask your policyholder about your options!
» Why does the cable on my garage door keep coming off?A spring with too much or too little tension can cause issues with other components and the overall operation of your garage door. Springs with excess tension will pull cables off the drum, while springs with not enough tension will cause cables to unwind.
» How long do garage door springs typically last?On average, residential garage doors typically open and close 4 times a day, and according to a 10,000-cycle torsion spring, this means your garage door springs should last at least 7 years.
» How often should my garage door be serviced?At Door Ace, we recommend having a residential garage door serviced at least once a year–even if it’s not experiencing any obvious mechanical difficulties. For commercial garage doors, we advise more frequent servicing because springs and motors pose higher risk to vehicles and personnel if not kept in perfect working condition.
» Can I use the old tracks on my garage door?Although some garage doors can be retro-fitted to existing tracks, the vast majority require new ones. More often than not, when you choose to reuse old garage door tracks, your garage door will likely lack proper spacing.
» How thick should my garage door be?Typically, your garage door’s insulation is crafted from Styrofoam or polyurethane. Garage doors with Styrofoam insulation come in thicknesses of 1⅜”, 1¾”, or 2” (35 to 51 mm). Polyurethane-insulated garage doors have a thickness between 1⅜” and 2” (35 and 51 mm). Most of these garage doors are 1⅝” or 1¾” (41 or 45 mm) thick. Our Door Ace technicians will provide the garage door with the ideal thickness for your home or building based on an inspection and assessment of your structure.
» How long does a garage door replacement take?Surprisingly, new builds and replacements are fairly quick installs. Depending on the size of the chosen garage door, a replacement can be completed in less than 3 hours. Keep in mind that more customized solutions will typically take a little longer to install.
