Have A Question About Your Garage Door? | Frequently Asked Questions

Fixing, replacing, or building a garage door is a major expense for any homeowner or business, so questions are absolutely normal. At Door Ace, we aim for 100% satisfaction for each and every one of our customers. Here are some of the most common questions we receive when it comes to garage door repair, maintenance, and installation!

» 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.

Garage Door Service & Repair FAQ

When it comes to services and repairs for your residential or commercial garage door, you’re bound to have some queries about the issue(s) at hand, the process, and the solutions. At Door Ace, we’re more than happy to answer any questions concerning your garage door–we even got a head start by creating this FAQ just for you!

The overall cost of servicing and repairing a garage door is highly dependent on a variety of factors, including the type of springs, size, weight, and material of your garage door. When there are broken chains or cables that cause your garage door to bounce or collapse more quickly than normal, you are looking at a more intricate solution. At Door Ace, we provide free estimates and quotes up front–with no hidden costs!

Again, this specific garage door repair can depend on the type of spring that needs to be replaced. However, at Door Ace, we’re proud to provide flat-rate garage door spring replacements for an efficient and cost-effective solution for homeowners, property owners, and business owners alike.

More often than not, in the event of theft, damage, fire, or vandalism, homeowner’s insurance can cover your garage door maintenance and repair expenses–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. Be sure to ask your policyholder about your options!

If you have a garage door that operates using two springs, then it’s a good idea to get both replaced even if only one is broken. More often than not, the 2nd spring will break within 6 months of the 1st one, and purchasing two new springs will save you a bit of money in the long run.

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.

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. As a result, high-cycle garage door springs can have longer lifespans of 14 to 20 years!

At Door Ace, we recommend having your 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 their springs and motors can become dangerous to vehicles and personnel if not kept in perfect working condition.
