Brush up your knowledge on this garage door FAQ page. Learn what garage door parts will possibly need to be changed along with the door and whether you will need torsion or extension springs.
What is opener rolling code technology?
This technology works to switch the access code automatically every time after the remote control is used. In this way, the risk of a potential intruder learning the code and getting inside undisturbed is eliminated. Most openers sold today are equipped with this technology.
What are the differences between chain, belt and screw drive?
The chain drive gives a warning whenever someone is about to walk inside because it can be noisy. A belt drive is the same as a chain drive but it uses a rubber belt so it is very quiet. The screw drive is very reliable as it has unmatched strength.
Why are backup batteries needed?
Backup batteries will ensure the garage door will continue to operate automatically even if the power is out. Once the power is out, the battery takes over so you will be able to get the car into the garage and will last for hours. Just make sure the battery is charged and replaced every couple of years.
Should I get torsion or extension springs?
The choice is not up to you but rely on the requirements of the garage door system. Depending on the weight of the door panel, you will need a torsion spring for heavyweight doors and extension springs for lightweight ones. Extremely heavy doors might need both.
What parts must I change when replacing the door?
If the new door is heavier, the specialists of our company in Rocklin recommend replacing the garage door springs. You might possibly need to replace the opener, too. Check the size of the tracks, rollers and cables. You might need bigger hinges, too.
