Our earlier materials from the 'first wave' of COVID-19 in 2020 can be found below.

 

While these are still relevant today, some topics are being updated to better reflect our evolving understanding of the disease. In particular, while keeping surfaces disinfected will not cause any harm, this has been de-emphasized in our newer content.

Personal Health

A basic understanding of COVID-19, how it spreads, and what every individual can do to protect themselves and others is critical to mitigate the spread of the virus among communities.

What are garage doors made of?


Garage doors have been made from wood, steel aluminum, and fiberglass. Today, there are even newer rot resistant composite materials. Each of these materials has its benefits, though wood and steel doors are by for the most popular homeowner choices. Contact us to ask about your Indianapolis overhead door material options!




How often should my Indianapolis garage door be serviced?


As the largest moving piece of equipment in your Indianapolis home, your garage door gets used a lot. Some people use it more frequently then the front door. In order to ensure a properly working door and operator, you should have your overhead door and operator serviced every year. The noises your door or operator make are your initial "warnings" that something is not quite right. The longer you put off the necessary service, the more damage may result. Regular service can vastly extend the life of your garage door and operator.




How long should my garage door springs last?


The most common torsion springs have an expected life of about 10,000 "cycles". A cycle is one opening and closing of the garage door. The steel spring experiences tremendous force each time the door opens or closes. Gradually, the steel fatigues with each flex. and eventually cracks and breaks, usually releasing its stored energy in an instant with a loud noise or bang. In overhead door repairs, most accients occur during the replacement of the springs. While many door companies quote a flat fee for spring replacement, we prefer to quote a range and charge for the actual cost of the spring that is on their particular garage door. (Springs vary in price by more than $30.00/spring) Also, if one spring breaks and they were installed at the same time, it is likely that the other will need to be replaced at the same time. This not only is the safest option, but will save you time and money as if one goes, the other is soon to follow anyways.




How do I release the garage door from the operator so that I can open the door by hand?


With the garage door fully closed, simply pull the red release cord down toward the floor. Always take special caution whenever you release the garage door opener if the door is not in the fully closed position, since the door may want to slam closed when released. If at all possible, do not release the garage door when open, except for emergency or security pruposes, then close the door with caution. Some older openers may not have a release cord and may need to be released by pulling down a handle, a spring loaded clip, or even possibly unbolting the arm from the door and opener. If you do have an older door that is difficult to disconnect you may want to replace the opener with a new one that has an easy pull release cord




My garage door goes down some and then goes back up, what is the problem?


If your garage door is having an issue going down and seems to reverse itself, keep an eye out for your operator lights. If they blink when this happens, this is usually a sign that your safety beams at the bottom of both sides of your garage door are having issues. Sometimes they just need to be cleaned off or have slight adjustments. If that is not the problem, you know they are lined up and clean, call us and we can visit your home in Indianapolis and surrounding areas and diagnose the problem fast!




What safety features are important in a garage door opener in Indianapolis?


Your Indianapolis garage door is the heaviest moving object in your home. So the safety features of the device that lifts and closes the door are very important. For the opener to work, certain safety devices must be installed. This is true regardless of the type, size or brand of opener you choose. The safety devices are built into the garage door system to prevent the door from closing when an obstruction is in the door's path. Most openers auto-reverse the door when an infrared beam detects any obstruction in the door's path. The US government mandated the use of non-contact safety protections on all residential, motor operated garage doors in 1993. Other safety features are: - Rolling-code technology selects a new, non-repeating access code from among billions of possibilities every time the remote control is operated. - A keypad or touchpad outside the garage allows entry via a programmable code. If this feature doesn't come standard with the unit you choose, it can be added as an option later. - Many units have a simple doorbell style button for opening and closing the garage door. Others have a more complex control panel with keypad programming and vacation lock to prevent the door from being opened while you are away. - Most openers include a light, which should stay on for a few minutes after the unit is activated to allow time to get into the house. - Battery backup feature that continues to operate the garage door opener even when the power is out, helping residents, homeowners and property managers through unforeseen, inconvenient outages. Most backups last 24 to 48 hours of standby time.




How important is insulation in a garage door in Indianapolis?


Insulation is important in a garage door in Indianapolis for many reasons. Insulated doors help control the temperature of the garage allwoing less heat to escape in the winter and less to get in during the summer. This reduces the amount of enerty required to cool or heat your home which saves money! Insulated doors also reduce noise from the exterior of your home. In addition to helping control the temperature, insulation adds strength to your overhead door while reducing exterior noise. The amount of insulation a garage door provides is represented in its R-Value. This represents its resistance to heat flow. It is important to select a garage door with an R-Value that is consistent with your local climate and lifestyle in Indianapolis and surrounding areas.
