extend the life of your springs!

Staten Island Garage Door Springs

Most homeowners desperately want to help with the maintenance or repair of their garage door–  I’m not sure why, but there’s just something about it that obviously appeals to them.  We don’t recommend most maintenance items since they’re very specific and she be left to the professionals; and we certainly don’t recommend any repairs since they’re almost all ridiculously dangerous, which would also be left to the professionals.

But you know what the eager homeowner can do?  They clean their springs.

Garage door springs collect a lot of dust, grime, and other stuff that can lead to premature failure.  By keeping up on the cleanliness of your springs, you can easily extend the life of them, thus making your life a lot nicer!

Removing Rust

Staten Island Garage Door Removing Rust

If your garage door has started to rust there is no need to worry. The rust may look bad, and is not something that should be left there, but it can easily be removed. We recommend sanding the rusted area down until there is no more rust. Then you need to apply a sealant that will help keep the door from rusting again. Finally, you will just need to paint the area with an appropriate latex paint that matches the rest of the garage door. If you would prefer a professional take care of the rust removal for you, call Staten Island Garage Door Removing Rust

The value of section replacement

Do you have children?  If so, I’m sure at some point they’ve done some level of damage to your garage door with a baseball, hockey puck, or something else.

Don’t have children?  Well, have you ever had just a portion of your garage door damaged, and didn’t want to pay to have a new garage door installed while simultaneously wanting that eyesore to be done with.

That’s where the value of garage door section replacement comes in.  Rather than have your entire sectional garage door replaced when one little problem comes up, you can have just the offending piece replaced!  It’s a much better option, and restores your garage door to all of it’s greatness!

One spring broke; what do I do!?

Staten Island Spring Repair

One of your garage door springs just broke.  What do you do?  First off:

Now that you’re nice and calm, here’s what you do:  Call Staten Island Garage Doors right away, and we’ll send one of our expertly trained garage door spring technicians out.

You should replace the broken spring, as well as the other spring while you’re at it.  Some people think we say that just to get more money out of you, but in reality, we would tell you to just replace them one at a time if that were the case.  You end up saving time and hassle in the long run by replacing both at the same time since springs are kind of like tires–  They wear at the same rate, and if one goes out, the other(s) may be on the way.

There.  In less that 200 words, what you should do when you have a garage door spring break.

Curb Appeal and Your Garage Door

Staten Island Garage Door upgrade

When you think of curb appeal for your home your garage door is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. You probably think of the yard and the accessories adoring the exterior of your home. However, your garage door is actually the most prominent thing people see when they are driving up to your home. So one of the easiest and fastest ways of making the entire home look better is to either upgrade of fix up the garage door. If your garage door is more than 10 years old then we highly recommend replacing it, if it is newer than that but doesn’t look so great you would be surprised at how much a coat of paint can do to make it look like new. If you are looking for ways to improve the overall appearance of your home then the garage door is a great place to start.

Garage Doors Testimonials

Staten Island Garage Doors

I wanted to install one of those metal gates that rolls down in front of my store. I wasn’t really sure what the process was so I called this company and had them come out. They explained which gate would be best and even installed it the same day. Very happy.
– Milton

My son ran his car into the garage door and I needed to have it replaced. I called Staten Island Garage Doors and they were out right away to put in a new door. Took no time at all and the door works perfectly. I will save their number for the future.
– Sally

Two thumbs up!
– George

My roll down door was getting stuck a lot as I was trying to roll it down. I called these guys and they were able to fix it quickly. So glad I didn’t try to fix it myself, I would never have figured it out.
