How Much Will Commercial Doors Cost Me?
Installation costs depend on the intricacy of the project, the headroom, on whether there will be an electric motor or not, as well as other aspects particular to each project. In other words, there are many variables to consider. We recommend that you contact Omega for a qualified installer. Ask for names of some long standing clients so you can verify how satisfied they were with past work.
Can I Paint My Garage Doors?
Dark colors absorb radiant heat from the sun creating extremely high surface temperatures. DO NOT PAINT the raised overlay (vinyl) on the door using paint with a light reflective value of less than 56.
How Do I Know if My Door is Well Balanced or Not?
You should be able to easily lift the door open with one hand, regardless of its size or the material it is made of. If you notice the door is harder to open, this means that its dead weight is heavier than in the ideal range of 8 to 14 lbs. (4 to 7 kg) because the springs are no longer counterbalancing the door properly.
If you decide to paint your door yourself, instructions that outline how to do it are available online. It is important to note that oil-based paint (alkaloid) with a matt or semi-gloss finish does not exist in the market (unless an industrial paint is used).
What is an Energy Saving Door?
The advertised R-value of a garage door means very little if the door does not have a complete thermal break system and a proper weather seal system around all four sides of the door and between the door sections.
Is a Steel Door Sturdier than an Aluminum Door?
It all depends on the thickness of the steel. This particular point deserves special attention. Make sure steel thickness is expressed in terms of millimeters, rather than gauge. Another important consideration is the type of impact. It is obvious that if a car hits a door at 10 km/h, it will heavily damage the door, whether it is made of steel or aluminum.
