The first overhead garage door to open in an ascending motion was created by our company in 1921. We followed this innovation with the first powered garage door opener in 1926. In 1934 we opened our doors for commercial and retail business. We have been proudly providing garage door service to the Houston area since that time.
We Fix Garage Doors
Having a garage door that operates properly is a key factor to having a productive day. Overhead garage doors are made to last, but there may come a time when a garage door repair is necessary. Even if the door that needs fixing isn’t an Overhead door, one of our highly trained technicians will still be able to fix it.
One of the most common garage door repairs in Houston is a broken spring. Most doors can move up and down because they have torsion springs that aid the movement. There is a lot of tension put on these springs, and over time they can break. For the door to operate again, a new spring would need to be installed. The work of doing a garage door spring repair is best left to a professional garage door company in Houston like Overhead Door. Putting in a new spring is dangerous, so it is well worth the money to hire a professional.
Another common problem is a garage door that won’t open. A variety of factors could cause this, so calling in a professional to diagnose the situation and make the repairs is the best move to make.
We Install Garage Doors
A new garage door can transform the look of a home. A new door can also add some energy efficiency to home by keeping the garage warmer or cooler depending on the time of year. Overhead Door provides garage door installation in Houston and offers a wide variety of new garage doors to choose from.
A budget is typically the driving force behind making big decisions like purchasing new garage doors. Overhead Door has many doors to choose from made from a variety of materials. Working with one of the company’s sales staff will make it possible to narrow down the list of doors to something that will meet the needs of home and stay within a set budget range.
Safety is a factor to consider when purchasing custom garage doors. The garage is often the most used entrance and exit to a home, so having the proper safety sensors installed is a must. This is especially important for kids and pets being around the home. There are some different options for the track and spring that can be included with a garage door installation. This is an area that is worth spending some money on. The higher quality tracks and springs will make the door quieter and help it operate more smoothly. The easier a door is to open and close, the less stress the system will have, and the longer the door and opener will last. Working with a dedicated and well-respected garage door company such as Overhead Door will make the installation process go more smoothly.
We Install Garage Door Openers
Openers do not automatically come with a garage door when it is purchased, so the sales staff will present a variety of options for garage door openers. Security is important for garage doors because it is the main way into a home. When lining up a garage door opener installation, find one that has a rolling code feature. This changes the code of the opener each time it is used. This helps to prevent anyone from capturing the code to the door.
Power is essential to a garage door functioning. The weight of the garage door can dictate how powerful the motor in the opener needs to be. When working with a custom garage door company, this is something to discuss. Convenience is also important when purchasing a new garage door opener. Many models now have wireless technology that allows the owners to operate the opener from anywhere that has a WiFi connection. This is helpful for allowing family members or repair staff into a home from a distance.
When garage door openers are properly matched to the door, and they are maintained each year, they should operate smoothly for a long time. There will come a time, however, when a garage door opener repair is needed. The staff at Overhead Door can repair anything whether it is the sensors, motor or some other issue.
We Have a Variety of Garage Door Styles
Visiting an Overhead Door showroom is the best way to figure out which door is the right one for any home, but there is some work that can be done on the front end of the process. There are three main styles of garage doors to choose from: traditional, carriage house, and modern. The traditional doors have a very classic look with raised panels and many window options. This style will match with just about any home. The carriage house style doors look like swinging barn doors, but they function just like any other door. These doors often have some hinge and handle accents that give them a great deal of charm. The modern garage doors match well with modern homes. They have a full panel of glass and are made out of aluminum. These doors really make a statement. All three styles will add to the curb appeal of any home.
There are also several materials that garage doors are made from, so this will be another choice when making a purchase. Steel is a common material for doors because it is a very durable material. Steel doors are also easy to maintain so they require very little work. Vinyl doors are an option. They do not need any maintenance, and they will not rust or dent. These doors are not the best in areas of extreme heat, so they might not be the best choice for Houston. Wood doors are a beautiful option that will enhance the look of a home, but they require a lot of maintenance. They need to be painted or stained and water sealed every few years. Fiberglass doors give the look of wood, but they are much easier to maintain, and they will not rot.
