Below are some of the most Frequently Asked Questions about garage doors and openers we have encountered here at The Door Company.

How long does it take to install a garage door and a garage door opener? Can I do it myself?

When installing a new garage door, professionals usually take three hours to a whole day at the most, depending on the planning beforehand, weather, size of the door, complexity, and various factors. Garage door openers, on the other hand, need one and a half up to three hours, but if you’re using existing brackets, this might go faster.

For faster, safer, and efficient installation, we strongly recommend that you have it done by professionals. Ask our trained experts here at The Door Company for more information and assistance and we guarantee the quickest and hassle-free installation in the Georgetown, Austin Texas area.

Should I have my garage door painted?

If your garage door has already gone through rust, strong rains and winds, and is fading from sun exposure, then it deserves a face lift. Adding paint not only improves the overall appearance, it also adds protection against harsh weather. If you have a wooden garage door, it is definitely a must to have a nice, evenly applied finish, whether it’s paint or varnish. The amount of paint needed will depend on the door material and size and it’s the same color as the last one.

When my garage door stops closing or there’s a squeaking noise every time it moves, should I get it checked? Can I fix it myself?

Your garage door might need to be oiled or have a misaligned track or broken part if you hear certain noises every time you close or open it. To be certain of its actual problem, it is better to have experts run a thorough inspection and have it fixed as soon as possible. Since garage doors can be dangerous when not handled properly, we advise all our customers not to take matters in their own hands.
