Fauna. Garage Doors. October 10th , 2017.
There will be times when your door may fail to operate. It happens from time-to-time no matter how well it is installed and maintained, so there is no need to panic. More often that not, the battery in your garage remote is dead or it is some other simple garage door repair. It is also a good idea to keep additional power back ups with you such as a manual device (generator, UPS, etc) or additional batteries. Or, you can manually open the garage door until you figure out what the is causing the problem.
These doors can be chain driven either manually, or can be automated using electric motors. Roll up doors require more frequent evaluation and servicing than a standard overhead garage door. The tracks that are mounted vertically on both sides of the garage opening need maintenance and cleaning more frequently, and are often blocked by foreign obstructions or damaged by collision of some type. These roll up doors are often held open by some type of ratcheting action. Proper balancing of these doors is often more important than an overhead type of door, as the weight of these type of doors is normally much greater than an overhead door.

With a torsion type of spring, the energy is imparted or removed by rotating the spring clockwise or counter clockwise depending upon the direction of usage. With professional installation, the complete loading of the torsion spring is controlled by the garage installer, and is determined by the weight and size of the garage door that it is operating. When this type of torsion spring fails, it remains attached and intact to the location on the horizontal control rod where it was mounted. I have not heard of or seen any torsion spring fly across a garage, creating injury from failed components as with the stretched older style garage door springs. This is not to say that injuries have not occurred with the torsion style spring. The installation of this type of spring is generally safe when left to a trained garage door installation professional. Severe and serious injuries have occurred when untrained, unqualified individuals have attempted to install or service this type of spring.
There is a wide range as well when it comes to choosing the material of the garage door. You can choose any one from Steel, fiberglass, plain old wood or polyethylene base don your requirements. Steel doors are the strongest and most durable, whereas high density polyethylene doors never dent, rust or fade and do not require to be repainted. Fiberglass doors can also be an option if you want some natural light to pass through as these materials are translucent and also maintenance free. Conventional wooden doors would well fit into your budget and requirements but the low initial cost might be deceiving as the maintenance cost is relatively higher than the other options; wooden doors require regular check ups for warps and rotting.
