General Garage Door Questions

Some of our most frequently asked questions!

What is the difference between a Roller Garage Door and a Sectional Garage Door?

This is a question that is asked a lot!
A Roller Garage Door is best described as a garage door curtain that rolls up into a cylinder, like rolling up a carpet! This then sits at the top of the garage entry in that rolled up shape, when fully open.

A Sectional Door is different as it is constructed usually from 4-5 solid panels. This means it cannot 'roll up' and instead slides up and then parallel with the garage roof. When it is fully open, a sectional door looks like it is laying flat and under the roof of a garage!

Are Colorbond and Bluescope Steel the same?

Great question! Colorbond is a colour coating and finish to Bluescope Steel.
This allows you to not only pick a colour that you like but also a great finish and protection to the Steel!

Do you selll doors with Thermal Insulation or Insulated Garage Doors?

What is the Standard Size of a Single and/or Double Car Garage Door?

FUN FACT! There is no standard sizes for garage doors! It may seem outrageous but there is no regulations on standard sizing for garages or garage openings, which means that garage doors then need to be custom made to each opening.

This means there are no standard sizing for a single or double car garage, each door is measured and made for your unique garage opening!

Question on Servicing your Garage or Gate

Need to Service your Garage Door? Here's your questions, answered!

Why do I need to have my garage door serviced annually?

FUN FACT! Garage Doors are commonly the largest mechanical item in your home!

Much like most things in life, like your annual car service, regular maintenance can ensure that you have a high quality and safe product in your home! An annual service is commonly a condition of manufacturers warranties and regular servicing can identify and prevent any possibly issues before they cause costly damage.

Our priority for our customers is to have a high quality and long lasting product, so that you get the best performance and safety out of your garage door. Especially as a garage door is commonly the largest mechanical item in your home, we want to ensure that you have a door that is of the highest safety for your family

What if my door sounds fine and doesn't have any problems?

Even when operating normally, a garage door will still require regular servicing and preventative maintenance to ensure free operation. Regular maintenance not only promotes longer product life and ensures the manufacturer's warranty is maintained, but also greatly reduces the risk of inconvenient operational failures and costly repair bills.

What does a general service involve? What is serviced?

In garage doors such as Sectional Garage Doors, the springs can become fatigued, meaning that a dangerous amount of strain are being transferred to your remote control system. Included in our general service is the re-tensioning of your spring system to counteract this effect.

Our fully qualified service technician will also reprogram your drive unit in line with new parameters, check all fixing points, make mechanical adjustments and lubricate all moving parts.

Does Quicklift service industrial and commerical garage doors?

Yes! We definitely do and can help ensure that high cycle doors will maintain a good product life. There's nothing worse that a garage door breaking down for a multi-level apartment building and 20-30 tenants having their cars trapped!
