Garage door prices may vary depending on their types and brands. Residential garage door companies charge between $500 to over $1,000 for regular wood or steel doors, but if you fancy an aluminum or wooden door made of a rare kind of wood, it can easily set you back up to $10,000.
Most garage door companies can accommodate oddly-measured garages. You just have to mention it to them and they can make a custom-made garage door perfect for your garage. They also have to have the correct measurement so they can make the door in the right size.
Safety cables are barely noticeable but are very important none the less. While they may not play any role in the operation of a door in good condition, their absence can lead to injuries in cases when springs break while the door is still closed or is about to be closed or opened. The safety cables keep snapping springs in place.
Automatic garage door systems can be controlled manually in cases when there are power outages or when the door opener unit fails. The procedures vary depending on the type of door and opener involved. Our experts say that you have to refer to the manual to find the specific instructions on how to disengage the door operator or opener.
