How to Find the Right Garage Door Opener

Garage door installation in Las Vegas

With new garage door installation in Las Vegas, you will have the benefit of updating the physical appearance of the exterior of the home. A garage door is one of the most noticeable features on a home’s exterior, so you can enjoy a dramatically beautiful improvement when you make this upgrade. However, when you want to enjoy improved functionality with your new feature, you may also want to update your opener.

Think About the Weight of the Door

In some cases, you may be able to use the older opener that you currently have installed, but this is not always feasible or advisable. For example, if you have upgraded from a lightweight aluminum door to a wood door or an insulated option, your new door may be significantly heavier than your previous door. The power of the opener may need to be upgraded in order to accommodate the weight of the new feature.

Consider Special Features

When you take the time and spend the money investing in a new garage door, you may also want to upgrade to a new garage door opener. Some truly fabulous options available on the market, such as those with a touch-pad entry access for walk-up entry as well as online or app-based features allow you to open and close the garage door remotely for added benefit.

Request Professional Assistance

Upgrading your opener is the perfect way to add more functionality to your new garage door, but you may not want to install the new opener on your own. You can request professional assistance for recommendations about which system is right for you, and you can request help with the installation of the new garage door opener.

Protect your home against damage from high winds.

While Las Vegas is protected from hurricanes and tornadoes are rare for the area, we do experience some extremely high winds from powerful thunderstorms from time to time. These winds can cause serious damage to your garage, home, and property as well as put you and your family at risk. Taking a few steps to wind-proof your home can reduce the chance for damage and help keep your family safe.

During high wind conditions, wind can quickly change direction and wildly fluctuate in speed. This can cause stress on all parts of a building and test the strength of construction of your home. Having a well-sealed house can help prevent damage from wind inside your home and debris that is carried by the wind.

Since our specialty is garage doors, let’s start there. Garage doors (particularly two-car) are vulnerable to damage from high winds. A partially open garage door during high winds is especially susceptible. If you suspect your door is not secure, it’s probably a good idea to have it inspected by a professional. For an existing door, there are fitted bracing kits available to provide additional support. There is also the option of having a new, stronger door installed which is not only more secure, but can add value to your home as well.

Your roof is another part of your home that may be vunerable to high winds. It’s important that your roof is properly secured to the walls of your home. Winds hitting the walls of your home create an uplift effect that can be strong enough to tear the roof off your house. Have your home inspected by building professional to see if specially designed connectors should be installed.

Also make sure the sheathing of your roof is secure. Enter the attic to check to make sure the nails penetrate the trusses and rafters. Additional nailing may be required.

Windows are the next obvious areas that wind can penetrate. For anyone whose home is exposed to high winds consistently should consider having impact rated windows installed to protect against flying debris. In extreme conditions, temporary plywood covers could be used.

Make sure the doors to your home are strong and hinged properly. Glass sliding doors, and French doors should be of concern during windy times and stayed clear of during high winds.

Lastly, take note of the the trees or objects that may be dislodge or broken during high wind. Stow away any yard furniture, barbecue grills, tools, toys, and anything else that could become a flying missile. If you are planning to plant new trees in your yard, make sure they are tied down and try to choose varieties that can withstand high winds.

Remember, if your garage door is damaged by wind or other elements, contact the experts at Precision Garage Door for garage door repairs or new door installations.
