Why does steel rust and what can I do to avoid it?
Steel materials rust when they're exposed to oxygen and moisture for long periods of time. This combination of dampness and air is catastrophic for steel components. It's best to invest in galvanized steel parts. They are zinc coated and, therefore, better protected. However, they still need to be properly maintained to avoid unnecessary damage.
How "green" can my garage door be?
That depends on what type of paint your local hardware store has to offer. On a more serious note, making your garage door as "green" as it can be is an applaudable effort. Getting it insulated will go a long way as far as lower energy bills are concerned. Some manufacturers also produce some garage door parts from recycled materials, so to answer your question - as green as you'll want it to be.
Which type of batteries should I use in my garage door remote?
Like in most remote controls, you'll need to replace the battery from time to time. It is always a good idea to choose good quality batteries that are corrosion resistant and will need to be changed less frequently than cheaper ones. Some openers support a smartphone app that can save you the trouble of using a remote. Contact our experts to learn more.
