When you shop around for a new garage gate each manufacturer will vouch that their product is the best. Dont be tempted by catchy advertisements or unrealistic promises. Always keep in mind that your new garage gate should last for at least 10-20 years depending upon the usage rate and maintenance frequency. Steel garage gates are most common. Lower costs ease of maintenance and a variety of available designs make steel garage doors the obvious choice. In general no painting is required though you can have a garage gate painted if you wish. You can also get a variety of designs such as raised panels flush panels and so forth. As most garages share an interior wall of a home insulation inside the garage door can help in cutting down your heating/cooling expenses.
The Delden DTR 1748 is probably the companys best garage doors. The dual steel panels have a galvanized 25 gauge external panel and a 27 gauge interior panel that sandwiches 2 inches of polyurethane insulation. This gives the door a very energy efficient R-value of 15 plus. Installing a Delden Garage Doors of this quality will mean that you will save significant energy if you planning to heat or cool your garage. You will certainly find that your workshop will be comfortable no matter what the weather is outside. These garages will cost you more money but in our opinion they are worth it.
This story was published in the "Far North Dallas Advocate" magazine in the March 2011 issue. It had a happy ending but how easily it could have turned tragic. What if the wife had not awakened during the night? What if the husband did not have a rifle? What if the robber struggled with the husband and took his rifle away? A simple robbery could have easily turned into a homicide. Now ask yourself this: "What if that had been your home and your family that were threatened?"
I have been involved in numerous garage door lawsuits where many different reasons for an injury have occurred. Having been retained as expert witness for both plaintiff and defense several common factors have been observed. In many cases unqualified individuals have attempted to repair or install garage doors. They have lacked the knowledge skills or even the basic required tools to perform the work safely and properly. I have been hired as an expert by garage door manufacturers and installers to defend claims that they are not responsible for alleged product defects. In most cases the components that failed failed as a result of abuse or improper installation on the part of the end user. As stated above the installation of many garage doors is not appropriate for an untrained person.
