Your garage door is likely the largest opening into your home, which also makes it a potential vulnerability to your family and important assets. Many folks throughout the Greater New Orleans area think it's important to secure their homes by using a manual lock with their garage doors. In many instances, we commend this approach – manual locks certainly do add a level of security to your home. However, these days, more often than not manual locks are not needed. This might raise a few alarms for our good neighbors in places such as Slidell, Covington, Mandeville, and even Gulfport, MS. Why and how could one of the most respected names in garage doors in New Orleans say that manual locks are not needed? In short, because most of our customers and neighbors in the region have motorized garage door openers.

Many garage doors built and installed throughout the Greater New Orleans region are known to last for decades. But it's not uncommon for our neighbors in the region to notice, over time, individual hardboard panels begin to bow, despite the rest of their garage door being in seemingly pristine condition.

Does that mean you have to replace your entire garage door, just because some of the panels need some work? There was a time when the answer was yes. In fact, it was once believed that deteriorating garage door panels signified a larger problem - that the door's stiles and rails were in need of major repair. In other words, a few deteriorating panels meant you had to get an entirely new garage door, which can be incredibly pricey.

But that is no longer the case, thanks to the work we do at American Garage Door of Louisiana.

On your quest to make valuable renovations to your home, look no further than your garage. Replacing your garage door with a modernized door is an extremely affordable option for increasing the value of your home.

The average garage door replacement - in Greater New Orleans - costs between $700 and $1400, and most homeowners we've worked with say their new garages make a huge difference in increasing the curb appeal of their home.

But as you look to replace your garage door, what renovation options should you look toward? One of the most attractive options, that delivers a tremendous return on investment, is choosing an energy efficient garage door that is insulated.

Are you looking to install a new garage door into your Greater New Orleans home? If so, are you sure you know how much headroom is required?

If you want to install a torsion-spring hardware, it's recommended that you have a clearance of 12 inches (305 mm). However, if there's only 4 ¾ in. (121 mm) to 12 in. (304 mm) available, then we personally recommend that you use a dual-track system specifically designed for low headroom.

If you're equipping your garage door with an electric door opener, you should add 2 in. (51 mm) to "standard" lift movements. For "low-headroom" systems, you don't need the additional 2 inches.

Of all the components of your home, your garage doors are the largest and heaviest moving objects. As such, they need to be regularly adjusted and maintained in order to ensure their safety and performance.

Homeowners and business owners throughout Greater New Orleans who don't regularly maintain their garage doors will typically experience a problem in one of two areas:

  • The garage door itself
  • Or the garage door opener

If either of these systems become faulty, you risk placing your family in danger of a serious injury or worse.

The only way to ensure your garage is in optimal condition is to have it regularly inspected and maintained by a garage door specialist. Here at American Garage Door of Louisiana, we offer a unique and comprehensive preventative maintenance plan, designed to not only save you money by addressing issues early on, but also to give you the peace of mind of knowing your garage door is in tip-top shape.
