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.
