Installation Using 32″ Radius Tracks

By |January 21st, 2017|Central NJ, New Garage Door Installation, Special Tracks, Springs|

This customer wanted to make the stairs going up to his attic fully useable, but the tracks of his old garage door were in the way. He was also concerned about people in his family using the stairs and touching the extension spring that was there previously.

Doors Done Right installed 32″ radius tracks (instead of the standard 12″ radius tracks) giving much more headroom to people walking up the stairs. We also installed a new torsion spring system to replace the old extension springs. This provided for proper functioning of the 32″ radius track system, and eliminated the hazards of loaded extension springs being right alongside the stairs.

Fimbel Architectural Door Composite Carriage House Garage Door Installation in Princeton, NJ 08540

We Installed this Beautiful Composite Carriage House Garage Door in Princeton, NJ

This customer had a door on the side of their house that was very visible from the street as you drive up to the house. They wanted something that really added curb appeal to their property, that maintained the architectural integrity of the home, and that was durable and maintenance-free.

Fimbel Architectural Door Specialties’ “Roaring Twenties” series garage doors are put together much like a real wood door, with an insulated laminate core, a precision machine PVC face, and design overlays inlaid into the face. The result, in our humble opinions, is the carriage-house-style door that most resembles a real wood door than any other on the market, short, of course, of a real wood door. These doors are super low maintenance. They do not require regular refinishing like wood doors do. They don’t soak up water, and they don’t rot like wood doors do.

We Started Out By Reframing the Openings

Installing a new garage door properly requires having solid, flat interior jambs that are in good condition. This house had jambs in place that were too short to properly accommodate the bearing plates of the new torsion spring system we were installing. We probably could have made do, but we call ourselves “Doors Done Right” for a reason. We believe in doing top quality installations to ensure that our customers’ doors ard opners are installed neatly and safely for the long haul.

We also were installing somewhat thick doors and the concrete ledge at the bottom of the door would have become an issue with the old jamb thickness. We installed new 1″ x 4″ pine jambs, drilling pilots and fastening the tracks with extra long lag screws so that they went securely into the frame of the garage, not just the jambs.

Modern Style Garage Doors in Steel are a Great Way to Add Modern Flare without Breaking Your Budget

High-quality 3-layer flush (or Modern Grooved) garage doors are a great fit for many modern-style homes, but cost far less than other options, such as aluminum-and-glass type garage doors. These doors are durable, economical, quiet, and can offer excellent insulation value for houses with rooms above, or adjacent to, the garage.

Lose the Panel Design, Get Modern, and Choose Your Color

This customer originally had a gray-painted door with a raised panel design stamped into the steel. We think he made a great choice in opting for a flush door in Hunter Green. He was originally going to paint the door, but we offered him the option of getting the door factory finished in the green color. We had color samples on the truck, and we were able to determine that it was an exact match for the trim around the door.

The door color makes the door a beautiful accent piece that matches with the other trim, but does not blend in to its surrounding in a boring way.

Why You Shouldn’t Buy Your Garage Door Springs from a Big Box Store

By |July 30th, 2016|Big Box Stores, Competitor Quality, Garage Door Repair, Princeton, Springs|

We were called out to do a garage door repair in Princeton, NJ. The homeowner had a handyman replace 4 springs on his 2 doors “no more than a year and a half ago.” The handyman used springs that were too small for the door. That’s not surprising.

What is surprising is that one of his springs broke after less than a year and a half!

spring from a big box store

 

We are used to seeing garage door springs (and other parts) from the big guys go after just a few years. But this is the first time we’ve seen a spring break this quickly.

Big box stores seem to have no issue sacrificing quality for cost savings – especially in areas where the customer might not know the difference. Small cost-savings are acceptable to them, even if the difference in quality is huge. Parts manufactured with low quality recycled materials contain impurities that compromise their structural integrity.

Your garage door springs are under a lot of tension and when they break, they are dangerous. Using inferior quality springs is a major safety issue.

For High Quality Garage Door Spring Replacement in Princeton, NJ, Call Doors Done Right

Doors Done Right uses the best quality springs that we can find. They are:
– Made in America
Not made from recycled steel
– A longer length than is spec’d for most doors
– Made of a thicker wire than is commonly used
– A larger diameter than many springs on the market
– Made with double end-loops for longer life

All of these improvements add up to a safer, far more durable spring that is exactly the right size for your door.

We installed this beautiful carriage house garage door in Kendall Park, NJ.

The people we installed the door for have done a great job fixing up the outside of their house with new siding, shutters, windows, etc.They wanted an overlay-type garage door, with a specific panel design that they saw on another house. We worked with them to choose a Coachman Collection door from Clopay. It’s a beautiful door and really finishes off the home’s exterior nicely. It’s durable and virtually maintenance-free, with a richer, more realistic look than many other options out there.

From experience, they knew that using a local contractor, instead of a big box store, was the right choice. We made sure that we did a neat, safe, durable installation for them, leagues beyond the work we’ve seen from the big guys.

We use the same brands, with better materials, better hardware, better workmanship than the big box stores – all at a lower price!
