Wooden doors are good choices for residential use. They can effectively regulate temperature and can easily enhance a home’s curb appeal. It is important to choose one with proper sealing, however, as wood is susceptible to pests and rotting. The hardware that comes with the doors also factors into the price, especially those that utilize advanced technologies to provide extra benefits. For instance, the Innovation Series of steel doors from Raynor is equipped with the patented Finger Protection System for added security. The system consists mainly of specially-designed joints, which cannot be found in any other brand. It is offered only by reliable suppliers of garage door parts in Buffalo and elsewhere that have been licensed by Raynor.

In particular, the automatic reversal system, which has been required in all residential and commercial garages in the United States since 1991, needs regular attention. It is a safety feature that stops a garage door from closing if it detects an obstruction. If it starts emitting loud noises, it could mean the tracks simply need lubricating, but it could also be an indication of serious damages. The movement of garage doors while they open or close should be closely observed. For instance, if a door “shimmies,” or shakes from side to side, its springs could be lodged with debris or have been damaged from excessive wear and tear. On the other hand, if a garage door falls too quickly, its springs could be loose or its cables may be broken.
