SAME DAY SERVICE
Garage Doors & Openers

Your garage door does a lot for your home. It helps you to maintain high energy efficiency and prevents you from losing heat or cold air in the winter or summer, respectively, when it is installed properly. A broken garage door also poses a security threat to you, your family and your property. Lastly, a broken garage door in Virginia Beach invites stray critters into your garage, such as rats, roaches, or even the occasional stray foxes that have been spotted in several neighbourhoods.

Garage Door Styles

There are many different styles of garage doors that are suitable for the home or a business.

Residential Garage Doors

There are so many different choices for residential garage door styles because homes in Virginia range from older colonial styles to more modern styles.

Garage doors that have a mosaic design on them using colorful windows are another look for mid-century modern architecture in the area. They are customizable to match your home. Contact J&S Overhead Garage Door Service to learn more about how you can design yours to create curb appeal.

Another popular style in Hampton Roads are insulated glass doors. They come in a variety of levels of opacity so you can have better control over the climate of your home. If you want to have more privacy, then you can opt for a design that is more opaque. What is nice about this style is that it makes a space feel more open. If you have converted your garage to living space or a creative space, then this is a great way to allow more light in to make the space feel more expansive. The downside, obviously, is that you cannot store valuables in your garage as they would be visible.

Residents in the area remember some of the most recent hurricanes, such as Matthew and Florence, that caused minor damage throughout Virginia Beach, Norfolk, and the rest of Hampton Roads. More hurricanes are affecting the southeastern part of Virginia. Wind-load garage doors are designed to stand up against wind better than typical garage doors, and can also come in the beautiful carriage house style or other styles that you are looking for. You also may even be required to have a wind-load garage door installed, depending on where you live. These garage doors can also come with insulated impact glass windows.

Commercial Garage Doors

There are many commercial garage door solutions for any building. Ribbed commercial garage doors with no windows, and various industrial designs and are very popular as a one-size-fits-all type of door. Insulated commercial garage doors with a high R-value are also a great choice and come with an option of an insulated window to optimize your energy efficiency.

 

There are also options for industrial garage door materials. You can choose aluminum, steel, or glass functionality or durability of whatever it is that you need.

Frequently Asked Questions 

If you don’t see the answer here that you are looking for, then please give us a call. There are myriad types of garage doors, so we would be happy to listen to your specific problem and send a technician out to help you.

What are some of the most popular garage door materials?

There are four main popular garage door materials: steel, wood, vinyl, and aluminum.

 

Heavy duty metal garage doors made out of steel are durable and may last as long as you own your home. Even so, many companies offer generous warranties on their manufacturing. Many steel garage doors are finished with an embossed wood grain pattern to soften their look. They are also the most economical garage door type.

 

One of the disadvantages of wood garage doors is that they are very expensive. And they also require more maintenance - wood is a natural material, and is thus more susceptible to rotting, chipping, splintering, or warping.

 

A wood composite garage door is an environmentally friendly alternative that is also very durable and affordable. Depending on the type of composite, the mixture could be approximately 80% recycled wood fibers with expanded polystyrene insulation. 

How long does it take to install a garage door?

Typically the installation process lasts anywhere between 3 to 4 hours depending on the size of the garage and the specifics of the project. A repair can take less time. One of our J&S Overhead Garage Door Service technicians can give you a better approximation based on your specific needs.

How do I protect my garage door during inclement weather?

In recent years more severe storms have hit the eastern Virginia coast. A few times within the last couple of years we have had to brace ourselves for hurricanes and flooding particularly in the low lying areas in Pungo and Norfolk. If you are concerned about water getting into your garage, then give us a call today so we can weatherstrip your garage doors. We use flood-proof techniques to help prevent water from getting into your garage.

Because garage doors are lightweight they are more susceptible to tearing off in high winds, before hurricane season you want to check to make sure that your garage door closes all the way and that there is no gap at the bottom. If there is, then give us a call today so we can seal that for you. Having a gap at the bottom of your garage door makes it more susceptible to damage during severe storms.

What are some good tips to help me maintain my garage door?

There are some things that you can do to maintain your garage door so that you can enjoy using it as long as you own your home.

  • Inspect the rollers twice a year and have them replaced every seven years, depending on how often you use your garage door.

  • Because the life of a garage door is based on how many cycles from open to close it goes through, use your front door or other entrances in your home instead of your garage door when coming and going.

  • Have a garage door technician lubricate your garage door once a year to keep them working smoothly.

If you use common sense and don’t store anything heavy against your door, apply force, let kids play with the buttons or any other egregious behavior, then your garage door should stay in relatively good working condition for about 10,000 cycles.
