Bothell Garage Doors | Something we don’t charge for

Whenever you get a garage door service with you, you’ll get an invoice.  The invoice lets you know what was done while we were working on your garage door, how much everything was, and sometimes, it even has things that we recommend you look into in the near future.

Something that you will never find on our invoices, though, is actually one of the most important things that we bring with us on every job.  With every job, our technicians bring their expert level of training, their ace attention to detail, their years of experience, and the expertise and finesse that they’ve developed from so much time on the job.

So why don’t we charge for that on our invoices?  Well, we could think of quite a few reasons, but really, the answer is simple:  This is what sets us apart from a lot of the other garage door companies in the area.  Other companies may be qualified to help you with your garage door woes, but ultimately they may only have people that are slightly qualified compared to our technicians.

Take that a step further–  We have expertly trained techs that not only have all of the experience and no how necessary to help you with your garage door, but we don’t charge with it–  Instead, we back our services with our satisfaction guarantee–  Because we want you to know that we stand by all of our work, and we’re certain that our work will speak for itself.

If you’ve gone with another garage door company in the past, did you feel they were experts?  Did you even feel like they were competent?  Probably not if you went with someone else. . .   But we choose to stand out from the pack by being the best at what we do.  Give us a call and we’ll show you how it’s done!

Bothell Garage Doors | Benefits of a Jackshaft Garage Door Opener

Thus far in our blog we’ve discussed three of the four different styles of garage door openers, and the only one left to discuss is the jackshaft garage door opener.  We saved this one for the last for a few reasons:  It’s not very common, it’s very unique, and most people aren’t too interested in switching over to one.

So you may be wondering why bring it up at all.  Well, to start, let’s discuss the jackshaft opener first:

All about the Jackshaft Garage Door Opener

This style of garage door opener mounts on the wall of your garage rather than overhead, which sets it far apart from the other styles of openers.

Jackshaft Opener

Using a novel system, it is able to operate your garage door while mounted on the wall, offering a unique, reliable garage door opener experience.

What are some of the advantages of a jackshaft garage door opener?

A jackshaft opener offers many advantages over the other styles of garage door openers:

  • Increase the amount of vertical clearance you have in your garage.  This can be done for many reasons, including the want for more vertical clearance for storing large vehicles, or if you would just like a more open air environment because you have something set up in your garage.
  • The jackshaft opener also saves space since it has a smaller “footprint.”  By taking up so little space, you have more room around your garage door for storage.
  • Jackshaft openers can also save you money on repairs to other garage door components as these parts may either not exist in the jackshaft system, or they may not have the same amount of stress.

Jackshaft garage door openers are not for everyone, but they can be very useful for those that need more vertical clearance, or even more storage space around their garage door.

Bothell Garage Doors | Belt Drive or Screw Drive Opener?

Last week we discussed some of the differences, pros, and cons of two very common styles of garage door openers.  This month, we want to take it a step further and compare what we view as the winner of the last debate with another style of opener that we view as a contender for the best style you can get.

Belt Drive vs. Screw Drive

There is an obvious difference in the way that they operate–  Belt drive uses a belt driven motor, while a screw drive uses a novel screw system that drives the door open and shut (a topic we’ve written about before).  Here are some differences:

  • Noise Level:  Screw drive wins in this category, as it tends to generate less noise.
  • Reliability:  Screw drive openers are the most reliable style of opener you can get; not to say that belt drive aren’t reliable. . .  They are, just not as reliable.
  • Speed:  Both operate very fast in relation to chain drive openers.
  • Security:  They’re both very secure options.

As we’ve mentioned, we view the screw drive opener as the ultimate option, and now hopefully you can better understand a few of the differences.

Bothell Garage Doors | Chain drive or belt drive opener?

If you are in the market to put in a new garage door opener you are probably wondering what type of opener is going to be the best for you. For residential properties it is going to be best to have either a chain drive or a belt drive opener. The two openers operate on the same principle, the opener itself is on the roof of the garage and then it uses either a chain or belt to lift and lower the door.

The difference between the two is simply that one uses a belt to pull the door up while the other uses a chain. If the door is heavy a chain will be better but in almost all other cases the belt drive is preferred because it is far less noisy!

Bothell Garage Doors | Recommendation for a sturdy garage door opener

We get asked often about our professional opinion on garage door openers, and rightfully so–  Not only are we experts, but we also have a lot of experience in dealing with garage doors, and we can tell you the styles that we have to fix often (vs. the styles we don’t fix nearly as often).

So, which type of garage door opener do we repair the least?  Simple.  Screw Drive Garage Door Openers are hands down the most sturdy and reliable style of opener on the market–  They are usually a slight amount more than the cheaper belt drive and chain drive counterparts, but it’s worth it in the end when you save plenty on the costs of repairs.

Bothell Garage Doors | Same Day Service = Us Going Above and Beyond!

You know what shocks me often?  When I hear about how other garage door companies don’t offer same day garage door service.  That’s a mind blower to me, as I feel like that is the company simply saying, “We don’t like you.” And who are they saying that to?  Their customers.  It’s crazy.  Same day service is about so much more than just offering same day service for you and your garage door–  It’s also about a level of respect for you and your time; it’s also about us showing you that we want to impress you; it’s also about how we go above and beyond for each of our clients.  Think of how polite it would sound if you called in with an emergency, and we replied with, “Yeah. . .  We don’t come out the same day.  But I can schedule you in at some point.”  That’s not being respectful of you or your plight, so we don’t do that!

That’s why you see a lot of mention on our site about same day service–  We go above and beyond for you every time!

Bothell Garage Doors | Easy Upgrades

The way your garage door looks can massively affect the way people perceive not only your home but you as well. So if you feel like your door is a little run down or just doesn’t look as new as you would like there are some things you can do that will make the door look worlds better.

You can paint the garage door, this really adds a lot of class to the door and makes it look brand new in most cases. You can also add some adornments to the door like decorative hinges or adding light fixtures on the outside of the door on either side. There really are a lot of ways to upgrade the door with out getting a new door or spending an arm and a leg!

Bothell Garage Doors | Benefits of Garage Door Insulation

Have you been vying for an addition to your home? Garages can be transformed into virtually any kind of room. Aside from housing your cars and excess stuff that you don’t want in the house, garages are great spaces for workshops, offices, or even playrooms. Whatever you decide you want that extra room to be, you can accomplish the change with some furnishings, perhaps a rug or two, and good insulation for your garage door.

Insulating your garage door is essential if you want to make the garage a habitable place. Hot and cold weather, wind, sleet and rain, are no match for a good weather-strip seal on a garage door. Perhaps you live in New York, and you’ve been dying to transform your garage into your personal art studio; this dream can come to fruition, but it will only be successful if you prepare your garage for the snowy, wet winters and scalding, humid summers. No one wants to be painting a watercolor masterpiece the likes of Monet would approve of in a damp, hundred-degree garage.

Likewise, you don’t want your kids playing with toys in a room that’s almost cold enough to see your breath. Even if you utilize your garage like the majority of Americans to house your miscellaneous belongings and perhaps a vehicle, insulation is still a good idea to maintain the temperature of the main house.

The list of examples goes on, but the fact remains the same that if you want to turn your garage into a livable, enjoyable room, you must insulate. There is also the option of adding an air conditioning and heating system for a truly top tier garage transformation. No matter what you decide to do with your garage space, it’s a good idea to replace that weathered weather-strip with a new one, pronto!
