No one likes to be interrupted and having to get out of your car and manually open your garage door is just like getting cut off mid-sentence.
How irritating! Luckily, there’s a solution.A convenient automatic roller garage door can add protection, comfort and ease of access to your home or detached garage.
Assembling and installing your easy to operate roller garage door is as simple as hanging a picture. A protective box above your garage opening stores the door, which moves on a guide up and down a shaft. When you enter or leave the garage, the door floats up the shaft vertically into the box. Because the door does not open at an angle, roller garage doors are perfect for homes with smaller driveways.
There are a wide range of roller doors on the market, so be sure to find one that meets your needs. If you are looking for maximum point-of-entry protection, you will want to consider a sturdier door. Think about how much security from intruders and protection from the elements the contents of your garage need. You will also want to consider the amount of insulation you want the door to provide in order to keep it cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
Automatic safety features come with most roller garage doors. Infrared sensors detect any movement in the garage opening when the door is in operation. If an obstruction is identified, the roller garage door will stop closing and reverse up. This is a great feature for small children and pets. However, a word to the wise: when you leave the house make sure the door closes all the way before you pull out onto the street.
The Genie garage door opener provides an added security feature through Intellicode, which changes the passcode transmitted to the roller garage door opener. This means no one can gain unauthorized access to your home or detached garage by stealing your passcode.
A big and bulky roller garage door can limit the available vertical space in your garage. Keep this in mind if you have large vehicles like an SUV or pickup truck.
Roller garage doors are easier to operate than sectional garage door because the panels that make up the door are lighter.
Each unit comes with a remote which opens and closes the roller garage door. When you are approaching your house, all you have to do is push the button and the door will be open by the time you reach it. All that is left to do is drive in, close the door, and carry on with your day.
Although reliable, roller garage doors may sometimes fail to operate properly. This will happen no matter how well the door was installed or maintained. The first troubleshooting tip is to check the battery in your remote before asking around for garage door repairs. We recommend always having keys to a backup point-of-entry incase the opener fails or the electricity is out. Always keep extra remote batteries on hand in your vehicle and a backup power source in your garage, like a generator.
