Guide To Garage Door Specialists In Auckland

Garages are a handy addition to any property, whether they are used as a ‘Man Cave,’ for storage or just parking the car.

Like every part of your home, a garage door is going to need maintenance during its lifetime. It's the most likely part to need your attention regardless if it is a roller door, tilt door or sectional door.

Rather than attempt a bit of DIY, using an Auckland garage door specialist to professionally complete the job is a smart move.

Why Hire an Auckland Garage Door Doctor?

All garage doors are going to be exposed to the elements, but the location of your property and the position of your garage upon it can determine just how much maintenance you door may need.

Homes in Auckland tend to be hit frequently with the fronts of storms, with plenty of wind and rain, while the suburb of Onehunga is known to have occasionally flooding. Then to top it all off, there is the beautiful sunshine we in the City of Sails are known for!

At some time you are going to need the services of a professional garage doctor who can do regular maintenance, carry out needed repairs or even install a new door if your one has done its dash.

If you are unsure of what needs doing, you can arrange for a repairman to come and inspect your door and give you a free quote.

What Maintenance Does My Garage Door Need?

Homeowners are able to safely do some basic maintenance on their garage door to keep it working well and looking great. If you have a metal door, a good wash with water and a scrubbing brush several times a year (more if it is exposed to a sea breeze), will help remove any contaminants which can cause your door to corrode.

A wooden door should be cared for according to the manufacturer’s instructions. For doors in general you should keep the guide tracks clean and free of grease and dirt to help let the door open smoothly. Finally if your door has seals around the outside, keep these clean and free of debris to maintain their weather tightness.

For any other maintenance, get a garage door serviceman in. They are able to complete the job safely and quickly, saving you from all the hassle and time of having to research what you need to do, as well as avoiding the high likelihood of you having an accident. Jobs such as servicing the springs, the garage door opener and the remote are best left to the experts as doing some DIY yourself can void the manufacturer’s warranty.

Sometimes an old door is just not worth fixing due to its age and cost of repairs. With new doors costing almost the same as a large repair job, it can make financial sense to replace your door rather than fix. The great news is there are plenty of door types to choose from.

  • A sectional door opens up at a 90 degree angle, making it a great choice for a short driveway and one where you want to be able to park right in front of it.
  • A roller door is good for a short driveway and will give you more storage space up by the ceiling in your garage. It doesn't move backwards and take up room like other door types.
  • An insulated sectional garage door works well when you want your garage to remain at a more even temperature, for using it as a playroom or workshop.
  • A tilt door takes up the most space when it opens and at the top of the ceiling in the garage. They can be custom made for large or unusually shaped garages.

When your door needs the attention of a garage door specialist, post your job with us and let the tradespeople come to you!

Garage Door Colour Update Challenge Solved By Our Tradies

A simple colour update for her garage doors was all that one homeowner wanted. But it proved a little easier said than done until a “can do” tradie was found... The Job Paulette wanted to update the colour of her metal garage doors from what she called a “bland new denim blue” to a more striking ebony black. The Challenge Paulette contacted the garage door company to find out if, and how, the colour could be changed. They came back with two options; replacing the doors entirely at great expense; or powder coating at a cost not much less than new doors, and required them being taken away for two to three weeks. The Solution Not satisfied with these options, Paulette turned to builderscrack.co.nz to see if there were any other options. She already trusted the platform, having used it in the past to find some great tradies. For Paulette, the “ease of use is the best thing”, going on to say that “once you’ve used it the first time, it’s easy to go back and use again” and

Supply/install a sectional garage door to a semi-enclosed carport

Posted 1 week ago

We have a double-sized carport that we'd like to get a door and motor added to. We're OK with a good used door to keep price down. Aperture is 5.71m width, between the posts, and we guess a little bit of cosmetic fascia could be added around the new door too (but we're flexible on that, e.g. we could paint it etc). - Access is easy, it's flat and all concreted - We're not that fussed on material of the door - Some time in the next 4 weeks would be awesome if possible.
