Have Christmas Cheer with a Quiet Garage Door!

The best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear.” – Buddy the Elf.

One Torsion Spring or Two?

There is nothing more frustrating than jumping in your car to leave or coming home after a long day at work and discovering your garage door will not open. Many times, when this happens, your torsion spring has broken. Your garage door will be extremely heavy and will not open easily. This is when you want to call a local garage door company, like Baldwin Garage Doors and Gates, that you can trust to get the repair done not only quickly but right.

We recommend having 2 torsion springs installed but, is it really worth the extra money? We think so! Your garage door will operate just fine with only 1 spring in place. The second spring acts as a kind of insurance policy. When one breaks, the other spring will ensure that your garage door will still open and close, making it possible for you to get your car in or out of your garage. You will not be stuck, giving you a more flexible timeframe to have the broken one replaced.

If you are in need of a spring replacement, give us a call at (515) 650-7833 and we will have your garage door working smoothly and properly again. We offer same day, evening and weekend appointments that fit your needs, as well as 24/7 Emergency Service.

7 Signs That It’s Time To Replace Your Garage Door Weather Seal

All garage doors come with bottom weather seal at the time of installation, but like all things, over time, the seal starts to break down and no longer does the job it was designed to do.

Here are the 7 signs to look for when determining when it is time to replace your weather seal:

  1. Your garage feels colder than usual
  2. You notice visible distortions in the seal, such as color change or cracks
  3. The seal no longer bounces back and there is a gap between the garage door and the floor
  4. Pieces of weather seal break off when touched
  5. Water is entering your closed garage door
  6. Leaves and debris are entering your closed garage door
  7. You notice a gap at the bottom corners of your seal

If you are seeing any of these signs, give us a call today at (515) 650-7833 to schedule a free estimate or appointment to replace your weather seal.
