What materials are garage doors made of?

You can achieve your desired aesthetic, and our team is here to help ensure you choose the right type of garage door for your home.

What are the different types of garage door construction?

Steel garage doors are made in different ways, with many having a single sheet of steel to form the door. Other steel garage doors have a front and back panel to add more rigidity. We sell and install the best types and brands of garage doors.

How important is insulation in a garage door?

Your garage door should be insulated for a variety of reasons. An insulated garage door helps to control the temperature in your garage and allows less heat to escape during the winter and less cool air to escape during the summer. An insulated garage door will reduce the amount of energy your home uses to keep you comfortable. Insulated garage doors also reduce noise from the outside of your home. The R-value represents the amount of insulation your garage door has. In the cold climate of Lake North and Millcreek, we recommend a well-insulated garage door.

How do I clean my wood garage door?

Wooden garage doors are beautiful, but from time to time, they need to be cleaned. A yearly cleaning is often enough, and you can touch it up during the rest of the year. You can count on the professionals at Delta Garage Door for garage door cleaning, garage door parts, garage door opener repair, garage door springs, garage door installation, and more. To clean your wood garage door, start by removing any dirt, mildew, and chalk. Wash the garage door with a diluted solution made up of one cup of mild household detergent mixed with five gallons of warm water. After you are finished, rinse the door with clear water and allow it to dry.

How long should my garage door springs last?

Torsion garage door springs have an expected lifespan of around 10,000 cycles. A cycle is defined as opening and closing your garage door once. Steel garage door springs undergo tremendous force each time your door is opened or closed. Eventually, the springs will crack and break, and you will likely hear a loud banging noise when this event occurs. Most garage door accidents happen while replacing springs, so this is not a task you should attempt to perform on your own. The amount of time your garage door springs will last depends on how frequently you use the door.

Can you help me repair my broken garage door spring after hours or help me with a garage door emergency?

Yes, we are here to help if you have a garage door emergency. We offer 24/7 emergency garage door services in Salt Lake City. Broken garage door springs are very dangerous, so give us a call if you have a serious problem that cannot wait until the next business day.

Do you replace garage door opener remotes?

We can get you a new garage door opener remote if yours has become lost or no longer works. We offer Chamberlain garage door openers, LiftMaster garage door openers, Genie garage door openers, Craftsman garage door openers, and more.

What does my garage door warranty cover?

My garage door doesn't open or doesn’t close?

If your garage door will not open or close, you need to contact our team. We can determine whether your garage door can be repaired or needs to be replaced. Your garage door might need servicing or some new parts. When a garage door does not open or close, the issue is often with the opener and not the door itself.

Will you give me advice if I get stuck on my garage door or opener installation?

We can give you advice if you have trouble with your garage door or installation. While we recommend leaving garage door services to our professional team, we are here to help. If you are ready to give up on the job, we would be happy to finish it for you so you can ensure the job is done right.

Do not attempt to repair, remove, or adjust a garage door spring or cable because this is a very serious job that could cause serious injury or death. Contact our team immediately if you have a frayed garage door cable.

Why do my garage door window or door sections leak water?

Many garage door window frames contain seals designed to keep water out of your garage. Sometimes these windows or sections of your garage door are not 100% leak-proof, and water will enter your garage.
