Sidonie Aiglentina. Garage Door. September 20th, 2017.
I have been involved in numerous garage door lawsuits where many different reasons for an injury have occurred. Having been retained as expert witness for both plaintiff and defense, several common factors have been observed. In many cases, unqualified individuals have attempted to repair or install garage doors. They have lacked the knowledge, skills or even the basic required tools to perform the work safely and properly. I have been hired as an expert by garage door manufacturers and installers to defend claims that they are not responsible for alleged product defects. In most cases, the components that failed, failed as a result of abuse or improper installation on the part of the end user. As stated above, the installation of many garage doors is not appropriate for an untrained person. An exception to this relates to "do it yourself" garage door kits that are sold at local home centers. A homeowner could install the door because these kits do not come with a professional quality package of hardware that should or would require special knowledge for the installation. These kits do not typically employ torsion springs that would require special knowledge, proper tools, and working skills to install. The doors are typically for light duty use. Professional installation services are often available through a home center to assist a homeowner in need of a specialized installation. As with most trade specific tasks, years of experience working as a professional installer qualifies tradesmen for their contracting license. The average homeowner watching a few television shows that give rough explanations of how to install garage doors is not usually qualified to install his or her own door. These "how to" television shows are no substitute for the many skills acquired after working in the field.
Canopy Doors: When a canopy door opens it swings outwards and then slides upwards into the garage ceiling. This leaves one third of the door outside the garage. The security of the door is enhanced as the pivot points are located down the door. These doors are easy to install as no tracks are required inside the garage and the entire door mounts to the door frame. Canopy Doors are available in timber, steel ABS and GRP. This garage door provides a good drive-through width.
While planning for a garage door, the first thing that comes to your mind is its building material. Customers are spoiled for choice as far as the building materials and designs are concerned. Wood and steel are the commonest building material. For each kind of garage gate material, you can get multiple options for its exterior look and feel. You can decide upon decorative windows, hardware, and insulation as per your requirements.
Several garage door manufactures have specialized in creating the look of carriage doors using the standard garage door format. Some manufactures use standard rolling panel construction that has a carriage door pattern designed into the garage door. Using modern materials especially steel will make this type of garage door both secure and very durable. The use of solid one piece overhead garage door construction gives the carriage garage doors an authentic look. This older style cantilever door opens outward at the bottom and rotates upward as on solid door. This method of construction works well when using an all wood door construction.
