Garage doors can be operated manually (by hand), as well as automatically (by power assisted motor). In both cases, the proper operation of the garage door is determined by the proper balancing of the garage door weight, springs and related component hardware. An automatic power assisted motor cannot overcome an improperly balanced garage door. The weight of all garage doors is normally deceptive. Due to the fact that a properly functioning door appears easy to open and close, many users do not realize the combined overall weight until springs fail to assist the door in its operation. In all cases, regardless of the type of garage door, the entire system of hinges, track, hardware, and door opener work as a team. Problems with misalignment, shifting, or jamming can lead to problematic operation of a door. Counter forces imparted to a garage door, not engineered into the components, can lead to injury. Inappropriate maintenance or complete lack of maintenance has lead to severe bodily injuries. Forcing the operation of a garage door, when one or more components have become damaged or broken has lead to serious bodily injuries. In all cases, maintenance is a crucial and important aspect of proper operation of all door systems.
Traditional carriage garage doors are not really very good at keeping the elements out of any structure. In addition it is very hard to adequately secure the doors from forced entry. With the invention of the over head door the use of the traditional carriage garage doors design essentially ended. However the architectural appearance and design is very appealing to the eye. Many of the top garage door manufactures have designed over head doors that give the appearance of carriage garage doors but with all the benefits of a modern garage door.
The unique climate of the region brings stress to houses in Dallas-Fort Worth, and all of the cities around. Dallas homeowners are not strangers to fence and roof problems due to weather, as well as landscaping anxiety and lost windows due to hail. They also know that their garage doors undergo a lot of pressure. Their doors must be lasting enough to withstand possible hail damage on the surface of the garage door and the overhead door fixtures and hardware, warping due to extreme wind gusts and UV exposure, and parts malfunction from the high temperature fluctuations. If Dallas was voted as the city with the most weather hazards, then Dallas residents need the garage door with the most quality. This means that residents need to use special care when choosing which overhead door to acquire and which garage door company will be granted the installation job. If they don't order an overhead door that will endure the meteorological punishment of North Texas, they will soon regret it. Likewise, if they buy an overhead door of the highest quality, but use a new company that is unqualified and inexperienced to install the door, they may find their high quality door blown off, broken or split during the next wind storm. Improperly installed garage doors that come loose off the track during wind storms have been known to crash down on automobiles, or fly into neighbor's yards and cause property damage.
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.
