Jammed Doors: Do you feel like your garage door has turned into a block of ice and wouldnt move? Cold weather can do this to your door. The moisture during the winter season causes the wood on the door to swell and also freezes the tracks. The solution is to increase the heat in the garage for about 30 minutes to loosen the tracks and the door as well. The heat will take away the moisture. If there is no heating equipment in the garage use a blow drier or vacuum blower to do the job. After opening the door clear the ice and water that has collected beneath the door.
Modern styles come in very many designs and shapes and can be flexible enough to meet your specific conditions. It is however important to note that the cost of them are likely to cost slightly more than the old manual ones. This however should not be a deterrent since the high cost is only a onetime cost that cannot be compared to the convenience and safety that they can offer.
And of course the roof should consist of 1 roof vent per 1 car in garage. Vents allow the lumber to breathe and not rot and buckle. If the garage door is over 16 feet in span it is recommended to use laminated veneer lumber as a header which supports the weight of the roof and overhead door. The header is installed above the garage door opening. A ½ horsepower garage door opener with two remote controls is also recommended to make life a bit more convenient instead of opening the overhead door manually.
Garage door styles are not likely to be a hot topic of conversation but with so many to choose from today they could well be! If you have decided to purchase a new garage door suddenly you take notice of every door you see! You may be quite surprised at the variety of styles and materials to be had! Take a good look at your house. Does it have arches and curves or is it boxy and straight-lined? Match the garage door to the home! If your home features wood trim or panels a matching garage door would be an excellent choice.
If you are thinking about building a detached framed garage with garage plans it is helpful to know the best construction features to use. For best results and to build the best garage plan it is important to use a 6 bag mix of concrete when you pour your garage slab. The 6 stands for 6 bags of concrete per yard mixed. Anything less than a 6 bag mix is not strong enough. Compacting the 4 inches of crushed stone is also important. Compacting the crushed stone assures that the concrete will be sealed air tight and will eliminate any cracking in the concrete slab. Before the concrete is poured be sure to use wire mesh reinforcement this mesh should lay over the crushed stone.
