Rollshutter2We’re used to seeing roll shutters in commercial applications, but recently there has been a trend toward including them in residential designs.

As more people are installing them, they’re finding that the properties that make them ideal for commercial applications make them good for home use, too.

Because they’re usually made of metal, roll shutters are much more secure than the windows and doors they cover. They’re opaque, so would-be intruders don’t know what’s inside. Most criminals are opportunists, and will be deterred by the extra hassle that roll shutters pose to them. They’ll also protect your home in the event of a severe weather event, by ensuring that your windows remain secure even if the winds are high enough to throw debris around.

Roll shutters keep sunlight out, which keeps air conditioning costs down. In winter, they’ll help keep the heat created by your furnace in. They can also greatly reduce the level of noise that gets into your home from outside, which makes them ideal for shift workers who need to sleep soundly in the daytime.

Better than Blinds or Curtains
Roll shutters can be opened or closed at a moment’s notice, to allow air and light to flow into the house, or to completely close your windows and doors. Because they close completely, they provide maximum privacy for you and your home’s occupants.

Overhead Door of Winnipeg can help you keep on top of this trend. Contact us online, by telephone at (204) 233-8621, or visit our showroom at 470 Des Meurons Street in Winnipeg. If you’re in the Brandon and surrounding area, call us at (204) 725-0540 or visit us at 17th Street East & Patricia Avenue in the Southview Industrial Park.

All overhead doors, even the quietest ones, make some noise. We just push the button to open or close the door and ignore the sound it makes. Sometimes, however, a noise can slowly progress beyond the normal sound of operation, becoming an indicator of a problem with the door or the opener. Many times, we miss the warning signs, and the first sign of a garage door problem is a total failure.

noisygaragedoorNext time you open or close your garage door, listen for these signs of impending trouble. Many times, a little prevention can restore your garage door’s trouble-free service.

Noise in the Operator
The operator is the electric motor and the drive mechanism that raises and lowers the door. A little humming is to be expected, but listen for excessive groaning or grinding sounds from the motor box. If you hear the metallic rattle of loose chain hitting the rail of the opener, have it adjusted. They can stretch over time.

Noise in the Door
Grinding – often indicates a problem with the hinges or the rollers. They’ll need to be adjusted or replaced.

Squeaking – some minor squeaks are normal, as the hinges, rollers, springs, cables and pulleys move up and down with the door, especially as the changing seasons cause wooden materials to expand and contract, affecting the door’s alignment slightly. If the noise seems to have gotten louder, there’s a chance that the door needs lubrication or adjusting.

Crashing Noises/Jolting Door – a major problem, like a broken spring or the cable off the drum can cause this. So can a misadjusted force/limits adjuster.

Increased Livability
An awning extends your building’s windows and doors into outdoor space visually and functionally. An awning over your patio will shelter it from sun and light precipitation, allowing you to use it when you’d otherwise have to head inside.

Climate Control
awnings-home2Awnings over your windows and doors keep the sun off the glass, which will reduce the amount of heat that gets transferred to the interior of your home. As a result, your air conditioning costs will be less.

UV Reduction
The sun’s ultraviolet radiation can be quite damaging to your home’s interior – particularly flooring or fabric furniture placed near a window. By using awnings to provide shade, you can protect your floors and furniture from damage and discoloration due to sunlight.

Curb Appeal
In addition to being functional, awnings can add a splash of colour to your home’s exterior. They provide accents to the rectangular shape of your home’s windows and doors, making the appearance of the exterior more welcoming.

Overhead Door of Winnipeg is proud to be the area’s exclusive source for Durasol Awnings for residential applications. We offer SunGuard® Topaz and SunCatchers® in a wide array of styles and colours to meet the diverse needs of our customers.

To find out more about the range of awnings we sell and install, contact Overhead Door of Winnipeg online, by telephone at (204) 233-8621, or visit our showroom at 470 Des Meurons Street. In Brandon and surrounding communities, you can find us in the Southview Industrial Park at 17th Street East & Patricia Avenue, or call us at (204) 725-0540 or toll free 1-888-215-3473.

A Cost vs. Value Report was conducted in the U.S. to compare the average cost of 36 popular remodeling projects with the value those projects retain at resale.

Nationally, garage door replacement resulted in 88.4% of costs recouped on average. Compare that to a more common renovation project such as a major kitchen remodel, which results in an average of 67.8% of costs recouped, and you can see why garage door replacement is not only one of the more effortless home renovation projects that you can tackle, but also one of the more lucrative projects.

Homeowners may not naturally think of garage door replacement as a home renovation, but with the array of styles and models available today, the benefits of a new garage door could extend beyond the resale value of your home.

Increased home security, increased energy savings, enhanced appearance of the home, and a reduction in time spent on garage door maintenance are just some of the benefits a new garage door owner can expect.
