Heavy-Horse-Barn-frontAs a proud Winnipeg company (for generations now), we were absolutely thrilled to be able to provide our services in the new Heavy Horse Barn at the McFeetors Heavy Horse Centre at Assiniboine Park.

We were not surprised that the contract came our way, however. As Winnipeg’s overhead door specialist, we sell more and different types of doors than anyone else around, and we have our own manufacturing facilities and unparalleled installation experience. We knew the job, which included rolling and overhead doors in a rustic brown finish, as well as a pass-through man door inset into the overhead carriage house door, would present a significant challenge. We used jackshaft operators for the overhead doors, which use a side-mounted motor that eliminates the central trolley unit and work quickly, efficiently, and quietly. The track unit for the sliding doors was custom manufactured for the application.

Heavy-Horse-Barn-sideWe’re extremely proud of the end result. While the multi-day installation was challenging, there was never any doubt that we could get the job done, on time and on budget. On your next visit to the park, have a look at the doors in the horse barn and the carriage house and let us know what you think!

When it comes time to install new garage doors for your home or business, Overhead Door of Winnipeg should be your first call. Contact us online or by telephone at (204) 233-7167 today to speak with a consultant and find out what we can do. Our showroom is located at 470 Des Meurons Street in Winnipeg and in the Southview Industrial Park in Brandon.

At Overhead Door of Winnipeg, we’re always looking for new ways to keep our customers and their property looking great and functioning properly. Recently, we’ve entered an agreement with Crelogix allowing financing for larger projects that may represent a significant challenge for our customers – those that cost more that $1500.

In our experience, many of our customers run into trouble with larger project costs, and delay them until they can pay for them in cash. Unfortunately, this can compromise their building security, functionality, and aesthetics. For many of our customers, this can present a significant problem.

Our work was recently featured as part of the Manitoba Homebuilders’ Association Fall 2015 Parade of Homes.

We provided and installed the two large garage doors that feature prominently on the front of the home located at 28 Waterstone Drive. As Winnipeg’s premiere Overhead Door Company, we’ve had our work featured on the Parade on several previous occasions.

This year, it was our pleasure to provide the doors for this beautiful property – with a Walnut finish and a V5 Panel Stamp (which we developed ourselves, to provide the visual impact of wainscoting to the doors’ surfaces). This finish was chosen to complement the rest of the home’s exterior, which we’re sure you’ll agree they do. The doors are steel with R13 Polyurethane insulation, providing excellent heat retention and noise exclusion.

Mechanically, the doors are operated by two ½ horsepower belt drive units from Lift Master. The entire installation took a single day, and the doors operate seamlessly, with very little noise.

When it comes to residential overhead door installations, Overhead Door Winnipeg has the products, the facilities, and the expertise to take on any job. We’ve been doing business here for generations, and expect to do so for generations more

So when it comes time for garage doors for your dream home, or repair or replacement of your existing door, Overhead Door of Winnipeg should be your first choice. Contact us online or by telephone at (204) 233-7167 today to speak with a consultant about our services, which now include financing for installations over $1500.

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.
