Garage Door Inspiration Found at the Front Door

Recently, we were asked to match new garage doors to our client's beautiful wood front door.  Yes, we are a garage door service and repair company.  However, we are often inspired to capture the beauty and creativity found in the North Bay.

Traditional Carriage House Doors could have been cost prohibitive for this project.  We were able to match the front door with C.H.I. carriage style panel design doors.  The cedar wood grain finish is a close match to the existing front door.

Additional carefully selected features were the Arched Stockton Glass Design, Spade Decorative Hardware and custom stained 1"x4" wood cedar trim around each opening.  The final result are professionally installed 9'x7' Model 5916 C.H.I. Garage Doors that complement the existing structure.

Call Hanson Overhead today for a budget friendly solution to your new custom garage door aspirations!

Hurricane Disaster Relief

As a Northern California garage door company, we understand the risks of living in the Bay Area.  A major earthquake can impact our area at any time.  Our family and friends along the Gulf of Mexico to the Southeastern Seaboard have been impacted by 3 major hurricanes.  In the Florida Keys alone, 10,000 people are without homes, which is 1/8th of the population.  Puerto Rico will be without power for months.  Islands we may have visited in the Caribbean have received catastrophic damage.

At Hanson Overhead, we invite our clients and community to reach out and help those impacted by the hurricanes.  We never know when we may need their help during an earthquake.  Consider donating to American Red Cross or for our furry friends, The Humane Society of the United States.

Hanson Overhead Garage Door Tips for Garage Door Safety Month

It’s Garage Door Safety Month!!  

Did you know that June is Garage Door Safety Month?  It’s that time of year when we are getting outside a bit more and doing things around the house.  Maybe you’re using your garage door a bit more – getting out the lawn equipment or getting the bikes out for a nice ride?  It’s a great reminder to make sure your garage door is maintained and working safely.   
Here are just a few things you can do to make sure things are safe and running smooth: 
  • Avoid keeping clutter around the sides of your garage door.  For example, golf clubs, lawn equipment, brooms and rakes, or anything that could possibly fall over and create an obstruction while the door is in motion.  This will help prevent accidents that could result in your garage door coming off track.   
  • Make sure your garage door opener’s safety eye sensors are clean of debris and are aligned properly.  These sensors trigger the garage door to reverse direction when closing, should there be something that crosses the threshold of the door.   
  • Do a safety reversal test.  There are two safety reversal tests that you can perform to ensure the garage door opener’s safety functions are working properly.   
  • Safety Eye Sensor Test.  While the door is moving towards the closed position, break the invisible beam going across the garage door opening.  You can do this by waving your hand in front of one of the sensors.  (Please be sure to keep hands and feet clear of all moving parts and hardware).  The door should reverse once the beam is broken.  If it does not reverse, please call a professional to troubleshoot. 
  • Contact Reversal Test.  Place a 2x4 board flat on the ground, in the middle of the garage door threshold.  Push the button to close.  The door should reverse upon contact with the 2x4.  If it does not reverse, please call a professional to troubleshoot. 
  • Preventative Inspection   
  • Check the cables on either side of the garage door.  Make sure they are not fraying.   (Please remember keep hands away from moving hardware of the garage door) 
  • Check for cracks in the sections of the garage door.  Whether you have a steel or wood door, cracks and tears are bad news for your garage door.  Not only is this a safety issue, but sagging sections can also cause unnecessary wear and tear on the garage door opener. 
  • Inspect the garage door for cracked, worn, or broken hardware.  Call a professional to replace any worn or broken hardware.  
Hanson Overhead Garage Door Service is committed to your safety for 2017!  We’ll handle all the safety inspections and preventative maintenance for you.   Call today for our 44 Point Signature Garage Door Tune up!  For the month of June only, we are offering a $50 discount!  Just mention this article!
