Roberto was very courteous and explained the details of what he was doing. He also pointed out a repair I might consider having done (replacement of the bottom panel of my door) and asked the office to follow up with me on this. Someone did follow up with me and since replacement of the bottom panel is not an option and I would have to replace the door, I decided that I can wait.
Steel garage doors are one of the most durable options that can be chosen for the home. These doors should carry at least a 24 gauge rating for strength. Steel can be painted or purchased with a backed on finish that will complement the color scheme of a home’s exterior. Steel garage doors can be good deterrents for would be thieves that want to gain access to the home through the garage. Steel doors can be quite heavy due to the materials used to construct them.

When I called to schedule the repair service, I was transferrd 5 times and spoke with 6 service reps. Each rep was very confused by my request to get my garage door repaired. One rep actually told me that Sears doesn't repair garage doors. I had to tell her that Sears installed the door. When I finally found a rep who could schedule my service, it took one week for the appointment.
I was very impressed by the high level of knowledge and how thorough options were presented. I was provided with a quote for a complete set of doors and accessories, a replacement of existing doors. I can honestly say compared to others James (Precision) has my utmost confidence. I am going to have Jim return so we can go over the quote and I want my wife to choose the window patterns. Very impressed.

GREAT Company to deal with. I wish any other contractor I've dealt with were even half as good as this company. A+++++++ all the way.read more

Here is an odd problem that I cannot figure out. I am handy with electrical stuff, but this one has me stumped. My small kitchen appliances all work on a single circuit, with 5 outlets. One of those outlets has a 20Amp breaker built into it with a test and resent button (I never understood what the test button is for). I only have a toaster, a floor lamp and occasionally a coffee grinder plugged into the circuit. Suddenly, none of the outlets work. Nothing new, no new appliances, the whole circuit went dead. I noticed when I trigger the reset button, there is an immediate click and it goes out again. I have tripped and reset the main breaker on the circuit board in the garage, nothing. Power gets to the outlet, but it doesn't work and there is no electricity in any of the 5. I un plugged everything. Reset the breaker on the outlet. It clicked again immediately, still no electricity. I changed out the outlet, with a new one with breaker built in which I bought today at Home Depot. Same problem. I tested for electricity, the outlet with the built in breaker receives 120v electricity coming in, but it always seems to be shorted out and does not send it out. I assume that all of the 5 outlets are connected inline, so thinking that if I went one by one, I'd be able to find a short. I opened all of the boxes, checked everything and all looks clean, new, no problems. I completely disconnected the two outlets that are closest to the main one with thereset button and nothing.Help
Step 5: Check for loose hardware, and tighten as needed. On swing-up doors, check the plates where the spring is mounted to be sure the screws are tight, and tighten any loose screws. On roll-up doors, check the hinges that hold the sections of the door together; tighten any loose screws, and replace any damaged hinges. Sagging at one side of the door can often be corrected by servicing the hinges. If a screw hole is enlarged, replace the screw with a longer one of the same diameter, and use a hollow fiber plug, dipped in carpenters' glue, with the new screw. If the wood is cracked at a hinge, remove the hinge and fill the cracks and the screw holes with wood filler. Let the filler dry and then replace the hinge. If possible, move the hinge onto solid wood.
Automatic doors require not only the installation of a heavy door, but the motor and cables as well. Automatic doors are much more common now because of their convenience, but in a case such as the heavy wood door, they are a necessity. A strong motor is required to pull up a heavy door. However, automatic doors are not without their faults -- they quickly become a manual door when the power goes out.
Because garage door springs and openers can degrade over time, it’s important to occasionally test this safety feature. With the garage door open, place a solid object such as a 2-by-4 board or a cinder block where the door will close. Never test any safety feature using your or another person’s body. With the board or block in place, press the close button. If working properly, the garage door should close on the obstruction and immediately reverse the closing operation when it comes in contact with it.
10The type of garage door shown provides the necessary lift assistance with a “torque tube.” If you intend to use an opener, wait to install the tube. Otherwise, install the torque tube according to the manufacturer’s directions. Roll up the door about 4 feet to check for the alignment of the tracks, and make any adjustments. Then tighten all fasteners.
I saw the plans during the Q&A of this proposed restructure and it seemed odd to me that the homeowners added a second story only above half of the house. I would think since they're must be spending around $700k for the project they should spend a little more and do the second floor above the whole house even if they only finish what is proposed now on the second floor they'd still have an unfinished area for the future home owners or for them to tackle when money is available. It would be a definite bump to the house value during the time of sale. Unless this has to do with zoning and FAR/lot size...
