New Building

Our kids are extraordinary. Sometimes we have ones that go above and beyond their school work. Check out this research article submitted by one of our students:

With the variety of garage openers available today, how to choose garage opener may be considered to be a confusing task. People usually ask local experts like garage door experts abc to find out heir best options. However, one of the main considerations based on this decision should be based on the type of drive that is associated with the belt, chain as well as the mechanism that operates the door. In certain instances, the motor and its horsepower output may be important but more for industrial and commercial settings. Below are a few top tips you can use to choose the right garage-door opener for your needs.

The Drive Options

 

Chain-drive openers are typically the more cost-

Effective choice and are considered to be the more durable and popular openers available today. These types of drivers make use of metal chains on sprockets that will lower and lift the door. These chain openers tend to be a more affordable option, but, the strength along with the affordability factors are opposed by the noise these garage openers make.

 

The chain drives have been suggested for use in garage doors that are heavy as well as heavily insulated, one-piece wooden doors and oversized doors. The upgraded models are now available with chain-separators that assist in stopping the chain from making a noise against a track and have the ability to decrease the chain drive noises.

 

Screw-drive Openers

 

Another useful tip on how to choose garage opener would be a screw drive that consists of a metal rod that is threaded just like-a-screw to close and lift the door. Due to the fact that there are minimal moving parts, the screw-drive is usually a reliable option to consider. If the noise of a garage opener is of great concern to you, then the screw-drive option is rated as the middle in the pack. These are not as quiet as a direct or belt drive, but are far quieter than a chain drive.

These screw-drives require more maintenance when compared to the additional types. Regardless of having less moving parts, the metal, threaded rod meshes against a section on the drive that has plastic teeth that catch this threading. Without the correct lubrication, the rod wears out on the teeth and eventually strips the rod.

 

The garage door type that you own is another important consideration. If you have a one-piece wooden door the strain will easily wear the inner works and teeth on the drive. This means that the screw-drives are more effective with single garage or steel doors.

 

Belt Drive Openers

 

These openers utilize a rubber-like or rubber belt positioned on cogs to close and open the door. Due to the fact that these openers do not have metal parts, it has been regarded as the softest option available.

 

You may find that certain openers will open faster when compared to others, but every garage door will close at 7” in a second that is related to a safety requirement feature. In order to stop accidental damage or injury, every garage door opener must feature a reversing-mechanism that will be activated when the beam has been interrupted.

We asked for some recommendations on a few of the issues with the new building, and we want to say thanks to Amanda who recommended the Air Repair Pros to fix our air conditioning. This company is amazing. They were able to get us an appointment on the same day that we called them, but we waited until the following day since it was not an emergency. They gave us a call before showing up to alert us that they were coming so that we would have a staff member ready to show them around the place. They provided a diagnostic inspection for an extremely cheap price. After he diagnosed the issue, he came back to us and explained the problem thoroughly. He gave us a quote of the approximate price, which we accepted, and he took the diagnostic inspection price off of our total charge!

The Air Repair Pros

He was able to get our system back on line quickly, and without much hassle. It turned out that we had a broken belt, which he was able to replace easily. The system is getting old, as even though this is our “new” building, we just mean it is new to us. However, after having the floors replaced and our air conditioning back up and running, it feels plenty new to us! Our offices are finally starting to look like offices again. Everything is back in its place.

If you haven’t stopped by and visited the new building yet, please do so! We would be happy to show you around. Also, please remember that the deadline for submitting your graduation papers is approaching. Be sure to fill it out and get it in before the deadline to make sure that you walk on graduation day with the rest of your class. This is extremely important!

We sure are glad to have our air conditioning working. It was starting to get a little too warm in our offices. We want to thank the Air Repair Pros once again, and please show them your support as well if your home’s air conditioning needs any sort of repair. The Air Repair Pros proved what excellent customer service can really mean. Now I see why you recommended them Amanda! Consider this as a glowing review from us as well!

 

New Building

Well our new building is finally ready after all this time! The hardwood floors were installed by The Flooring Pro Guys, and they did a fantastic job, so here is a shout out to them. The installation was quick and went really smoothly. They were able to work around our schedule and get it done before we moved in. We really appreciate the hard work that this team put into our building. Please show them your appreciation and support; if you are interested in new flooring in your home, call and ask them for a quote and walk through. You won’t be disappointed. Our new floors are beautiful, and ready for everyone to enjoy!

We started moving all of our equipment in about a week ago, and we have our offices setup for the most part. We still have some issues that need to be addressed about the building, so please let us know if you can recommend anyone. Luckily, it hasn’t been too hot yet, so it is not an emergency. Our building is still quite comfortable, so please do come check us out.

Our current offices may change, so we do not have a directory listing just yet. If you have any trouble finding us, just give us a call and we can give you directions. If you are currently a member, we will send emails, as well as directory listings out as soon as we have them together. Please be patient with us as we make the switch over. If you have experience any delays in processing, rest assured that we are working out hardest to keep on top of things and keep everything up-to-date.

As we come closer to the end of the school year, remember to submit your qualifying education hours for approval. If you are graduating this year, please fill out 2016 Graduation Approval form before the end of April! This will ensure that you can walk with the rest of your class on graduation day. If you fail to submit your graduation approval form by the deadline, you will not walk with your class, and your diploma will be mailed to your home.
