I cannot open my door even when I try manually. What is wrong?
When you can't open the door in any way, there must be something wrong with the garage door springs. They should immediately be replaced, as without them you will not be able to operate your door. Using tension, they counterbalance the door's weight. This way even when a single spring breaks you won't be able to operate your door.
What is PVC overlay?
This is a design component which some steel garage doors have. It goes over the sheet metal layers, plays a decorative role and it can be of any color plus mimic natural wood. While PVC does not have insulation properties, it has good resistance to UV damage, and helps to protect the inner layers of the door.
