There’s not much room between the door opening and the ceiling? Can I still install a garage door?

With the right system and team of professionals, it’s possible to install a garage door in almost all circumstances. We can install these varieties of garage doors:

  • A low headroom track system, which slopes down instead of running parallel to the ceiling
  • A low headroom torsion rear track system
Can I operate my garage door during a power outage?

It’s highly recommended you do not manually open your garage door if there is no power to your property. Attempting to do so may lead to injury. Always phone the experts at Coastal Auto Doors & Gates for an emergency repair service.

How can I maintain my garage door?

Caring for your garage door ensures it remains smooth, quiet and squeak-free. Lubrication and cleaning with a damp cloth of hinges, locks, springs and chains allows the parts to glide more smoothly on the tracks. A yearly maintenance check from Coastal Auto Doors & Gates is also recommended.

Are you able to automate an existing gate or garage door?

Of course! Your gate or garage must be in good condition before we can attempt to automate them.

Can I use one remote to operate my gate and garage?

If you hate juggling multiple remote controls on your keys or in your bag, then a stand-alone receiver is just what you’re after. These systems are customised to handle various inputs and are easily installed.
