Carriage House Model 306

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Thu, Mar 31, 2016 @ 12:20 PM

Last week, we discussed the Model 305 in the Carriage House Collection. It provides a modern twist on the classic look homeowners desire. Another door that was introduced last June is the Model 306.

Model 306 is a more progressive look, with a modified design that features wide middle panels and narrow panels toward the sides for a more progressive look. The homeowner can further customize their door by choosing from the many paint and stain options, window styles and decorative hardware. The 7 foot doors provide a larger 3 section design which makes a great visual impact when selecting the window option for the top section; also allowing for light infiltration into the garage space.


Distinctive carriage house designs and superior insulated steel construction combine to create a harmonious balance of elegance and strength in our Carriage House Collection, and our two new models are no exception.

So, if you're looking for a new garage door, you should definitely consider Model 306 in the Carriage House Collection. Or, if you would like to shop which door will look best on your home, check out our Design Center. We are more than happy to discuss further options with you, as well. Just contact us!

Outdoor Spring Cleaning Guide

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Thu, Mar 17, 2016 @ 10:00 AM

Ahhh, spring is almost here! Isn't it exciting to see the trees blooming and the birds chirping? Being outside may make you realize it's time for a little outdoor spring cleaning. But where do you begin? No worries, we're here to help with our outdoor spring cleaning guide!

Outdoor Spring Cleaning: Step 1

Start by pruning away dead or damaged branches back to their live stems. For stems larger than 1/2 inch in diameter, use a hand saw. Use electric shears to shape hedges, rather than hand pruners that prevent growth by prohibiting sunlight and air into the center of the hedge.daisy-821222_960_720.jpg

Outdoor Spring Cleaning: Step 2

Next, rake out dead foliage and fallen leaves from flower beds. After the threat of frost has passed, you can remove existing mulch to create a new layer for spring planting. Additionally, you can lay down a pelletized fertilizer for spring rains to carry it down to the roots of existing plantings.

Outdoor Spring Cleaning: Step 3

Compost yard waste for future use by dumping collected organic yard waste (leaves, cuttings, spent foliage, last season's mulch) into a 3ft x 3ft x 3ft bin. Shred leaves and chip branches to accelerate decomposition. Keep the pile moist and aerate it with a pitchfork every couple of weeks.

Outdoor Spring Cleaning: Step 4

Clean up yard paths and patios by raking escaped gravel back into walkways and crevices. Refill these crevices by sweeping in new sand or stone dust, water to set, and repeat if necessary. If pavers are out of place, remove them and reset the base material before placing the pavers back in.

Outdoor Spring Cleaning: Step 5

Patch worn wood by scraping old paint and sanding wood all over to prep for a new finish coat. This new coat can go on once temperatures go above 50 degrees. Rotten wood sections can be patched with wood epoxy.

There you have it, 5 steps to kickoff your outdoor spring cleaning! Keeping your home in good shape and adding to the aesthetic appeal when you can will only benefit your investment in your home.

Happy spring from Overhead Door!

Introducing OHD Anywhere™

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Thu, Mar 10, 2016 @ 05:06 PM

We’re excited to introduce Overhead Door’s new smart device enabled garage door controller: OHD Anywhere™! Never worry again about giving your garage passcode to anyone. With the use of OHD Anywhere™, it’s as simple as opening the app on your smart device.
OHD Anywhere™ allows users to operate up to three garage doors from any location. The app is compatible with most Android and Apple mobile devices. The ability to monitor your garage from afar is not only convenient, but also safer than traditional monitoring methods. Door-mounted sensors monitor the position of the garage door rather than the operation of a garage door opener. Users will be alerted to any change in position of the garage door even if it’s been disengaged from the opener.

OHD Anywhere™ works through the use of your home Wi-Fi® connection, and can be programmed for use on up to three doors per module (additional sensors are required if you have more than one door). The door module incorporates the low-power SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi CC3200 wireless MCU from Texas Instruments (TI)* which allows for users to securely operate their garage doors. OHD Anywhere™ can be used with most garage door openers produced after 1993 (click here to see if your opener is compatible).

OHD Anywhere™ operates via a free app that can be downloaded from your device’s app store

Overhead Door Answers Your FAQs!

Posted by Overhead Door Permian Basin on Thu, Mar 03, 2016 @ 02:53 PM

Being in the field that we're in, and answering service calls as frequently as we do, we realize that a lot of the same questions come up. Today, we're answering those questions! Check it out!question-mark-1451232961b8W.jpg

I have to hold down the button in order for the garage door to close. What’s wrong?

There could be a couple things wrong with this situation. First, check to see if there is anything obstructing the sensor towards the bottom of the door. If nothing is there, look at both sides of the door and the tracks toward the floor. You should see two LED lights. Is one of them blinking or not lit at all? If so, the safety sensors need to be adjusted. There is a simple fix for this: turn or tilt the sensor that is off or blinking until the light is solid. Then try the door again. If neither of these solutions work, call us and we will fix the issue!

Can you help me with my broken garage door after hours or on the weekend?

Yes, we have an emergency line where you can reach us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We know that broken garage doors can be a huge inconvenience. When you call us today, we will come today. What’s more, we do not charge extra for calls on evenings, weekends, or holidays.

Why isn’t my remote working?

Most likely this means your batteries are going bad. If that does not solve the problem, try giving us a call. We’ll make sure to stop by at the earliest convenience.

How do I book a service?

Easy! Just give us a call or contact us through our website at: http://www.overheaddoorsanangelo.com/schedule-a-service-call

We heard a loud noise in the garage and cannot open the garage door now. What could be wrong?

If the garage door stopped working after the noise you heard, then the noise could have been the sound of a spring breaking. Call us for a quick appointment to inspect the garage door. If you have a broken spring, our qualified service technician can replace the spring your springs and ensure the garage door is safe and functional for future use. We always recommend replacing both springs if one has broken.

My garage door does not close all the way. Sometimes it reverses at the bottom, or right after it starts moving. What do I do?

The problem is most likely with the electric “safety eyes” that project an invisible “beam” or sensor across the door opening. The sensor detects obstacles in the way of the door and stops the garage door from closing on objects. If the “eyes” are out of alignment, the sensor will work sporadically. Our technicians can help fix this problem or determine if your garage door is not working for some other reason.
