Part of the reputation we strive for as a door company in Edmonton is excellence, and our work at the Mercedes Benz Edmonton dealership is something we’re proud to put our name on. At this project, we installed three different kinds of overhead doors in three locations on the property, each achieving a different goal.
Edmonton is vibrant and thriving (especially in the summer!) and there are many local businesses with garage doors that add unique functionality and boost curb appeal up a pretty serious notch. Overhead doors aren’t just for commercial bays anymore (though we can still help with that). Check out our 5 favourite creative overhead door applications.
Choosing the right overhead door company is just as important as choosing the right overhead door. And if you know how much we love doors, you know this isn’t something we take lightly! Of course you will want to research the door you’re going to buy, but investing some of your time into researching who will install and maintain it will also go a long way. You wouldn’t trust a shifty tailor with your new favourite suit - and garage doors are no different.
Sometimes, the right door can mean the difference between life and death.
We don't mean to get dark, but when the University of Alberta chose new overhead doors this was a very real consideration. A door failure is always frustrating, but for ambulance drivers responding to patients in critical condition, the situation can become dire when an overhead door emergency gets in the way of a 911 emergency. Abe won't always be riding along to save the day. In this case, only the most durable and reliable overhead doors will do.
Many buildings, from airports to office buildings, have fire doors and emergency response closures, and having the right equipment makes a huge difference in an emergency situation. When it comes to commercial fire door installation, you'll want to make the best choice for your organization. According to a study by the Institute for Research in Construction, Canadian fires have an estimated annual cost of over 11 billion dollars. With high financial and safety implications, the right fire doors can save your business in more ways than one: preventing spreading smoke and flames, containing the fire, and enabling escape routes.
The moment you spot a pest in your garage, it’s too late. Sure, a pest or two may not seem like a big deal, but home invasion could be next so it’s crucial to stop and use measures to prevent larger, or any pest problems in your garage. Can you feel that pang of anxiety after hearing tiny feet scurry away, or watching a dark shadow zip out of sight?
Many people are quick to prepare their overhead doors for winters in Edmonton, but did you know it’s important to prepare for summer too?

Here are some tips from Abe to get your garage ready for an Edmonton summer:
