It can be a storefront door, or a residential door, if there is a door shutter installed, you are going to find this post helpful. In most cases, the door shutter is something that we are using every day, and with many doors in New York multiple times every day. But at the same time, a door shutter is something which we almost never pay attention to its existence. There are plenty of store front doors that include door shutters, quite a few are visible, and if you will look at the top of the door, you will see the door-closer connected to the door on one side and (In most cases) connected to the door’s frame on the other. But not all door shutters are visible. Some door shutters in NY are installed in a way that you can’t see the door shutter.
While servicing overhead doors and steel gates, Matalonco Garage Doors provided, set up and serviced many door shutters over the years from a variety of models and from various types. It can be an industrial, heavy-duty door shutter for the primary door of the store, or a door shutter for a kitchen door. Just like many other things in our life, the quality can make a big difference between a door shutter than can be used one hundred times every day, but since it was made from high quality parts, and was purchased from reputable maker, it can work for many years. While at the same time, it can be a door shutter which is only being operated two - three times a day, but since it is from the cheap type of door shutters, may break after few months. You may need a door shutter installment in New York, or a storefront door shutter in Brooklyn, aim for quality, and the door shutter will work with no need for repairs for many years.
Broken Door shutter Troubleshoot
Like we just explained, when most people use a store-front door in New York, which is equipped with a door shutter, they do not notice the fact that there is a door shutter installed, and that the door shutter itself is what makes the door swing back and close every time we use the door.
Since it is unnoticed most of the time, the door shutter is usually being noticed when there is an issue with the door shutter itself, and it cease to close to close the door after it has been opened.

How the door shutter operate
The door shutters – when properly installed - are working in a very simple way: Every time someone is opening the door, the door shutter bring the door back to a closed position. There are many possible reasons that store or home owners in New York install door shutters, it can be a Bar, a mall, a shop, a hospital, an office, hotel or even the local grocery store, door shutter is the simplest way to make sure that the door will be closed and remain this way until someone open it again.
And if the door shutter was installed by a skilled installer, the door will close in the smoothest and the perfect way, and return to a closed position with no need to do anything, since the door shutter do all the job. If the door shutter was set up and adjusted properly, the door shutter will swing the door until it will return to its place on the door’s frame, and even lock the door in some cases.
As long as the door shutter is from top quality, and was made from strong components, together with a skilled installment, the door shutter should close door a great number of times with no need for replacement. During servicing storefront doors in New York, we have seen door shutters that worked for many years before they needed to be replaced. At the same time, we saw door shutters that were installed few months before they broke. There are 3 main reasons why a door shutter break within months:
- The door shutter is low quality.
- The installer wasn’t qualified.
- The door shutter wasn’t the right door shutter (A residential door shutter installed on a commercial door).
To that we have one thing to say: We will refuse to install the wrong door shutter. If the store owner will try to save money by installing the cheapest door shutter on a door that require high cycle door shutter, we will not perform the installment. We will not put the name of Matalonco on a door which is not 100% perfect. It can be a storefront door repair, or a rolling gate repair, we have a reputation as the best doors and gates company in New York, and we intend to maintain it.
Buy high quality door shutter!
Similar to numerous things in everyday life, and it can be a roll up door repair New York, or commercial garage door repair, there are different cost ranges and levels of qualities when it comes to door shutters in NY:
When you but the low quality type of door shutter option: You contacted a local company who install door shutters in New York, purchased a low quality door shutter, and the installer installed it on your door: few months later, you find that the door shutter is not working as it worked the day it was installed, and that it is slowly weaken until it completely stop working. Now you need to contact a local door repairman again.
When you but the top quality door shutter: You bought high quality door shutter, and used a licensed installer for the job, like the installers of New York Garage Doors and Gates are. After 5 years, you still don’t remember that you installed a new door shutter 5 years ago, since it is working the same way it did the way it was installed. It may be a door shutter installer in New York, or rolling gate repairman in Staten Island, invest in quality, and forget about troubleshoot for many years.
When shopping for a new door shutter: Commercial, Industrial or residential, a lot deepened on the amount of usage of the door where the door shutter will be set up. There is no need to invest in the heavy duty door shutters for a rest room that almost never being used (Despite the fact that there is never a door shutter which is too good). But at the same time, if it installed at the door of an entrance to a busy store in New York, that people use the door every few seconds, it will be a mistake to install on of the cheap door shutters. You may save some money on the first installment, but when you will find that you needed to install few door shutters instead of one, you will understand why it is better to invest in quality.
How to choose the right door shutter?
Quite a few shop owners, or anyone who use door shutter to close the door, try to spend less by installing the cheap type door shutters, believing they just saved a lot money by choosing to install the least expensive type of door shutter. Sometime we estimate a new door shutter installment in New York, and the store owner tell us that he has an offer which is 30-50% lower. We tell him that it can never be the same door shutter, since the estimate he got is equal to the price of the door shutter we want to install.

Door shutter Installment NY
Purchasing high quality door shutter doesn’t mean that you are going to have a high quality door shutter. Locating a local installer, which is qualified and skilled is the second part, and only the combination of the two will ensure you will be getting a high quality door shutter.
As we have said, door shutters can come in different sizes and shapes, and there are few manufactures who offer strong and reliable door shutters. To some, it may seem that installing a door shutter is simply to drill it to its location, and have the door shutter work flawlessly. But the truth is that every installment is unique, and require knowledge about doors, hinges, the structure of the door, and the door shutter. If there is an issue with the door itself, such as a damaged hinge or a broken frame, the door shutter may not be able to do the thing it was installed for – to close the door. Not once when we arrive to repair a broken door or a fix broken gate in Brooklyn, we find that there is a problem completely different than predicted. Like when the hinge of the door is damaged, and the door shutter couldn’t close the door smoothly anymore. To the client it may look like there is a problem with the door shutter, when there is actually a problem with the door itself as well.
There is only one correct way to install a door shutter, and that is the proper way. Throughout many years of servicing doors and gates in New York, we got phone calls from clients who used different suppliers to repair their gate or their door, and ended with a door that still not function effectively. This is a result of techs who weren’t skilled, or weren’t trained to repair commercial heavy duty doors and gates.
