Frequently Asked Questions
How does a garage door silencer work?

Yes, the garage door silencer kit is easy to install. Acoustical Surfaces’ customers have reported being very satisfied with the simplicity of the installation process.
Will the garage door silencer affect the operation of my garage door?
No, the garage door silencer is designed to reduce noise and vibration without affecting the operation of your garage door. It is installed above the garage door opener and does not interfere with its function.
Can I use the garage door soundproofing kit on any garage door?
The garage door silencer is typically designed to work with most garage door openers. However, for specific compatibility queries, please see the Product Specifications & Installation Instructions.
What is the lifespan of a garage door vibration isolator kit?
The lifespan of a garage door silencer varies depending on the specific product and the frequency of use of the garage door. To ensure longevity, it’s recommended to follow the manufacturer’s maintenance instructions.
Will the garage door silencer quiet squeaky door hinges and rollers?
No, garage door hinges and rollers often squeak due to friction caused by metal parts rubbing against each other. While WD-40 is a popular choice, there are other lubricants available as well. Silicone spray lubricants, lithium grease, white grease, motor oil, and cooking oil can also be used to lubricate door hinges. Some people even dip the hinge pins in melted paraffin wax to stop the squeaking.

Compare The Difference
I just bought and installed two of your garage door vibration isolation kits and am very pleased with the results. They were easy to install, and provided great results. After installing the first two, I took a few minutes to record the difference between the two openers. The first is the sound without, and the second is with the kit. Both are recorded from the same location in our bedroom above the garage.

Thanks For The Silence
We just moved into our new house and everything was great, but every time I left for work the noise and vibrations from our garage door opener would wake up our newborn. My wife was making me park my car outside because she didn’t want him disturbed. A friend of mine recommended that I buy the Garage Door Silencer kit to reduce the noise. After I installed them, which was much easier than I thought it would be, we were amazed by how much they reduced the noise. It’s hard to believe that those two small clips absorb so much noise. My wife is much happier now that our baby isn’t disturbed by the garage door opener and I can now park in the garage again.
Thanks for the silence. – Dr. Rich C. (Tualatin, OR)
