When the Innovations doors came out I was not a complete fan because of the pinch proof design of the sections. Because of this design the doors had to use specially made hinges and bottom cable brackets. This added unnecessary costs to the doors. Plus the fact that most homeowners didn't care about the pinch proof design because they have garage door operators on their doors. They almost never operated their doors manually so the chance of getting one's fingers closed in the garage door were almost nil.
I'm excited to see the new doors offered by Raynor. I think this is a good move but think it's one they should've made years ago. I have had a Centura garage door on my home for the past 14 years and love it. Before putting the door on the garage the bedroom above the garage was always cold in the winter. Since installing a good insulated door on the garage the bedroom stays nice and warm in the winter (as does the garage).
What if you need parts for the Affina, Centura or Relante? If you need rollers, cables, pulleys or bottom seals you'll still be able to get them for years to come as those are common garage door parts (and can be found here at the Garage Door Zone store). You'll also still be able to get the extension and torsion springs from your local Raynor dealer since those are also common garage door parts. What about the hinges and replacement sections? I'm sure Raynor still has plenty of hinges & bottom cable brackets in stock and probably will for a few years. I doubt that they will manufacture any more once they run out of stock though. As far as replacement sections? Unfortunately we're out of luck. They are retooling the machine that makes the Innovations garage doors so they can make the new Aspen line of garage doors so they won't be able to make replacement sections. So drive carefully & try not to hit your door because you can't get replacement sections.
What do you do if you need to replace an Innovations door or have a warranty issue with an Innovations door? Contact your local Raynor dealer (which you can lookup here). Raynor Mfg. has always been very good with customer support and will probably work with homeowners on a case by case issue.
