Steve and Tammy Lewis own Superior Overhead Door in Broken Arrow and provide products and services throughout the greater Tulsa area.
Superior Overhead Door was founded in 2008 by Steve Lewis. Steve has logged 35 years in the overhead door industry and he and Tammy, Steve’s wife and company office manager, are committed to providing high-quality custom garage doors and outstanding customer service. “We have doors perfectly suited to complement any home or style,” says Steve. “Our prebuilt garage doors can be configured in numerous ways with lots of options, panel designs and hardware that will blend perfectly with your home’s style.”
When you walk into the Superior Overhead Door shop, you’ll find it meticulously clean and orderly. “Our customers seem to appreciate how our tidy shop attitude translates into taking the utmost care and pride on every project we do,” says Tammy. The company provides sales, installations and service in the greater Tulsa area. They offer overhead doors, repairs, spring replacements, tune ups and related services for any home. “We can design just about any garage door a customer can imagine,” said Steve.
“Most of us never think about servicing our garage door openers, doors, springs and related system parts,” says Steve. “Springs, rollers and hinges need lubrication at recommended intervals of six months. When properly maintained, you’ll find that your system runs quieter and smoother.” Steve recommends a lubricant developed for garage doors that can improve performance and extend life on chain and belt systems. Stop by Superior Overhead Door and pick up a can of the spray lubricant or call and schedule a time for them to inspect and service your garage door system.
Insulated garage doors are still popular and effective in keeping out winter’s cold. The pan door product is styrofoam insulation with vinyl backing that helps deaden noise and adds strength to the door as it insulates. Some door styles can be upgraded with an insulation kit that is attractive to do-it-yourselfers, or if you elect to have Superior do the installation for you, they will also check spring balance, lubricate the system and make adjustments as needed.
“If you ever need a spring replaced, you might consider an extended-life variety that extends spring life from the usual 10,000 cycles (open and close) to 25,000 cycles,” says Steve. “The difference in price is not significant and is worth considering for all the value-added benefits.” Steve cautions that all garage door springs can and will fatigue with use.
