Keep your garage door in excellent condition with our tips
Getting a professional technician to thoroughly check your garage door at least once a year is always recommended. But in between your annual maintenance checks, you can try these handy tips to keep your door functioning correctly every day!
Replace springs before they snap
It's not only smart, it's the prudent thing to do. The lifespan of your garage door springs can stretch or shorten depending on different factors, therefore, replacing them in time can be a little challenging. According to our experts, regular maintenance and inspection can be a good way to avoid most accidents, as long as you act quickly when you suspect a spring's condition has gotten too worse.
Maybe you can fix a jamming problem, and maybe not
Both manual and electric garage doors can become jammed. When this happens, check the door to make sure built-up debris like dirt or rocks haven't accumulated on the tracks or opening mechanism. Also, be sure to check the sensors to see if anything is obstructing the beam. If you can’t find the problem after a careful examination, contact our experts to have them take a look so your door maintains its warrantee. They'll solve the issue and guarantee your satisfaction.
Get a back-up power supply for your door opener
Electric garage door openers require electricity to work. That’s why it is advisable to have backup power supply installed to avoid possible inconveniences during power outages. Not everyone knows how to disengage the torsion spring or to switch the door over to manual control, which is why a backup power supply can be a real time and effort saver.
