The following tips can help you make sure your garage door and all of its moving parts continue operating optimally for as long as they can. Our team is always willing to share our hard-earned knowledge with any homeowner who's looking to learn more about their system.
Provide proper maintenance to your garage door panels
Wood doors require regular repainting in order to be preserved and do not rot or warp. Steel doors need to be applied with rust-resistant coating every now and then. Aluminum doors don't require any special maintenance, but you can also repaint them occasionally to maintain their appearance. In either case, you need to first carefully clean the panels with a dry cloth.
Test your opener safety sensors regularly
These photo-electric "eyes" are in charge of detecting an obstacle in the door's path and preventing it from hitting that object or person. You should make sure they are working correctly by placing something under the open door and then close it using the opener. If your door reverses, then the eyes are most likely fine. If it hits the object, then sensor realignment is required.
If your door won't close all the way, check its track
You have to identify the precise issue your door is suffering from. Look for any obstructions to the track such as pebbles, dirt accumulations, and any type of bends. Make sure the track is completely clean. If there are any dented sections, contact our experts to get them straightened out.
