A Few Helpful Guidelines and Tips
The following pieces of advice can help you take better care of your garage door system and ensure the highest safety standards.
Test your door’s reversing system often
One of the most valuable additions to the modern garage door has been the introduction of auto-reversing. When an object is in its path, the closing door senses the obstruction and reverses its operation. This is a valuable safety feature and should be checked every month or so to make sure it’s functioning properly. If it’s not, contact our specialists to repair or replace the sensor and help you avoid the possibility of serious injury.
Wooden doors require special attention
A wooden garage door can raise the aesthetic value of your home, but it will require more maintenance than one made of metal. You should repaint the inside and outside panels every two or three years to prevent warping or rotting. You should also make sure to inspect the door often to catch any water or insect damage before it worsens.
Test the sensors often
If you don't test your garage door opener sensors regularly, you may fail to detect a malfunction, which can result in damage to yourself, your family or your property. Problems are not always immediately made obvious to us, and seeing as a sensor's entire purpose is to keep the door from closing while there's an object or person in its path, scheduled testing can be crucial in preventing accidents.
