Proactive Garage Door Tips

This page contains tips that are meant to help you with your garage door. There is a lot to know, starting from what system to buy and all the way to how to carefully maintain it. Give us a call if you have any questions.

Your garage door opener should be properly maintained

Regardless of what brand of door opener you have, it’s important to have a regular maintenance routine that will help you make sure that your unit continues working without problems. These checks should also include testing of the safety sensors and the auto-reverse mechanism, which will help you ensure that the unit can reverse the door's movement when something is blocking its path.

Preserve the luster of your metal door

Our experts do not recommend repainting your metal door if you want to preserve its lustrous appearance. The best way to do that is to apply the panels with a special protective layer. This coating serves as protection from wind, corrosion, and acidic rain. It also functions as dirt repellant, which makes it relatively easier to clean.

Read the manual

Although it's very important to do it, not everyone reads their door's user manual. Our experts strongly advice homeowners take the time to read the manual for their garage door, in order to learn which parts pose more risk than others and what can be done to mitigate certain issues. It's important that you at least know where the door's emergency release cord is and how to use it.

Regular maintenance is a must

Garage doors can experience all sorts of problems, but a lot of issues can be avoided if you see to it that the system is properly maintained. Get the springs adjusted every so often, lubricate the moving metal parts, and test the opener's safety features regularly to ensure that the mechanism is working correctly. If you need some help, our team will be happy to assist you.

Learn how to avoid finger injuries

If you have a sectional door, getting your fingers pinched can, unfortunately, be quite easy. Make sure to never touch your door while it's in motion, and if you have to open or close it manually, only do so by grabbing the right parts, i.e. the handles. If your door doesn't have any, consider getting some attached. You can also think about getting a pinch-proof garage door if you're worried about your children getting hurt by the door accidentally.
