Our team can help you with all sorts of garage door related issues, from broken springs to things that require opener repairs. We have some tips that can help you avoid a lot of potential accidents. Check them out below.
Weatherproof your garage door
Having a good amount of insulation on the bottom of your garage door can prevent water from working its way into your garage. If your weatherstripping is worn out, you should be able to replace it easily - most hardware stores will stock it.
Check that your door is well balanced
The balance of your door has a significant effect on how well it operates - a lousily balanced door can overburden the opener and cause it to break down more easily. It can also weaken and shorten the lifespan of the springs. Balance issues can be taken care of through adjustments carried out by professionals.
Learn how to change and set the force limit
The force limit is set by the opener unit and determines how far the door will go in its closing and opening position. If you notice that the door won't open or close all the way, this may indicate that the settings need to be changed.
Don't leave remote controls in the hands of kids
Don't leave children to play or use remote controls when you are not there. Your garage door can be a dangerous and unpredictable system - you don't want to risk injury or damage by leaving your remote control lying around!
