We’ve compiled a list of tips, courtesy of our technicians to help you keep your garage door running safely so that you minimize the chances of serious failure. You can read some advice from our professionals below.
Seal your garage door
Weather seals are designed to fill the little gaps between the door and jamb. They help to maintain the right indoor temperature and keep excess moisture from seeping in. If your weatherstripping is showing gaps, it's good to get this seen to especially before the colder months.
Make sure you get the right rollers for your system
There are a number of different garage door rollers available in terms of material. Rollers are designed to be strong and durable. Nylon rollers in particular offer silence and don't erode, so can be a good option if you're in need of replacements.
Keeping your garage door safe
A poorly maintained garage door can pose a huge risk to the safety of your family and property. Be sure to keep a close eye on the condition of your springs, brackets and safety cables to ensure they don't fail unexpectedly. Since these components are essential for the safe use of your door, they shouldn't be neglected.
Faulty safety sensors should be replaced immediately
If your sensors have stopped doing their job, your system will have just become a lot more dangerous. Your door should always reverse if there is something in the way of the door once it's been triggered to close - if it doesn't, you risk the development of a hazard sometime in the near future.
