There are some things you can do in order to keep your garage door system in a great working condition for a long time. These tips detail what some of those actions are. Feel free to reach out to us for more information.
Check the balance of your garage door
A spirit level can be a saving grace when inspecting your garage door. Use the level to check that your door is balanced and that the framework, tracks and other parts are in line. This will help you to identify if any realignment is necessary, which will help you avoid costly repairs later on.
Release a frozen garage door by applying heat
If your garage door has frozen over, you should avoid using sharp tools to break the ice. You may cause inadvertent damage this way. Instead, we recommend attempting to melt the ice with a heat gun or boiling water.
Check the electrics if your opener is malfunctioning
Your first task is to check the connection with the power source. Make sure that the cable connecting the opener is plugged-in appropriately and that the switch works properly. You should also check the wiring for damage - if everything seems fine, it's probably time to call in a professional.
