Operate your garage door safely with our useful tips
Count on our tips to help you learn more about how your garage door works, so you’ll know when a professional repair or maintenance service is necessary.
Maintain the door before winter
Whether winters are mild or harsh, it's always harder to take care of things. The best thing is to maintain the door during autumn. The best reason for that is the parts will behave better in cold days if they are already well lubricated and taken care of.
Emergency release feature
It is recommended that you consult the manual of your door’s opener system and learn how to use the emergency release feature of the unit. There are instances when the door is stuck and you may have to use the emergency release. Thus, it is important that you learn how to use it.
Keep a spare remote
One of the worst things that could happen to an automatic garage door is for its remote to get lost. While it could be a security issue to allow a remote to get lost, as our experts say, it would still be a good back-up plan to have a spare inside the house.
Don't use makeshift parts
Some think that a broken or missing small piece of metal could be replaced by another piece of metal of the same size and shape. However, this is not the case, especially for garage doors. Every part of the garage door, like the panels and joints, are specifically made for the whole thing to work properly.
