From us to you
Learn everything you need to know when it comes to garage doors and their components by reading the following practical tips our experts have put together.
Check the balance of your door
Garage doors come with their very own counterweight systems to take the pressure of the opener. Keeping everything balanced is essential to make sure your door continues running smoothly for as long as possible. To check the balance of your door, pull the emergency release cord and raise the door manually about half way high. If it can't stay in that position the springs may need a little bit of an adjustment, or even replacement, depending on their condition. Both are jobs best left to the experts.
Clean the garage door clicker frequently
Remove any dirt stuck around the buttons of your clicker with a toothpick or a sewing needle. Clean the plastic parts, the cover of the infrared unit and the battery contacts with a soft dry cloth or a cotton swab damped in a bit of alcohol. Wait for the contacts to dry before replacing the batteries.
Replace garage door parts if they look worn
Worn out, damaged, broken or heavily rusted garage door parts should be replaced as quickly as possible. Damage to one part can sometimes place extra strain on additional components, meaning you may be left with a larger problem than the one you started with.
