We love sharing our garage door knowledge with our customers, so we thought, what better way to do that than to create a dedicated page full of advice? Take a look at our tips to gain some useful information.
Make sure your garage door is properly balanced
A garage door that is not properly balanced puts a lot of additional strain on the opener and the springs. In general, this will shorten the working life of these components, so getting the issue resolved quickly is important. Lift the door halfway and see if it rises or lowers instead of staying in place. If it looks like your garage door is not properly balanced, call our experts and let us safely adjust the springs.
Give your garage door a coat of wax
A good coat of wax will do wonders for your car, but did you know you could also tweak oil on your garage door? Applying a coat of wax to your garage door after cleaning it will act as a protective barrier that will prevent dirt and grime from fading the paintwork and eventually corroding the steel.
Don't neglect the smaller parts
Most garage door owners usually focus on the major parts of their system, like the springs, the panels and the opener and often forget that small parts can be equally as important. According to our technicians, the brackets, hinges, and bearings and various other similar small components must be regularly inspected as well, to prevent them from developing issues. As the saying goes, for want of a nail the entire kingdom was lost.
