We have some great pieces of advice for you. These tips will teach you the secrets of how to keep your garage door and its components in great condition.
Make sure all the nuts and bolts are tight
It is not unusual for various parts of your garage door to become loose eventually. It happens to every mechanical system comprised of many different moving parts. Check every bolt and screw frequently and tighten them if they seem loose. If you're not sure of exactly what needs to be done, call us and our experts will do it for you.
Test the safety sensors regularly
It is best to use a two-by-four for this purpose, but you can also use any object that's big enough to obstruct the safety sensors' beam. Place the piece of wood in the open door's path and try closing your door using your opener. If the door starts to close but then reverses, or if it refuses to even start closing, then the sensors are most likely functioning correctly.
Consider the additional features a new garage door opener has to offer
Don't underestimate the usefulness of the extra features some garage door openers have to offer. A backup battery system and Bluetooth compatibility, for example, might seem like a luxury at first, but you'd be surprised how many benefits they can offer your daily routine. Especially the backup battery. You never know when you might need to rely on such a useful feature.
