Tips For Every Garage Door Owner
It isn’t easy to choose, maintain and troubleshoot garage doors and openers. By sharing valuable tips on this page, our goal is to help everyone enjoy safe and smooth garage operation at all times.
Keep your motor dust free
Garages tend to accumulate a lot of dust. This can cause problems to your garage door opener, especially if it manages to get to its circuit board. Keep your opener clean with a regular wipe down with a dry cloth. While you're at it, you may want to clean the door's track as well.
More features can mean more confusion
The technology available for new garage doors has come a long way over the years. Newer doors can come with a variety of fantastic features but you may not remember all of them. Check your garage door’s user manual and get familiar with your new door. Fully understanding all the features will help you get the most out of your investment.
Replace loose or worn-out cables
If your garage door cables are loose, they will likely come off the drum. Even if they are able to stay in the right position, the door won't move properly. When cables wear-out they won't function properly, so it's best to replace them immediately at the first sign of trouble.
