Do you need some fresh tips to clear your mind and decide about your new garage door?
Check the balance of the door
You can see if the garage door is balanced if you open it midway after having disengaged the opener and check if it stands still. If it slides down or is jumping up, you'll need to have the springs adjusted properly. You can also tell there's a need for adjustment if there's a gap under one side of the door.
Fix track issues immediately
Many things can go wrong with the tracks. They might get misaligned if their fasteners are loose, bent if they're hit or rusty. In any case, they must be fixed or replaced depending on the problem. For such services, you'll need the assistance of our technicians. If the tracks aren't in good condition, it is possible for the door to get stuck while moving, or even get off the track.
Prefer sectional doors
If you must decide among one-piece garage doors and sectional ones, prefer the latter. Unless you have a special reason for wanting one-piece doors, it's good to know that they're not functional. They also move at a slower pace according to our technicians. They're usually pre-set from the factory and such settings cannot be changed for safety purposes. Sectional door panels can be replaced individually.
Ensure that the extension springs have safety cables
These are stationary cables that run through the springs. They should be installed along with the main components. These cables are intended to hold the parts of the spring in case of breaking. Otherwise, they will shoot out and may hurt someone or cause damage to the garage. If you do not have such cables or they are in poor condition, get new ones installed right away.
Keep the door and components clean
Make use of good weather during spring and summer to thoroughly wash the door panel and the garage door parts. You will also have the chance to check their condition and remove elements, especially from the garage door tracks that can obstruct the door's good movement.
Check the sensors every week
It's not an exaggeration to say that sensors must be checked every week since they can be damaged easily by various elements and even by your car. Testing the opener sensors is very easy and won't take much of your time according to our professionals in Chandler but they can save your life.
