Looking for Helpful Garage Door Tips? You Found Them!
Today, an automatic garage door is a necessity. However, most people find the selection, maintenance and troubleshooting more difficult than they’d like. Our goal is to provide assistance in more ways than one, which is why we created this page.
Use only appropriate paint products
A new looking garage door can be a real eye catcher. Some colors look better than others and some also tend to look fresher for longer. If you decide to apply a new coat of paint to your door, make sure to only use a product that's suitable to the material of your panels. Consult your owner's manual to be sure, or simply give our experts a call.
Don't stop halfway into your garage
Never stop your car in the middle of your open door. Not even for only a few lingering seconds. Either get all the way in, or all the way out. Plenty of things can go wrong, and if your door was to suddenly close down or collapse, it would damage your car, or worse, cause you severe injury.
Make sure your photo-eye sensors are aligned correctly
These sensors, otherwise known as your opener safety sensors, are part of your garage door reverse mechanism. They are installed on the bottom of the door's opening. They are in charge of detecting an obstacle that's blocking the door's path, so you must make sure don't become misaligned. Place an object under the door and order it to close. Your door should refuse to comply. If it starts closing normally, contact our experts right away.
Don't underestimate the value of rolling code technology
When you're looking to get a new garage door opener installed, our experts recommend investing in an access control systems that use rolling code technology. This means the codes your remote/clicker or wireless keypad use to communicate with the opener will change every time you operate your door. This is an incredibly useful security method and is well worth having.
