As a homeowner, you probably want to have as much knowledge as possible on each part of your house. These professional tips will help you learn more about your garage door system.
If something goes wrong with your garage door, don't try to repair it yourself. This complex mechanism requires experience and professional training to be fixed safely, and mishandling things like the springs or the cables can lead to not only more damage, but to dangerous injuries as well. Don't take those unnecessary risks. Let our team help you.
While your garage door is in motion, take the time to listen to the sounds it makes and watch to make sure it doesn't shake or rattle abnormally. If you hear any strange and unusual noises, you better have them checked as soon as possible. These can often be signs of a looming malfunction, and dealing with them early on will help you avoid a lot of hassle and expenses later.
Seeing as your garage is part of your home, by leaving it open you're essentially allowing potential burglars to get a free glimpse, which will let them know just how vulnerable your home may be. Of course, if you forget your door open and leave, you're basically handing thieves your home on a silver platter. Get an automatic opener with a timer-to-close function, which will simply force the door to close after a set amount of seconds.
Start with an inspection and watch out for bending, rust, and obstructions. A bent track should be fixed right away. Get rid of rust with a safe product and remove any larger, obvious obstructions by hand. If the horizontal and vertical sections are misaligned, loosen the bolts to align them and replace any missing bolts in a timely fashion.
Garage door openers come with a number of drive system options. Modern belt drives are the quietest of all available so if you after a door that is as quiet as possible, this is the type to go for.
