Inspect your garage door tracks for misalignment
Check if the vertical and horizontal sections form one continuous track. If they are even slightly misaligned, the risk of track-bending and malfunction increases. The two sections should be carefully adjusted. The next step involves tightening the bolts of the brackets which hold these components in place.
Upgrade to an automatic system if you haven't already
There are many advantages associated with electronic door openers. It’s not just about the convenience of not having to disembark from your car to open and close the door, or asking someone to open and close it for you. It's also about improving security and raising the value of your home.
Choosing the right material for your door
You should pick the material of your garage door not only for its high aesthetic appeal but also for durability and resistance reasons. If you would prefer a particularly strong door due to security and weather factors, steel is a good option. On the other hand, if you don't mind a bit of maintenance, wood doors are an excellent choice. In any case, consider your household's needs and the weather conditions of your area before choosing.
How to inspect your overhead door
It's important to visually inspect your garage door tracks from time to time. If they are bent, this should be fixed or the rollers will struggle to slide properly. In addition, you should double check that the cables aren't wrapped around the drum. Lastly, check the up & down movement of the door - if you notice problems, we recommend getting in touch with a professional.
