For major repairs to your garage door, our technicians are the experts to contact. But for a minor issue, scroll down below to our helpful tips page for many general and preventative maintenance tips to keep your door operating perfectly!
Check your opener’s safety features
To ensure that your garage door stays safe to use, you should regularly check to make sure that the opener's safety sensors are aligned correctly and that its auto reversal system is fully functional. You can test the sensors by making sure the door doesn't close while there's an object in its path, and you can check the auto reversal function by letting it close on an obstacle and making sure it reverses as soon as it touches it.
Consider upgrading your old opener
Did you know that with a Wi-Fi or Bluetooth compatible opener you will be able to open and close your door using your smartphone? This is an excellent option for those who are tired of dealing with the hassle of dead batteries or lost remotes. In fact, an opener that can be used via the internet will allow you to operate your door from virtually anywhere in the world.
A cracked spring could be a problem
Springs are an important part of any garage door system. If you can see any cracks or damage to their coils, then it is best to act immediately. These components can be incredibly dangerous when they break, so you should seek out a professional spring replacement service. Our experts are here to help.
Learn how to switch your door to manual mode
During a power outage, your opener will be unable to open your door unless you have a backup battery installed. Generally, our recommendation would be to simply wait until the power returns, but in case of emergency, you can use the emergency release cord to disengage the opener. This will allow you to use your door manually. Be advised - your door must be completely closed before you do this.
