Ever fiddled with your garage door and made things worse? With our helpful tips section, this will hopefully never happen. Our skilled technicians provide all the information you need to avoid malfunctions right here. Read on to learn more.
Install motion sensor lights above your garage door for extra security
Garage doors are often considered a soft target for would-be thieves and burglars. These crooks tend to rely on darkness to avoid detection. By installing motion sensor lights above your garage door, you can take away their cover of darkness which will act as a strong deterrent.
Avoid the DIY method when it comes to repairing your garage door
Garage door repairs can be incredibly dangerous if you don't know exactly what you're doing. Some parts, like the springs and the panels, can hold tremendous tension, or be incredibly heavy, and may cause a serious injury if an amateur tries to repair or replace them. Don't take unnecessary risks. If you're having some problems with your door, simply let our experts know and we'll take care of everything.
Sometimes the solution to a problem is the simplest one
A garage door that won't open can be incredibly frustrating, especially when you are in a hurry. Before you go into full panic mode and get your opener or wall switch checked, make sure your remote's batteries haven't simply died. If new batteries don't work, then start checking for the problem elsewhere.
Match the horsepower of your opener to your garage door
A standard two-car door garage usually requires an opener which produces just 0.5 horsepower. Heavier wood doors and especially carriage doors may need a slightly stronger opener of around 0.75. If you choose an opener with less HP than you need, it may struggle to lift the door. If you buy a much more powerful device than you need, you may end up paying a higher energy bill for nothing so be sure to check with a technician before making the final decision.
