We care about your home too! That’s why we assembled this list of tips that will help you keep your garage door running in great shape for years to come.
Eliminate garage door noises by getting a belt drive garage door opener. The garage door will be more silent if you get nylon rollers, replace rusty parts as soon as possible, lubricate the moving garage door parts regularly, make sure all parts are fastened and their fasteners tightened.
Disconnect your opener from its power source when going away
If you disengage your opener, it will be impossible for intruders to get your door to open using a garage door remote. They'll have to unlock it and lift it manually - a much harder task that is also likely to attract attention. For this reason, it's always a good idea to disconnect your opener when going away for significant periods.
Inspect your garage door cables carefully
Your garage door cables are under a lot of tension, meaning their sudden snapping has the potential to cause a serious accident. For this reason, you should inspect them for damage, fraying and wear and tear. Cables that are not in good condition must be repaired or replaced immediately.
