  • Maintenance

Routine maintenance on garage doors should be performed at least once a month. Inspect the garage door springs, cables, rollers, pulleys, and other door hardware for signs of wear. Make sure that the mechanics of the door are in good working condition and are properly lubricated.



  • Balance test


If you have an automated garage door opener system, close the door and disconnect the automatic opener. Try lifting the door manually, it should operate smoothly with little resistance and should remain fully open. If it is difficult to open or does not remain open, the door may be out of balance.



  • Prepare For Weather


Changes in climate and season will have a large impact on how your garage door functions. Intense heat and bright sun dries out the springs and makes them brittle, and weak springs are likely to crack with a shift in temperature. Make sure that before an intense winter or tough summer that things are fine for your garage door.

Also, prepare for summer heat and storms turns to summer outages. Ensure your opener is equipped with a battery backup system which continues to operate even during unforeseen outages.



Garage Door Safety

  • Safety First


Children should never be allowed to use/play with any part of garage doors or their openers and should always be supervised when operating garage doors. Additionally, parents should always teach their children about garage door safety.



While garage door safety is important all the year round, make this month of garage door safety an opportunity to ensure that everything is operating smoothly and safely.

Garage Door Repair

I called on a Sunday and hey sent a tech out on a Monday afternoon. He identified the problem right away and fixed that. He then checked out the rest of the components and made what ever adjustments were needed. His pricing was more than fair considering that he had to make the trip too.
