Learn about the maintenance wooden garage doors require
Unlike their aluminum counterparts, wooden garage doors require a lot of maintenance in order to retain their appeal. The sun, moisture, and rain all do their part in making sure the wood will become faded, chipped, and at times even rot. It's recommended to check with the manual what type of protective varnish you should use in order to protect your door from the elements, and to consider it before choosing to get a new garage door.
Check the opener remote batteries
If your remote or opener malfunctions, checking the batteries is the first step you should take. Yes, it might sound trivial - but many people forget that these modern-looking devices still have batteries that need to be replaced. Try to replace them. If the remote still doesn't work, the problem might be with it or the opener. In that case - give our experts a call for quick and friendly troubleshooting!
Replace both extension springs
Having both extension garage door springs replaced at the same time - even if only one is broken – is a must. If you only replace one, the other will follow soon and you will pay twice for labor work and so you will face the same problems twice.
Electric garage door maintenance
Clean the door regularly with soap and sponge to remove unwanted and corrosive chemicals. Conduct a balance test from time to time to ensure that the safety features are still functioning. Our technicians suggest that lubrication must be done at least twice a year. Tighten loosened knots when you hear an irritating noise.
