Our team gathered some of the most frequently asked questions about garage doors and answered them in order to help you get the most out of your system.
Why is my garage door getting unbalanced?
This is most likely a problem with the springs. As time goes by, these components will wear out, and their tension will need to be adjusted to compensate for that. Contact our experts and we'll perform the spring adjustment for you. This task can be dangerous, so don't try to take care of it on your own.
Can I still use my garage door when the power goes out?
Yes, at least manually. Your opener should have an emergency release cord that you can pull to disengage it from the door. If you're unable to find this cord, check your owner's manual. There are also modern models that have a built in or an added backup battery system that can allow you to keep using them automatically even after the power goes out. Give us a call if you'd like to upgrade your garage door opener.
What special precautions should I take with a wooden garage door?
Wood requires more maintenance than other materials, but it also has some great advantages. For once, it is considered much more classically beautiful, and has a lot of curb appeal. It's also a natural insulator. On the other hand, it requires more maintenance. A wooden door will need to be cleaned and repainted regularly to be preserved. If you're willing to put in some extra effort, it can be a great choice.
