We always have your best interests in mind, including sharing important garage door tips with you.
There are many aspects of home ownership that most people don’t spend a great deal of time thinking about. You just assume each one is going to work properly when you need it. The water will always come out of the faucets, the lights will always turn on, the water heater will always deliver a hot shower, and your garage door will always open and close when you need it to. The reality is that for these things to be reliable, you do have to consider maintenance from time to time, as well as be diligent when something isn’t working quite as it should.
At 31-W Insulation, we are concerned with the last item mentioned: your garage door. This is because we know how frustrating it can be to have a problem with it. To help you keep this important access point operational for your Charleston, South Carolina home, we offer these garage door tips:
- Understand the Vulnerability– Since this is the largest access point to your home, be cognizant of it as a potential security concern. Be sure to change the code, or even better have us install one that uses rolling-code technology. Also, remember that it can’t help you if you don’t keep it closed. We also recommend securing the garage door by unplugging the opener when you are traveling for business or vacation.
- Understand the Signs of a Problem– If your garage door isn’t cycling fully, makes unusual noises, doesn’t seem to close evenly, or otherwise has changed, one of the most important garage door tips is to call us to have it checked out. Garage doors get a lot of use, and there are many parts that eventually wear out and need to be replaced.
- Understand Maintenance– Regular maintenance is important for any component in your home. As for garage doors, one thing you should check out regularly is that the safety reverse mechanism is operating as it should.
