Garage Door Tips in Cumming, Georgia

  • Keep Fully Closed or Fully Open- Leaving your garage door partially open/closed puts more strain on the components, leaves your garage contents and your home vulnerable, and leaves you wondering which direction it will head when you hit the activation button next time.
  • Test the Safety Reverse Mechanism- It is important to keep up with garage door maintenance, and one thing you can do yourself is check to be sure the safety reverse mechanism is keeping the door from coming down if something is in its path. Set something you don’t care about being crushed in the path of the garage door and then attempt to close it. It should stop before reaching it and go back to the fully open position. If it doesn’t, call for service.
  • Keep Up with Maintenance- Regular maintenance is important on any equipment you own, and your garage door is no exception. Things wear out over time with the repetitive motion of cycling a couple of times a day or more.
