When a garage door is nearing the end of its lifespan, it may give off a few warning signs. One of these warning signs is closing on its own, when no one has pressed the button. This is actually very concerning and warrants immediate attention, as a door closing on its own could cause harm to you, your family, your pets, or even your vehicles and equipment stored within the space. Other signs include a lack of response or delayed response when pressing the button to open or close the door, a door that suddenly pauses in its motion when it’s going up or down, or a misalignment in the track.
Tips to Make Garage Door Replacement Go Smoothly
At 31-W Insulation, we know that any investment you make into your home can include a bit of anxiety about how the process will be carried out and if there is anything you should do to help it go more smoothly. So that you can best prepare for and understand garage door replacement, we thought we’d share a few tips.
- Move Vehicles- You can avoid a delay in your garage door replacement by already having your vehicles moved out of the garage and preferably away from the garage door entirely to leave us room to work and avoid the potential for damage to your vehicle.
- Clear Garage- You do not have to remove everything from your garage, but if you do have a lot stored in your garage that would be in the way of our team, we advise moving it out of the garage. It will only be for a few hours, so putting everything inside your home is generally a good solution, although you could also take it to a storage facility.
- Contain Pets- This tip is as much for the safety of your pet as it is our garage door replacement team. A pet underfoot could also cause something to go wrong because the installer was distracted at the worst possible moment.
- Safeguard Children- While children listen better than pets do (sometimes), it is still best to keep them out of the work area for their safety. A curious child can often get too close for comfort.
