Maintaining your garage door opener
To properly maintain a garage door opener, the following should be included: A reversal test, force setting test, and evaluation of additional safety functions. The reversal and force setting tests are meant to confirm the condition of the compulsory safety features. If it has been a while since you've had these tests performed, get in touch with us for a regular maintenance appointment.
Don't attempt to replace a snapped spring
Even if you disengage the opener during the replacement procedure there will still be a fairly high risk of accident during a spring replacement job if you are untrained in this area. It can actually be dangerous with the potential to cause further damage to your system if something goes wrong. Leave this to the experts.
Choose replacement hinges carefully
The garage door hinges bear a lot of weight which makes them vulnerable to wear and tear. When a replacement is required, our experts recommend that you precisely select the same parts or ones which have the same design, features and properties. Make sure that you pick suitable hinges for the type of door that you have.
