Basic Garage Door Suggestions

The following useful pieces of advice will offer you some effective solutions and improved ways to take care of your garage door and all of its parts. Our experts have a wealth of knowledge and experience to share with you.

Consider getting an oil tempered torsion spring

This type of spring is made from a steel wire which has been dipped in hot oil beforehand. This helps to considerably reduce its friction during operation without the need for more frequent lubrication. As a result, these types of garage door springs can last for a lot longer before they break, even if the door is used more often than average.

Inspect the condition of your garage door weatherstripping regularly

The best way to do this is to turn off the lights in your garage and close the door fully while there's still light outside. If any sunlight passes around the weatherstripping, including the bottom seal, they should be replaced. These parts are used to not only help you maintain a desired indoor temperature and prevent rain and snow from entering your garage but also to keep a lot of pesky pests at bay.

Keep the control panel out of your child's reach

Although garage door openers can offer a lot of conveniences, in the wrong hands they can be dangerous. It is recommended that you have the wall mounted panel installed at least five feet from the floor. That way no small child will be able to reach it easily. You should also keep your garage door remote out of the reach of your children.

Change your garage door’s access codes from the default setting

Some garage door opener models have the same default access codes when they ship out of the factory. If you don't bother to change your initial code, anyone who knows what the factory's reset setting is will be able to use your opener at will.
