Maintaining your door is a balancing act
You should get into the habit of checking your garage door’s balance about once a month. To do this, you need to close your garage door and disengage the opener. Now, manually open your door halfway. You should be able to do this easily, and it should be able to stay hanging in place. If you’re struggling, or if it doesn’t stay open, the springs could need some adjustment, or may even need to be replaced. Contact our team to get it done safely and quickly.
Check the opener's safety sensors on a monthly basis
Checking the opener sensors on a regular basis is imperative for safety reasons. The reverse mechanism can actually prevent accidents when it's working correctly. That's why it's a good idea to place an object under the closing door every month and check to ensure that the system reverses properly. If it doesn't, you need to contact us right away.
