If your garage door needs tune-up, read here the best maintenance tips and practical solutions to problems
Follow these tips and you will be sure about your garage door and other related decisions you make
Learn how to use the emergency release cord
It's called emergency release cord because it's used during emergencies. If you don't know how to use it, it won't be of any use when you will need to free someone trapped under the door. In such cases, you will need to pull it down to disconnect the opener and open the door manually.
What to Watch for With Glass Garage Doors
Having an all-glass garage door can be a real treat because of how clean it looks. However, there are dangers to using a glass garage door. Large dogs who love running around could crash into the garage door and shatter the glass. Exercise caution, especially when there are children.
Check your door’s sensitivity
Garage door openers are supposed to reverse as soon as the door comes in contact with an obstruction as it descends. If the door doesn’t readily reverse once it hits an obstruction, something may be wrong with its sensitivity, which can be quite dangerous. Check your product manual to learn how to adjust the sensitivity.
Not always the opener’s fault
If it looks like your garage door needs two hands to open it, even though you have an opener installed, it does not necessarily mean that your opener is not strong enough. There may be a problem with the door itself. Have one of our experts from Garage Door Repair Rancho Cordova diagnose the problem.
