Basic, general maintenance
Your garage door is the largest moving part of your home, so keep it operating efficiently by performing regular maintenance and preventative care. Check your door system monthly by carefully examining the opener, springs, rollers, cables and pulleys for unusual wear. Make sure it's balanced and lubricated properly. And, if you're unsure about whether you're doing everything exactly right, give our technicians a call. We'll walk you step by step through the entire process and even do it for you as part of our regular maintenance plan.
Maintaining garage door motors
It is necessary to check the motor if there are loose parts. If the motor produces a different whining and grinding noise, it is because of a possible malfunction. Our technician can check and help replace the part rather than change the entire motor. You must check the motor for visible damages like cracks, frayed cords, symptoms of burning, and even rodent infestation.
Electric Garage Doors Are Unsafe For Children
More so than any other kind of garage door, your children need to steer clear from an electric garage door. The cables connected to an electric garage door are extremely dangerous and you need to make sure that your children are taught never to go near or play around it.
Be careful of worn opener wires
People often forget to check the wires of garage door openers but they also get worn over the years and you will find that some are also chewed by animals. Such problems will constitute the basis for worse issues regarding the safe operation of the mechanism. The wires may also be affected by the weather conditions and it's also important to check the wires of the sensors.
Get the right motor horsepower
Garage door openers come in variations and are designed to serve garage doors of specific types, heights and weights. Our experts in Watauga suggest ½ horsepower for residential openers but if you have a heavier carriage or commercial door, you might need ¾ horsepower.
Did you check the sensors?
They are responsible for your safety and, hence, you must make sure they are facing each other and are connected with the opener properly.
Deal with rust on the garage door immediately
Rust is the worst enemy of metals because it doesn't ruin only the color but the material, too. Small signs can be easily removed according to the advice of Garage Door Repair Watauga and you would need to apply coatings, which would make the material more resistant to elements. If the damage is huge, you will need to proceed with garage door panel replacement.
