The automatic garage door is typically the largest moving system in a person’s home. Don’t let that frighten you, though! Ensure smooth operation and perfect safety and security with the help of the tips shared here.
Don't throw away your manual
After a few years of happy use, you may be tempted to throw away your owner's manual. It's always a good idea to keep it regardless of how old your garage door is. You never know when a quick look at the manual could save you some precious time, so it's best to have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.
Check your door's safety features regularly
You and your family members walk in and out of your garage all the time. Odds are you pay very little mind to the potential dangers involved. That's why it's important that you check your door's reversal mechanism frequently to make sure it will reverse if something gets in the door's path. Doing this is easy – place an object under the open door and order it to close. If it refuses, or if it starts to close but then reverses, the safety reversal system is likely functioning correctly.
Consider the advantages each material has to offer
When choosing a new garage door, the material the panels will be made of matters a great deal. Wood, for example, will be more beautiful, but will also require more frequent maintenance. Steel offers durability but can develop rust, so it may not be an optimal choice for homes in humid locations. Aluminum s incredibly light, but will easily dent.
