Interested in choosing a new garage door or questions regarding your existing system? Find out the answers to your questions by browsing our tips section - we explain why you should replace damaged parts fast and more.
Check your springs if the door has started to open slowly
If the springs are intact, you should check their tension. Release the door from the opener and lift it halfway to open position. When you let go, the door should not move. If it drops quite a bit, this may mean that the springs need to be adjusted.
Choose a more powerful opener for a heavy, wood door
Wood is the heaviest of all materials so it makes sense to get a more powerful opener motor that has enough horsepower to operate the door. If you're unsure what to go for, just consult one of our professionals who'll be able to advise on your needs.
Choose the right material for your door
Don't forget that different materials are affected differently by the weather - for example, you won't want to deal with warped wood a couple of years after garage door installation. Take into consideration the needs of the material in terms of maintenance as well as the climate you live in.
Replace worn parts immediately
Broken and seriously damaged garage door parts can create major problems for the operation of the system if left alone for too long. If not immediately replaced, these broken components can increase the risk an accident occurs so it's always a good idea to be swift when tackling problems like these.
