My garage door won't open? What do I do?
If you are having issues with a garage door that is "stuck," meaning that it won't open or close, there are some steps you can take on your own to determine the source of the issue. We recommend making sure that nothing is blocking the photo eye, double-checking the power connection, and testing the remote. If after these checks, your door is still not operating properly, you should call a local professional for diagnostics and repair.
Does my garage door require maintenance?
Preventative maintenance is key to prolonging the life of your garage door and keep it operating at peak performance for years to come. There are necessary steps to keep your door maintained properly, and these practices will differ depending on the style of door you have. For all types of doors, rollers should be inspected every 6 months and replaced if any deterioration is identified. Weatherstripping should be cleaned and lubricated every 2-3 months. To keep painted doors looking polished and to protect from the elements, you should repaint every few years. For more information on the recommended maintenance for your door, contact our team.
