So make sure the you keep up on the maintenance of your overhead garage door and the garage door opener system as well. You will also want to make sure that you repair anything broken right away as this will also prevent other problems from happening as well.

Four Basic Repair And Maintenance Tips For Your Garage Door.

Here is a list of four basic repair and maintenance tips that will help you to avoid any other problems from occurring in the future.

Check Transmitter Batteries Yearly

There is nothing worse than hitting that open or close button on on your garage door opener remote or keypad and nothing happening. To prevent this from happening change your batteries in all transmitters yearly. If you notice that you have to be right up on the garage door for the remote to work then chances are that you more than likely need new batteries.

Keep All Photo Eye Sensors cleaned And Properly Aligned

The photo eye sensors can be easily knocked out of place by any little thing such as basketballs rolling into it or bikes and even the trash cans while you are bringing them in and out from the curb. So just be very careful and try not to bump it and knock it out of place and try not to keep anything stored near it either. Make sure that the sensors stay clean of dust and debris as well because that can cause them not to work right also.

Keep The Hinges And Track Of The Garage Door Clean And Free Of Gunk

Garage-Door-Tracks

The tracks of your garage door can easily become gunked up by all kinds of stuff like dirt, debris and dust. This kind of obstruction can cause build up in the track and cause the door not to work properly or not to work at all. Once in awhile take some time and clean your track of all that build up, you can use a broom or a hose and even a damp rag to wipe away all the build up.  

Don’t Attempt To Adjust A Torsion Spring By Yourself

The torsion spring is an important part of the garage door operating system, if you find that your torsion spring is broken call a professional out to fix it. The torsion spring is a dangerous part to repair if you do not know what you are doing, you need special training to be able to repair the spring.

They sent Doug Fussell out to my house on the day after Christmas! I had only called them three days before! Doug was a premier technician, very thorough and very efficient. I expected him to take two days, since he was replacing two doors and adding openers on each door. He only took the daylight hours of one day! I could not believe how fast he was! In addition, he thoroughly taught me how to use the remote openers. I highly recommend them to anyone!

We just bought a home and this company was so understanding as I had to change the appointment time a few times. Then the tech came out and was so kind and helpful. I could not have asked for a better experience and will suggest them to anyone who needs work done on their garage door!

My garage door broke on a Saturday night as I was getting ready to leave for a holiday party. Kelvin was here within 30 minutes. He reviewed everything with me that was happening with my door. He gave me the estimates of what was immediately needed to be done in order for my door to raise and then what I will need to have done very soon. I could see all the problems he pointed out to me and I decided to have everything done. He completed everything that night. I was very satisfied with Kelvin’s professionalism and the work he did. Thank you again.
