We have some advice to share that can help you keep using your automatic garage door for a lot longer. Take a look at these tips to learn what you need to do.
Change the weather seals at the first sign of trouble
The weather-stripping material at the bottom and sides of your garage door keeps outside weather conditions at bay, and also helps to insulate your garage. While it may sound insignificant, a new seal will prevent rain, dust and snow from getting inside your garage, while a worn one, or one that's torn, will not serve you as well.
Invest in an opener with good safety features
Modern garage door openers today come equipped with all kinds of safety features. If your system is particularly old, it may well be time to upgrade to a new unit and take advantage of this new technology - safety reversal, rolling code keys and more.
Make safety your goal
Safety should be your first priority and that's why regular garage door maintenance and inspection is vital. It's important to check your sensors and the springs now and again. If you have children, our recommendation is also to keep the clicker far from them and to encourage them to play away from the door.
