The following tips can help you take better care of your overhead garage door and all of its components. Our expert technicians have over two decades' worth of experience repairing and replacing openers and springs, and as a result, there are a lot of useful pieces of advice we can offer you.
Check the spring if you hear a loud bang coming from the garage
There is a reason a broken garage door spring is hard to miss. The loud BANG it causes when it breaks will be impossible to miss. The noise results from the release of tension stored in the spring. Remember that you should never attempt to repair these components by yourself as they can be extremely dangerous.
Test your opener sensors properly
It's wise to test the garage door opener sensors often but according to our experts, you must do it without actually touching them. Place an object under the door and then order it to close. If your door refuses or starts to but then reverses immediately, then the sensors have detected the obstacle. Otherwise, contact our team to have our technicians perform the careful sensors realignment procedure for you.
Perform regular door balance tests
To do this, you need to disengage your opener and lift the door halfway up and let it go. If it moves up or down automatically, even only slightly, then you'll need to get your springs adjusted. They are either too loose or too tight, depending on how your door reacted. In either case, professional assistance is required. Call our team to get it done safely.
