Useful Garage Door Tips

We’ve put together some free advice to help you take the best possible care of your garage door. These simple tips make garage door ownership that much safer and easier – read more below!

Learn how to use the home connectivity features

Newer garage door opener models have advanced features of home connectivity and many manufacturers have proprietary applications that enable the consumer to use them. Some people find it easy to adjust to the new technology while for others it may seem like a daunting experience. These features are extremely beneficial for increased security and safety in your home so if you should take the time to familiarize yourself with them.

Keep children away from your garage door

Children love to play with almost anything and can think a garage door opener is a toy. Never allow them to play with the remote control or opener as serious injury can result. Be sure to mount interior push-button controls at least five feet from the floor and teach them to keep their fingers away from your door's sections, especially when it is in motion. For more tips and additional safety recommendations, call our technicians today. We're the garage door experts you can trust.

Lubricate your door hinges often

One of the easiest and best things you can do to prolong the life of your garage door and keep it operating properly is to lubricate the hinges often. However, always use the right kind of lubricant like silicone spray or white lithium grease. Never use WD-40, engine oil or mechanic's grease. These products will allow dust and dirt to build up and create additional problems you don't need to have. Give our experts a call for any questions, additional information, or to schedule a service visit.

Galvanized materials need lubrication

Investing in galvanized materials is prudent since they will last longer than non-galvanized equivalents, and you won't have to deal with rusty garage door parts. However, these materials need lubrication maintenance, too. There's a small chance that small cracks on the zinc plated material will cause steel to erode, the right lubricant can protect them from cracking.
