How often should I have my garage door serviced?
Your garage door is the largest, heaviest object within your entire home. With this in mind, you can see why it requires regular servicing. In order to ensure you have a fully working door, it should be serviced at least once a year. Hearing noises is the initial warning to take further action. Remember, you can extend the life of your door by calling for a professional.
How long should my garage door springs last?
Most torsion springs have a common life cycle of 10,000 uses. Steel springs experience incredible force every time they’re used, causing them to gradually fatigue over time. If one of your springs breaks, this is a good indication the others are on their way out too, especially if they were installed together.
Why does nothing happen when I press my garage door remote button?
This is usually a problem when there’s no electricity running to your opener. To check, plug a different device into the socket and check for power. If the lamp turns on, this suggests a mechanical fault with the door itself. If it doesn’t turn on, it is an issue with your power supply.
How do I choose a new opener?
The main thing when choosing a new garage door opener is to make sure it is compliant with the safety UL 325 regulations. It must have an emergency release cord and safety sensors. Asides from this, you should investigate the differences between the drive types available - belt, screw and chain drives are all available depending on the level of maintenance and sound you want to deal with.
