You asked. We Answered!
Our experts offer answers to some of the most common questions every homeowner wants to ask a professional garage door technician.
Can another person’s remote control operate my garage door?
Not with a new opener usually, as long as you make sure to change the starting access codes so they're different from the factory's default set. However, if you have an older remote, this can unfortunately happen. Contact our technicians and we can help you choose a remote that uses rolling codes that change your access code each time the unit is used.
Will I have problems if I decide to repaint my steel garage door?
No, not if you use a high-quality latex exterior house paint and make sure that the door’s surface is cleaned thoroughly. Today’s steel doors are painted with a tough topcoat layer that is perfectly suited for repainting. However, before repainting, why not check out our selection of pre-painted doors to see if we already have one in stock that will suit your needs perfectly.
What are the key factors in maintaining an overhead garage door?
Garage door repair specialists in Burbank recommend homeowners regularly check and inspect rollers, springs and cables. The cables should be connected properly and the rollers and springs' function should be smooth. Lubricating is also essential, and should be performed annually if not more frequently. You can use a light silicone or lithium lubricant spray on the chain, roller and springs.
