Professional Garage Door Maintenance Tips
Our experts have some helpful pieces of advice that can help increase your garage door's longevity. Be sure to read them all.
Inspect your rollers for cracks or damage
The rollers on your garage door should be inspected at least twice a year and will probably need to be replaced about every seven years. When they become cracked, chipped, or excessively worn, contact our experts to have the proper replacement rollers installed. At the same time, our technicians can make a complete inspection of your door to make sure it operates at peak efficiency.
Test the garage door spring regularly
You should disconnect the opener first. Then you need to lift the door half way to the top. Ideally, it should stay in place. If it moves up or down, the spring tension has to be adjusted. You should also inspect the spring more thoroughly for rust and other possible types of damage.
Learn how to use the emergency release cord
The release cord is usually colored red, so that it can stand out. It is used to disengage the opener from its automatic operation, in order to allow you to open the door manually. Our garage door contractor in Burbank recommends learning how to use it because it can be pivotal during emergency scenarios.
