How do I make my garage door safer?
If you're looking to increase the security of your garage door system, it may be a good idea to seek out an opener capable of automatically changing your codes with each use. This makes it harder for intruders to gain access. Further, make sure you do not leave the opener remote on show in your car and avoid attempting potentially dangerous DIY. Lastly, you should ensure that your wall mounted door opener is out of reach of children and that your safety sensors and reversal function are working as they should.
Taking care of your garage door system
Just like many other mechanical moving parts, garage door system components can wear out over time. In order to stop it from breaking down too quickly, we recommend regular lubrication and professional inspections now and again to stave off potential future problems.
Choose your replacement garage door tracks carefully
When it's time to replace your garage door tracks, check your current system to confirm the right size. You should also pay attention to whether you need to go for curved, vertical or horizontal models. Other factors include width, thickness and whether you wish to go for stainless or plain steel tracks. Most of the time it's safer to get a professional involved to help you make the right choice.
