Whether you want to repair or replace garage doors, these tips will always be helpful.
The force setting of the door
Normally, the garage door should automatically reverse when it touches any obstruction. When you hold the door as it closes and it doesn’t reverse readily, the force may be too high. You can refer to the owner’s manual on how to adjust the force setting.
Check the balance of the door
The garage door can move smoothly if it is balanced from the top. You can check it regularly to avoid accidents. You may use the emergency release feature of your door opener to be able to lift the door by hand. Under normal circumstance, the door will lift with minimal resistance. If you are having a hard time lifting the door, please contact our experts to fix it.
Auto reversing check-up
Our experts in Passaic recommend doing a routine check-up of the auto reversing feature and all other safety mechanisms of garage door and door openers. This helps you ensure the safety and security of your home or commercial facility.
Items should be kept away from sensors
Once you know where your garage door sensors are, make sure there is nothing blocking them. Sometimes the tire of a bicycle or a trashcan might sit across from your sensor. This will stop the doors from opening. Debris can affect your sensors.
