How can I make sure my garage door continues to work all year long?
To be sure that your garage door stays in a good working condition you need to take on some regular maintenance activities. Clean it occasionally with a mild solution of soap and water using a sponge or cloth to remove dirt or mud. Some parts can be lubricated but make sure you use the right products according to your owner's manual, as the wrong material can cause problems.
How do I recognize a torsion spring of good quality?
It is best if the component is made of galvanized steel so that it is resistant to corrosion. Check the wire size. The bigger it is, the stronger the spring will be. Pay close attention to the life expectancy as well. The greater it is, the longer the component will work before breaking. The majority of springs have a lifespan of 10,000 work cycles.
What dimensions should I measure when buying a door?
According to our specialists, you need to measure almost every section of your garage and its opening. This includes headroom, side rooms, depth, width, and height. The material from which your new door will be made also needs to be taken into consideration. Wood and aluminum will be lighter than steel, for example, and will require less horsepower to operate smoothly. This affects whether you will require a new opener or not.
How should I clean my wooden garage door?
A wooden garage door should be cleaned carefully since wood can be sensitive and gets damaged easily. Also, strong detergents and water pressure can cause damage instead of just cleaning your garage door. Applying a new coat of paint to your door after cleaning it thoroughly can help preserve it better.
