Significant considerations in garage door repair03/09/2015 Back To Blog
Since the garage door is large, and in fact the largest moving part in your home, the frequent use and heavy weight of the door can lead to operational difficulties. Unless you perform regular maintenance and repair, keeping it operating smoothly is difficult. Here are some considerations you should be aware of.
Because of the heavy weight, efficient and safe operation depends on the proper design and utility of the garage door motor and the other parts. When you exert excess weight on the door, it can affect the garage door parts. Heavy objects should not be hanged on the door, nor should objects be placed on tracks. This can obstruct the movement of the door and prevent its smooth operation.
Faulty garage door springs is one of the common problems encountered by our garage door repair experts. The springs are vital for proper opening of the door. The heavy door weight exerts pressure on the cables, springs and other parts that the springs are connected to. When the springs are broken or damaged, it can cause injuries or damage.
In case the fault is in the springs, it is necessary to replace both spring pairs, even if only one is broken or damaged. Installing the right size, type and length of the spring in relation to the garage door type is necessary to avoid damage to springs. The experts in our garage door repair service will guide you and recommend the right springs for your door.
If you find that the door is damaged or not functioning properly, using it is risky as it can cause injuries to pets, children and the operator. Fixing the door with the help of our professional specialist will ensure safe and proper operation at all times.
Repair of garage doors require expertise, experience and safety gear. If you attempt to repair the door on your own, you could get injured, or worse, invite fatal consequences. Letting our expert garage door contractor handle the repair is the safest and best way to get your door operating smoothly.
