We Know How to Fix Things Right
Make sure the sensors are aligned
Garage door opener sensors are installed in the lower sides of the door to see the tiniest obstruction. In order for them to do their work right, they must see one another. If one of the lights is off or the reverse mechanism doesn't work, they require adjustment.
Avoid fixing tracks alone
Garage door track repair is not as easy as it seems. The most common problem is dents, which can be fixed with hammers and similar tools but if the job is not done right, our ardent technicians advise there would be a problem in the way rollers move.
Is it safe to use an old track for a new door?
If you are considering garage door replacement and you are tempted to use your old garage door track and save money, think again. The old track may not be suitable to the new door, considering the thickness of the sections, the door’s weight, the headroom required, etc. It is best to use the track designed for your new garage door.
Garage door tracks should not be lubricated
Lubrication maintenance is a basic routine for the moving parts. However, some parts should not have lubricant applied, including the garage door tracks. Spraying on a WD 40 on the tracks, for example, will cause particulate matter that hardens over time to collect and complicate the operation of your garage door.
The torsion spring has to match the size and weight of the door
Both the length and diameter of the component have to be big enough to enable it to lift the door. The professionals at our garage door recommend that close attention is paid to the wire size as well. The bigger it is the stronger the spring is.
