Below are some tips and advice for keeping your garage door system working well, courtesy of our very own professional technicians - after all, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!
Learn all the different functions of your opener
Today’s garage door openers have a range of advanced features that can let you monitor and control the device from anywhere. You can open and close the door, change the codes and even turn the lights on with a motion detector feature. It's a good idea to familiarize yourself with all the different functions, because they can make your life a lot more convenient. You can check your manual for more information.
Ensure your garage door alarm system is clearly visible
This will act as a deterrent for criminal activity. If your garage door doesn't look secure, you might attract more frequent break-in attempts. Let potential burglars know your door is seriously protected by having the alarm system out in the open somewhere high up. Even having a "This home is protected by..." type of sticker or sign that many alarm system companies provide can be a deterrent factor.
Don't wait to replace damaged garage door panels
The damage makes it easy for thieves to break in and exposes your car and other stored belongings to the elements. Besides, things like rust and rot can spread surprisingly quickly. Timely garage door panel replacement is the better option compared to providing basic repair the results of which may be questionable and won't last as long.
