Interested in some professional advice? Then give the following tips a look. Remember to give our experts a call if you're dealing with some garage door problems. We can take care of anything from a broken torsion spring to a non-responsive opener.
Keep your passwords a secret
If you're using smart technology for your garage door opener that allows you to open and close your garage door via smartphone, keep your passwords a secret. In the event of needing to give access to a friend or a relative while you are out of town, assign them their own user specific code. Never forget that a well-known password is like giving potential thieves a key to your home.
Resetting the opener
If your garage door opener is not functioning properly, you may have to reset it. Our experts recommend that you check the manufacturer’s manual to ascertain the steps to reset your unit. However, most resets require the unit to be turned off and unplugged before powering it back on.
Have your wooden door re-coated from time to time
If you own a wooden door, you probably already know that it's a good idea to stain it periodically in order to protect it from the harsh weather conditions outside. Depending on the climate you live in, this re-coating is likely to act as a shield against extreme temperature fluctuations.
Keep your garage door remote safe at all times
It is a good idea to keep your remote on a keychain that you carry with you always. You shouldn't leave it in your car in case intruders manage to obtain access. Another good option is to explore smartphone operated options, this way you can use your phone to open and close your door from wherever you are. To learn more, just get in touch!
