How should I clean my garage door?

Use mild household soap or detergent mixed with warm water when washing your garage door, then rinse with water. It would also be good to wipe it dry instead of letting the water just drip. According to our experts in garage door repair Livingston, spraying the garage door with water using a hose is not enough to clean the microscopic dirt buildup.

What are the differences of garage door opener types?

The most common garage door types include overhead, rollup, sliding, and swinging in different directions. Different garage door materials include wood, fiberglass, steel, and aluminum. Garage door openers also have different types. These choices all have their own advantages and the choice is based on your preference.

How do I lubricate my door?

When lubricating your door, you should apply a small of amount of a lubricating solution on the tracks, rollers, and hinges of the door. You can check the manual for the right lubricating solution as certain parts only require lubrication and all types of lubricants cannot be used.

What are important things to remember when installing the photoelectric eye system?

When installing the photoelectric eye system of a door opener, it is important to ensure that the locations where the components are installed are not easily reached by dirt or other factors that may accidentally block the sensor. The receiving sensor should also be positioned in some place that does not get directly hit by sunlight.

Why is the garage door rail size important?

This component is an integral part of the opener system as it houses the drive chain, belt or screw. Its length has to correspond to the height of the overhead door. This will make it possible for the door to be fully opened without having any panels hanging above the entryway and posing safety risk.

What is an opener mobile application?

This is an app enabling you to control your opener and consequently to operate the whole garage door remotely via your smartphone or tablet. You can open and close the door and monitor it too. In order for it to work, both the opener and the other device have to be connected to the internet. The opener has to be equipped with a special gateway device. There are also models that come with integrated Wi-Fi.

When is opener replacement better than repair?

When the device is too damaged and cannot be fixed, you will need a new one. Similarly, if replacement is the more cost-efficient option, you should definitely go for it. The technicians of our garage door repair company in Livingston recommend that you consider replacing an old device which is in poor condition with a new one having more advanced safety and security features.

How do I know if my garage door is balanced?

To check that your garage door is well balanced, it must first be detached from the opener. If you're going to do this on your own, make sure that your door is down or closed, then detach the opener by pulling on the release cord. Then, with one hand, lift the door up and stop just at the middle position. The door should stay at this midpoint and not go up or down.
