Basic Garage Door Tips

Scroll down for practical tips relating to your garage door - provided by our experts, you'll find advice regarding how best to look after your system and more.

Don't skimp when investing in new springs

This is important since there is typically a trade-off between the cycle life and the price. Put simply, the cheaper springs are likely to fail more quickly, leaving with you a potential breakdown on your hands - if you're not sure which replacement springs to opt for, get in touch with our team for guidance.

Put safety first

When it comes to garage doors, safety must be your first priority. Our best advice is to take care of worn garage door parts sooner rather than later, don't stand under the overhead door, and refrain from repairing springs by yourself - these parts can be very dangerous to handle!

Keep the garage door remote in good condition

Replace the batteries with new ones on a regular basis. Clean the plastic covering over the infrared unit to prevent dirt from affecting the performance of the clicker. You should also check the battery contacts - dry them if they're wet and polish them if you notice rust dots.

Clean your garage door metal parts with a good solvent

A good solvent will remove dirt and rust, and leave the tracks, rollers, hinges and other parts in excellent condition. The citrus-based solvents are an excellent choice because they are powerful yet gentle and safe to use too.
