Correcting your garage door’s bouncing motion
When your garage door often starts and suddenly stops when you raise it, your floor may end up damaged by the door’s bouncing motion which is often caused by a malfunctioning garage door motor or by an obstruction in the belt drive. Check for any obstructions and remove it. It there are no obstructions seen it may be time to check your motor.
Weather seal installation
Weather seals length ranges from 10 to 30 feet so get the right length for your door. Leave your garage door in a safe and steady open position and reach the bottom so you can remove the old weather seal. Measure the width of the door and divide it in half to get the center.
Install safety cables
Extension springs and particularly torsion spring garage door systems will be safer with the installation of safety cables. Springs may break for various reasons and the safety cables will keep them from snapping. That's the main issue when it comes to the dangers of garage door springs and, thus, the safety cables will protect you from getting injured from a flying spring. That's why they're called safety cables.
Place the switch button high
If you are using remote controls for the activation of the garage door opener, make sure to place the switch wall button at a high spot. This way, you will protect your kids from reaching to the button and play games with the moving garage door.
Deal with rust at an early stage
It's good to check the garage door parts for rust and replace them before they make the mechanism noisy and problematic. The specialists of our garage door company in Carpinteria also recommend checking the panel, too. Rust will destroy the door panel completely.
