Garage Door Installation

Why You Should Call a Professional for Garage Door Installation?

So you made the decision to invest in a new garage door and you’ve decided on the type and material of the door. It’s an investment, one that should provide at least 30 years of security and beauty to your home. Now make the investment count by hiring a professional to do the garage door installation. Here are a few reasons why you don’t want to do this job yourself.

For starters, using a professional is a safety issue. These doors weigh hundreds of pounds, which make it difficult to lift as well as to install. Do it wrong and the door can come crashing down at any time, perhaps even crushing the car while the family is still inside it.

Garage Door Repair 101: Fixing a Slow Moving Door

Does your garage door open too slowly? This is a common garage door maintenance issue. It could be that the speed of your opener needs to be adjusted. The door might also be sticking and only require lubrication of its mechanisms. Start by removing the panel of your opener to hand adjust the speed setting. Most are set to the lowest speed and can be adjusted by a screw that you turn with a flat headed screw driver. If this still doesn’t do the trick, get yourself some silicone lubricant (not WD40!) and oil the hinges, roller mount brackets and roller pins. Also apply oil to the track. Open and close the door several times to distribute the oil all over.
