Some helpful advice!
Here are a few suggestions that could prove very helpful during times of need regarding garage door operation, maintenance, and more!
Disconnect the opener when you work
It's not safe to repair garage door parts or to even check them without having disconnected the electric garage door opener first. Many things could go wrong. Either an accidental press on the clicker or a sudden power outage. Always make sure to disconnect the opener before proceeding with anything else.
Learn the complete features of your garage door
Newer and more sophisticated garage doors have many features, including emergency release and other safety mechanisms. However, not all owners take the time to study them and their proper operation. Many accidents can be avoided simply by reading the user manual that comes with the garage door and learning how to use the emergency release correctly.
Protect your garage with weather seals
Weather seals are extremely important for the good insulation of both your garage and your entire house. In fact, our company's experts in Woodinville say that the bottom seal must be replaced periodically. A worn seal could allow drafts and pesky insects to plague your home.
Understand what R-value means
It is important to understand what R-Value in garage door means. This value is the measurement of the thermal efficiency characteristics of your garage door. The higher the value, the higher the insulating property of your door is. Understanding the R-value fit for your garage is important when selecting which type of door is best applicable for your garage space.
Maximize headroom space
In order to maximize the space of the headroom in your garage, a custom made garage door could be preferable, rather than a model-built one. Tracks and other components for spaces with low headroom are also available upon request, to make sure that garage door and opener installation is possible despite the limitations presented by a contained space.
