Our FAQ page covers a wide range of important topics. If you are looking for answers to common questions about automatic garage doors, you've come to the right place.
What are the main issues with garage door tracks?
Misalignment of the vertical and horizontal sections may occur because of loose brackets. This is why it’s important to check the bolts regularly and tighten them, if needed. Bending may also occur, with the risk increasing as the thickness of the components decreases. In rare cases, tracks can break. This usually happens as a result of an accident or a bent section left without repair.
What can cause a garage door opener to stop working?
Most often, the issue is with the motor or the electronic components. An internal motor component could be damaged or broken. Alternatively, the logic board may have failed. In any of these cases, replacing the part will make your opener run smoothly again. It is much less likely for the drive’s belt, chain or rod to snap, especially if the component is inspected closely during regular maintenance.
How can I tell if my garage door springs are worn?
