Get the right cable drums
Every single garage mechanism has slight differentiations and the length of cables will also depend on the height of the door. Cable drums are different, too. Standard overhead door systems will need flat cable drums that are only raised at the corners. High lift overhead systems will need drums with one flat portion and one raised one while vertical lift systems will need raised cable drums.
Moving Parts Need Lubrication
These moving parts include hinges, bolts, nuts and screws. They serve as joins to your garage door. Therefore, they need proper lubrication to make sure that they can still function accordingly. Lubrication should also be done periodically. As a matter of fact, it is important to schedule the lubrication process for your garage door and its components.
How to choose the best opener
You care to find openers suitable for your garage doors. They must have sufficient horsepower to operate the heavy door. Choose whether you need a noisy chain drive garage door opener or a silent belt one and, most importantly, make sure you add as many sensors as possible to keep all dangers away. You'll enjoy a safer house!
Don't let children play in the garage
Garages are very attractive to little kids because they hide all sorts of things but also dangers. According to the statistical data gathered, most victims of garage door accidents are kids. For this reason, avoid letting them play with the remote controls and schedule garage door maintenance often. Check the sensors frequently and teach them about the threats.
