Garage Doors: Before
Homeowners with broken automatic garage door openers, or those older homes that never installed an electric automatic garage door opener are accustomed to lifting and closing their garage door with elbow grease, human power that is. But now they have to make sure their garage door is locked, especially when they go on vacation. This is especially troublesome when a garage is attached to the house, because the garage is a great place for the cat burglar to hide while picking the lock on the door from the garage to the kitchen. So when making sure your home is secure you might miss this entry point, your garage door. You can lock and bolt every window and door but the garage makes for a hidden point of entry.
Having a garage is quite convenient, your vehicle stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter and is out of the wear and tear of the sun and rain. Garage door openers were designed initially for homeowners who lived in areas prone to a lot of rain so the driver did not have to get out of the car in pouring storms to open the garage door. The joy of watching a garage door go open and close thrilled children but eventually accidents occurred, even cars half in or out of the garage collided with the door leading to scratched paint and broken windshields. Today’s garage doors are supplied with sensors and electric eyes that prevent the door from closing on cars and pets. Your door should be checked frequently and maintained to assure all the safety mechanisms operate smoothly.
Qualified garage door service personnel can do an extensive, detailed check of the counter-balance system, inspect the cables, springs, and tracks. They also lubricate rails, tracks, hinges, brackets and rollers. Most importantly they have the tools and knowledge to check if the reversing sensors which may include electric eyes and motor force detectors. Reversing sensors are a safety feature on garage door openers that make the door reverse at the first sign of trouble.
Old doors contain other parts that can break down or even make the door a danger. Old torsion springs and frayed door cables may need to be replaced. If your cables are worn they are at risk of breaking. Let an expert check and maintain your garage door. Trained technicians who do these things for a living will fix and install doors, automatic openers and containment cables for extension springs. A containment cable loops through the extension springs and should is connected to the wall or the ceiling. They prevent injuries if the spring breaks and are an effective piece of safety equipment. Don’t try to handle springs and use a professional to adjust and install the bottom brackets. The bottom brackets on a garage door connected to springs are under immense tension. Repairs and
maintenance is definitely worth doing right, a wrongly maintained garage door can be as much a liability as a poorly installed garage door. Check your garage door for loose parts and listen for creaking, squeaking and scraping. Watch for shaking or rattling as these are signs that your door needs to be maintained.
