Answers to Questions Asked by Garage Door Owners
Welcome to our FAQ page designed to give you the answers you are seeking and more in the form of explanations, useful details and practical advice you can apply to your own home. We’re always here to help you.
What's causing my garage door to reverse instead of closing normally?
One of the most common causes of this problem is bent or blocked tracks. This will prevent the rollers from being able to move along them smoothly. Another possible issue could be the safety sensors. If they have become misaligned, they could be falsely detecting a problem, which will explain why your door keeps opening back up instead of closing.
Will a new garage door improve the value of my home?
Buying the right door has a possibility of increasing the value of your property. Wooden doors are known for their great curb-appeal, for example. Also, if you choose a state of the art automatic door opener, this upgrade will certainly add value to your home, as it will offer improved security and safety. Our experts can help you pick the perfect system.
Can other people use their remotes to operate my garage door?
Yes. While the chances are slim, according to our experts, it is not an impossibility. Some products have a default code that the owners never bother to change, which means anyone with a similar remote could potentially operate their opener. This is why many garage door opener manufacturers have started implementing rolling code technology into their products. That means the codes the remote and opener use to communicate will change randomly each time you use them.
How do I remove rust from my garage door?
There are several types of rust removal products that you can buy at the store. However, you need to make sure your door material isn't going to be damaged by them. Consult your owner's manual to be sure. You can also use sandpaper or a scrub to remove the top layer of rust and then wipe the last thin part with the appropriate solution. Some types of materials can be applied with a rust-resistant coating.
