Test the emergency mechanism
Garage doors typically have an safety mechanism for emergencies, such as when something gets stuck while it closes. However, as an added precaution, test it every once in a while to make sure that it is working. It also helps you familiarize yourself with how the emergency mechanism works in case you might need to use it in the future.
Make sure it closes completely
Our experts advise that when you close your garage door, make sure that it is completely shut. Sometimes, owners forget to check on their garage doors after they close, especially the automatic ones, jeopardizing their safety. Water and small animals may also find their way inside your garage if you allow a small opening.
Replace the track when you replace the garage door
It is highly recommended to replace old tracks when you buy a replacement garage door. Do not use the old track on a new door, just to save some money. Your old track may not be the perfect fit for your new door and based on factors like the weight of the door, thickness of the sections, required headroom, and garage door opener location etc, the fit of the track may vary when compared to the new door. You should know that the door sections and the track work together and tracks should be used that are exclusively designed for that door.
