We are always looking for ways to share our knowledge, which is why our experts decided to create this page. The following FAQs can provide you with many useful answers that will help you maintain your garage door and keep it in great shape for many years to come.
Can I fix every part of my garage door by myself?
Not all garage door parts can be handled by inexperienced homeowners. Some of them, such as the springs and the opener, can cause injuries if mishandled, worsen existing problems or create new ones. Repairs and extensive maintenance should only be conducted by people with the proper experience and technical skills.
Can I use strong chemicals and bleach to clean my garage door?
No. A mild detergent and warm water are enough to remove dirt and dust from the surface of your garage door. Strong chemicals can affect the paint job and the material itself, which may also shorten the lifespan of your door. Consult your owner’s manual to see what kind of cleaning products are suitable for your door.
What is a multi-layer garage door design?
This type of design consists of a number of structural layers. The number of layers can range from two to five. The exterior structural layer is usually made from wood or steel. The middle layers usually consist of insulation material, while the innermost sections are often PVC overlays. The more layers, though, the heavier the door will be, which means its opener will need to be able to generate more horsepower.
What causes the door to keep reversing instead of closing?
The most common cause of this problem is misalignment of the safety sensors. Our experts explain that the issue can also be due to dirt accumulation on the photo eyes or damage to their lenses. Such problems may also arise from a broken cable or a bent track. If a new opener has been installed recently, it's also possible, though less likely, that its travel limits may have been set incorrectly.
